The Fulvia was the first flagship bimetal of Luftverk, inspired to push the limits of bimetal design. This new design focuses on how a less dense titanium ring can improve the spin feel during the initial throw, combatting traditional bimetals that feel overpowering and have heavy amounts of kickback. One of the biggest aesthetic improvements was the unique lip design, made to imitate a cup sitting in water. The tension pulls upwards as defined by the term “concave meniscus”. This design element is something that I am very aesthetically proud of and hope to feature in future projects.
The goal for this project was to create a brand new experience for users that is unlike a titanium, but not as aggressive as a traditional rim weight focused steel bimetal. This is achieved by using a less dense titanium ring that forces the feel towards the floaty side.
This initial release is very limited, and this Raw iteration will not be produced again due to the difficulty in keeping the surface finish consistent between yoyos.
