C3yoyodesign - Krown.st
The bimetal Krown gets a renewal version, five years since its initial launch!
This is the latest and greatest signature model for 2009 1A world champion, Shinya Kido! It takes the same shape as the Krown with the addition of a stainless steel rim, but it took five years of tweaking and retooling for Shinya and C3 to finally be satisfied with the final product.
Bimetal is, as it sounds, the combination of two different metals in a yo-yo design. The body material is lighter and the weight ring is made of denser metal, giving the yo-yo a power boost thanks to physics. The result is remarkable, as you can tell by testing the monometal Krown against the Krown.st.
The Krown.st retains the same playfeel and grip of the already-excellent Krown, but everything else feels like a massive upgrade. Fans of the Krown will be pleased by this "backwards compatibility," as the Krown.st maintains a light and friendly feeling. The level-up is apparent the moment you throw it, as the feeling is both familiar and wonderfully refreshing all at once. That rounded steel rim gives a spin that you wouldn't expect from such a light throw. It plays straightforward, with a ferocity that's only matched by Shinya's performance style.
Whether it's your first bimetal throw, or a new addition to your contest tray, or just for fun, casual play, the Krown.st will quickly become one of your favorites that will help you step up your game!
The 10th Signature model for Shinya Kido. The latest model of "KROWN.st
Since 2013, when Shinya Kido joined the team, C3yoyodesign launched the signature model "KROWN". In the past 7 years, the "KROWN Series" has been formed, and each update brings you a different surprise.
Coming to 2021, we back to the origin and basic. We release the latest edition of "KROWN.st 2021".
After the "KRWON Titanium" and "ROOC", we base on original "KROWN 2019" body shape and design, and combine with large and strong stainless steel ring. Under the same shape of body, we develop 4 models in different type of material. We bring the "KRWON" into new chapter.
"KROWN 2019" was very popular in Japan and sold out many times! In 2020, we release the "KROWN Titanium" and it is also very popular. It is an opportunity for Shinya proposed C3 design team to complete "KROWN Series" in same body shape and made of a variety of materials, including the "ROOC" launched in September, and the other is the new generation of "KROWN.st" which will release in 2021. Because the body shape of the single metal of "KROWN" with stainless steel ring is very hard to design, we have carried out many prototyping and tests for a long time, seeking the most perfect match for performance and stability.
As the first Yo-Yo launched by C3 in 2021, "KROWN.st" combine the Shinya style and high speed playing. It is also a all round yoyo for everyone.
Redesign the bimetal "KROWN.st" series big straight line body shape, and keep comfortable feel of single metal "KROWN", we design the stainless steel outer ring to be rounder shape, and no more sharp edge. In addition, the 63.7 grams of stainless steel ring and aluminum alloy in new weight distribution design, the yoyo feeling is light and strong, you can feel a strong sense of explosion and speed while spinning, it is not easy to out of control when doing rail combo in high speed, the ejection movement track is super stable, and you can strongly feel the feedback while yoyo hit back on string. It is like a mixture of the character of previous bimetal KROWN.st and feeling of single metal "KROWN". "KROWN.st" bring a new feeling to the series!
Continuing the highest value outlook of "KROWN.st" with new design of iconic geometric "KROWN" logo. The first batch has brought three type of acid color with silver ring, and three single colors with silver or gold ring.
