OXY HYPERION! Releases Friday March 7th @ 8pm EST

Oxygène is an Italian manufacturer known for incredible precision and fantastic professional yo-yos sought out by players around the world. Having worked wonders with titanium in the past, they introduce what they now consider their latest masterpiece. The Oxy Hyperion!

The new Oxy Hyperion design is further refined and advanced from their previous titanium throws. Oxy gave their newest creation a beautiful wide H-shape profile that not only increases stability and spin time but allows for a more precision weight distribution. This new weight distribution combined with the large undercut H-shape design creates an unbelievably maneuverable play style. You can just feel the amazing control with this yo-yo, it’s almost like the Hyperion knows your next move and is pushing through your combos with a will of its own. This unmatched ease of manipulation isn’t something you normally expect from a larger yo-yo but once you throw it you know it is exactly what you want.

The Hyperion is finished with a very cool engraving that is a little out of the norm for the Oxygène style but once you see it in person it only adds to the classic refined look of such a beautiful throw.

It really is one of those yo-yos that will change the way you play and we could go on for days giving praise to the Hyperion, but this statement from Oxygène says it all:
“Elegant, top performing, and as close to perfection as we could dream for a yo-yo.”

The Hyperion comes stock with a Dif-e-yo Konkave Bearing, amazing packaging, and a cleaning cloth to keep your new favorite throw looking its best!



EDIT: 'Tis indeed expensive.

This is the most expensive yoyo I’ve ever seen XD

It looks pretty cool though.

500$ for a yoyo is outrageous. I looked at the price and nearly dropped a turd in my pants. It’s a cool throw, no doubt. But 500 bigs? No thanks. I think i’ll feed myself for 3 months.

Meh, you can go a month or 2 without food. ;D

Really tired of people coming in to threads to complain about pricing. It’s not like they’re suddenyl gonna drop the price a couple hundred dollars so they can afford it.

You bring a good point. BUT THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS!!!

A titanium yoyo in itself is expensive, H-shape yoyos like that are expensive. A titanium H-shaped yoyo like that isn’t going to be your regular priced titanium yoyo. I do believe that if they priced it that high, then they believe it plays to that value.

Indeed. If it plays to that value that means it’s about four times as good as my Summit O.O

//\ Nothing is that good. The yoyo is way over-priced.

Not overpriced, simply, “priced”.

It’s fairly large and heavy by Ti standards, and obviously will have a stunning build quality since it’s made by Oxy.

The YYF Ricochet was an undersized, simplistic design that was mass-machined in china… and it still cost $200. It makes sense then, that a small-run, locally machined, mid-sized, complicated shaped Ti throw is going to cost as much as this does.

I’m not saying it’ll play 4x as good as a Summit. It’s just that Ti throws are expensive, and this is one of the best examples of one out there, so it’s bound to be costly.

What makes a H-Shaped yoyo so expensive?

Also I’d venture to say that AT LEAST 350$ of that 500$ is mark up, it probably doesn’t even cost 50$ to make, considering Titanium is only about 9$ a pound. a pound will probably get you 3 yoyos.


^ thats where I got my price from. Don’t know how accurate it is. but figured it would be a useful example.

They must expect it to play like world peace if they think 500$ is cool.

What is wrong with the people on this forum. People blasting onedrop for their price on the valor and getting angry at clyw over the yeti price. Why can’t people just be happy to see a variety of yoyos on the market that cater to everyone. If I had $500 and wanted a unique titanium yoyo I’d pick this up. I’d love to own this yoyo but don’t have the $500 to spend but you don’t see me in here saying the price needs to be justified. It’s priced based on the manufacturer and if that’s what they want for it then it’s not going to change. I really wish these pointless posts weren’t allowed because I see this way too often.


Machining cost of a yoyo as such is going to be higher than usual.
Titanium machining is difficult and expensive
Machining complex angles and inward shapes is difficult and expensive
Anodizing specific areas is expensive
complex engraving is expensive
getting the yoyo from its country of origin, through customs, into the US is expensive.
Being produced by a somewhat smaller company?

I’m failing to see the issue as to why the price is somehow unreasonable.

My problem is that you don’t see any other companies trying to justify their pricing

Why are pants $50 even though I can get a pair for $20. Where’d the $30 come from? I demand the manufacturer give me a breakdown of how they got to this price immediately or else. Don’t worry I never planned to buy the $50 pair I just have to know :stuck_out_tongue:

I know I am arguing about prices here, but this statement is very well said.

EDIT: I mean, it’s not like anything we’re saying is going to change anything.
