darn it, i was gonna design a yoyo just like this, as my companies first yoyo

It can’t be the same! do it!

it looks titanium!

Hi all!

We have the results of our French Nats! What an epic moment. Congrats to Anthony “Snake” DESTREMX (1st), Paul “LauP” Régnier (2nd) and Clément “Hatos” BERTAUX (3rd)!. You guys rule!!!

We have announced our politic of designing, here are the changes.

As promised, we have released our second proto : the Aware. Let us know what you think of it.

Finally, we will present you the story of the ZeuS. But, instead of a link towards our website, I prefer to let Xela explained it to you.

Stay tuned!

ZeuS is a concept that I have in mind for a long time.

The idea was to place the weight in 4 points, and to adjust those points according to the desired playability.
I called that afterward the ZS shape. Why?

Here is the sectional shot of the Zeus that emphasizes the ZS shape; we can clearly see the S shape on top. Imagine the other half, you’ll get the Z and you’ll see the ZS.

I annotated these 3 points, by considering the bearing system as the 4th point.
My idea was to move these points and to vary their diameter, in order to adjust the distribution of weight at best.After several questions and several designs, looking for the ideal repartition that will suit my style, ZeuS was born.

The proto is perfect for me, still extreme shape, extreme spin and what seems to be the most stable of our yoyos to this day . Contrary to what some people may think, this yoyo is not heavy, its 66 grams towards its volume, confers a sensation of lightness.

It is not said that the concept of the ZeuS will be the only one. The ZS collection?

Hi Friends.

X³ was a proud sponsor of the MYYB in Hungary and we would like to congratulate the new 1A champ., Vilmos Zoltan Kiss!

Also, here our third proto from five, the Resonance.

Wait… What’s this?

Stay tuned!

After Xela told the story of the ZeuS, it’s my turn to speak about the Aware.

The Aware was born for the first time just after Stampede. I had sharp forms in minds, contrary to my first design. Points, angles… When I showed this design to Xela, least that I can say is that he was not enthusiast. I have to say that I understood him, being myself not completely satisfied; but I knew that I was chasing something good.

A few months later, I took back the plans. I decided to run only a single idea, rather than having several irons in the fire! An empty hub, blank, a yoyo where the distribution of the masses would be made outside and not inside.

What here is thus what has succeeds in the Aware. An inverted work, in a way, because I have for habit to define at first the general shape, and to place then the masses according to the wished play. There, I drew at first this empty hub, and placed my masses all around, obtaining something unconventional, but interesting. Xela agreed. The Aware was born.

As for the name, it is about a private joke which a few Inhabitants of Nantes will understand…


Once again, lots of news!

X³ was a proud sponsor of the Winter Freestyle Competition 2 (here are the vid’ and the results), of the Magyar Yo-Yo Bajnokság 2011 (here are the results). We also have the results of the Italian Nats.
