The Fulvia R is one of the two versions of the Fulvia. Compared to the BTM-R, it's a whole different beast. It has a slightly thicker body section and focused on higher RPMs than brute rim weighting, making it more forgivable but still maintaining competition-focused performance.

It also has a 10-ball grooved C-bearing with the new LuftPAD response system, which is to be included in all future releases. The first edition is limited to 30 pieces with a polished finish and a corresponding certificate.




Fulvia BTM-R

Manufacturer Luftverk Titanium Supply Co.
Release date May 31st, 2016
Shape H-Shape
Color Polished
Weight 63.3 grams
Dimensions Diameter: 56mm
Width: 43mm
Material Titanium with stainless steel weight rings
Bearing size Size C Grooved 10 Ball
Response system Luftverk LuftPADs (Large Slim)
The Fulvia BTM-R is the second of the Fulvia yo-yos released. While both models are made of grade 5 titanium alloy, the BTM-R takes it a step further; Bi-metallic composition. The yo-yo has titanium body halves with stainless steel 316 alloy weight rings. Each weight ring weighs in at 20.06 grams. With that much mass on the rings, they would have to be kept dead concentric, or else there would be vibration problems.

The weight of the rings, combined with that of the wafer-thin hubs, allows for the BTM-R to be an extremely stable throw aimed at high-speed playing styles.

Because of the immense challenges behind the manufacturing of this yo-yo, only 20 polished units were made, each of them selling for a very expensive $510 USD. Each one also comes with a numbered certificate, which includes information regarding inspections passed. They also include a custom USB drive loaded with exclusive content showcasing the time and effort put into each yo-yo.
