Description

Since the release of the Evora, Luftverk had undergone the development process of the Octavia. Like the Evora, it is made of Grade 5 titanium alloy, but this time it used a Step Round body profile. It also comes included with a very high-end NSK Micro Platinum DS bearing for superior performance, along with adhesiveless, Hungarian-made Honey String Pads in the 19mm Large Slim size. As with the Evora, the AMS2488 Type II finished version features a full-ceramic bearing for unprecedented sleeping performance.

The Octavia was first teased on Luftverk's Facebook page, in the form of a photo of the prototype catching rain in Madrid, Spain. It had then made an appearance in a promotional video of the Czech National Yo-Yo Contest. The yo-yo was then released in the United States on December 6th, 2015, and in Europe a day later. It had sold out within a week of its release, and was met with critical acclaim.

One final run of 14 splash-anodized Octavias were released on the official Luftverk website on October 19th, 2016. It not only acts as a send-off to the Octavia model, but this also marks the first time that a titanium yo-yo was finished with a splash anodization.
