New Sundia Evo5 G2
« on: March 29, 2016, 10:29:52 pm »
Here is the new Sundia Evo5 G2 diabolo with frosted translucent cups and solid stability ring.
This time the axle set is switchable between 5 Bearing and Fixed axle  :-D
The 5 Bearing axle sets will be available to buy separately (they also fit straight onto the Evo G1 & G2 cups so you can convert your old Evo into a 5 bearing)

I also have some new narrow fixed axle sets for both the Evo range and for the Shining / Icy / Nimble / Fly etc

All will be available at BJC for those attending and then will be up online for general sale from 5th April (when I get back from Scotland)
Cheers

I have to make sure before I get too excited, does that mean that if I felt bored of using bearings during my session I could just flick a switch and have a fixed axle diabolo? Because if so...

Ah no - unfortunately you have to spend about a minute to swap the cups onto a fixed axle set - sorry if my sentence was misleading  :embarassed:

Haha no problem, I probably read too much into it, although I am waiting in anticipation for sundia to release that functionality some time in the [hoefully near] future  ;)

So, if I properly understand:
Whenever I read Evo5 I should read that it is a 5 bearings diabolo. If on top of that I read that it is G2, then I know it allows switching to a fixed axle, by fast exchanging the cups thanks to Sundia's cup system.

Now, remembering what I learned from this post: http://diabolo.ca/forum/index.php?topic=12528.msg117562#msg117562
The Sundia Evo, and the Sundia Evo5, seem to be following the same path, are Evo G3 (Evo G2 does not have transparent cups) and Evo5 G2 similar as I have understood? Do they differ at all when Evo5 G2 is set to fixed axle?

Do you know if that "radical" cup shape that we saw in Evo5 G1 (http://radfactor.net/?pid=87825982) is forgotten forever or it may came back?

I extrapolate a lot to make my conclusions, so I expect they are quite wrong. Let me know which things I wrote are bollocks :)

Sorry for the slow reply...

@wis - yes the naming is a little confusing ... Let me explain...
The G3 cups (fixed axle) and the G2 bearing cups are the same cup...
Ryo in Japan lists them as G3 fixed or  g2 5 bearing
   
For clarity I think I will call both G2c (clear)

It's the same mould and shape as the solid colour G2 cup - but it uses the shinning material
I know I said they would be available by now, but I identified a problem where some could potentially fail - so we changed it for a new stronger design - I am currently waiting for the new stronger part to arrive before I put them on sale...  Obviously anyone who bought one from me already will get free replacement parts

The original evo5 with the clear ring and "radical" shaped cup will still be available - they plan to continue the manufacture of those

And I will soon offer both the new g2c cups and the normal solid colour g2 cups as a five bearing or fixed axle
