Description

The Umbra is a really wide and light-weight monometal yoyo, our 2nd release. This design owes a lot to the earlier “cubic” and ultra wide yoyos that paved the way – including the CLASHcube, Superwide, Atlas, Qubit, and 543. These yoyos proved that wide can be good, but much like regular sized yoyos, there’s always something new to find.

I started working on this design in 2018 just after designing the Diffraction v1. There’s an allure to certain numbers and patterns that draw me in, and the concept of a cubic yoyo (whose diameter and width were the same) was something that became a small obsession in the following months. After the Diffraction v2 was released, I met and then sponsored Jack Hudspath, who gave valuable feedback on the design. The prototypes were an absolute joy – light and bouncy, quick, but just enough stability to feel reliable. We came up with two colorways together, a pink/purple fade to match the Diffraction 2 colorway, and a signature blue/bluegrey fade for Jack. We simplified the hub design, and I sent it to production.
