KUI

Introducing KUI. A yo-yo designed to be THE choice for your pocket when the sun sets.
It is the only yo-yo in its class. A Precision metal body paired with bright LED lights encased under a polycarbonate cap that peaks just so slightly out past the body to allow the player to see just as well as anyone watching, and yes, they will be watching. Its stunning. To further encourage night play and the creation of social media content we all love, the Kui comes packaged with a BLACKLIGHT LED light that can be powered by a basic powerbank. Plug it in and your string GLOWS. set up your shot and film amazing night time videos to share with all your friends. They will want a Kui too.



Kui is the creation of a partnership between Yoyofactory.cn and Yicheng Luo. Yicheng Luo is undoubtably the most famous professional yoyo player in China. In 2008 he hopped on a plane by himself, flew to the USA and walked on stage as a previously unknown player to take 4th place at the World Yo-Yo Contest. Since then he has never stopped contributing Currently Xichang, Sichuan Province, he teaches yo-yo class, and designs Yo-Yos.

Evan Nagao is the BATTLE FOR CHICAGO CHAMPION

AKA, 2x USA NATIONAL CHAMPION

Evan Nagao of Honolulu, Hawaii is the USA Yo-Yo Champion having won the title at the National Yo-Yo Contest in Chicago on July 1st. This win yields a seeded spot for him to represent the USA at the World Yo-Yo Contest in Shanghai in August. Nagao first gained notoriety for his talent at the young age of 4 appearing on the Jay Leno show as a yo-yo prodigy. Video of his unbelievable National’s performance using his signature YoYoFactory “Edge” yo-yo has become the most popular post on Reddit and gained over 200,000 YouTube views in just 24 hours. Evan credits his victory to many hours of practice as well as meditation and visualization. Along side him on the winner’s podium were two of his YoYoFactory Contest Team mates, 3x USA Champion Gentry Stein placing 2nd and Nate “The Great” Dailey placing 3rd, both of California. 

 

Check out what fans think of Evans win on REDDIT !

Hunter graduates SHUTTER CREW and accepts a spot on YoYoFactory Team!

 Hunter Feuerstein graduated SHUTTER CREW and was immediately presented with the opportunity to join the YoYofactory Contest Team. Hunter is the first Graduate to be offered a spot on the Team and we proud to announce he accepted!

Hunter has been a prolific traveller this season making it out to PNWR, NWR and just this weekend he put down his best freestyle to date at MWR taking 2nd place amongst a talented field. If he were a horse we would say he is just coming into form for the big race, the race being USA nationals. We would also say he is quite small for a horse.

Congrats on the MWR result and heres to a bright future on the team!

TEAM HORIZON weekend double!

First off, Marcus Osborne became the UK National YoYo champion is a rather upper crust event in the UK. The porta-potties and skateboard ramps of previous UK Nationals were a memory as everyone battled it out in relative comfort ;)

On the other side of the world, Polo (Garbkamol Limangkul) won his first Thailand National Championship!

Congratulations guys!
