Seven Summits

The original Summit came from the meeting of the minds and hearts of CLYW and One Drop Yo-Yos. As documented in the video, it was a short but intense beginning to one of the most popular models released by either company. Nearly two years later they are still just as loved and we continue to produce them.

To continue this journey we knew we wanted to make the Summit in 7075 alloy. Since this is the Summit, we knew it had to be different and took inspiration based on that 7075 is part of "Seven Series Aluminum". It became obvious: we need to do the Seven Summits.

The Seven Summits are the tallest mountains on each of the 7 continents. Climbing to the summit of all seven (let alone even one) is an incredible human feat known as the "Seven Summits".

We are going to create the Seven Summits of yo-yo by offering seven different runs of 7075 Summits - each run limited to 50 yo-yos and named after each of the actual seven mountains. Each run will be released separately over a period of months starting with Kilimanjaro in Africa.

And here is another cool part. 7075 weighs more (is more dense) than the usual 6061 so you would expect the Seven Summits to weigh more. However, we re-designed the weight distribution so the resulting total weight of the yo-yo is lighter! Whoa. Heavier metal, lighter yo-yo, but still looks the same (and has the same width and diameter).

You will know it's a Seven Summit because it will have a mountain name engraved on it. But more than that you will know because it plays different from the original while still maintaining the same essence.
