Team C3 Leo Chan Matsumoto signature model - Vanitas
Our Team C3 Hong Kong member, Leo Chan Matsumoto is a Champion of the Hong Kong Yo-yo Selection Contest. He is Hong Kong's new generation player who is famous for his speedy and wide range movement of tricks. His favourite yoyos use are the KROWN st , Atomic Crash and Edolass in the contest.
In early 2020, C3 launched the Galaxydiver which is a wide profile bi metal yoyo. It quickly became a popular yoyo in C3 team and all players. Leo also loved to use the Galaxydiver, and he said it was a step closer to his dream yoyo. Hearing this, our design team worked hard with Leo in pursuit of his signature model.
We discussed with Leo serval of times, wanting to combine the advantages of KROWN st , Edolass and Galaxydiver to act as the blueprint of the new design. After going through a long period of testing and 4 prototype runs, we now have a final design.
A new evolution
Base on the V shape of KROWN st, wide profile from Galaxydiver and weight distribution of Edolass, we made a lot of fine tuning to the design. It is a new definition of contest level speed play yoyo.
Vanitas - Speed! Power! Accuracy!
63.3g weight to ensure the yoyo can move at high speed without heavy straining the hand. Vanitas can bring you up to a new level on speed tricks.
56.75mm diameter makes the outer stainless steel ring go further than the general yoyo. The unique design of Edolass stainless steel ring and the super thin body maximized the weight distribution for powerful spin.
50.29mm width which is a super wide design enhances its floaty power. It has a longer hang time in the air which makes sure player have enough time for tricks.
A truly signature model
「Vanitas is a symbolic work of art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure, and the certainty of death, often contrasting symbols of wealth and symbols of ephemerality and death. 」
Leo's major study is Art. From the name of yoyo, color choice and logo art are chosen by Leo himself. Vanitas logo is a skull with a flower which came from one of Leo's art drawing in school. Vanitas is truly Leo Chan Matsumoto's signature yoyo.
