The Juggle Dream Cyclone Quartz 2 is the second generation model of the popular medium sized, triple bearing, rubber diabolo. The Cyclone diabolo uses a wide axle fitted with a one way bearing, making finger grinds and long complicated string tricks much easier to complete due to its prolonged spin time.
The Quartz 2 boasts cups made from higher quality moulds and with a fraction more weight around the rims to help the diabolo maintain its speed. The cups also have a smoother finish than the first generation. The second generation models also have faster bearings, stronger axles and new metal side washers.
A flashier brother to the original Cyclone, this LED version of the 'Quartz' boasts a firmer cup that allows even faster, longer spin times. The LED kits included make the diabolo look wicked at night. They do however, make the diabolo a little heavier, at 270g.
A slight downside we’ve found is that as the light kits tighten by hand it’s almost impossible to tighten them up completely, leaving a slight ‘play’ in the diabolo. However we didn’t find this made any difference to the overall performance. (As a word of caution please check the kits are securely on before every time you use one of these bad boys – save them flying off and the diabolo coming apart – losing all the little important bits in the back garden…in the dark).
As you can only spin the diabolo in one direction some people find a one way bearing easier to learn with. It is also much easier to get the diabolo spinning really fast as you can wrap the string a couple of times round the axle without fear of tangles.
There are, however, a few downsides; 1. Unlike conventional fixed axle diabolos the axle will need replacing once the bearings wear out.2. Elevator tricks (magic string climb) are impossible.
The triple bearings on the Cyclone are smooth and quiet. The Cyclone LED is great value choice for those who want a medium sized, one way clutch LED diabolo.
The light kits come with a full set of x 6 LR44 cell batteries included.
Please note, this is for the diabolo only, sticks are not included. You may want one of our diabolo sets or just our selection of diabolo handsticks.
