From Zero Gravity's Instagram account:
"We love exploring new concepts to incorporate in our throws whilst maintaining the classic yoyo fundamentals. For this project, we wanted to bring out the shape and playability of a classic yoyo. A yo-yo that could be easily tossed in your pocket but at the same time, a yoyo that is capable of being played in different ways.

The design of this yo-yo required considerable customization and multiple rounds of prototyping to get the results we were looking for. Due to its specialized dimensions and structure, we needed to get its weight distribution and internal wall design just right. Having a narrow width and moving weight towards the outer diameter of the yoyo required meticulous calculation as well as designing and positioning the caps just right.

El MiJo has custom-made silicone pads with big side walls to ensure an effective response system. The dimensions of the response pad system also required several trials and testings before choosing the one that performed the best. This yo-yo can hold different D bearing sizes to play either unresponsive or responsive, and at the same time, el Mijo can be played as a 'fixie' by using our uniquely engineered accessory. El MiJo comes with two axles: an 8mm axle and a 10mm axle. Although the 8 mm axle can be used with all the configurations, we included a 10 mm axle to use it with the wider bearing in order to ensure a good connection between the two discs.

For extra fun, we designed el MiJo with a finger spin nub that is hard to resist experimenting with! This finger nub has become a challenge amongst the ZGRT team to see who can hook into it the way you would with a cup shaped wider yo-yo. Along the way, we have found very creative ways to lock into it, and when you do, El MiJo spins beautifully!"
