What is a BaliYo?
Constructed from three pieces of close-tolerance polymer, the center body is a pressurized ball point pen pivoting between to two parallel arms. The positioning dynamics of the pivots allow you to swing and rotate the pen, changing its speed and force of gravity while flipping and twirling. Refined symmetry with even weight ratio (end-to-end and side-to-side) balances the pen through motion and force. With practice you can learn sophisticated moves, two-handed tricks, quick-flips, spins, aerials and how to manipulate combinations of these.
