We are beyond thrilled to introduce the Metal Yeti.
The Yeti has been our most challenging project ever. Two plastic iterations came and went with varying degrees of success, rife with challenges, and both ended their lifespans early due to production problems that we just couldn’t quite solve. But the shape and the feel were just too. damn. good and we couldn’t give up on it, so we went back to what we do best…precision metal.
The Metal Yeti is a beautiful halfway point between nostalgia and the new new, with a play style that really makes us feel like it’s an instant classic. (Fun fact, the hub stickers are left over from the very first Yeti production run!) Something about this return top is just “perfect Caribou” and none of us can put our prototypes down. We’re so excited for everyone to try these that we even made a lot more than usual to get the price down so that we could make them even more affordable.
The Metal Yeti will be available through all CLYW retailers in January 2019, but we’ve made arrangements for a limited pre-release just in time for the holidays.
A small quantity of the Metal Yeti will be available through YoYoExpert , Rewind , and Slusny on Friday, December 14th at 10 pm EST. (In local times, that means Dec. 14 at 10 pm EST at YoYoExpert, Dec. 15 at 4 am at Slusny, and Dec. 15 at noon at Rewind.) These quantities are incredibly limited, but don’t worry if you miss out…more will be coming in January!
