Introducing the new Elevate Shape!
In 2019, we released the CREAL 1.5 shape - a kendama that was competitive to the modern landscape. Since then, we have worked to produce multiple designs with the shape but felt that it was time for something new.
Elevate will release in November 2020, starting with Jon's signature nKo mod as an alternate to the CREAL 1.5 shape.
Taller, slimmer and with bigger cups, it is designed not as an upgrade of the CREAL 1.5 but rather as another option for players who like a taller and bigger ken.
It is 16.9cm in height (KWC approved) and paired with a 62mm tama, features our new "Crater" balance hole and "Chunk" stalls - bird, nightingale, ring and handle.
The "Crater" balance hole is a wider and deeper hole to compensate for the wider base cup. Our objective was to ensure that the lunar balance was not compromised while we improved our lighthouse balance.
