Pheonic Chromium Wheel & Thief Crystal Wheel

The Pheonic ChW is the first '3-blade/wing' metal wheel, well known for
high attack capabilities. The 3 Wings of the Pheonic is similar in attack
surface and decently sloped for upper attack options.

The Thief CrW is also a '3-bladed' part but have smaller jaggered edges within
each blade. This design enables the bey to have 'Repeatitive Attack' funtionalites.

The Magnetic Mass Saturation Graph shows that the Chromium Wheel although looking
very symetrical on the surface is actually pretty unbalanced in its weight
distrubution. Holding 1 major weight saturation point and light on the opposite
area, this ChW is very high in momentumnary rotations, probably highly increasing
attack movements.

The Pheonic Chomium Wheel weighs at 29.85g

And a Synchrom Pheonic Chromium Wheel weighs at 59.77g

Chrome Up and Crystal Up views

As always, only the ChW can 'Synchrom' with itself, the CrW can't combine in design.

Elevator 230 Track & Gear Circle Flat Bottom

The Exclusive part that comes with the ZGRBV1 E230 and GCF at the first look,
is just a Up and Down elevation movement 230 Track and a Circle Flat with a 'Gear'
design circumference. Yes? But it is how this two parts work together that deliver
a never before seen capability in Bey history.

Tilt Recovery

Most attention will go to the Elevating movement of the Disk section but in actual fact
the Disk does not really move up and down freely as expected. Review the function in a
Side View perspective for easier understanding.

When the Bey is in the ZeroG stadium and encounters a normal gradient slope, the 2 point
contact system of the Gear Circle Flat takes place. Like the CF Bottom, this helps the Bey
to increase in speed without compromising tilting angle of the Bey in whole.

But when a Sudden heavier tilt occur, the E230 Disk will come into action, taking over the
Flat Section and guide the Bey in a level angle to keep the bey in perpendicular to the stadium surface. This also keeps the ChW and CrW parts away from direct contact with the Stadium Surface which will greatly depletes Stamina.

When the Tilt recovers the E230 Disk will stay in the lifted level to keep the overall weight
balanced so that the Bey will not be thrown off the surface due to the sudden tilt.
This Tilt Recovery System is really on of its kind and works very well with CF or GCF Bottoms

Overall the Thief Pheonic is a very unique ZeroG addition. With its special E230 Performance Track and Gear Circle Flat combination that performs greatly in the ZeroG battle, makes it even all worth while to collect. A must have for all Bladers and Collectors.


The 'Hidden' True Rare Thief Pheonic E230GCF

For those whom gotten themselves the whole set of ZGRVB1 or at least all the Rares would have noticed that the other three 'Rares' consist of a Red 'Thief CrW', 'E230' and 'GCF'. And  Yes, since the Thief Pheonic IS a Fire Elemental Bey, the True Crimson version of the Thief Pheonic needs ALL the 4 Rares to obtain. Nice.

E145 and BD230

Yes, since the BD145 Disk is similar to E230 Suppport Disk, it IS interexchangable, but do not that the Boost Disk does not slide up and down on the E230 Track rail as freely as it should as the design has a few millimeters off.


  1. Whoa. You bought the entire set? Is this off eBay, by any chance? Taka Ohno?

    1. Hi Zach,
