The Aries Face Bolt depicts "Aries", the first astrological sign in the Zodiac. Aries is one of the 88 constellations in space, and is depicted in the design as a ram skull, with the word "ARIes" below it. Some Hasbro releases, such as Torch Aries 125D, omit the word and enlarge the ram skull.

Wheel - Aries

The Aries Wheel design features three ram heads, with two horn protrusions each (six horns in total). The six horns are intended to "bounce" attacks off. Aries has slight Upper Attack, but has horrible Defense properties due to the wide gaps in the Wheel, and bad Stamina due to frequent recoil. In addition, Aries is quite light, especially compared to other Wheels. Aries has two molds, with the second mold being lighter in weight. The revised second mold has the gaps between the head and horns filled in, with the underside of the horns being hollowed out.

Spin Track - 145

145, along with its variants (Claw 145 (C145), Down Force 145 (DF145), etc.), was once the highest Spin Track available, until the 230 Spin Track was released with Flame Byxis 230WD. 145 can be used in Stamina Type combinations to great effect due to its tall height, which allows for more wobbling as the Beyblade loses its spin velocity. However, gimmick-paired Spin Tracks such as Boost Disk 145 (BD145) have immensely outclassed their original basic variant, as have several taller gimmick Spin Tracks, especially against heavy, mid-height Attack customisations. Even in stamina battles, 145 does not offer enough balance: Spin Tracks such as Armor Defense 145 (AD145) and Wide Defense 145 (WD145) provide a good center of gravity, and aid with a slight downforce to maintain stability.

Performance Tip - Defense

Defense (D), as the name implies, was the first Defense Type Performance Tip released in the Metal Saga series. Defense is similar to Spike, but is wider. Compared to the Stamina Type Spike, Defense actually has superior Stamina capabilities, with less recoil and more recovery. However, the added friction from the wider tip causes the Beyblade to lose Stamina during recovery.
