Disc Frame - Expand
Main article: Disc Frame - Expand
Expand is a round, wide Disc Frame with four smooth blades, with six gaps in total. This design, like the Maximum Garuda and Air Knight Energy Layers, is intended to produce Upper Force. In theory this Upper Force will help "lift" the Beyblade, lowering friction between the Performance Tip and the stadium floor to improve Stamina. In practice however, the blades instead create air resistance when spinning and slow the Beyblade down. The round design of Expand creates high Stamina and Life-After-Death (LAD), as its wide shape prevents the Energy Layer from touching the stadium floor when the Beyblade is tilting. Its LAD capabilities are comparable to those of other popular Disc Frames such as Cross, Glaive and Proof.
Performance Tip - Xtreme'
Main article: Performance Tip - Xtreme'
Xtreme', like its predecessor Xtreme, features a flat rubber tip with a circular depression in the center, akin to Metal Fight Beyblade's Rubber Flat, that sits at the standard height. Unlike its predecessor, Xtreme' features a much thicker spring in its locking mechanism, increasing Xtreme''s Burst Resistance and solves the weakness featured in its predecessor.
Due to surface area to friction ratio, Xtreme' will create a highly aggressive, and if launched with a Banking Shoot, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, because it uses softer rubber than its predecessor, Xtreme' is faster than Xtreme and is as fast as or slower than Jolt or a worn Variable. Xtreme''s high speed allows for strong attacks and its high friction creates less chances of losing the Banking Pattern in battle making it the best choice for Attack Combinations at the time of writing.
However, Xtreme' has two major weaknesses. Firstly, the high friction of the rubber means that Xtreme' has incredibly low Stamina, furthermore, the light weight of early Burst System Combinations compared to previous Systems means that there is less inertia, exacerbating the Stamina issue further. Secondly, Xtreme' will wear down with use, decreasing its aggression with little to no improvement to the tip's Stamina, meaning that multiple copies must be purchased in order to replace worn ones. Furthermore, Xtreme''s softer rubber wears down more quickly than Xtreme's.
Like other Dash Performance Tips, Xtreme' features a stronger spring lock, increasing the Performance Tip's Burst Resistance.
