Beat (ビート, Bīto) is a Fusion Wheel released by Takara Tomy as part of the 4D System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the BB-109 Random Booster Vol. 7 Beat Lynx on April 23rd, 2011.

Description

Beat is a 4D Metal Wheel that consists of a PC Frame and Core.

PC Frame

The PC Frame of this 4D Metal Wheel is the piece that acts as the primary mechanism behind its Mode Change. There are triangular designs on each side of the PC Frame resembling cat ears; the weight is mainly focused on these opposite ends of the Frame.

Core

The Core of Beat could be seen as a representation of the snout of a Lynx, along with the Clear Wheel which represents its ears. There are diamond-shaped designs lining the inside of the Core that lead towards the two main protruding contact points. These protrusions produce ferocious Smash Attack, but unfortunately also create Recoil. The overarching design is similar to both Vulcan and Quetzalcoatl.

Like all 4D Metal Wheels, Beat features a mode changing gimmick. It works by rotating the PC Frame while the Beyblade is disassembled. The two Modes are:

  • Attack Mode :

In this mode, the PC Frame is aligned with the two long "wings" of the Core, exposing the two protruding contact points on each side.

  • Defense Mode:

In this mode, the PC Frame is rotated 90° so that the two heavier ends cover the two protruding contact points, creating a circular wall of sorts around the perimeter of Beat.


Attack Mode is the only competitively useful mode of the two. In Defense Mode, the PC Frame unfortunately leaves a small portion of the protruding contact points exposed. And even if they were covered completely, much heavier Wheels such as Basalt would still outclass it.

In Attack Mode, Beat is arguably one of the best right-spin Attack Wheels. Its best uses are in mid- and low-height Attack customizations, with mid-height being the most preferred. As a two-sided Metal Wheel, it works best with two-sided Clear Wheels such as Lynx.
