Ifritor I2 Infinity Zephyr is a Balance Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in western countries as a Single Pack.

Energy Layer - Ifritor I2

Main article: Energy Layer - Ifritor I2
Ifritor I2 is a triangular Energy Layer made for Attack, the perimeter of which features three triangles and three pointed blades creating the primary points of impact, one of the triangles making up the upper jaw and one of the blades of which makes up the lower jaw of the Layer's namesake, the supernatural creature of fire from Islamic Scripture.

The pointed shape and direction of the blades implies a high recoil design that excels in Burst Attack, while the downward slope of the blades allows for small amounts of Force Smash and Destabilization and the three triangles are pointed downward so they do not cover up the blades. Furthermore the Takara Tomy release of Inferno Ifrit features four teeth, the first of which is short in length and the last three are tall in length, allowing this Layer to withstand its own recoil. However, Inferno Ifrit's blades are in reality, compact which limits the recoil and the Layer suffers a history of breaks and no mold variations have been released to solve that problem. It is recommended to have multiple copies of this Layer and to be prepared to replace it.

Forge Disc - Infinity

Main article: Forge Disc - Infinity
Infinity features a round, thick, sharp edged and warped design meant to recreate the look of a Mobius Strip. Like Ring, almost all of Infinity's weight is focused on the perimeter creating a high Outward Weight Distribution and Flywheel Effect for Stamina Combinations and the round design allows for some Life After Death. However, like Ring, the high Outward Weight Distribution increases the risk of Bursts as the Disc and Performance Tip will resist changes in spin speed while the Layer is more likely to stop, leading to teeth skipping and Bursts.

Performance Tip - Zephyr

Main article: Performance Tip - Zephyr
Zephyr features a hollow plastic flat tip with a small diameter, akin to Hole Flat from Metal Fight Beyblade, and sits at the standard height. Compared to Accel, the diameter of Zephyr is slightly larger. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter "Z" for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Zephyr will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Zephyr is comparable to Accel, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Zephyr is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations.

However, Zephyr's plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Zephyr can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Zephyr is liable to self-Knock-Outs. Finally, due to Zephyr's hollow construction, the Driver is liable to denting in the case of Disk to Driver contact after a Burst.
