Accel (アクセル, Akuseru) is a Performance Tip released by Takara Tomy as part of the Burst System. It debuted in Japan with the release of the B-01 DX Starter, Valkyrie Wing Accel, on July 18th, 2015. It later debuted in western countries with the release of Hasbro's Valtryek and Unicrest Dual Pack.


A Driver with a flat tip and mobility, it moves around the Beystadium in a circle at high speed and gives powerful attacks to the opponent.
— Official Description

Accel features a plastic flat tip with a small diameter and sits at the standard height. The center of the Driver also contains an embossed logo featuring a stylized letter A for easy differentiation from other Drivers. Due to the surface area, Accel will create an aggressive, and if launched at an angle, somewhat easily controllable movement pattern. In terms of speed, Accel is faster than Blow but is slower than Xtreme, capable of reaching and stalling on the Tornado Ridge. Due to the plastic construction, Accel is an excellent choice for both Mobile Stamina and Attack/Stamina Balance Combinations. Furthermore, the solid construction also ensures that Accel will not wear out like other Drivers such as Xtreme nor be damaged like Zephyr.

However, Accel's plastic construction is also a weakness as Attack Combinations using Accel can lose their Banking Pattern somewhat easily, especially if the Combinations are unbalanced. Furthermore, the low friction means that Accel is liable to Self-Knock-Outs.

Use in Attack Combinations

Accel can be used in the Attack Combination Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles/Winning Valkyrie 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor Accel. The heavy weight of 0/00/10/8/7 Bump/Turn/Meteor bolsters the Attack potential of Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles/Winning Valkyrie while the Layer's weight, strong teeth and gimmick compensates for the Burst risk. If one struggles to control rubber Drivers at the spin speeds needed to activate Cho-Z Valkyrie/Cho-Z Achilles' gimmick, then Accel can be used instead with the combination's high spin speeds compensating for the slower movement.


Takara Tomy's Accel was once one of the best Drivers for Mobile Stamina Combinations, but due to the introduction of left-spin Beyblades in the Burst System, Mobile Stamina Combinations are no longer useful for competitive play. Hasbro's Accel is rounded, creating speeds akin to Blow, struggling to reach the Tornado Ridge and settling into the center much more quickly.

As such, Accel is recommended for collection purposes only.
