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.

Fusion Wheel - Rock

Main article: Fusion Wheel - Rock
Rock has six large protrusions with small, shallow gaps between each one. It also overhangs the Spin Track much like the original Leone Metal Wheel, although to a smaller extent. Rock is outclassed by later releases, with its weight being unable to compete with most Fusion Wheels, and its rounded shape being too passive to be any real threat in Attack combinations.

Spin Track - 145

Main article: 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 - Wide Defense

Main article: Performance Tip - Wide Defense
Wide Defense (WD), as its name implies, is the widest (along with Wave Wide Defense (W2D) and Eternal Wide Defense (EWD)) of the "Defense" series of Performance Tips (D, SD, WD, W2D, EWD and PD). The wide surface area prevents the Beyblade from being knocked over easily. In addition, Wide Defense is able to wobble at a larger angle and for a longer period of time than Defense. However, low spin rate is created towards the end of a battle because in the process of wobbling at such a large angle, more friction is made with the stadium floor, thus decreasing its stamina. Although its name suggests defensive characteristics, Wide Defense does not possess any inherent defensive qualities. Wide Defense finds most use in providing increased stamina in combos.
