Roktavor R2 Boost Press, known as Rising Ragnaruk Boost Press (ライジングラグナルク・ブースト・プレス, Raijingu Ragunaruku Būsuto Puresu) in Japan, is a Defense Type Beyblade released as part of the Burst System as well as the Dual Layer System. It was released in Japan on July 16th, 2016 for 972円 as one of eight possible Beyblades in Random Booster Vol. 3 Yaeger Yggdrasil.G.Y.
Energy Layer - Roktavor R2
Main article: Energy Layer - Roktavor R2
Roktavor R2 is a Stamina Type Energy Layer that features an elliptical shape akin to its predecessor Roktavor. Like its predecessor, the Layer's wings are molded into the visage of a head on either side, matching the anime's rendition of the Layer's beast; a winged demon. The placement of these wings is where the majority of the Layer's weight is, creating a high Outward Weight Distribution and Flywheel Effect which bolsters Roktavor R2's Stamina. While this may imply high Stamina potential, these wings also make up the primary points of contact, creating a recoil heavy design that severely diminishes the Stamina benefits of its Outward Weight Distribution and Flywheel Effect. While the high recoil of the elliptical shape and the wings may imply high Attack potential, the Takara Tomy release of Rising Ragnaruk features weak teeth that are unable to withstand the aforementioned recoil, meaning that this Layer is prone to losses by Burst.
Forge Disc - Boost
Main article: Forge Disc - Boost
Boost is a circular Forge-Disc with six small downward sloping blades present around its perimeter. In theory, the blades are meant to produce Down Force in Right-Spin to increase the grip of the Beyblade on the stadium floor by pushing air downward and create Upper Force in Left-Spin which would decrease the friction between the Beyblade and the stadium floor by pushing air upwards. In reality however, due to the small size of the blades, the Down/Upper Force created is negligible and the said blades serve no other purposes other than drastically reducing the Life After Death of Boost. Furthermore, Boost has a light weight even for a non-Core Disc and a poor weight distribution making it a poor choice for Attack, Defense and Stamina Combinations.
Performance Tip - Press
Main article: Performance Tip - Press
Press features a ball-shaped tip, much like Defense, but differs by having four significantly wider tabs around its tip compared to Defense's. In theory, these tabs will force the Beyblade back into an upright position after being knocked off balance and act as brakes to prevent KOs by striking against the stadium floor at the cost of Stamina. While such an effect does occur, the wider tabs create greater Stamina drain than Defense's with little to no improvement on stability and KO resistance. The top portion of Press also has four wall protrusions with a spike in the center on the sides of the Performance Tip, but hold no real purpose other than a slight source of Stamina loss, since they can also scrape along the stadium floor and are too low to be struck by any Burst System Beyblade.
