The Roadster was a wooden yo-yo produced by Playmaxx. It was designed by computer to have similar playing characteristics to the ProYo and to be a good looper. The oversized 2.5" diameter was originally a manufacturing mistake, but it was kept that way, and it had slightly concave sides for more rim weight distribution. Compared to most other wooden yo-yos of the time, especially What's Next's BC line, it is a one-piece model like with the olden yo-yos such as the legendary Duncan O-Boy.

Most were sold with laser-carved graphics on unfinished wood, but a very small number were stained and finished at the factory. Some Roadsters were made with the Flores name on them, which Playmaxx had acquired the rights to use.  

The Roadster was discontinued when Duncan bought out Playmaxx in 2001.
