The Retrakt R-Type is our nod to automobiles, especially the racing themes found in automotive manufacturing and paint style. We began this series in 2017 by adding rings to the lower barrel of the Retrakt and removing the knurling from the upper, adding grip texture to the lower and streamlining the pen. Then we find cool color combinations from automobiles past and present to draw inspiration from when we send the pens out for anodizing.
The final R-Type release of our latest production batch pays homage to a newer racing livery, the Flying Lizard Motorsports theme of red and silver. Mainly used on Porsche and Audi automobiles, the shiny silver and bright red liveries on these cars just drip with awesome goodness. Though they are a newer motorsports team, the color combination truly stands out. They aren’t a Formula One motorsports team, but we’re releasing this pen on the 70th Anniversary of the first Formula One race, which seems fitting. Ships with a custom Karas Pen Co WritingSports sticker with a dripping paint theme that our designer modeled after their logo.The pen comes equipped with a black Pilot G-2 refill. This release is limited to 75 pens.
