Wicked Carbon – Just Launched!

Do you spend the final few months subtly scrutinizing the latest tastes, fads and fashions of your loved one in an attempt to pinpoint that perfect gift? Fret no more! Wicked has come to the rescue – just in time for Christmas.

Wicked is proud to unveil a premium range of proudly British made flying toys featuring the world’s most expensive production boomerang and flying disc under its new brand, Wicked Carbon.

Crafted from high grade carbon fibre and made right here in the UK, the Wicked Carbon Booma and Wicked Sky Rider Carbon are a playful fusion of style and substance. The result of over two years of development, both items are skilfully hand laid to achieve a beautiful silky black and silver finish.

Forming part of a limited collection of just 300 pieces to be sold worldwide, each item will be personally signed and numbered by owner and developer, David Strang, and accompanied by an instructional video nestled into bespoke packaging.

Both Wicked Carbon Booma and Wicked Sky Rider Carbon are a triumph of British craftsmanship and a delight to own either as a presentation piece or as a high performing flying toy for the discerning adult- come- child in us all.

Wicked welcomes Mark Holland

From September 2014, we are delighted to welcome National Sales Manager, Mark Holland, to the team.

Mark will handle all of Wicked’s national accounts, taking over from Managing Director David Strang who will now focus on the business’s fast growing global accounts as well as new product development.

“The timing could not have been better,” David noted, “it has certainly been a busy time for us. The company has experienced substantial growth in the past 12 months, increasing the product range by a third and expanding into 15 major international markets.”

“I am thrilled to join the business at this crucial time,” comments Mark, “I was struck by the team’s ambition, enthusiasm and their forward thinking approach. Exciting times lie ahead and I cannot wait to get started.”

Mark has over 20 years of sales experience in both B2B and B2C sectors, 10 of which have been within the toys, gift and game industry.

This year, Wicked marked its 10 year anniversary of manufacturing boomerangs here in the UK by releasing the world’s most expensive production boomerang and flying disc under a new, premium brand: Wicked Carbon.

With a host of new and exciting products on the horizon for 2015 – Wicked is definitely staying true to its motto: “There’s no rest for the Wicked!”

Dragons’ Den

Wicked UKick featured on BBC’s Dragons’ Den on Sunday 10th August (and again on Monday 11th!).  Despite not receiving an investment, UKick Developers David and Phil made a great impression with the Dragons, with Kelly Hoppen remarking “I think it’s got legs, this thing!” We’ll take that as a compliment, Kelly.
