The YONEX Power Cushion absorbs shock then reverses the impact energy for smooth transfer into the next movement.
Compared with urethane, the YONEX Power Cushion construction provides 3 times more shock absorbing power. When dropped from 7m above a Power Cushion sheet, an egg will bounce back 4m without damage.
By adding a special elastic resin to POWER CUSHION, while maintaining the conventional lightweight properties, high shock absorption is realized. Grooves designed in a lattice pattern, with optimum spacing and depth, achieve further resilience.
Compared with conventional POWER CUSHION, the new POWER CUSHION+ boasts 25% more shock absorption and 12% more repulsion.
ToughBrid Light retains the exact performance as ToughBrid yet is 11% lighter, generating a significant reduction in leg and knee stress.
Tough Guard III
Extremely durable wear-resistant synthetic leather.
The Lateral Shell located on the outside of the forefoot prevents sliding at the edge of the sole. It reduces power loss, increases footwork response and creates smooth, fluid and offensive foot movements.
YONEX Synchro-Fit Insole construction creates a secure contact between foot and shoe, reducing energy wastage through an improved fit.
Toe Assist Shape
High performance footwork places stress on the big toe. “Toe Assist Shape” provides special support at the big toe, as well as the midsole and heel, to prevent slipping during rapid changes of direction.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
The YONEX Round Sole is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and transfer of maximum energy.
