The hard top and bottom layers absorb 30% more shock than our original Power Cushion and provide 5% more repulsion for enhanced transfer of energy. The soft middle layer quickly returns to its original shape after receiving a shock load, converting the shock energy into power for fast and light footwork.
ToughBrid Light retains the exact performance as ToughBrid yet is 11%* lighter, generating a significant reduction in leg and knee stress.
*Tested by YONEX
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.
Shaped Shoe Technology
The YONEX research and development team continuously assesses the impact of foot shape on fit and comfort in our badminton shoes. The new Quattro Fit System from YONEX addresses the four key areas.
Fit point 01: Smaller toes, Fit point 02: Arch
Designed to reduce the excess space at the front of the shoe that is created by the smaller toes. Shaped shoe technology improves grip and power transfer when accelerating or stopping.
Fit point 03: Mid-foot, Fit point 04: Heel
Re-shaped design at the heel and the mid-foot ensures the foot is held firmly for quick response and direct footwork.
Constructed precisely to follow the shape of the foot, YONEX insoles provide a tight yet comfortable fit on court.
In addition, the sides of the insole are raised and reinforced with a tough resin to improve stability.
Winding Channel supports sudden sideways movement for a faster response.
Extensive analysis of foot movement by YONEX scientists has resulted in an improved close fit and better cushioning for smoother and quicker footwork.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
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.
Three times stronger than ordinary synthetic leather and more resistant against heat for prolonged comfort and better performance.
