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.
The upper part of the shoe is constructed out of only 5 sections, rather than the conventional 7 parts. This minimizes the number of overlapped areas and the requirement for heavy stitching.
In the area labelled (2), stitching has been replaced by a hot glue which binds the sections together to reduce overall shoe weight.
Hyper msLite is a further 10% lighter than the original high-performance midsole and provides greater durability and comfort.
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.
A super-light graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the foot to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
YONEX Synchro-Fit Insole construction creates a secure contact between foot and shoe, reducing energy wastage through an improved fit.
Fig 1. Compared with conventional badminton shoes, the mid to heel section on the insole is elevated to provide an improved fit between foot and shoe.
Fig 2. By holding the heel firmly against the insole, the gap between foot and shoe is reduced, improving comfort and performance, ensuring the foot has maximum grip inside the shoe.
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.
Scientifically contoured, the Ergoshape provides more comfort and stability in the forefoot and toe area of the shoe.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
Three times stronger than ordinary synthetic leather and more resistant against heat for prolonged comfort and better performance.
