The lightness for providing quicker footwork
SHBF1NLTD, SHBF1NMX: 275g/26.0cm
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.
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.
The 3D stability channel molded graphite sheet provides 15% more strength against twisting.
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.
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.
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.
Three times stronger than ordinary synthetic leather and more resistant against heat for prolonged comfort and better performance.
