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 cushioning material, the new POWER CUSHION＋ boasts 28% more shock absorption and 62% more repulsion.
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.

Toe Assist Shape
A toe-centric design that cuts down on the pressure in the big toe, as well as offering improved support at the mid-foot and heel for a stable fit. Power loss is reduced, allowing for swift footwork.
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.
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.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
Tongue connected with shoe opening reduces overlapping layers for a more snug fit.
ToughBrid Light retains the exact performance as ToughBrid yet is 11%* lighter, generating a significant reduction in leg and knee stress.
*Tested by YONEX
Power Graphite Sheet
A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
BOA Fit System
In place of shoelaces, shoes feature wire laces that can be adjusted with a dial. Without the hassle of tying and untying shoelaces, the shoes can be fit precisely to your feet. When loosening the shoes, pull up the dial, pull on the Easy Tab, and the shoe opens up in an instant.
