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.
POWER CUSHION +
A raw egg can be dropped from 12 meters above the POWER CUSHION+ mat, rebounding to a height of 6 meters without breaking. **Tested by YONEX** POWER CUSHION™ is a trademark of Yonex Co., Ltd. *Research by the Japan Vehicle Inspection Association & Boken Quality Evaluation (based on JIS standards) in comparison to conventional cushioning material (EVA).
** Double Raschel Mesh
Double Raschel Mesh is an ultra fine mesh that is extremely lightweight and durable. It provides eight times more air-exchange for releasing moisture than ordinary mesh fabric.
** Power Graphite Sheet
A graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the sole to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
** Power Graphite Lite
A super-light graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the foot to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
** Lateral Shell
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.
** Synchro-Fit Insole
YONEX new Synchro-Fit Insole construction allows a closer fit between shoe and foot, keeping power loss to an absolute minimum to achieve smoother movement and quicker footwork.Fig1. Compared to conventional footwear, the mid to heel area on the insole is lifted to provide a closer-fit between shoe and foot.Fig2. By holding the heel more firmly against the insole, the gap between shoe and foot is reduced, improving comfort and ensuring the foot does not slip forwards inside the shoe.
** Toe Assist Shape
A toe-centric design that cuts down on 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.
** Round Sole
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.
** RADIAL BLADE SOLE
Designed for confidence in directional change. A new sole pattern increasing traction in vertical, horizontal and diagonal movements
