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.
POWER CUSHIONTM+ is a ‘light and fatigue-reducing’ material. POWER CUSHIONTM+ has a 28%*1 increase in shock absorption and a 62%*2 increase in repulsion when compared to conventional cushioning material (EVA). A raw egg can be dropped from 12 meters above a POWER CUSHION™+ mat, rebounding to a height of 6 meters without breaking*3. POWER CUSHION™+ also provides 25%*3 better shock absorption, and a 12%*4 boost in repulsion.

One Piece Outsole
One piece outsole from toe to heel for more stability.
The YONEX Round Sole ™ is designed to provide all-around support for quick and smooth footwork. The Round Sole ensures smooth movements and the transfer of maximum energy.
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.
