Releasing in late September 2017, Yonex’s new POWER CUSHION 65 Z, which is equipped with the new POWER CUSHION® Plus construction, enables a new level of fast and light footwork.

As a shoe that supports heavy footwork, the POWER CUSHION 65 series has been a long-time favorite of top players around the globe. Popular with Viktor Axelsen (Denmark) and other top badminton players, and in response to the recent trend in badminton play speed increasing, the POWER CUSHION® has been enhanced by the addition of a special elastic resin, creating the POWER CUSHION® Plus, debuting in the POWER CUSHION 65 Z.

Shock absorption increased 25% while maintaining light weight*
Repulsion increased 12%*
*Compared with conventional POWER CUSHION®

◆POWER CUSHION®
A lightweight, impact absorbing material developed independently by Yonex which quickly returns to its original shape after receiving a shock load, converting the shock energy into power for fast and light footwork.

◆POWER CUSHION® Plus
By adding a special elastic resin to the POWER CUSHION®, while maintaining conventional lightweight properties, high shock absorption is realized. Grooves designed in a lattice pattern, with optimum spacing and depth, achieve further resilience.

◆Lateral Shell
Mounted on the outside of the forefoot - heel section. Power loss is reduced with side and diagonal steps.

◆Seamless Upper
By creating the upper from one-piece of artificial leather from the forefoot part to the outer part of the middle foot part, stress-free foot contact is realized. When combined with the lateral shell there is a synergistic effect, producing a soft and comfortable upper that adapts to your feet from the moment you wear it.
