The Yonex ECLIPSION X Black/White badminton shoes are the latest upgrade to replace the Power Cushion 03 (PC03) series. Yonex considers the ECLIPSION series badminton shoes to have the highest stability compared to other lines. The shoes are equipped with stiff but flexible outer Durable Skin for comfort and Power Cushion+ to provide unparalleled shock absorption and energy rebound.
Upper: Durable Skin
Midsole: ToughBrid Light, Power Cushion+, Power Graphite Sheet
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.
Power Lite Graphite
A super-light graphite plate is inserted under the middle portion of the foot to increase stability and reduce weight within the shoe.
Synchro Fit Insole
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.
For agile and stable footwork, the hexagrip pattern provides 3% more grip and is 20% lighter than standard sole material.
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 POWER CUSHION, the new POWER CUSHION ＋ boasts 25% more shock absorption and 12% more repulsion.
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.
