YONEX SAFERUN 100 MEN
POWER CUSHION supports the comfort of your run
A raw egg will rebound 4 meters without breaking when dropped from 7 meters above a POWER CUSHION mat.
POWER CUSHION+ further increase the shock absorption by 28% and repulsion by 62%
The optimum foot landing angle for maximum stability
The toe section is reduced in weight to help guide dorsiflexion movement, preventing misstep.
Zero ankle flexion prevents fatigue and misstep caused by an unsteady foot landing. The Toe-Light Design achieves a natural landing without ankle flexion.
The balance point is more than 15mm from the midpoint of the shoe towards the heel, making the toe section lighter for an ideal foot landing angle.
The SAFERUN is designed with a view to runners who are less muscled, while competitors’ products are often set the balance point to approx. 10mm from the midpoint. (*Tested with size 26.0cm shoes.)
FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM
A strong and lightweight FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM sole designed to generate 20%* more bounce with each step improving forward momentum. The soft thick sole reduces impact force on knees by dispersing landing energy.
3D POWER GRAPHITE
By incorporating a 3D graphite plate from the heel to the midsole, the heel is firmly supported, stabilizing the landing and reducing lateral movement. In addition, the graphite is laminated in the optimal fiber direction, enhancing both flexibility and stability. With the addition of 3D POWER GRAPHITE strain on muscles is greatly reduced.
*When comparing inward tilt of the ankle while stepping with/ without the presence of 3D POWER GRAPHITE, inward tilt was ****% less with added graphite. (tested at the Niigata Institute for Health and Sports Medicine)
