The new Aerus Z2 achieves both lightness and stability. With each generation, the Aerus series prides itself on pushing the boundaries of lightness.
This new 5th generation model is the lightest ever badminton shoe from Yonex, weighing in at just 240 grams per shoe. These shoes are slimmed down by adopting a new sole made of Feather Light X, a material that is 12% lighter in weight, while generating more repulsion than the previous Aerus models. A key ingredient to stability is reliable grip. Radial Blade Sole is implemented to provide ultimate grip.
With a new seamless upper design, made up of 100% recycled materials, the Durable Skin Light and Double Russel Mesh bring less weight with better fit, flexibility and breathability – easy on your feet as well as the environment. With the Power Cushion+ and improved 3D Power Graphite Drive, the Aerus Z2 is not only light stable and eco-friendly, but also converts the impact of each step into repulsion and power for the next.
Feather Light X: Yonex’s lightest midsole material and is one of the key technologies in making the Aerus Z2 lighter while providing smooth, fluid footwork.
Seamless Upper: The upper is built with a single primary piece which is a combination of the Durable Skin Light, a strong and lightweight material, and the Double Russel Mesh, a highly breathable fabric. The two materials are fused together using a vacuum-pressing method which enables the upper to be built with less material.
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.
Radial Blade Sole: The grip pattern of the sole has been redesigned creating the Radial Blade Sole. By finely arranging a windmill shape that combines areas with large and small indentations, the weight of the shoe is dispersed, and the grip is improved by approximately 3%. Resulting in a grip that supports quick dashes and sudden stops.
Power Cushion+: The Aerus Z2 features a specially shaped wedge of power cushion+ in the heel designed specifically to absorb shock associated with the footwork of badminton. By improving shock absorption, our power cushion+ technology transforms impact into energy. A 28% increase in shock absorption and a 62% increase in repulsion when compared to the standard EVA materials.
3D Power Graphite Sheet: The sole of the Aerus Z2 is built with Power Graphite Sheet, a carbon sheet that prevents twisting of the foot and improves stability during the most strenuous of movements. Working together with power cushion+, the absorbed impact power is converted into a propulsive force to help propel you into your next step.
