SAFERUN 200: Newly designed running shoes with more stability

Date
26 February 2020

Yonex Co.,Ltd. is proud to announce the new POWER CUSHION SAFERUN 200 running shoes, launching May 2020.

 

The SAFERUN series was designed for health-conscious, light runners and joggers who run approximately 7-9 min/km. Yonex’s unique design reduces the burden on the knees through protecting feet and joints during constant impact. The SAFERUN 200 models feature POWER CUSHIONTM+, 3D POWER GRAPHITE DRIVE and FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM.  

 

The POWER GRAPHITE DRIVE is designed with a 30% wider midfoot area and additional two recessed grooves on the sole side. This is to maintain its lightweight and increase stability to avoid injuries. In addition, FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM, a cushioning material, is added to the entire sole for lightweight and comfort.

The SAFERUN 200, built for both jogging and running, allows users to enjoy running while preventing and reducing knee pain.

INNOVATION

1. New 3D POWER GRAPHITE DRIVE

A graphite sheet is inserted in the entire foot with two additional recessed grooves to increase stability and propel you forward to the next step. The graphite sheet prevents twisting and helps restore the sole after flexing. It bends 2.5 times more and flexes1.5 times more in the torque* compared to the previous model, SAFERUN 100. The new lightweight running shoes are designed to reduce the burden on muscles for light runners, while maintaining stability.

*Tested by YONEX

2. POWER CUSHIONTM+

 

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.

*1) Tested by Japan Vehicle Inspection Association *2) Tested by the BOKEN Quality Evaluation Institute (Based on JIS standards). *3) Tested by Yonex *4) Measured by the Japan Vehicle Inspection Association.

3. FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM

The strong and lightweight FEATHER BOUNCE FOAM sole is designed to generate 20%* more bounce with each step which improves forward momentum. The soft thick sole reduces impact force on knees by dispersing landing energy.
