VICTOR has long been dedicated to the development and innovation of badminton shoe technology. With a design centering on groundbreaking lightweight, S99ELITE is born as the lightest footwear VICTOR has ever made. The perfect combination of large JACQUARD EM upper and NITRO-LITE midsole greatly reduces the weight of the shoes and further relieves muscle stress and tension, enabling lighter footwork and better performance.
Upgraded outsole rubber, slip-resistant performance increases by 21% on dry PU floor.
The inner surface of the toe is equipped with protective coatings and a wear-resistant layer for upgraded endurance. In a wear level testing, the wear-resistant technology applied to the toe is proved 8 times more wear-resistant than average PU leather.
To achieve ultimate lightweight, the midsole plays a more crucial role than the upper. The midsole accounts for about 25 percent of the weight of a badminton shoe and is key to the wearing experience. It is challenging to manufacture a midsole that can deliver both lightweight and incredible wearing experience. The NITRO-LITE midsole of S99ELITE is the groundbreaking solution to the problem. Unlike traditional method of making midsoles, the innovative technology impregnates high performance EVA with nitrogen to make the embryos filled with gas and rapidly inflated under pressure difference. The NITRO-LITE midsole is not only lightweight but also has fine and evenly distributed apertures, which makes the structure stronger than traditional foaming material after moulding and shaping.
