The Hi-Tec S702 4:SYS squash shoe is
Hi-Tec's top of the range performance squash shoe used by World No.1,
World Champion & Commonwealth Games Champion Nick Matthew, four
time World Champion Amr Shabana and four time British Open Champion
The Hi-Tec S702 4:SYS squash shoe features 4:SYS midsole,
Impact Zone and Peak Force outsole technologies and is the most
advanced high performance shoe in the Hi-Tec range.
Hi-Tec is the world’s No.1 squash shoe supplier and continue
to push the boundaries with their squash shoe developments with the
continued introduction of new technologies.
SYS midsole allows the foot to move in a more natural manner
and provides cushioning and support where required. SYS midsole also
helps reduce energy transfer from heel strike to when the shot is
Impact Zone is located in the heel and helps to control and
stabilise the foot on landing by providing cushioning, shock absorption
Peak Force outsole is located in the 'waist' of the shoe this provides maximum grip, increases stability and control.
Hi-Tec and biomechanical experts, Quintic Consultancy have
researched the forces exposed to squash players through pressure
mapping and video analysis. The results showed that whilst a runner is
exposed to an average of three times their bodyweight of force, squash
proved to be much more high impact and can cause up to SIX times
Now imagine the implication this may have on a regular
player’s knees, ankles and hip joints. With the single-minded focus of
producing a shoe that is purely based around performance, Hi-Tec
delivered the 4:SYS range that is proven to be the world’s ‘best indoor
Three unique technologies combine to achieve this claim:
The Impact Zone provides up to 38% more effective heel impact absorption
The 4:SYS midsole delivers up to 34% reduction in total forces when the shot is played
The Peak Force outsole gives up to 6 times better grip than other major brands tops shoes
Essentially the results from independent testing show
dramatic reduction in both impact forces and loading rates, the time
your body has to deal with the force. Both of which are known to be a
key predictor in the potential for sports related injuries. So for more
control, cushioning and grip the Hi-Tec collection is proven to still
be the best available for you and your game.
The Hi-Tec S702 4:SYS squash shoe also benefits from Hi-Tec’s new innovative ion-mask.
Ion-mask technology is breakthrough technology from Hi-Tec
which binds to the surface of the shoe meaning it is able to repel most
liquids, keeping your feet drier than ever previously possible.
