Kyoto-Pro Nexus Cross-Stitch Men Specifications
Shock Absorbent Pitch Cross-Stitch – Arranged in a grid, lines of perpendicular stitching at 6mm intervals mirror the layout of Tezashi hand stitched Futon. The Pitch-Zashi stitch used through the Futon reduces the compression of the Men padding and emphasizes the absorption of shock at the point of impact. This calculated balance of 6mm cross stitch spacing 3mm pitch changes the way the Buton deforms when impacted, ensuring structural strength no matter the angle the Buton is hit and limiting the spread of shock from the point of impact.
Extra-Protective Men-Buton – the body of the Men pad is constructed from multiple protective layers, with a dual layer of selected natural felts at its core. Those layers of differential density have been carefully selected and tested to best balance weight, density and impact management. Additional layers of padding material are integrated across the primary target area, increasing protection and overall thickness in this “high traffic” zone.
Hishi-Zashi Men-Dare Stitch – Continuing the perpendicular cross-stitch utilised in the strike zone, the Naname angle applied on the Men-Dare forms a stunning Hishi-Zashi diamond pattern and allows the Men to sit correctly from the outset of use, preventing interference with head posture and overcoming traditional “breaking in” periods.
IBB Duralumin Men-Gane – designed to increase the strength of the Men-Gane, and to improve the balance point of the Men, IBB Men-Gane have two stainless steel bars in the upper portion of the structure. Whilst stronger and as a result more resistant to damage, more importantly, this Men-Gane style brings the balance point of the Men back towards the central column of the body, putting less stress on the neck of the Kenshi and minimising impact on the posture.
Noukon Naname-Zashi Ago Shokko – Dark blue dots, arranged in Naname-Zashi diagonal grid, form the pattern covering the main area of the Tsuki-Dare (also known as Ago). Covering the Ago and forming the base of the pattern, finest quality Aizome dyed deer leather offers both durability and class.
Shirurido Microfibre Uchiwa – the ultimate in both comfort and sweat management, the internal band which surrounds and contacts the face offers the best solution for quality and comfort of fit.
Tezashi Style Futon Edging – with classic hand stitched styling, the rear edge of the Futon features the ultimate low key ascetic look with a subtle Tezashi style flattening of the Futon, no Sumi-Gawa and the distinctive cut corner reducing sharp angles which can catch on an opponent as you pass.
Deluxe Leather Finish – Internally, the Inden style black Tombo Ura-Gawa is tastefully understated and externally the Mimi-Gawa match the deluxe Kon-Gawa deer leather of the Ago.
