Nike Joyride Flyknit Cushioned With 8,000 Beads


Nike Joyride joins Nike Air and Nike React as the latest proprietary innovation within the company’s diverse array of cushioning platforms. Joyride is engineered to help keep legs fresh by delivering a personalized underfoot experience with great impact absorption in a surprisingly light, energy-returning package.

Designed for all runners, the soft cushioning and smooth transition helps ease impact – important whether you’re a seasoned marathoner taking a shake-out run or a novice looking to find your true stride.

What’s Joyride?

Nike Joyride is a Nike-only, proprietary cushioning system made of thousands of TPE beads.

It is the result of intense, iterative trialing. One hundred and fifty materials were tested before landing on a TPE (a copolymer of plastic and rubber) for the beads.

Engineering the Pods also helped solve the problem of the beads migrating too much around the foot and becoming uncomfortable. With Pods, Nike designers were able to create a zonal-tuning for each respective iteration of Nike Joyride.

Beads are dispersed within the pods to match the zonal-tuning that aligns with the performance needs of specific points in your stride. For example, if there are 8,000 total beads in a running shoe, some 50 percent of the beads would cover the heel strike while 5 percent would offer cushioning at the toe.
