The New 6-blade Series 900+ Shaver From Panasonic — A Cut Above The Rest

Panasonic launches their closest, most comfortable shave yet; the NEW Series 900+

Designed to tackle longer, more dense stubble and tricky beards that has arisen from the increase in working from home. Japanese blade technology and Panasonic’s ultra-fast linear motor allows it to cut up to 80% of hairs in just one pass, providing lasting smoothness all day long and even after 8 hours.

The ES-LS9A and the ES-LS6A 

Shown to cut four times trickier, longer, flat-lying hairs in a single pass than the current ES-LV97 5-blade shaver. Series 900+ comes in two different configurations, the ES-LS9A which also includes a dedicated cleaning and charging station; and the ES-LS6A which includes only the shaver itself. Each includes two finish blades, two lift blades and two new thick stubble blades coated with titanium – which are especially effective at catching hairs on the jaw and around the neck. 

Japanese sword steel

The shavers use the same highest-grade stainless steel used for Japanese sword making. All six blades are made using Panasonic’s advanced Japanese blade technology, known for its strength, sharpness and durability. Each of these blades is nano-sharpened to just 30 degrees, creating an angle that keeps the blades close to the hair root. Combining durability and sharpness, it delivers a clean, close and non-irritable shave that eradicates stubble for up to eight hours. The new model also features a pop-up trimmer for pre-shave cutting and styled grooming. 

Reducing skin irritation

With an advanced ultra-fast linear motor, each of the shavers uses mag-lev technology. Using the world’s strongest magnets, the Series 900+ is capable of 84,000 cross-cutting actions per minute. And this ultra-fast speed keeps going, even as the battery begins to deplete, protecting against the kind of skin irritation that can occur when cutting speed declines in standard shavers. A flexible head and floating six-blade construction that moves in 22 independent directions, provides an accurate shave and minimises pressure on the skin, getting the job done quickly and cleanly. As each stroke covers more ground, in a short space of time, the pressure exerted on the skin is reduced by 10% (when compared to the current 5-blade ES-LV67 shaver). 

Premium beard sensor technology

Recognising that every beard is different, Panasonic has created its most responsive beard sensor technology yet. This detects beard density and thickness 220 times per second, adjusting the motor’s power 14 times per second and following the contours of the face by rotating from side to side. 

Minimalistic, stylish and practical

The Series 900+ has a superior design. In matte black with metallic accents, the sculpted, ergonomic shape makes it easy to use, while a multi-LED display shows the battery and operation status at a glance. The ES-LS9A is also equipped with a compact auto cleaning and charging station, activated with the touch of a button. 

Both the ES-LS9A and ES-LS6A are now available starting at RRP £499.
