The Bauer Supreme 2S Pro Skates were built with one goal in mind; to provide the most effective and efficient stride a Bauer skate can possibly produce. The 2S Pro accomplished this with a new Carbon Curv Composite boot, the Reflex Pro Tongue, the SpeedPlate 2.0 Custom Footbed and the Tuuk LS5 Carbon Runners.
Completely new to Bauer, the 2S Pro boot features Carbon Curv Composite that is lighter and more heat-moldable than the standard Curv Composite. While the boot anatomically wraps around the sides of the feet with elite-level support, the new Reflex Pro Tongue utilizes moldable composite inserts for a custom fit on top of the foot too. Similar to that of the Vapor 1X, the Reflex Pro offers 20% more protection and the small flex inserts help the tongue to spring-back during the skating stride.
Completing the 360-degree custom fit is the heat-moldable SpeedPlate 2.0. Unlike traditional footbeds, the SpeedPlate 2.0 forms personalized arch and heel support for 20% better energy transfer since it adapts to a player’s unique foot shape, eliminates negative space and enhances stability. The LockFit+ Pro Liner helps to secure the foot inside the boot with a tacky bottom portion while the upper portion focuses on abrasion-resistance and moisture management.
Sitting inside of the Tuuk Edge Holder are the innovative Tuuk LS5 Carbon runners. Bauer used a soft inner core coated with carbon-nitrate which results in the best edge-bite and edge-retention they have ever offered. The amount of edge-bite is so significant that most players will go down to (larger) hollow to get the same feel they are used to, which then improves glide.
While the 1S skate featured a Supreme-specific lacing system, the 2S Pro boasts the new Reflex Pro. Bauer softened the design and re-shaped the bottom half in order to achieve better wrap over the foot. Bauer also included a second set of three eyelets, giving players more options when it comes to different methods of lacing up the skates. The C-Flex Tendon Guard is another avenue in which players can customize the 2S Pro; remove the insert for maximum flexibility or use the medium insert for a more traditional stiffness.
