The improvement from the 1S gear to the 2S is pronounced, and brings Bauer’s goalie innovation to an entirely new level.
C.O.R. Tech Skin Technology is a one-piece construction that is key to reducing the overall weight of the pad compared to traditional cutting and sewing techniques. This molded construction increases the coefficient of restitution (C.O.R.) by pushing rebounds away from the goalie; the faster the pad returns to its original shape, the harder the rebound. Not only that, but sliding is fast and easy with the C.O.R. Tech skin.
Having the cover molded over the pad instead of sewn on makes a big difference in weight of the pad. Bauer’s CURV composite technology in the insert of the thigh rise improves ice seal and closes the 5 hole for those great saves. There are no true breaks, but these pads feel like a single below knee break with the rigid CURV thigh.
New, digitally printed graphics not only decrease the weight of the pad from traditional stitched pads, but they also allow for more detailed graphics on custom orders.
The Bauer Supreme 1S OD1N goal pads feature an all new leg channel with Bauer’s 37.5º technology that regulates core body temperature. Fabrics with 37.5º technology dry up to five times faster than similar materials, keeping your legs sweat-free and in the right position for control.
Flexible hook and loop straps at the calf and boot allow you to customize the fit for worry-free performance and optimal pad rotation. If you are a traditionalist and prefer leather straps, tabs are on the pad so you can attach them. An all-new toe bridge and elastic lace are designed to relieve hip stress that is often a problem with traditional a skate lace which resists a goalie’s movements.
Available in new sizing measurements of S, M, L, XL, XXL, Bauer’s new goal pad measuring device can better evaluate sizing for an accurate fit.
