Now, let your game pick your skates
Choose the skates that best fit your game.
With the introduction of the revolutionary BAUER PERFORMANCE SKATE FIT SYSTEM, you can now choose the skates which best fit your game.
For years your feet determined which skates you wore, but not anymore. Now, how you skate, and which skate best elevates your performance is what matters.
We have previously written an extensive blog on this subject which you can read here.
The TLDR version is that Bauer have utilised the data science and analysis of 800,000 foot scans from their 3D Skate Labs. From this they have created three distinct fits, called Fit 1, Fit 2 & Fit 3 in place of D & EE.
The Supreme & Vapor skate collections are available in three distinct fits – so every foot shape is covered. Now, every player gets to choose their own performance profile and their optimum fit.
Choose your style first
Now that you can fit in Supreme and Vapor skates, you may be unsure how the Supreme and Vapor skate collections differ to each other, and which to choose.
The SUPREME collection is engineered for players who value straight away speed and powerful acceleration.
Range of motion with optimal wrap
Maximum stride length and power output
Straight line speed
The VAPOR collection is designed for players who put a premium on agility and lateral movement.
Fast starts and quick turns
Structural support and responsiveness
Unpredictable player movements
Let's take a look at how the skates are constructed differently to suit these different playing styles.
SUPREME – Flexible Tendon Guard
Allows for full range of motion through the skating stride, maximising power
VAPOR – Supportive Tendon Guard
Provides support while turning and responsiveness to quick changes of direction
SUPREME - Power Cut
Helps to promote a full range of motion for maximum stride length and power output
VAPOR - Agility Cut
An on the toes feel for quick starts and tight turns
SUPREME – Symmetrical Taper
Creates more wrap over the top of the foot with a new boot cut, that allows for a proper forward flex while loading energy in the stride
VAPOR – Asymmetrical Taper
Uses an offset aggressive boot cut, to help amplify faster movements when changing directions quickly
SUPREME – Flex facing
Flexible properties in the facing help maximise the wrap over the forefoot whilst allowing proper forward flexion
VAPOR – Integrated Injected Facing
Connects the toe box and ensures a supportive lacing system across the foot for responsiveness and lightness in the skate
SUPREME – Unibody Outsole
Wraps the lower portion of the boot to create stiffness to amplify energy transfer for powerful skating
VAPOR – Flexible Outsole
Traditional outsole allows for more flex and absorbs energy during quick turns for smoother transitions
SUPREME – PULSE TI
Titanium coated, taller steel creates premium edge retention and on-ice performance through take off power and tight turns. Features Bauer’s ‘Power Profile’ from ProSharp.
