The Bauer Nexus 5000 is a great skate for anyone who is playing at a less demanding pace and schedule. The 5000 displays many comfortable features such as the compression molded EVA boot, to the 2-piece felt tongue and anaform ankle pads. The Nexus 5000 won't require the break-in time or effort that something like a composite boot would require. New to the Nexus line, the Edge Holder sits 3mm taller, allowing for a more aggressive turn. The Edge holder revolutionized the way skate steel is replaced by introducing a trigger system that allows you to change your own steel in seconds without even leaving the bench! This skate holds true to the Bauer Nexus goal, which is a comfortable, traditional fit.
