The Bauer 2018 Nexus N2900 ice hockey skate is perhaps the perfect high-volume skate for the advanced player who is on the ice several times a week, year-round, or for the intermediate player starting to play more competitively and frequently. Adults with a larger foot looking for more support and durability combined in a high-performance skate will also be wise to look closely at the Nexus N2900. Chances are they’ll like what they see.
- 3-D Fiber Composite quarter package for stiff, anatomical comfort
- Fiber Composite TPU outsole for superior rigidity and increased torsional resistance
- 48-oz., 2-piece tongue with high-density foam for lasting wear and comfort
- Metatarsal insert for reliable foot protection
- Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder for trigger-quick blade changes
- Tuuk LS1 stainless steel runner for enhanced durability
The quarter package on the N2900 boot features a 3-D injected Fiber Composite material—an upgrade over the N2700, with a significant increase in stiffness. The boot is thermoformable, lightweight, and anatomically shaped right out of the box for a comfortable feel even before the skate’s been baked for the ultimate custom fit.
The outsole on the N2900 is made of Bauer’s Fiber Composite TPU material, another upgrade over the N2700, with better rigidity than the TPU material alone offers. The N2900 provides better torsional resistance—the boot and outsole’s twisting action—ideal for the intermediate or advanced-level player looking for maximum power.
The N2900 includes a 48-oz, 2-piece black felt tongue with an upgraded lace bite guard. The tongue is made of high-density (HD) foam and polyethelene (PE) and features a mid-density metatarsal guard for excellent protection against pucks, slashes, and impacts. Inside the boot, the skaters will appreciate Bauer’s memory foam ankle pads that, after baking, will lock in the heel and prevent almost all of the slippage associated with power loss. The liner is a bright blue microfiber that’s soft to the touch and will wick moisture from the feet for dry comfort. Under all the plushness sits Bauer’s Form-Fit footbed. The Form-Fit footbed includes a tacky texture in the heel that, combined with the liner, provides maximum comfort and stability.
The Nexus N2900 uses Tuuk’s LS1 stainless steel runner which is a slightly higher grade runner than the N2700, with better edge retention and durability. The runner’s polished finish improves a skater’s glide down the ice. Holding the LS1 is Tuuk’s extremely popular Lightspeed Edge holder featuring Tuuk’s quick-release trigger system. The Lightspeed Edge is the most popular holder in the NHL right now because of this trigger release—the steel can be changed in seconds
