For recreational players Bauer has introduced their new line of hockey equipment including the Bauer NS ice hockey skates. The NS hockey skates have a stainless steel runner secured in the TUUK LIGHTSPEED Pro II holder. The footbed of this skate is made with EVA form for a comfortable base. Taking a look up the skate we will notice the injected composite weave quarter package which offers a beginner level of stability and support in the boot. Inside the boot of the NS ice hockey skates, Bauer includes Anaform ankle pads and a microfiber liner. The tongue on the NS ice hockey skates is a 30oz felt tongue which is flexible and comfortable. The Bauer NS ice hockey skates are designed for recreational use and for players new to the sport. They will provide adequate performance during game play but we recommend these skates for recreational use primarily.
