The 2018 Bauer Supreme S29 Ice Hockey Skates are constructed for performance-level on-ice execution. The Supreme S29 is the perfect skate for the aggressive enthusiast looking for maximum performance but who doesn’t want to shell out maximum dollars. Their anatomical fit, combined with key upgraded features, helps increase overall power for an explosive stride.
- 3-D fiber composite+ quarter package for durability
- Form-Fit+ thermoformable technology for stable, custom fit
- Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder for trigger-quick steel replacement
- Memory foam ankle padding for stability and reduced power loss
- Hydrophobic grip microfiber lining for superior grip and stability
- Composite boot and outsole for improved torsional stiffness
The S29 includes many upgrades over the S27. The boot itself, which is already very durable, offers a bit more flex than the S27, allowing for maximum potential in the skate without breaking down over time. The quarter package is a 3-D fiber composite+ material which is 3-D injected for a great anatomical fit right out of the box. Fully thermoformable, this skate promises a great wrap over the foot for a customized fit before the skater even hits the ice. The tendon guard in the Supreme S29 is more flexible than in other Supreme models, allowing for a full extension through the toe-snap process.
The outsole on the S29 is a fiber composite TPU material. When combined with the full-fiber composite boot, this skate allows the aggressive skater to experience improvements in torsional stiffness—the outsole and boot’s twisting action—a feature sure to be much appreciated by players who know their stride and push the limits of their skate.
The 2-piece 48-oz. felt tongue in the S29 is both thick and comfortable, with a high-density reinforced metatarsal guard. One of the biggest upgrades in this year’s S29 is the lace bite guard. Made of high-density foam, it offers superior protection. Thick memory foam ankle pads help lock in the heel to reduce power loss when striding. The lining material is a hydrophobic grip microfiber. A little more abrasive, it has more texture than liners in other skates, to help grip your foot. The S29 footbed utilizes FORM-FIT+ technology with a stabilizer grip. This tacky texture, when combined with the liner and memory foam ankle pads, provides incredible security and stability.
The LS1 stainless steel runner on the S29 provides better edge retention and overall durability. The S29 also uses the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. The Tuuk Lightspeed Edge is the most popular holder in the NHL today because of the quick trigger system that allows skaters to swap out their steel in seconds.
The S29 is a little heavier than the S27 because the skate is constructed with more material that offers better high-end performance. All skates in the Supreme family feature a mid-heel pocket, catering to mid-instep and ankle wrap requirements, perfect for the skater with average foot dimensions.
Bauer’s new Supreme S29 packs a lot of technology into a small space. The aggressive, elite skater looking to maximize their power with an anatomical boot can rely on the S29 to boost their game to the next level.
