Bauer Supreme One100 skate will be replaced by the new Bauer Supreme One.9 in April, 2012. The Supreme One.9 skates will be second only to the Total One NXG, these skates will feature what advanced and pro level players will desire.
Bauer will continue to use their 3D anaformable composite upper (as seen advanced previous Supreme skates) which is now called Curv. You may recognize its previous name more, as it was called the ALIVE composite in previous years. The materials themselves have not been changed, they have just been given a new name (sneaky)
Inside and skate liners
Bauer Supreme One.9 skate is going to feature the traditional hydrophobic clarino liner, which is made of synthetic leather. This liner has great moisture wicking properties, and will help to keep your liner dry during games or practice. The lightweight anaform fit foam (baking available of course) ankle pads inside the boot are going to provide exceptional support, and provide less added weight than some of the anaform fit foam pads found in lower Supreme models.
The tongue will be an anatomical, 52 oz. two-piece felt tongue, exactly like the tongue featured in the Bauer Supreme One100. It will also have the same high density metatarsal guard (lace bit bar) to help protect against lace bite. Additional foot support will be found on the form-fit+ footbed, with stabilizer grip and Curv composite inserts.
Outsole (Skate base)
The Bauer Supreme One.9 will show off the reasons its aimed at top end players in this area. The outsole will of course be a full lightweight composite, under that you’ll find a TUUK Lightspeed 2 holder with LS 2.1 Power stainless steel runner.
We look forward to reviewing this skate and feel it will be yet another strong release from Bauer. As one of the top skates in the line, you can expect the Supreme One.9 skates to retail for around £599.
