Brand new for 2018, Bauer has continued their revolutionary line and brought out the new Bauer Supreme 2S Pro Senior Goalie Chest & Arm Protector. The 2S Pro Senior Chest Protector will feature new NHL spec sizing and protection throughout making the Supreme line of equipment better than before.
Starting with the largest change, the 2S Pro Chest will come with NHL spec shoulder floaters for a seamless design. With having shoulder floaters that are slightly decreased in width, this will give added mobility and a better range of head movement without sacrificing protection. The floaters are now reinforced with Powerlite construction to provide high levels of protection for goalies facing quality shooters. Following the guidelines of NHL legality, the shoulder floaters have been reduced and rounded to conform around the body. The density of these caps is around a medium density to provide protection and comfort.
Within the neck area, there is a unique feature in which there are two adjustable elastic straps which can be tightened or loosened to provide a specific fit around the goaltenders neck. This simple adjustment also helps with the length and how the chest will hang down on the body.
Moving through to the arms, the 2S Pro has Powerlite construction and reinforcements throughout the bicep area. Behind all of this is Bauer’s combination of Curv composite and HD foams to provide great protection from harder shots. Also, the elbows are still covered with Poron XRD for a seamless integration under the jersey but provide protection in case of an odd shot or falling back on the elbow.
On the body, there is a unique design with how the stomach is sewn to create great mobility and protection. This design has been carried over from the original predecessor, dating back to the One95. In the heart area, the sternum protection has been widened to integrate underneath of the shoulder floaters to cover any gaps.
On the spine plate, Bauer has changed the design and added in Vent Armor foam to increase breathability, reduce weight and even add a bit more protection from any odd situations. Lining the 2S Pro is Bauer’s proprietary 37.5 Liner and Sanitized technology to move moisture away from the body and speed up the drying process.
Compared to the S29 Senior, the 2S Pro Chest Protector will feature higher levels of protection, materials and overall durability.
