Brand new for 2018, Bauer has continued their revolutionary line and brought out the new Bauer Supreme 2S Pro Senior Goalie Glove. The 2S Glove will feature tweaks in the build process, construction and overall durability to make the Supreme line of equipment better than before.
The 2S Pro Glove starts off with a crisp digitally printed graphic to increase a clean surface area. With the reduction of stitches and graphic, the weight is also reduced and gives the glove a lightweight feel on the hand. Much like the 2S leg pads, the glove will also feature a new C.O.R.TECH – ST skin to provide better durability over time.
Starting with the cuff, the 2S Pro will feature a solid 1-piece cuff to help any negative flex in the cuff and wrist, giving the goalie a clean blocking surface when they need to squeeze in tight. In the palm, there will be XRD Foam reinforcements to reduce the amount of stingers and increase protection if a puck is not cleanly caught. Adding to the perimeter, there are Curv Composites materials added to give more protection and help retain the shape of the glove over time. For the closure of the glove, the 2S Pro will feature a 75 degree style closure which will give the goalie the ability to catch the pucks above or past the finger tips.
Moving to the back of the glove, the 2S Pro has redesigned padding to help create strategic cuts to make the glove closure feel more natural. This Free Flex backside starts across the back of the finger tips and moves all the way up through the wrist which will give the goalie full range of movement to get their hand in position to make key saves. Lined across the hand is Bauer’s 37.5 technologies which will help keep the hand dry throughout game play and disperse sweat away from the hand.
New for the 2S Pro is a Double T build which adds more lacing in to the pocket of the glove. With more lace being added, it reduces the amount of plastics and leathers and adds more soft materials to help retain pucks that enter the pocket. This design is met with specific lacing colors to match the main graphic on the glove.
Compared to the Supreme S29 glove, the 2S will feature higher quality materials both internally and externally that will allow the glove to have better durability and a lighter weight.
If you are an elite-level goalie who is looking for key upgrades in durability, easier full hand closure with specific reinforced protection and palm comfort, the Bauer Supreme 2S Pro Senior Goalie Glove will be for you.
