A Revolution in Goalie Movement - With a number of upgrades over the Ultrasonic such as a redesigned liner, fit system and tongue, along with an array of custom options; the Bauer Pro skate is a great option for the elite level goaltender looking for one of the most comfortable and best performing skates available to them.
A Revolution in Goalie Movement - With the release of their newly condensed skate line, we wanted to take a look at the new Bauer Elite and GSX skates while showcasing both their similarities and differences in order to make the choice between the two easier. Let's take a look at the technologies and features packed into these skates that make them great options at their respective price points.
For 2021, CCM looks to build on the success of the incredibly popular EFlex 4 leg pad while updating them to compete with the modern market. With innovations such as an improved core and sliding surface as well as a molded knee roll and new printed graphics, the EFlex 5 leg pads take the responsive, flexible pad EFlex users know and love up to the next level.
With the release of the new E-Flex 5 leg pad comes the newly refreshed E5.9 and 5.5 pads. A new knee roll design, refined core, the E5.9 and E5.5 models are sure to be a favorite among performance and recreation level goalies.
One area where CCM has always stood above the rest is in their gloves. The E5.9 and E5.5 catcher and blocker feature a couple notable upgrades over their predecessors giving them an improved feel, protection and some weight reduction.
With the release of all the impressive new technologies and features in the Hyperlite pad, the midline 3X has been placed in the shadows. However, with the same StabiliFlex knee block, upgraded materials and a lightweight core, the 3X is by far the best iteration of a pro pad at a mid line price point we’ve ever seen.
One thing that Bauer has done a great job of in recent years is translating the features and feel of their pro gloves down to the performance level. The 3X gloves got the same redesign the Hyperlite saw with a tweaked shape, break and updated materials and components making them one of the best value glove and blocker soon to be on our wall.
New for 2021, the Hyperlite pads bring modern technology and innovations to a soft, flexible pad. The new pad features key upgrades such as a new StabiliFlex knee block, updated leg channel and strapping as well as a tweaked boot and flex profile to create the best Vapor pad seen to date.
