Bauer KONEKT Goalie Skate Review
As neat as the skate may already look on paper, those leaked photos don’t do the Bauer KONEKT justice. We were lucky enough to get to be one of the first to trial the skate, or even one of the first just to see it in person. As expected, the KONEKT goalie skate looks, feels, and straps in just like a ski boot—and it’s here to reinvent the elite goaltender hockey skate.

Bauer Vapor 3X Leg Pads Review
With the release of all the impressive new technologies and features in the Hyperlite pad, the midline 3X has been placed in the shadows.

Bauer Vapor 3X Catcher & Blocker Review
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.

Warrior took the time to fully develop this Ritual mask line, learning from issues with other masks in order to build something capable of working for everybody.
