The Bauer Supreme S27 Senior goal skate builds upon the widespread success of the previous Supreme S170, while bringing further value to the entry-level price point. Through the use of upgraded materials and technologies in the boot, the S27 Sr skate is able to bring improved fit and function to the young goalie.
With the Supreme S170 skate coming onto the scene in early 2016 as one of the first cowlingless goal skates, it amassed a large following of goalies jumping into the skate, though it was not always the best fit for their feet. To improve the fit for goalies looking to get into a low-cut, performance-based skate, an updated grip liner and heel lock with lightly extended eyelets have been added to the Supreme S27 skate. These upgrades allow for a more comfortable, locked-in fit for the existing Supreme user, while providing a possible new option for goalies who may not have been the most comfortable in previous Supreme skates.
Stiffness throughout the boot is one of the most significant changes when comparing skates of varying price points. The Supreme S27 Junior goal skate features a Texplate quarter throughout the boot, which greatly enhances boot stiffness. Having a stiff skate boot allows for improved energy transfer when pushing into the ice. By creating a stiffer platform to push off of when skating and reducing the amount of "give" in the boot, it allows for heightened performance and value. The Bauer S27 Junior provides a blend of the right amount of boot stiffness for performance, while still remaining slightly flexible to assist the young goaltender who may not have fully developed the power to need a composite boot.
At one of the most popular price points for young goaltenders alike, the Supreme S27 Junior skate continues to elevate a popular design. For the goalie looking for a great value in fit and performance, the S27 Jr goal skate is definitely worth checking out.
