This Source for Sports Exclusive product features elements from the top of the line skates in Bauer’s Supreme line at a margin of the cost.

Performance Skate Fit System
Bauer’s Performance Skate Fit System is a revolutionary new way to fit skates. The traditional D and EE widths have now been replaced by Fit 1, Fit 2, and Fit 3. This might sound a bit confusing, however this will give you more skate options to wear in the Bauer family of skates, ultimately providing you with the perfect fitting skate.
Previously you made Bauer skate purchases based on the “Vapor Fit”, “Supreme Fit”, or “Nexus Fit”. Now all 3 skate fits are available to wear with “Supreme Features”, or “Vapor features”, whichever aligns with your preference. Below is how the new Bauer Skate Fit System compares to previous years of Bauer Skates.
- Fit 1 = Low Volume, Narrow Width (closest aligned to the Vapor fit profile)
- Fit 2 = Medium Volume, Medium Width (closest aligned to the Supreme fit profile)
- Fit 3 = High Volume, Wide Width (closest aligned to the Nexus fit profile)

Bauer has constructed the Supreme Matrix with the focus on performance level hockey players. The Supreme Matrix features a 3D lasted quarter package with Flex Composite technology. The Flex Composite with Motion Flex Technology used in the Matrix increases stability in the boot while offering exceptional ankle flexion. Comfort Edge Padding compliments the top of the boot to reduce bite when performing starts, stops, and aggressive tight turns.
The tongue found on the Matrix skate is the same one used on the Supreme 3S Pro. The tongue resembles the Classic Felt tongue you would normally find in the myBauer custom option. The tongue includes a 52 oz. felt base with an injected insert on the face to provide protection and comfort against lace bite.
A Hydrophobic Microfiber liner provides grip and moisture management for peak performance. Pairied with the Hydrophobic Microfiber, Bauer has upgraded the internal padding to AeroFoam memory foam which delivers a pillowy soft comfort while providing a snug ankle wrap.
LS5 Carbon Coated Steel comes stock with the Matrix skate. This steel has been carbon-coated to aid in edge-retention resulting in less sharpening visits and better performance on the ice. The steel also sits higher than previous versions creating a greater angle of attack on every stride. The holder used on the Matrix skate is the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge with quick release trigger system. This holder is the number one holder used by NHL and professional players everywhere.
The Supreme Matrix skate uses the same Form Fit+ Memory Foam Comfort footbed that can be found in the Supreme 3S skate. It will provide cushion and comfort for the skate wearer all ice time long.
