The Bauer Nexus Elevate skates are a Source for Sports exclusive model based on the Nexus N7000 which feature added performance upgrades as well as unique graphic upgrades. The Nexus line of skates from Bauer provide a volume fit with additional room built in the skate for players with wider feet and high insteps. The quarter package of the skate features a tech mesh nylon material designed to provide longer last while maintaining good stiffness resulting in a better power transfer.
The Elevate skates feature an upgraded liner from the N9000 that offers a Hydra Max 2 mesh for better moisture management. Lightweight memory foam ankle pads are sandwiched between the liner and quarter package for an extremely comfortable fit feel even out of the box. The tongue on the Elevate offers an anatomical two-piece construction of white felt with a PE insert metatarsal guard to reduce any lace bite or impacts.
Moving down the skate, an upgraded TPU outsole provides good stability and helps reduce torsion of the skate when striding and a PET graphic offers a clean look. The Bauer Lightspeed Edge holder sits 3mm taller than the previous Lightspeed 2 holder to tighten the turning radius of the skate. Finally, the Elevate features upgraded LS1 Stainless steel runners to provide a more consistent sharpening each time.
Source Exclusive upgrades include LS1 Edge steel runners, a TPU outsole with PET graphics, and a Hydra Max mesh liner.
