The Bauer Supreme 3S blocker is designed for a performance level goalie, on the ice roughly 2-3 times per week. Featuring some of the same new innovation as the Ultrasonic, the 3S is a high quality blocker with a budget friendly price. Some of the new features include the 14.5” QUATTRO Palm and upgraded pro coverage finger protection.
The external material of the Bauer 3S blocker is the C.O.R.Tech ST. The same as the material of the leg pads, the C.O.R.Tech ST makes for extremely durable externals for the blocker, while extending the distance of a rebound. The Coefficient of Restitution Technology is designed to quickly reset the material of the blocker back to its original state, which in turn gives off a longer rebound.
The blocker board on the 3S is made up of Bauer’s Shocklite material. The combination of the Shocklite board and the C.O.R.Tech skin will produce a longer rebound, giving you more time to reset and get in position for the next shot.
The palm in the Bauer 3S blocker is going to be very similar to the Ultrasonic. The 14.5” QUATTRO Palm is a familiar feeling palm material, but has the amount of material reduced to improve the feel of the stick. The extra materials in the fingers have been removed, making the blocker palm more similar to a player palm.
The Thermomax liner is used on the blocker, to absorb excessive sweat and dry out the blocker. The liner will be great for multiple ice times per week without having the blocker still being sweaty when heading back on to the ice.
Side Hand Protection
The shape of the blocker is going to be extremely familiar to those who have used a Supreme blocker recently. The side hand shape and protection is brought along from the 2S Pro, providing protection with Bauer’s Shocklite materials. Stock with Bauer’s Ultrasonic blocker there is no thumb pillow, but can be added in when going the custom route.
The cuff on the Bauer 3S blocker is a Free Floating cuff. Taking inspiration from the 2S Pro’s Free Flex cuff, the 3S offers great mobility and comfort in the cuff area.
The finger protection in the 3S has been upgraded to the pro level coverage of the Ultrasonic. Shocklite and Poron materials are found in the finger and hand protection of the blocker. The finger protection has been improved to have more adjustability, allowing the padding to be tightened closer to or loosened away from the finger, optimizing the fit and feel for each goalie. The fingers have again been split into singular padding for the index finger, and the remaining three fingers protected together.
The Bauer Supreme 3S INT blocker is available in all White, White/Black, White/Navy, White/Blue, and White/Red. The 3S Goalie Blocker is available in Regular hand (worn on your right hand) in all colourways, and Full Right (worn on your left hand) in All White.
