Those who have been fans of Source for Sports exclusive gear are in for a treat with Bauer’s new Supreme Matrix skates for 2022. Featuring Aerofoam technology, a Digi Comp quarter package, comfort edge padding, and the same boldness of the highest-end Mach skates, you can now empower your stride to the highest level at a more budget-friendly price.
Skate Fit Profile
The Matrix Junior skates come in sizes 1-3.5 and D and EE widths. D is a good size for regular-sized feet; wider feet may fit better in EE skates. The skates are also thermoformable, so you can bake the skates to fit closer to size
Boot Construction & Stiffness Profile
The Digi Comp boot keeps the skates’ performance competitive without making it too stiff and difficult to skate in. For further reinforcement and stiffness at the bottom of the boot, the Matrix skate also has a Digi Comp outsole. As part of Bauer’s Supreme line, these skates have a high stiffness profile to withstand and cater to more powerful strides.
Liner & Internal Padding
For the Matrix, Bauer used a 1-pc hydrophobic liner in addition to a wear patch over the ankles to wick away moisture and repel odour while you play. Including this kind of liner ensures that you stay comfortable in your skates all game long without the potential distraction of a wet boot. The skates use Aerofoam Technology in the ankle padding, which is designed a bit thicker than conventional foam but is more form-fitting and thermoformable.
Asymmetrical Toe Cap
For a better overall fit and to negate any unused space within the boot, Bauer turned to using an asymmetrical toe cap, a concept that has been observed in previous high-end Bauer skates. This isn’t necessarily new technology, but Bauer went ahead with the Supreme Matrix skates and enhanced the toe further for an even better fit.
The tongue is made of an updated 40oz pro stock felt material with an injected metatarsal guard. This combination of comfort and protection is designed to form fit around and over the metatarsus area for extra coverage, and the thick felt coupled with the tough exterior help shield the front ankle area of your foot from harm while you play.
The skates use a Form Fit+ footbed complete with memory foam for premium comfort on the landing.
The Matrix uses a standard flex facing lace system along the eyelets with improved durability and reliability in the materials used.
Steel Runner, Holder & Blade Profile
To hold the blade in place, the Supreme Matrix skate employs a TUUK Lightspeed Edge holder, which is the same as it was in the previous highest-end Supreme Ultrasonic skates. For steel, the Matrix uses a Pulse Stainless Steel blade, which is highly durable with a solid glide.
Now onto the most exciting part: the new Matrix graphics. The Supreme Matrix boot looks very similar to the highest-end Mach in terms of the slick, black colouration and silver accents and logos. The accents depict cybernetic patterns along the sides in addition to Bauer’s new graphic logo on the heel.
