The Bauer Supreme S29 Intermediate leg pad may look similar in structure to last year's popular Supreme S190 Intermediate, though it has been greatly revamped to bring true pro-level features to a mid-range price-point. The use of updated internal and external materials make the Supreme S29 Int an excellent option for the growing goalie looking to benefit from Bauer's latest innovations.
The premier feature that the Bauer S29 Int Pad brings down from the 2S Pro is the C.O.R.Tech material on the sliding surface. The Supreme S29 Int goalie leg pads feature this on the knee and the calf and this material increases slide speed immensely, as seen on both the 1X and the 1S from years past.
The Bauer S29 intermediate goalie pads have a softened version of the core from the Bauer Totalone NXG pads from a few years past. This core is a very structurally sound piece that will provide durability and performance that you would expect from a pro pad down at a mid-range price. The core has been softened slightly to make sure the pad still moves and bends the way that a goalie needs it to move. This core also helps the S29 intermediate goalie pads weigh a full 10% less than the S190 that they are replacing.
