Rolling out as the middle price point for TRUE’s brand new Catalyst line of stock skates is the Catalyst 7 hockey skate. This skate is tailored for the high-performance agility player who wants some of the best features TRUE has to offer without quite breaking the bank. The Catalyst 7 features a TRUEShell one-piece carbon fibre shell, a dynamic flex tendon guard, a FibreShield side panel, and a ShiftMax holder.
Skate Fit Profile
The skates at the Intermediate level come in sizes 6-6.5 in Regular and Wide widths, and 4-5.5 in Regular width. When deciding on a skate size, a good rule of thumb is to take the player’s shoe size and drop it by 1 or 1.5 sizes. If you need a larger or smaller size, the skates are also available in Senior and Junior sizes.
Boot Construction & Stiffness Profile
Neurofit+ is a thermoformable shell technology with a more anatomical shape for a superior fit. The design is meant to further increase your connection to the skate with a more neuromuscular unification. This tech combines the previous tech, TrueShell and Axenic. TRUE also integrated a FiberShield high-grade synthetic side panel for extra protection in that area. The shell on the Catalyst skate has been softened, in response to feedback for the previous TF skates.
Liner & Internal Padding
The skates use a black moisture-wicking liner to help keep you playing comfortably without the discomfort of a wet boot. The internal padding is made from elite orthotic-grade performance foam for a better feel inside the skate.
The toe cap was crafted with TRUE’s new low-profile design, Carv. This cap promotes a more aggressive and aerodynamic playing style ideal for agility-based players with its sharper cutting edge and lighter weight. This cap is sleeker and lighter than what’s been seen previously on TRUE skates.
The Catalyst 7 uses a traditional felt tongue combined with TRUE’s T-Guard insert for enhanced protection against pucks, sticks, and lace bite. The tongue is lightweight and fully adjustable and replaceable.
TRUE integrated a Personalized Fit System (PFS) uses insole placement in the skates to accommodate low, mid, and high arch feet. This system came from the TF series and allows players to customize their skate fit without having to order custom. The placement of the fit inserts is marked clearly on the insole to make them easier to position in the skate.
The Shift holder debuted with the TF series, and now the Shift Max holder has improved durability with a thicker wall formation. Shift Max still features BenchChange technology for a faster blade replacement without the need for extra tools, like a magnetized blade change tool. The runner that the Catalyst 7 skates use is Shift Max high-grade 7CR stainless steel, which is strong and built to last.
On the back, the Catalyst 7 skates feature an elite-level dynamic flex tendon guard. It is attached with a single rivet for easy replaceability, and its toughness also comes with some recoil for that extra push while you skate.
The skates take on the Catalyst black and gold colouration, with the addition of sleek silver accents. Its nickname “Cat7” can be found on the sides and toe, and credit to the designer Scott Van Horne is on the inside of the tendon guard on the liner. TRUE’s text logo and more references to Catalyst are scattered along the boot and on the toe.
