2017 Bauer Supreme 1S Stick
The 2017 Bauer Supreme 1S stick is the top-of-the-line model in the Supreme line and is ideal for elite-level players who unload explosive one-timers and bomb heavy slapshots. Its high kick point, square shaft geometry, power taper, and reactive blade are formulated to maximize energy transfer and give you your hardest shot.
Bauer made several improvements on the 2016 Supreme 1S stick by adding three new components to the 2017 model. The most notable new feature is the RenewCore blade technology. RenewCore is a permanently-liquefied gel placed inside the blade. As damage occurs in the blade core, the pressurized gel finds and fills the cracks, creating a longer-lasting blade. RenewCore also improves the energy transfer from blade to puck to increase shot power and to improve puck feel.
Bauer improved last-generation’s MPK (Maximum Power Kick) Technology by making it more versatile, thanks to the addition of the Extended Transfer Zone. This connects the taper to the high kick point, allowing energy to transfer faster and more effectively on snapshots, making the new 1S Bauer’s most versatile Supreme stick ever.
Once again, Bauer brings players the tried-and-true combination of Monocomp construction, eLASTech resin, and TeXtreme on the shaft. Monocomp is a weight-reducing and energy-maximizing stick construction method where the shaft and blade are one solid piece. eLASTech helps keep the 1S feeling newer for longer by stopping cracks from spreading once they occur. Finally, TeXtreme is a carbon fiber layup exclusive to Bauer sticks that is 20% lighter and more durable than 12K carbon fiber found on other sticks. It helps create a lightweight, responsive, and durable stick. These features are only found on the 1S model on the 2017 Supreme lineup.
The 2017 Supreme 1S weighs in at 420 grams, which is the same weight as the 2017 Nexus 1N and only 5 grams heavier than the 2016 Vapor 1X.
Renew Core Technology - NEW!
Pressurized gel is placed inside the blade to improve puck feel and shot power. For added durability, the gel seeks and fills cracks as they occur to prolong the life of the blade.
Extended Transfer Zone - NEW!
The extended transfer zone connects the taper to the high kick point, allowing energy to transfer faster and more effectively on snapshots, making the 2017 1S Bauer's most versatile Supreme stick ever.
The 1S underside tactile is strategically placed in order to enhance grip without constricting slide motion. The rib height and spacing provides a natural feel that extends beyond traditional placed Tac-Spiral.
MPK - Maximum Power Kick
All new taper geometry with lower taper initiation for maximum energy output with minimum effort using a stiffer lower shaft that pushes the kick point even higher, creating a stick that is easily loaded - perfect for powerful slapshots and one-timers. This stick is ideal for those who lean heavily into their shots.
Bauer's industry-leading single molding process ensures product and performance consistency. By removing excess material like overlapping layers, resin, and foam waste, the balance of the stick is improved and overall weight is reduced. This results in easier stick loading and improved energy transfer with every shot.
Exclusive to Bauer in hockey, TeXtreme is ultra-lightweight and strong carbon fiber. 20% lighter than conventional carbon, it reduces weight without sacrificing strength.
Proprietary resin system with carbon nanotube reinforcements increases durability by reducing the spread of micro-fractures caused by slashes and puck impacts, extending a stick's "pop-life" to keep it feeling newer, longer.
