2017 Bauer Supreme S160 Stick
The 2017 Bauer Supreme S160 stick is the entry-level model in the Supreme line and is ideal for recreational 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 improved on the 2016 Supreme S160 stick by adding Bridgecore blade technology to the 2017 model. BridgeCore is a feature formerly called Exo-Rim, which was found on Easton’s top-of-the-line Stealth CX model in 2015. It brings players a blade with a stiff outer edge for excellent shooting power and a carbon “bridge” in the middle for improved puck feel.
The S160 uses a mix of carbon fiber and fiberglass on the shaft, which is the same material found on all three of Bauer’s entry-level sticks. The blade on the S160 is wrapped in a carbon basket weave made of overlapping unidirectional (straight) carbon fiber that offer a solid balance of durability and playability.
The S160 uses R1 resin in the carbon fibers to add durability and offer reliable results shot after shot.
The 2017 Supreme S160 weighs in at 535 grams, which is the exact same weight as both the 2017 Nexus N6000 and the 2016 Vapor X600.

A carbon bridge is added down the middle of the blade for improved stability and puck control.
