2017 Bauer Supreme S170 Stick
The 2017 Bauer Supreme S170 stick is the lower-mid-range model in the Supreme line and is ideal for performance-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 improved on the 2016 Supreme S170 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. Bauer also brought back the MPK (Maximum Power Kick) to the S170, which is designed to give players their hardest shot possible.
The S170 uses a carbon basket weave on the shaft, which is the same material found on all three of Bauer’s lower-mid-range sticks. The carbon basket weave is made of overlapping unidirectional (straight) carbon fiber that offer a solid balance of durability and playability. Then, the same Bimax 3K carbon blade wrap found on the S180 gives the S170 that extra bit of strength to provide hard, accurate shots.
The S170 uses R2 resin in the carbon fibers to add durability without sacrificing performance.
The 2017 Supreme S170 weighs in at 475 grams, which is the exact same weight as both the 2017 Nexus N7000 and the 2016 Vapor X700.
Bridge Core Technology - NEW!
A carbon bridge is added down the middle of the blade for improved stability and puck control.
BIMAX® 3K Carbon Blade Wrap
Interlocking 3K carbon for added strength.
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.
Shaft and blade are fused together.
Carbon Basket Weave
Overlapping unidirectional (straight) carbon fiber that offers a balance of durability and playability.
Consistent resin flow throughout the stick offers added durability without sacrificing performance.
