Bauer Nexus Freeze Pro 2018 Senior Ice Skates
- Hydra Max 2 Liner upgrade better keeps you safe from bacteria buildup
- Black LS3 Steel upgrade digs into the ice with relative ease
- FORM-FIT 2-piece tongue includes metatarsal guard for better protection
The Bauer Nexus Freeze Pro ice skates are a rare and exclusive product made for Discount Hockey. They are an upgraded version of the mid-range Nexus N2900 model with features found in the top-of-the-line 2N model. The Freeze Pro skates will give players a great level of comfort, performance, and durability at a great price.
The key upgrades found exclusively on the Bauer Freeze Pro skates include the HYDRA MAX 2 liner, TUUK LS3+ black carbon-coated stainless steel, FORM-FIT 2-piece 48oz felt tongue with high density reinforced metatarsal guard, and lightweight composite outsole.
The Freeze Pro skates use a 3-D fiber composite quarter package, which makes them a pretty stiff skate.
All-new this year is the LightSpeed 3+ black steel. This is an exclusive feature, which means you can only find it on the Freeze Pro skate model. Players looking to buy this steel aftermarket are out of luck - It is only found on this skate.
LS3+ has a 10-foot radius and is covered in a matte black powder coating which is a very popular look in today's game. It is durable, maintains an edge, and just plain looks nice. It will give players who don't want to shell out $950 for skates like the Supreme 2S Pros that come with with LS5 carbon steel an opportunity to have that same look at a more-affordable price.
Next, the upgraded 2-piece 48oz FORM-FIT felt tongue with high density reinforced metatarsal guard is just as thick as the Supreme 2S' tongue, but provides slightly less ankle wrap. The wide metatarsal guard is stiff - yet cushioned - to give players protection exactly where they need it.
These use standard, non-locking, textured eyelets. This is a pro-preferred specification, so players who have used pro stock skates or who don't like how tight the T-shaped eyelets on top-of-the-line Bauer skates feel will definitely see this as an improvement.
The upgraded lightweight composite outsole is very stiff and provides a similar amount of support as other top-tier Bauer skates - just without ventilation. It is the same outsole found on the top-of-the-line 2N model.
Moving on to the inside of the skates, the Freeze Pro skates are upgraded to have the HYDRAMAX2 liner with black wear patches (found on the Supreme 2S Pro model) where it makes contact with the tongue. These are soft, prevent abrasion, and provide a good amount of comfort.
Bauer Nexus skates have always had a high-volume fit and the Freeze Pros are no different. The top of the forefoot has plenty of space, making these perfect for players who have experienced pain on the top of the foot in other skates.
The Freeze Pro skates use the FORM-FIT footbed. It is designed to keep the foot dry and stabilized within the boot. This footbed is removable, so players can easily swap it out for SpeedPlates, Superfeet, or any other model of their choice.
