Bauer Nexus N2900 gloves are the second-tier model in the Nexus line and will provide players with a similar level of protection and comfort as the top-of-the-line 2N model at a fraction of the price. Bauer’s 2018 Nexus glove line brings players a classic fit style, which means they have a roomy, volume fit in the fingers, backhand, and cuff regions to provide a high range of wrist dexterity for stickhandling. The Nexus fit represents Bauer’s second-most popular fit amongst professional and amateur players.
The biggest differences between the N2900s and last-generations N9000s are the split cuff design, the palm, and the addition of Sanitized material to the liner. The split cuff design allows for improved flex when leaning into shots.
The N2900 palm uses the same AX Suede Quattro palm material - minus the repeating diamond tecture - found on the top-of-the-line 2N gloves. It is soft, sensitive, and provides great puck feel when stickhandling.
The outer shell materials are made of a pro nylon material instead of synthetic leather. In addition, Bauer uses two types of branding application on the N9000 gloves. For instance, the large Bauer logo on the outer cuff is raised and embroidered with the glove’s secondary color providing contrast and a professional, 3-dimensional look and feel. Then, Bauer has a pressed vinyl “Bauer” logo on the inner cuff and "Nexus N2900" branding on the thumbs.
On the outer rolls, Bauer places the prominent Nexus “N” logo above a rubbery, cross-like graphic. This material is purely cosmetic and only provides contrast between the nylon and the logo. Beneath material on the backhand, fingers, and thumb lie double-density foams and polyethylene (PE) inserts for ultimate mobility, comfort, and enhanced, lightweight impact protection.
The Nexus N2900s use Bauer’s patented 2-piece flex lock thumb. The outer padding flexes slightly with thumb movement and the thumb is free to bend within the thumb pocket. When combined with the patented 2-piece segmented finger construction, these gloves give players incredible grip and protection.
Another feature in the N2900 gloves is the THERMO MAX liner with Sanitized material. This hydrophobic liner causes the gloves to stay light and dry during play. Sanitized then prevents odor buildup and keeps the gloves smelling fresh after every game.
