Bauer Supreme 2S Ice Skates
The Bauer Supreme 2S ice skates are the second-tier model for the 2018 Supreme skate lineup. They have an anatomical fit and are designed for elite-level hockey players who want a high-end skate at a more affordable price point. The Bauer Supreme 2S is the current-generation version of last generation’s Supreme S190.
The key upgrades found on the Bauer 2S skates include the new Reflex tongue and the lightweight composite outsole.
The 3-D lasted Curv® composite quarter package is carried over from last-generation’s Supreme 1S and S190 models, making the 2S a very stiff skate. Curv® is very lightweight yet protective, so players feet will stay protected when blocking shots.
The Supreme 2S ice skates come standard with TUUK LS3 stainless steel runners. These high-grade runners have a polished finish for increased edge retention. The 2S skates still utilize TUUK LightSpeed Edge holders that can release the steel for instant replacement in the event of a lost edge or damaged runner. Players can use this feature to easily upgrade their runners to the new LS5 carbon-coated steel, if desired.
Next, the Reflex tongue makes its debut on the 2S skates. This 3-piece 48oz. tongue with metatarsal guards is thinner and much more flexible than the 2S Pro’s. The metatarsal guard is stiff and gives players protection only where needed.
The Bauer 2S skates use pro-preferred, standard brass eyelets. These are much easier to thread and lace up than the locking eyelets found on the 2S Pros and other top-of-the-line Bauer skates. Plus, they are incredibly durable. However, they don’t keep laces tied as tight and may loosen up over the course of each game.
The lightweight composite outsole is very stiff and provides a similar amount of support as the top-tier 2S Pros - just without ventilation.
Moving on to the inside of the skates, The LOCK-FIT liner is a feature that originally debuted on the 2017 Vapor X800 skates and is now found on the Supreme 2S skates. This high-friction liner keeps the foot dryer and kept in place better than a standard microfiber liner, resulting in a more efficient skating stride. The 2S is the only Supreme skate model to have the LOCK-FIT liner.
Bauer Supreme skates are best known for their superior ankle wrap and the 2Ss deliver. The memory foam ankle pads are soft and have appropriately-placed indentations for the ankle bones, specifically the lateral and medial malleoli. This allows the 2S skate to completely wrap around the ankle and leave zero negative space.
The Supreme 2S ice skates come with the LOCK-FIT footbed, which uses the same concept as the LOCK-FIT liner to keep the foot dry and stabilized inside the skate.
The tendon guard on the 2S is quite stiff but still flexible. This design allows the tendon guard to be responsive while staying comfortable, thanks to the cushioned liner on the inside.
