Bauer Supreme Ignite Pro Ice Skates (2018)
The Bauer Supreme Ignite Pro ice skates are a rare and exclusive product made for Sports Excellence stores like Discount Hockey. They are an upgraded version of the third-tier Supreme S29 model with features found in the second-tier 2S model. The Ignite Pro skates will give players a great level of comfort, performance, and durability at a great price.
The 2018 Supreme skate line features new graphics, using mostly charcoal grey for the boot and reflective gold accents near the heel, eyelets, and ankles. This is a very clean design compared to last generation’s, which used lots of lines on top of a lighter grey quarter package. These Ignite Pro skates still have those lines or accents but they are much subtler on the darker boot.
The key upgrades found exclusively on the Bauer Ignite Pro skates include the Reflex tongue with injected metatarsal guard, TUUK LS2+ black carbon-coated stainless steel, and HYDRAMAX liner with wear patches.
The Ignite Pro skates use a 3-D fiber composite quarter package, which makes the Ignite Pro a stiff skate.
All-new this year is the LightSpeed 2+ black steel. This is a Sports Excellence exclusive, which means you can only find it on the Ignite Pro skate model. Players looking to buy this steel “aftermarket” are out of luck - It is only found on this skate.
LS2+ has a 9-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’ll give players who don’t want to shell out $950 for the 2S Pro skates with LS5 carbon an opportunity to have that same look at a more-affordable price.
Next, the 3-piece 48oz. Reflex tongue with metatarsal guards feels more protective, but just as thick, as 2016’s S180 tongue. At the same time, it feels about as protective as last generation’s S190 tongue, but much softer. So, it’ll feel a hybrid between the S180 and S190 tongue from 2016.
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.
Moving on to the inside of the skates, the Ignite Pro skates are upgraded to have the HYDRAMAX liner with black wear patches (found on the 2S Pro model) where it makes contact with the tongue. These are soft, prevent abrasion, and provide a good amount of comfort.
Bauer Supreme skates are best known for their superior ankle wrap and the Ignite Pros deliver. The memory foam ankle pads are thick and have appropriately-placed indentations for the ankle bones, specifically the lateral and medial malleoli. This allows the Ignite Pros to completely wrap around the ankle and leave zero negative space.
The Ignite Pro skates use the FORM-FIT+ with stabilizer grip and ventilation. It is designed with a rubbery grip material on the arch and around the heel that keeps 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.
