Bauer Supreme S27 Ice Skates
The Bauer Supreme S27 ice skates are the lower-mid-range model for the 2018 Supreme skate lineup. They have an anatomical fit and are designed for entry-level hockey players who want an good-quality skate without breaking the bank. The Bauer Supreme S27 is the current-generation version of last generation’s Supreme S160.
The S27s have a 3-D Trueform tech polyurethane quarter package, which is a carryover feature from last generation’s lower-mid-range Supreme S160 model. Despite not being made with high-tech materials, the S27’s quarter package is surprisingly stiff. Players using this model will still get a good amount of foot and ankle support.
The Supreme S27 ice skates come standard with basic TUUK stainless steel runners. The S27 skates utilize the incredible TUUK LightSpeed Edge holders that are found all the way up in the 2S Pro model. These holders have a trigger that can release the steel for instant replacement in the event of a lost edge or damaged runner. Players can also use this feature to easily upgrade their runners to higher-quality LS2, LS3, LS4, or LS5 steels, if desired.
Next, the S27 skates use a more-basic 2-piece 48oz. felt tongue with a high-density metatarsal guard. It has the same general design as the S29 model’s tongue, but with a slightly softer padded region. The metatarsal guard is wide and gives players protection only where needed.
The Bauer S27 skates use standard 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. However, they don’t keep laces tied as tight and may loosen up over the course of each game.
Moving on to the inside of the skates, The S27 skates use a hydrophobic microfiber liner. This helps keeps the foot dry and helps prevent moisture buildup within the skates.
Bauer Supreme skates are best known for their superior ankle wrap and the S27s do just that. The memory foam ankle pads are soft and have very slight, appropriately-placed, indentations for the ankle bones, specifically the lateral and medial malleoli. This allows the S27 skate to wrap around the ankle and leave as little negative space as possible.
The Supreme S27 ice skates come with the FORM-FIT footbed to help keep the foot dry and stabilized inside the skate.
The tendon guard on the S27 skate is stiff and fixed in place. It has very little give and is ideal for players who want support but don’t need anything fancy.
