Bauer Supreme S29 Ice Skates
The Bauer Supreme S29 ice skates are the mid-range model for the 2018 Supreme skate lineup. They have an anatomical fit and are designed for intermediate-level hockey players who want a good-quality skate without breaking the bank. The Bauer Supreme S29 is the current-generation version of last generation’s Supreme S170.
The S29s have a new 3-D fiber composite+ quarter package, which is an upgrade from the Supreme S170 model. The new quarter package material is much stiffer, so players using the Supreme S29 skates will get a more supportive boot than other mid-range skates on the market.
The Supreme S29 ice skates come standard with TUUK LS1 stainless steel runners. These runners have a polished finish for good edge retention. The S29 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 higher-quality LS2, LS3, LS4, or LS5 steels, if desired.
Next, the S29 skates use a more-basic 2-piece 48oz. felt tongue with a high-density reinforced metatarsal guard. It is the same thickness as the 2S’s tongue, but provides slightly less ankle wrap. The metatarsal guard is stiff, wide, and gives players protection only where needed.
The Bauer S29 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 S29 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 S29s still compete with the higher-end models. The memory foam ankle pads are soft and have slight, appropriately-placed, indentations for the ankle bones, specifically the lateral and medial malleoli. This allows the S29 skate to wrap around the ankle and leave little negative space.
The Supreme S29 ice skates come with the FORM-FIT+ footbed with stabilizer grip and ventilation. This helps keep the foot dry and stabilized inside the skate.
The tendon guard on the S29 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.
