Back heel "Lundqvist" style loop for bottom strap attachment
New for 2016, the Supreme S170 features several of the same great design and performance characteristics that you'll find the Supreme 1S goal skate.
The Supreme S170 skate has been redesigned for 2016 with it’s first cowling-less boot. The S170 skate features a TPR outsole to reduce weight and increase stiffness.
A goalie specific toe cap has been added to provide increased protection through added thickness and stiffness. This feature is a modern upgrade over the previous cowling that was on its predecessor, the One.7.
The 2016 S170 is equipped with an asymmetric design to allow for better pushes from any stance. A shorter cut on the lateral side relieves pressure and allows a deeper stance while the taller cut on the medial side maintains protection and support. The tongue also features an asymmetric shape to increase comfort while the goalie is in their stance. The asymmetric design on the new Supreme skates specifically enhances the goalie’s ability to move around the crease.
The revolutionary VERTEXX Edge holder is designed and developed to provide a greater attack angle by increasing overall skate height by 5mm and reducing traditional cowling material. The benefit to the goalie is a 10% better attack angle than Bauer’s original VERTEXX cowling for quicker and harder pushes while using less energy. The VERTEXX EDGE holder also features an innovative trigger system that allows goalies to change steel within seconds. The Supreme S170 also features elite grade LS1G steel that maximizes energy transfer and has superior surface finish for a cleaner and stronger sharpening edge.
The Supreme S170 skate offers both a high level protection with a fresh modern look that will have any goalie stopping the competition in style.
