Bauer MX3 Skate

As a hockey gear junkie there are few things more exciting than a Bauer skate release. Luckily, 2014 brings us two; the first is the newest edition of the Supreme line, the TotalOne MX3 skate. Bauer’s focus was to increase and improve players’ range of motion.  By increasing range of motion players are able to generate more power in their strides so that less energy is wasted. To create additional comfort and responsiveness, Bauer also worked to eliminate as much negative space in the boot of the MX3 skate as possible.

Creating The Ideal Composite Stick

Every day it seems to be getting more difficult to find the perfect composite stick. With so many colors, patterns, features and new technologies to choose from, the process can get confusing quickly. Some questions we found customers asking us were “How do I know what features are important to me?” and “Which stick is going to help me improve my game?” as well as “What am I really getting in exchange for putting down all this cash?”.
