New for the 2019/2020 season is Bauer’s Nexus 2N Pro Shadow Series Griptac Hockey Stick! The 2N Pro features custom graphics while maintaining the widely-successful Nexus 2N Pro stick construction.
Starting with the construction of the shaft, the 2N Pro Hockey Stick features Bauer’s Monocomp Technology. This is a one-piece molding process that provides players with ultimate consistency when shooting, passing, and stickhandling.
The shaft is made of Bauer’s ever-popular TeXtreme carbon fiber material. Not only is this patented material 20% lighter, but it is even more durable! This is partnered with the Duraflex resin system, which is a substance on the interior of the shaft that provides added strength and durability.
The Nexus line of sticks are known for their mid-kick points allowing for a great balance of release speed and power, and the 2N Pro Hockey Stick encapsulates this perfectly. The 2N Pro Hockey Stick features Bauer’s Sweet-Spot-Technology, which gives players the option to easily fire off a quick snapshot from the hashmarks or launch a powerful slapshot from the blue line.
This flex profile goes hand in hand with the 2N Pro Hockey Stick’s completely revamped blade, known as the R-LITE blade. This blade is based off the 1X Lite blade, but for the 2N Pro, Bauer added a reinforced layer between the core of the blade and the outer carbon fiber. This provides greatly enhanced puck feel on your stick and increases blade durability without sacrificing the lightweight feel.
This is paired with Bauer’s Advanced Carbon Layering (ACL) technology in the blade. This is a strategic placement of carbon fiber materials within the blade that provide a strong and durable blade. For the 2N Pro Hockey Stick, these materials have been made thinner, resulting in faster snap shot and slap shot releases, without sacrificing durability.
