The 2S Pro blocker starts off with a crisp digitally printed graphic to increase blocking surface area. With the reduction of stitches and graphic, the weight is also reduced and gives the blocker a lightweight feel on the back of the hand. Much like the 2S leg pads, the blocker will also feature a new C.O.R.TECH – ST skin to provide better durability over time.
On the board itself, it is created with HD foams topped with Bauer’s Curv Composite material to help drive pucks hard and away from the body, ultimately giving the goalie the advantage in rebound control and creating more time for recovery. Moving through to the back of the blocker, the blocker is lined with a cream Nash for a soft feel and comfortable grip. New, the palm is a ventilated Nash Pro palm with XRD reinforcements in the fingers to help protect the goalie from any potential pucks squeaking through.
Building off of the success of the previous generation, the sidewall is still a large rigid piece designed to help seal the body and provide the goalie with a solid blocking surface between the blocker and the body. This sidewall is met with large reinforcements around the thumb and index finger to create a solid seal against the goalies stick.
Moving through to the wrist area, the 2S pro will feature Bauer’s Free Flex design with Vent Armor foam to give the goalie completely uninhibited wrist mobility to make any save. Combining the Vent Armor and the 37.5 liner technology, goaltenders will notice a reduction in heat and sweat throughout game play.
