Brand new for 2018, Bauer has continued their revolutionary line and brought out the new Bauer Supreme 2S Pro Senior Goalie Pants. The 2S Pro Senior pants will feature new NHL spec sizing and protection throughout making the Supreme line of equipment better than before.
Starting with the biggest change from its predecessors, the 2S Pro pant features fully rounded NHL legal thigh protection. This thigh protection is completely rounded to achieve a seamless integration against the pads while going in to the butterfly. Also, the thigh protection will be stiffer to offer more protection with the tight fit. Throughout, there is Powerlite construction which will keep the pants incredibly light while giving the protection elite level players need.
Moving to the hips and spine, Bauer’s 2S Pro pant features Poron XRD padding on the hip floaters to allow for ultimate protection. Underneath, you will still find HD foams to give you the confidence you need when blocking pucks. On the spine, Bauer utilizes Vent Armor form for a lightweight and protective design.
Additionally, the Supreme 2S Pro pant has an adjustable design where the top half of the pant can disconnect from the bottom portion. This design allows for goaltenders to make their pants shorter or longer depending on their height. The adjustments can be found with two Velcro portions on each side of the hip, as well as 3 rivet adjustments on the front hip and spine. Setting the pant at the higher portion will extend the length, while keeping it at the bottom setting will make the pants shorter.
Internally, 2S pants will come with a unique internal belt system in which the internal belt wraps through the front of the pant to give the goalie a tight fit on the body without losing all coverage. Underneath of the front groin padding, there is an elastic closure due to NHL specifications. Lining the pants is Bauer’s proprietary 37.5 Liner to move moisture away from the body and speed up the drying process.
