    2019 Gear Releases

    Hey JR, I’ve noticed that the 2018 Bauer catalog has not been published. Is it (or the 2019 Bauer catalog) coming at some point, or is that a thing of the past?

    Replacing skate blades

    Where exactly are the nicks, on the skating surface of the runner or along the sides? Can you post a picture?

    Modern Quest 1 skate fit

    If a pair of skates has too much volume for your feet it's akin to a skate being too long or too wide. You may lack heel lock or experience movement of your foot while laced up in the boot. I had too much volume when I tried a pair of Bauer Nexus 8000 skates (2014 model). What I found was that I felt as though I could never get the skates tight enough. It was as though my feet were floating around in them.

    Modern Quest 1 skate fit

    That’s how most do it. Laces loosened up and the tongue pulled out/forward. Then lay a pencil across the eyelets. Ideal fit is for the pencil to be really close or just barely graze your ankle/foot. If the pencil is pushed way off the eyelets you’ll eventually develop lace bite in those skates. However if there’s too much of a gap between your ankle and the pencil it may be an indication that there’s too much volume.

    How long do NHL players use a pair of skates?

    Out of curiosity, what was the longest a player would use the same pair for?
  6. I believe that in the top end Bauer skates that are made of Curv composite it’s ok to stand for the first few minutes of the baking process. That being said I did not stand in my MX3’s when I baked them and they fit like a glove.

    Titanium Curve Composite

    To my knowledge the Ti Curv material was more of a cosmetic change than anything else. I was unaware that the material was structurally different.

    Baking CCM 6092 skates

    Just as an FYI on the temperature, I own a Bauer skate oven. I’ve measured the temperature several times. It takes about 7 minutes to preheat and then it sits right at 220 degrees.

    Supreme Skate Stiffness

    I've heard that Bauer will repair it by replacing the entire piece.

    Supreme Skate Stiffness

    While I do like the one piece injected lacing on my MX3's, I have observed that many pro stock Bauer skates utilize conventional eyelets. It's my understanding that when ordering custom skates if you increase vamping, you forfeit the injected lacing. As much as I like them it's clear that the injected lacing is something many pros wearing Bauer skates manage to do without. Just an observation.

    Supreme Skate Stiffness

    I believe the boot itself is less stiff due to how the Curv material is layered.

    Bake Times

    Thank you JR.

    Bake Times

    Can anyone recommend the appropriate bake time for a pair of Bauer Supreme 7000's? These are all black, which I think is circa 2002 if it matters. Thanks!

    Graf Canada

    I've tried 705's and they fit great everywhere except the heel. After skating for 10-15 minutes the ball of my heels would go completely numb. Can anyone advise how the 755 fits compared to the 705's?

    Bauer X900 Skate issue

    It's one of the things I like on my MX3's. They have the integrated wear pads in that area exactly for that reason.
