Brand new for 2020, Bauer has continued their revolutionary line and brought out the new Bauer Supreme 3S Senior Goalie Glove. The 3S Glove will feature brand new designs and construction to make it the most broken-in and comfortable glove Bauer has ever created.
The 3S Glove starts off with a crisp digitally printed graphic to increase a clean surface area. With the reduction of stitches and graphic, the weight is also reduced and gives the glove a lightweight feel on the hand. Much like the 3S leg pads, the glove will also feature a new CORTech ST skin to provide better durability over time.
Starting with the cuff, the 3S will feature a solid 1-piece cuff to help any negative flex in the cuff and wrist, giving the goalie a clean blocking surface when they need to squeeze in tight. In the Catchlite palm, there will be CURV composite to reduce the number of stingers and increase protection if a puck is caught in the palm. Adding to the perimeter, there is CURV Composites to give more protection and help retain the shape of the glove over time. For the closure of the glove, the 3S will feature a 75-degree style closure which will give the goalie the ability to catch the pucks above or past the fingertips.
Moving to the back of the glove, the 3S has redesigned padding to help create strategic cuts to make the glove closure feel more natural. This Free Flex backside starts across the back of the fingertips and moves all the way up through the wrist which will give the goalie full range of movement to get their hand in position to make key saves. Bauer has lined the inside of the glove with an Ivory Nash liner to give the goaltender a comfortable and reliable material while catching pucks.
Bauer’s 3S glove features a thinned out Double T-Spine which adds more lacing in to the pocket of the glove. With more lace being added, it reduces the amount of plastics and materials to help retain pucks that enter the pocket. This Double T-Spine has a beautiful skate lace pocket to retain pucks and keep a soft catch over the lifespan of the glove.
Compared to the Supreme 3S glove, the UltraSonic will feature higher quality materials both internally and externally that will allow the glove to have better durability and a lighter weight.
If you are an intermediate-level goalie who is looking for a reliable glove with key upgrades and details specifically geared toward a butterfly style goaltender, the Bauer Supreme 3S Senior Goalie Glove will be for you.
