Later this year, Bauer will be introducing the Bauer Nexus 7000 skates to the public. The Nexus 7000 skates will sit at a price point just below the Nexus 8000 skates, but could be exactly what some of you are looking for in a skate.
In the quarter package, the Bauer Nexus 7000 skates will utilize an ultra lightweight tech mesh with integrated speed flex channels. The tech mesh is still a popular material for skates, and can be a great alternative to those who do not like the Curv composite quarter packages found on many of Bauer’s high end skates.
The Nexus 7000 skates are going to provide great heel support as well with Bauer’s patented pro-integrated anatomical heel/ankle support technology. On the front of the skate, you’ll find a molded anatomical 3-piece felt tongue with molded metatarsal guard. This thick felt tongue will not only be extremely comfortable, but will provide additional protection as well.
Moving inside the boot, Bauer has used their hydra max mesh liner to help wick moisture away from your feet, and keep them dry all game long. Additionally, you’ll get Bauer’s anaform foam ankle pads on the Nexus 7000 skates, making for a very comfortable fit. Beneath your foot you’ll have a form-fit+ footbed, with grip, moisture management, and a heel stabilizer.
Below the foot, you will find a full composite outsole for incredible energy transfer in every stride. You’ll also get the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. With the Bauer Nexus 7000 skates you will find Bauer utilized a Tuuk LS3 stainless steel runner for optimal performance.
The Bauer Nexus 7000 skates are expected to hit retail store shelves in late spring or early summer. When they become available, you can visit our friends at IceWarehouse.com and grab a pair for about $700, although the price will be confirmed when they release.
