The Bauer Nexus 1N Skate is the most explosive skate from any Nexus or FlexLite family to date. For the first time in Nexus, Bauer utilized their signature one-piece lacing system that not only improves forward flex by 33% but it also improves stability and energy transfer through each stride.
Internally, the 1N follows suit by showcasing the 37.5 polyester liner. The 37.5 microparticles are integrated into the polyester and they work to not only wick away moisture, but it actually uses a player's body heat to evaporate it too! Also on the liner are high-frequency wear pads and Comfort Edge wraps that alleviate high ankle abrasion and significantly improves the liner's overall lifespan.
Carrying over from the previous 8000 is the full Curv composite quarter package that provides some of the best stiffness on the market. Due to the unique design of the composite, it is also one of most lightest and heatmoldable materials around. Aiding in comfort and weight reduction is the 52 oz & 40 oz hybrid black felt tongue. Unlike last year's 8000, the 1N features a Curv composite metatarsal guard instead of plastic.
Down below, the Bauer Nexus 1N skate has a full composite outsole that is vented to aid in moisture management. Sitting just on top of the outsole (and inside of the boot) is the revolutionary SpeedPlate foot bed. Showcasing the only orthin-resin technology on the market, the hard plastic-like footbed can be heatmolded just like a boot. This means players now get a true 360 degree custom fit, not just boot side walls and tongue molding. With this exclusive technology, the SpeedPlate improves balance, energy transfer, arch support and heel lock like no other footbed on the market.
