The Bauer Supreme S170 hockey stick comes into the next installment of Bauer’s Supreme series line as a stick ideal for the power player that loves to unload bombs. This stick features a new flex profile called Maximum Power Kick or MPK for short. With a lower taper integration, an amplified catapult effect is created to allow the S170 to efficiently store and release energy. It works by making the taper stiffer with a new high strength fiber reinforcement, this stiffer lower portion of the shaft combined with a softer upper to the shaft is what pushes the kick point to be even higher which helps the stick to easily load-perfect for providing powerful slap shots and one-timers.
The S170 uses a more traditional fused construction made with a premium basket weave composite construction. It also features a dual density foam core and the same great blade wrap as the S180, which features BimaX composite, a material that is stronger in tensile strength
