Bauer OD1N

December 19th, 2013 Chris Comments off

On Thursday, December 19th, Bauer held a press conference in Chicago with a revolutionary announcement. Instead of traveling to Chicago (which would have been awesome) IW watched the webcast from the comfort of sunny San Luis Obispo, CA.  This blog will give you a quick rundown of the game changing technology.

Named after the Norse god of war and the Russian word for the number one, the Bauer OD1N lineup strives to elevate an athlete’s full potential while improving its level of protection. The lineup presents gear that is both incredibly lightweight, and tunable to each individual athlete’s fits and preferences. Bauer’s testing crew consists of the cream of the NHL crop: Nicklas Backstrom, Jonathon Toews, Patrick Kane, Henrik Lundqvist, Claude Giroux, and Alex Ovechkin. Let’s take a look at the new equipment.

Player Skates

The new Bauer OD1N hockey skates shed 0.5 lbs from previous skates. While this may not seem like a large decrease, it actually is and makes a huge difference in gameplay. When you remove 226 grams at a time where top-of-the-line skates only weigh 800-1000 grams, we’re talking about a monumental difference. This translates into 1000 less pounds lifted over the course of a normal hockey game. Imagine how fresh your legs will feel going into OT!

Ladies and Gentlemen, the new 2013 Bauer is available to be purchased and shipped as of today! There is a ton of new and exciting gear for both players and goalies.

For players, we have a whole new line of Supreme protective gear; including shin guards, elbow pads, shoulder pads, ice pants (adaptable core) and gloves. For Nexus, we see new gloves that took over the 2012 4-Roll line as well as new line of ice pants that took over last year’s Supreme Pants. The first helmet of the new IMS helmets (Impact Management System) is released as well, called the IMS 9.0. Last and not least for players, the much anticipated new Vapor Skate Line including the APX2 has arrived as well.

For goalies, we have a re-introduction of the well-known Reactor line that includes catchers, blockers, sticks, ice skates, and leg pads. For facial protection, goalies get a new line of masks known as the Concept Line.

All of these great products will be available at Inline and Ice Warehouse, be sure to stop by and be one of the first ones with this new gear!
