With one of the most anticipated new lines in goaltending in the recent years, Bauer has brought you one of the most engineered, designed, and technologically advanced line of gear. The 1S glove is packed with new features which strive to change the face of goaltending. The 1S glove features a true one piece cuff for stability and rigidity and has this backed with their Curv Composite material. The Curv in the 1S glove covers the cuff and palm of the glove and gives structural support as well as protective purposes. This gives the glove a phenomenal open shape and will not allow the glove to misshape of breakdown over time. In the palm, the 1S glove also features their Poron XRD material which helps reduce stingers in the palm, but also allows the glove to snap closed for a break in feel. The closure of the glove features a natural 75 degree style which gives the goalie the ability to catch pucks above or past the finger tips. The backhand of the 1S glove is strategically cut to give the goalie ultimate protection when needed, but to increase mobility when wanted. The backhand is made with the Free Flex cuff which protects the back of the hand when covering the puck, but gives the goalie unrestricted movement when shooting or moving about the crease. On the inside of the glove, Bauer continues to use their 37.5 Technology to reduce sweat and heat to keep the hand cool and dry. The 37.5 material is partnered next to the Ax Suede Quattro+ palm which gives the gloves an extremely comfortable feel on the fingers, but also grips when needed. The design is to keep the glove from slipping on the hand during game play. Lastly, Bauer includes their Deep Single T pocket which gives the amazing stability when open, but keeps the pocket shape retained over time. This shape makes for a large catching surface which cradles the puck upon impact. If you are a goalie who is looking for the most innovations within the technology of goaltending and wants Professional-level gear, the Bauer 1S Sr. Goal Glove will not disappoint you!
