The all-new 2023 Bauer Supreme protective line is developed for players who like their gear to fit close to the body and are looking for optimal mobility. A major upgrade Bauer made to the 3rd price point shin guard is the X-Flex Shield shin cap with a hinged flex to optimize mobility.
Key Upgrades: X-Flex Shield Shin Cap.
Protection: Molded PE Insert, HD Foam, X-Flex Shield
Liner: Thermo Max
Adjustability: Hinge Flex
Strapping System: Comfort Lock Strap
The M3 model includes some similar features to the higher-level M5 Pro, including an anatomical design for an enhanced overall fit. Bauer’s anatomical construction and ErgoDynamic Lab kneecap provides a deep and natural, close-to-the-body fit to promote power with every movement.
To further enhance your skating stride, Bauer included the X-Flex Shield shin cap with a hinged flex where the shin guard meets the tongue of the skate. The hinge portion is engineered to move with you without any restrictions.
For increased protection, Bauer includes some trusted technologies throughout the M3 shin guards. In the knee wing and thigh protector, Bauer uses HD foam for good coverage and protection at the top of the shin guard. For the calf guard, molded PE provides quality impact resistance against blocked shots and slashes.
The M3 shin guard includes a Comfort Lock strap at the top and a calf strap to secure the shin guard to your leg, maximizing its protective and performance benefits.
The interior of the Supreme M3 includes a removeable comfort liner and a Thermo Max Sublimated lining to keep the shin guards light while you play, and to help them dry out in between on-ice sessions.
Every player, regardless of level, can upgrade to top-end equipment like the MACH shin guards if they are looking for high-end protection, comfort, and mobility. But if you’re a weekly player or new to the game and looking for a quality option at a lower price point, the Supreme M3 shin guards are a great choice.
