Continuing on the wining combination for Bauer's Vapor family of goal equipment the new Hyperlite 2 series is not one that will disappoint. With new features in the Catcher like Bauer's Defense Cloud Tech, CatchGrip+ and always we have Curv built in to the glove. The matching blocker features the Rebound Boost Core, Connekt+ palm, DCT foam & F1 CURV composite along the side. This JH spec series has a few upgrades to it which include a reinforced Double T, added DCT foam at the palm base.
EXTERNAL MATERIAL & PADDING
Externally the glove has the Catchlite palm stock for great protection and comfort, this helps absorb the shot in the glove allowing the material to keep it in place so you can feel confident with your saves we just added the additional DCT to the palm base for those times where just a bit extra padding is needed.
BREAK ANGLE & POCKET
This glove has a 60 degree break angle that is a more full hand closure making it fingers to base of thumb to imagine. This angle provides both great coverage & mobility with this design and when you're holding your glove at a downward angle will create a large catching surface and can also help with those high shots. Bauer also sees with this angle it flows with the natural shape of the hand providing reduces fatigue & wrist stress over time. The pocket is a double reinforced T that works with that large shape of the glove to provide even better cushion when the puck gets in to the pocket.
STRAPPING & CUFF DESIGN
Keeping you connected to the glove is a fully adjustbale strapping system inside with an improved wrist strap for a more comfortable fit. We still have the full one piece cuff design with added CURV composite for reinforcement.
New for Hyperlite 2 and brought over from the MACH is the SL1D3R external material that is a more durable material to make sure it holds up throughout the season and well in to the playoffs. This material is made from a combination of HDPE that is a type of plastic that's known for how resistant it is to wear and the coating enhances the effect of the HDPE sheet.
Now for those massive rebounds off the blocker we have the Rebound Boost Core that is a special foam designed to allow for better control with your rebounds and where they go, this way you not only get a massive rebound but a more controllable one too and with the addition of CURV to key areas such as the thumb, & fingers this also provides additional protection.
PALM & SIDE PROTECTION
Giving you a good connection to your stick for control we have the Connekt+ palm that shapes to your hand and better connect you to the stick. This palm is brought over from the player side and was introduced on the MACH blocker, this material is designed to hold up through rigorous use giving you a lasting performance & protection. Going along to the sidewall Bauer has added the F1 CURV composite construction that is both lightweight & durable that also provides superb impact protection.
