Brand new for 2018, Bauer has continued their revolutionary line and brought out the new Bauer Supreme S27 Junior Goalie Glove. The S27 Glove will feature tweaks in the build process, construction and overall durability to make the Supreme line of equipment better than before.
The S27 Junior Glove starts off with crisp digitally printed accents and a sewn graphic. With the reduction of stitches and graphic, the weight is also reduced and gives the glove a lightweight feel on the hand. Much like the S27 leg pads, the glove will also feature standard synthetic leather.
Starting with the cuff, the S27 Junior will feature a solid 1-piece cuff to help any negative flex in the cuff and wrist, giving the goalie a clean blocking surface when they need to squeeze in tight. In the palm, there will be a game ready palm to give the goalie an easier closure right out of the box. Adding to the perimeter, there are specific MD foam reinforcements added to give extra protection. For the closure of the glove, the S27 Junior will feature a 75 degree style closure which will give the goalie the ability to catch the pucks above or past the finger tips.
Moving to the back of the glove, the S27 Junior has redesigned padding to help create strategic cuts to make the glove closure feel more natural. This Free Flex backside starts across the back of the finger tips and moves all the way up through the wrist which will give the goalie full range of movement to get their hand in position to make key saves. Lined across the hand is a classic Nash liner which will give the goalie more grip during their session.
New for the S27 Junior is a Double T build which adds more lacing in to the pocket of the glove. With more lace being added, it reduces the amount of plastics and leathers and adds more soft materials to help retain pucks that enter the pocket. This design is met with specific lacing colors to match the main graphic on the glove.
If you are an entry-level goalie who is looking for key upgrades in durability, easier full hand closure with specific reinforced protection and palm comfort, the Bauer Supreme S27 Junior Goalie Glove will be for you.
