<p>"The SUPREME TOTALONE is the result of technological advancements in design, materials and manufacturing," said <span class="xn-person">Keith Duffy</span>, <span class="xn-person">Sr. Product Line Manager</span>, Bauer Hockey. "The SUPREME TOTALONE reaffirms Bauer's commitment to elite players and the high-performance skates they depend on."</p>
<p/>
<p>Utilizing a patented manufacturing process, the SUPREME TOTALONE features anatomically correct Alive Composite in the upper and insole to provide the utmost in efficiency and responsiveness - with a weight below 700 grams. The skate can be heated and customized around the ankle and heel, providing a true 360-degree fit for any foot shape.</p>
<p/>
<p>"We've changed the way skates are made with the SUPREME TOTALONE - the process to build it didn't exist before," said <span class="xn-person">Chris Langevin</span>, Director, Advanced Development, Bauer Hockey. "We came up with an idea to develop a true, anatomically correct fit, but there was no machine out there that could create what we envisioned - so we built the machine."</p>
<p/>
<p>In addition to the revolutionary manufacturing process and unprecedented fit, the SUPREME TOTALONE also features the Reflex Tongue, the first-ever customizable tongue that allows players to customize the flex and performance of the tongue for the utmost in personalization. The skate comes with three different composite tongue inserts (Mid, Stiff, X-Stiff) that can be interchanged based on player preference. The Reflex Tongue and the Alive Composite combined with technological enhancements within the skate's tendon guard, create a slingshot effect that propels players forward, especially in the all-important first stride.</p>
<p/>
<p>"Everyone knows that the first step in hockey is crucial and the combination of the Reflex Tongue, the Alive Composite material and the tendon guard all working together creates a faster, more powerful first step," Duffy said. "You can literally feel the skate snap you forward with every stride."</p>
<p/>
<p>The SUPREME TOTALONE also features TUUK LS Fusion - Bauer's lightest and most advanced runner in the company's history. The revolutionary runner design fuses the strength and performance of Bauer's elite stainless steel with high-grade aluminum to reduce weight by 27 percent while delivering increased speed and power. Rounding out the features of the SUPREME TOTALONE skate is Total Edge Comfort, a padded overlay located high on the ankle to alleviate abrasions during the break-in period. Once only available as a custom option for elite NHL players, Total Edge Comfort is now available on every pair of SUPREME TOTALONE skates.</p>
<p/>
<p>The BAUER SUPREME TOTALONE skates will be available at retail locations throughout <span class="xn-location">Canada</span> and the <span class="xn-location">United States</span> on <span class="xn-chron">April 15</span>.</p>
