Step out of your 1000s and upgrade to the revamped Nexus 8000 Ice Skates by Bauer. Replacing the 1000s as the top of the line for the Nexus family, the 8000s take on a whole new look without sacrificing their true meaning of meeting tradition with technology.
The Nexus 8000s are built with Anaform Fit technology that now combines the traditional “Deep-V” heel fit in Bauer’s proprietary 3-D lasted and Curv Composite construction. The “Deep-V” heel fit locks your heel in place within the skate to ensure the skate reacts to your every movement -- the way the hockey gods intended.
Further, as the most widely used assembly throughout the games highest level, the “Deep-V”, 3-D, and Curv Composite construction are the most anatomically correct insole out there for you to experience quicker take-off speed, increased power, and maximum comfort.
Unique to the Nexus 8000 is the "Classic" ultra-thick, pro-felt tongue. This ultra-thick two-piece pro felt tongue has a molded metatarsal guard that provides maximum comfort and protection from lace bite, as well as those random pucks you might take.
On the inside, the 8000s rep a Hydra-Max Liner, the moisture-wicking and abrasion-resistant liner with integrated comfort wrap, so that your feet are still happy even after hours of play. Plus add the Total Edge comfort pads that minimize wear and tear around the tops of the ankles keep you and your skates happy for an extended amoutn of time.
Putting it all to the ice is a combination of technologies all working in unison. From the boot down, you’ll find a composite outsole that shifts more energy to the ice. The TUUK Lightspeed Edge holder is time tested, reliable, and takes full responsibility for connecting you to the ice with pride. Rounding out the TUUK is the LS Fusion Runner that combines stainless steel with high-grade aluminum to yield a full 27 percent weight savings versus standard runners.
