It’s official, Bauer will make just one line of goalie skates. They’re taking the Ultrasonic and Vapor lines and cramming them into one, to make a new skate they’ll call the Bauer PRO.

We were one of the first to get our hands on a pair of Bauer PRO Goalie Skates and have been testing them throughout the summer. Honestly, these skates are out of the park. Bauer will reign as one of the top goalie skate manufacturers, and these skates could very well take over CCM as the goalie skate of the year.

The Bauer PRO goalie skate will be followed by the Bauer Konekt goalie skate.

Reasons why you shouldn’t buy the Bauer Pro goalie skate

We’ve been using the skates for 3 months as of this most recent update. One of the biggest downsides we’ve experienced so far is that the toe of the boot has completely cracked. As a result, this will no longer be the top goalie skate for this year. In our experience with support, they would not honor the warranty with the product, which was highly disappointing.

 

Are the Bauer Pro Goalie Skates worth the investment?

Easy for us to say, as we test every major piece of goalie gear released, but yes. The Bauer Pro Goalie Skates are easily one of the top two goalie skates on the market. Again, the major downfall of these skates is the cracking we found in the toe, and the companies unwillingness to warranty the product. This is definitely a concern, as these skates were worn for just 3 months in our on-ice testing.

Here’s how the Bauer Pro goalie skates rated in our on ice testing.

Rating Categories Bauer Pro
Comfort 10/10
Protection 10/10
Attack Angle 10/10
Break In Time 7/10
Longevity 1/10
Versatility (for Different Foot Types) 9/10
Breathability 8/10
Price 7/10
Bauer Pro Goalie Skates

Bauer PRO Goalie Skates Review, worth the money? 

Despite the fact that the toe of our pair of testing skates cracked after just 3 months, these are going to be one of the most comfortable pairs of goalie skates you’ll ever wear. Bauer makes a goalie skate that is consistently in the top three in terms of popularity both at the professional and amateur levels.

Between CCM, Bauer, and TRUE, if you buy one of these skates you’re getting a skate that will stand the test of time. With Bauer, despite what some say about the quality of their pads, you’re buying a skate that will last many years. In fact, we’ve been wearing a pair of Bauer 2S pro goalie skates since they were first released several years ago.

The video review below details the new features of the Bauer Pro Goalie Skates.

Here’s what’s new with the Bauer PRO Goalie Skates

  • Stanceflex Pro, designed to get the goalie closer than ever before to the ice surface.
  • Redesigned comfort collar, lowered to gently support the athletes ankle
  • Agility skate runner profile, skate blade tilted forward to maximize goalies attach position

How to fit the Bauer Pro Goalie Skate

If you’re not sure on how to size goalie skates, check out our additional reading on the subject before making a purchase, if you decide to buy these skates.

There are two customizations you must choose when buying Bauer goalie skates

  1. Skate Size
  2. FIT Category

Skate Size

This one’s obvious. Bauer offers the PRO line in sizes 7 to 12 with 11 different options.

FIT Category

There are three different options for choosing your FIT category.

  • FIT 1, narrow.
  • FIT 2, average.
  • FIT 3, wide.

For most goalies, FIT 2 will work just fine. In our case, I’ve got pretty wide feet, so I chose the FIT 3 wide. Coming from a stock Bauer 2S skate to the Bauer PRO, I noticed a huge difference in the FIT 3.

Reasons why you shouldn’t buy the Bauer PRO Goalie Skates

My favorite part of every Bauer goalie skate deep dive. There are really no reasons to NOT buy a pair of these skates if you’re in the market.

Here’s a look at every goalie skate in the Bauer Pro Line

As every manufacturer does, and Bauer is no different, there are multiple different price points for this series.

Bauer PRO Goalie Skate

First and most expensive, the Bauer Pro Goalie Skate. We’ve covered it extensively here, so I don’t think it’s worth “beating a dead horse” over. The Bauer PRO goalie skate will get you from Point A to Point B in the goalie skate equivalent of a brand new Bentley. These skates are the real deal. Possibly the most comfortable goalie skate on the market.
