Without a doubt the most in demand item for the 2020-2021 season is full, clear face shield (or “fishbowl”). While these have been around for decades, the renewed interest have made these hard to come by. We’ve got fishbowl from both Bauer and CCM in stock right now. While we have more on the way, don’t delay! As the season gets closer, these will become harder and harder to find!
Now more than ever, choosing the proper hockey helmet is paramount in importance. How the helmet fits your head and face is as important as the “nuts and bolts” of the helmet itself. Here are our top recommendation (in no particular order)
The newest version of the CCM Tacks skates are available now. Highlighted by the flagship AS3 Pro, the Tacks line is cut wide in the toe and more contoured around the heel. Tacks are perfect for someone with a normal cut foot, who is looking for a more contoured shape around the foot. Similar fit to the Bauer Supreme.
The new Bauer Supreme skates have arrives. The line, characterized as for players who value straight away speed and acceleration, is also the first to fully integrate the new Bauer Science Of Fit System as well as the first line to introduce Intermediate skates.

The centerpiece of the new line is the new Supreme Ultrasonic. The Supreme Ultrasonic is the ultimate performance skate for the elite player, designed to maximize power and control. A 3D Lasted Carbon Curv composite boot stiffens the lower portion of the boot, allowing every push to build towards maximum energy transfer and faster straight line speed. Additionally, a power boot cut offers an increased wrap for optimal foot stability and support. It also features the Tuuk LS Pulse TI steel. A titanium coating gives it better edge retention and grip, providing more consistency during use, while maintaining speed. This new blade is also equipped with Bauer’s Power Profile*, which helps the player maintain speed and a more powerful stride. Finally, the Reflex Tendon Guard, Reflex PRO tongue, and Flex Facing all work together to improve range of motion. The Ultrasonic’s Flex Rating is 90, which is the most supportive boot, providing incredible stability for the elite skater.
Years of leading R&D and performance testing have led to the pinnacle in head protection. Introducing the CCM Tacks 910, a sleek new helmet developed in collaboration with the Neurotrauma Impact Science Laboratory (NISL) at the university of Ottawa. Wrap your head in all-new pro-grade technologies that help protect your head while keeping you comfortable and at the top of your game. Oh, and this bad boy passes the mirror test with flying colors
Score a great deal on last season’s Bauer Supreme hockey skates. Right now we have good inventory and a variety of models to choose from. But don’t wait, when they’re gone, they’re gone for good
Bauer’s Power Profile is a 4 Zoned Radii, known as a Quad profile. The blade shape is designed with 4 zones uniquely placed and designed for specific performance improvements during all types of edge work.
• The first zone, located near the toe of the runner, is shaped to maximize acceleration. As the player begins their stride, the weight shifts over the top of the toes for the initial drive into the ice, utilizing a 6 inch radius.
• The second zone, known as the transition zone, sits on a 9 inch radius, which helps transition the players stride from rapid acceleration to measured, longer striding. The center of gravity shifts slightly back from the acceleration stride.
• The third zone, is the speed zone. Leveraging an 11 inch radius, the player is now maximizing their blade to ice contact for an efficient power transfer and straight line speed.
• The final zone, towards the heel of the blade, is the stability zone. This area holds the longest radius with 13 inches to provide balance as players shift between their edges when pivoting and absorbing contact.
Built from over 800,000 foot scans, Bauer has created a way for you to choose your skate “style” first, and “fit” second.
WHICH STYLE ARE YOU?
The Vapor collection is designed for players who put a premium on agility and lateral movement.
The Supreme collection is for players who value straight away speed and acceleration.
Each collection is available in 3 fits, so every foot shape is covered.
WHICH FIT ARE YOU?
FIT 1: Low volume, on the narrow side. Similar to a traditional Vapor fit.
FIT 2: Medium volume & width. Similar to a traditional Supreme fit.
FIT 3: High volume & wide width. Similar to a traditional Nexus fit.
Simply choose the style that fits your game, then choose the fit that best suits your foot. It’s that simple. If you have any questions just reach out to the experts at Sports Etc!
