The Nexus 5000 skates feature a quarter package comprised of Variable stiffness Compression molded EVA with sport nylon and integrated Speed Flex channels, which are reminiscent of the X-rib pattern found in the Vapor line and help provide added stiffness and rigidity to both the heel and quarter package.
The classic fit profile features a traditional “Deep-V” heel shape, combined with an anatomically molded upper and insole. The result is a boot that provides a comfortable, secure heel lock, while allowing for better wrap along the top of the foot. These fit characteristics amount to a boot that is comfortable right out of the box , and is very accommodating to players with higher volume feet.
The Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder has established itself as a game changer, and now makes its debut in the Nexus line. The new holder not only provides an added three millimeters of height, allowing for a more aggressive angle of attack, but also allows players to switch out the TUUK Super EDGE stainless steel (found on the Nexus 5000) on the fly.
The anatomical, 2-piece felt tongue is 40 oz. and features a metatarsal guard that helps provides comfort and protection on the ice. The 5000 will also feature a Hydrophobic microfiber liner helps wick away moisture keeping your boots dry and prolonging the life of the skate. Add Bauer’s Molded EVA footbed and you have a complete package of comfort and performance.
