Does anyone know what knee guards these are? Saw them on The Hockey Shop Source for Sports bauer hyperlite pad review. They don’t seem like anything bauer offers now, so i was wondering if they are knee guards that are coming out with the hyperlite line.

Bauer has redesigned/changed the graphics on their knee pro for this year.   I haven't seen either of these in person yet to know if there are differences beyond simply cosmetic changes.

Are they not making the 4-strap Supreme models anymore?

Looks like the user is wearing them backwards.  The velcro is usually on the outside of the knee.

Yeah I would think that Bauer would lean more towards the 1x design because most people seem to like those more. Also where can you fin Bauer's pro knee guard model online?

You can't until later this spring.  Once the new lines drop all the retailers will have them.  @CJ Boiss Those are their top 2 models for next year.  The only other option looks like a rebranded X900. If you like the current Supreme knee pro I'd probably grab a backup set.  Looking at a couple retailers it already looks like they've gotten a 20% markdown.

Looks mostly cosmetic to me. If anything I hope they improved the durability material of the 1X model as well as making the landing inside more cushy for the knee cap.

Speaking of the 1X, has anyone heated the front cap to be more curved instead of sticking out wide?

These look a lot like the 1x's apart from some areas in size. Would the Bauer Pros be like an upgraded 1x, or something new?

Honestly, I'd be speculating if I said anything more than I have already.   To me, the Elite looks almost exactly like the 1x knee pro I bought over the winter and the Pro looks like the Supreme with the strapping changed around slightly.  But those are my opinions only.  Given the current (high) stock levels at the store I work at, it's pretty unlikely I'll be seeing these in person any time soon.

I don't really want to be the first, but that would solve the number one complaint I've had with the 1X knee pad.

Basically...

Old Supreme knee, jock, and neckgaurd = Pro

Old Vapor = Elite

And yes, on the knee pads, the "anchor strap" is gone. The did update the bottom strap and it's like the neoprene style from 1X

I liked the padding, cut off the cap

Looking at the pics above some more, I can already see some slight issues and possible improvements I'd suggest to the Bauer designers...if I knew who they were and could get in touch with.

Lol give it a try first, it looks promising. Like @southpawtendy48 I was thinking of ordering paw but might give these a shot. My favorite guards were the original yellow Supremes, on my 2nd pair now.

That I wouldn't be surprised. Few companies, regardless what product or industry rarely work with public feedback. Those that do have a better chance at producing something that will sell.

I'll put new and old side by side for reference

New Pro / Old Supreme

New Elite / Old 1X

Both new lines look to have carried over the bottom knee landing portion from the 1X. 

The new pro seems a little more ergonomically friendly as it has a slight C-shape compared to the straight vertical on the old Supreme.

They added a strap keeper on the top strap of the new Elite.

Note they changed the garter attachment on both old pieces from the dual nylon tabs to a single rounded loop, so we'll have to buy new garters.

I'm a big fan of the 1X.  They've been off and on pretty hard to find at retail - either they were not making enough, or were selling out that fast.

My gen1 1X has the rounded loop already. Bought like that. Maybe it was a shop spec.

      I am currently looking into getting a new pair of skates. i currently wear a Bauer Supreme 2sPro size 8.5D, i am having issues with the depth of the ankle area of the skate, my inner ankle bone specifically. i have these little ankle socks with silicone pads i wear to even just put on the skates, as my inner ankle bone has gotten so bruised, the ankle pads help, but only so much. i went to my nearest source for sports here in Winnipeg, and tried on a set of pro return True 2-piece custom skates. right out of the gate they fit me surprisingly well, they were hard to get on, and the skate was pretty snug width and depth wise overall, and i had much much more ankle depth which felt great. but i have a few questions regarding the Trues.
       
      1. since they are pro stock, would i still have a warranty on them? they are brand new never used. only reason im asking is because ive heard a mix of good and bad reviews with the durability.
      2. Will they form well to my feet if they were built for someone else?
      3. What thickness is the step steel on the 2-piece holders?
      4. Is the maintenance as important as im reading? ie. taking the footbeds out after every skate, putting them infront of a fan, etc.
      5. when baking them, how many times should i bake them? i baked my 2spros 3 different times to get them feeling somewhat okay.
      6. does anyone else have any experience with pro stock true skates? if so, how have they been?
      i have tried ccm skates, and my foot just does not fit in those, at all, even after baking them, i used to wear Grafs and those were so comfy, i have not tried vapor skates, but id imagine id have a similar issue with those as im having with my 2spros. id also rather not drop a grand on vapor skates if i can get these trues for half the price, and they end up fitting me better anyways.
      Edit*: doing some digging, I have also found that Goaliemonkey.com sells true pro stock skates for about 700$ U.S, reading the reviews off of that, it seems like the skates bake well to other peoples feet, which I guess would make sense considering the way the skate is built. That does bring me some sanity lol. I had also called my local store about warranties, and got some good news. 
      “ the boots have a 90 day warranty, the holders and steel have a 1 year warranty” which is good since I’ve read the rivets like to come loose on these skates! 
      thanks for the read! any help/guidance would be awesome!!

      I am well aware of popular social media Instagram accounts getting paid/ free gear to say good things about the companies equipment.  With that being said there are Really no good social media accounts that goalies looking to get new gear can really rely on, due to the fact that these main stream accounts have to say good stuff or they won't get anything free no more, hockey reviews CA is good and so is TRAV4 but Travis job isn't to just review everything and im not expecting him to anyways he wants to focus on pro hockey which im totally ok with, hockey reviews CA I have to really take with a grain of salt like the other ones because he doesn't really move good in the crease so his reviews are kinda mush mush. Id love to see a popular account that has reliable reviews to people on gear however companies aren't gonna just blow out gear to ppl that are gona say bad things about their gear just doesn't make sense, wish stuff could change but realistically just going to the local store retailer for info is always the best for the honest truth and try everything on and fell whatever is good for you. and in pretty sure store reps get free gear as well but that's another topic to talk about
