Look for the newest revolution to goaltending on April 24 only at BTM Scottsdale. Available for use at BTM Demo Day, scheduled for Saturday, June 6, at BTM Scottsdale.
Bauer Supreme Goalie Equipment
Arriving just in time for BTM Goalie Day 2020 is the Bauer Supreme Ultra Sonic goalie pads.

With a new Stabilislide knee cradle and asymmetrical CURV composite thigh rise, this newest model is sure to impress. The most exciting addition to the line is the Bauer GSX Goal line. This price-point entry-level line is impressive. With lightweight durable materials and easy to use strapping system, look for this new line to take the goalie world by storm.
Bauer Vapor Protective Gear
Arriving late June, the 2020 Bauer Vapor Protective line of gloves, elbow pads, shin guards, shoulder pads and hockey pants arrive at all BTM locations. The newest line features upgraded materials and new designs to improve speed on the ice.
Warrior Ritual G5 Goalie Pads
Available April 14 are the Ritual G5 Pro leg pads featuring CoverEDGE+ technology. CoverEDGE+ applies a face-forward design that adds a new dimension to maximizing your coverage in net. Bringing the face of each piece of G5 gear forward, the angle to the puck is further cut down, allowing you to get a piece of pucks that would just miss more conventionally designed gear. The Airslide landing surface enhances pad sliding, especially on rough/snowy ice. RVH optimized outer roll seals against goal posts in Reverse VH position without sacrificing necessary puck stopping benefits. In the new chest pad, Shockshield disperses the impact of the puck across a plastic cap and the trampoline liner to increase protection and comfort.
Be sure to check out the newest goalie gear at the 2020 Behind the Mask Goalie Demo Day, scheduled for Saturday, June 6 at BTM Scottsdale. Meet the company goalie experts from Bauer, CCM, Warrior, True, Brian’s and Vaughn.
Demo the gear on the ice for free from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Gear is limited, and the ice fills quickly, so be sure to arrive early. Please bring all your equipment to ensure you can still get on the ice when demo products become scarce.
