Companies have produced skates with newer and greater tech than ever before, and we've rounded up the newest skates in one place. Shop with GoalieMonkey and return to the rink in confidence.
The Ultrasonic Goal Skate is for the elite goalie. Bauer focused in on 3 key areas: best weight, best attack angle, and best energy transfer. Weight has been shaved by continuing to use a Curv composite quarter and by adding AEROFOAM PRO ankle padding to provide great comfort with lightweight features. A smaller profile asymmetrical toe cap gives Bauer the best attack angle on the market. And for energy transfer Bauer utilized UNIBODY TECHNOLOGY for better pushes out of the butterfly. With the debut of Ultrasonic skates, Bauer is introducing a new depth and fit. This added depth to the ankle provides better out-of-the-box fit and added stability.
The 2021 TF9 stock goal skate is designed for goalies seeking the performance benefits and best-in-class fit that's synonymous with TRUE skates.

The ultra-comfortable Neoprene Achilles cuff allows for full ankle extension and mobility, while the exterior, low profile loop accommodates all strap sizes for added secure pad attachment.
