Bauer Nexus Havok '22221019160022
Intro & New Features
The Nexus E4 looks to offer some high-performance features to up your game to the next level in 2022. The mid-level price point comes in at just 425g and is equipped with an ER spine, Dualcell core technology, and a unidirectional carbon weave.
Stick Flex Profile
The Nexus line is officially taking the full mid kick spot of Bauer hockey sticks, which they previously shared with Supreme. Mid kick is a solid stick for players who often find themselves doing just a bit of everything during the game. The Nexus E4 is ideal for those who want both big shots and a reliable release. Mid kick is made to be versatile in all aspects on the ice.
Shaft Construction & Stiffness
A big contributor to the overall weight reduction on the mid-level E4 stick is the use of carbon fibre throughout most of the stick, including both the shaft and the blade. Unidirectional carbon is a stronger construction than standard woven fibre and helps the stick keep a 425g weight (SR).
For this iteration of Nexus sticks, Bauer has elected to include their ER spine technology across all levels, from pro to recreational. This is because the line emphasizes control and power, and the ER spine—a hexagonal shaft geometry—has always been a major contributor to that characteristic at the highest level. Bauer’s commitment to enhancing the play of all players across all levels has made the inclusion of this tech natural into the new Nexus line.
The stick at this price point now uses Bauer’s Dualcell core technology. This tech involves dual-density foams in the core, with softer foam on the bottom and lighter foam on the top. The setup makes it easier to handle while enhancing the overall feel of the stick as you play. The E4 stick has also been constructed with 100% carbon fibre in the blade.
The E4 sticks to the classic black and blue of the Nexus line, with the addition of copper accents near the top and bottom with the Nexus and E4 logos. Over the bottom half of the shaft, the carbon fibre weave is visible.
The E4 uses a soft gloss grip, which works well with the ER Spine to balance control and freedom of movement for your hand.
