The NLS: 2 is built off of a 3D Lasted Curv Composite upper, made famous in Bauer’s top-of-the-line models in the Vapor 1X, Supreme 1S, and Nexus 1N ice hockey skates. This fully composite upper makes its debut for Mission hockey in the NLS series. The anatomically correct Curv Composite upper is of the highest quality featuring unsurpassed strength, durability, support, and feel, which ultimately provides a more comfortable fit and more responsive skate. What takes this quarter package to the next level though is going to be in the incredible heat molding characteristics of Curv itself. With an anatomical fit right out of the box, the NLS: 2’s can be thermoformed around the ankle and heel to give an even more true 360 degree custom fit for any foot shape.
What really makes the Inhaler series stand out is going to be features that help justify its name, its breathability and airflow. Playing roller hockey indoors or outdoors is hot and the Inhaler NLS: 2 feature an all new vent shape on both sides of the quarter package. The toe box is also molded with vents on the sides and top for maximum airflow while skating. Even the tongue is covered with vented mesh to promote breathability to let heat and sweat escape from the skate! It’s with these innovations the NSL: 2 is uniquely a roller hockey specific skate, but aesthetically, this line screams roller hockey style.
Mission made this skate extremely customizable when it comes to the skates overall look. They returned the colored heel chips and removable Velcro tendon mission logo so that you can mix and match with any uniform. This skate comes complete with 2 different tendon colors and 6 different heel chip insert colors.
For added comfort, this skate features a Quilted Grip liner working alongside Mission’s Indy Foam pads. These pads offer a pillow like feel as ankle padding while keeping your heel locked for maximum energy transfer in each and every stride. This quilted foam is the perfect amount of ankle comfort sitting inside of a stiff responsive boot.
The boot sits atop a lightweight, full carbon composite outsole with the HI-LO CNC Aluminum Chassis mounted to it. This is a lightweight chassis engineered for balance and agility using two 76mm wheels in the front and two 80mm wheels in the back. The idea behind HI-LO is that big wheels go in the back for more speed, while the smaller wheels in the front are for more control. The wheels the NLS: 2 features are Revision’s Variant Plus wheels which come complete with HI-LO Swiss bearings for max speed!
