I do wish that Bauer would stop it with the " acceleration and mobility" nonsense. The differences in the APX-Supreme-NEXUS, is SOLELY FIT!!! The APX is the most narrow and the NEXUS is the widest.
If you have a narrow flatter foot you will love the APX. There is NO FORWARD pitch in the skate. There is more forward flex but the Supreme has 3 tongues to switch that resolve that.

A couple of us from the Warehouse got to skate on these a month or two ago. They felt pretty dang good especially compared to the Easton RS skates I used a few days prior. It has a quick release trigger built into the holder (which is 3mm taller than last years APX) to allow you to swap your holders out in a quick second. I think Bauer did a fine job on these!

I personally like the RS', I think they are a good skate. But going from the RS' to the APX2 was a world of difference, the APX2's felt much more aggressive and responsive.

how come? could you tell me how they've accomplished that?
From what I see, apx compared to rs are a higher cut boot, with wore stiffness and with better steel. am I right? The heat moldability of the rs boot seems better from what I see.
Is there something I'm missing?

Yeah so a portion of it comes down to the holder that sits 3mm taller on the APX2. It allows you to get over further on your edges without bottoming out. The other advantage the APX2 is the Curve Composite quarter package. It's very stiff in the necessary areas so your energy return is maximized more than the RS II.
