How do you figure especially regarding fit? They profile skates based on width of heel, pronouncement of heel, and instep depth. What other company does any of that?
They basically offer 6 different fit profiles based on those 3 attributes and all in 3 widths. That's 18 different fits for the same size skate.
I have a narrow-pronounced heel. Bauer doesn't even offer a skate like that. Look at the side view of a Graf G35x and then look at a Vapor or Supreme.
Fit is Graf's bread and butter. It's comfort and technology(weight) where they are slightly behind.
