4) little comfort gimmicks at the side.

5) a bit of aluminum on your blades

6) new paint job

All that for a $200 upgrade.
So, in short, 6 points. One of them being a completely different construction of the upper part of the skate. Another being a lighter blade while maintaining overall integrity. Yup, Bauer has no idea what their doing.
