Molding Skates

Sorry if this has been discussed multiple times in the past, I searched and couldnt find the specific answer that I was looking for.

Is it possible to heat mold Bauer One95's with a hair dryer? I had them baked at the store when I bought them, but still feel they need some more and the store is more than 45 minutes away.

Will I cause any damage to the skates, or is it not even hot enough to mold?

any input is great. thanks

Theres a whole thread here (http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=523861) about baking scouts.

Anyway, if you're looking to mold them, I would recommend going back to the pro shop since generally they know what they're doing. If it's a huge inconvenience for you then here is a good step by step instruction provided by the Colorado Avalanche (http://www.coloradoavalanchecares.co...kates-at-home/)

I would suspect a hair dryer isn't going to be enough.

EC is right in that you can spot mold the boot with some heat and patience. However, I wouldn't go by the instructions on the Colorado Avalanche page. Each type of skate is different in their materials and so their baking procedures are also different. The One95s come with baking instructions, and they should be followed.

Agreed leave it to the pros.

Or, you could just break them in the old fashioned way... using them on the ice.

Even all of the new skates with new technology need to get hours of ice time to fully break in.

You can't shortcut or cheat the break in process.

Get on the ice, and skate.

One95s, CCM U+, and x60s are all extremely thermoformable and greatly benefit from heat molding.

A lot of guys I know (pros included) have had to bake their One95s twice. If you are going to bake them, go to a pro shop. If they screw it up it's on their dime. If you screw it up then you just lost $600.
