Bauer Hockey is proud to unveil their latest addition to their Vapor skate line with the introduction of the Bauer Vapor 2X Youth Ice Hockey Skates! With key improvements made to nearly every part of the skates, Bauer looks to offer ultimate performance every time you step onto the ice!
Starting with the build of the Vapor 2X Hockey Skates, the quarter package is built with Bauer’s Acceflex system. Rather than going with a highly stiff boot, this design allows for a very slight amount of flex within the boot, allowing it to conform to the natural shape of your foot, which helps with overall performance and comfort! This new design is constructed out of Bauer’s 3-D lasted Fiber Composite material with an X-Rib pattern on the back and Comfort Edge padding within the boot. This setup provides a familiar snug, close to the foot feel. Additionally, it is incredibly lightweight and durable as well, thanks to the Fiber Composite material. The X-Rib pattern on the back of the skates helps lock the heel into place for quicker crossovers and tighter turns!
Going hand in hand with the fiber composite boot construction is a 30-ounce felt tongue with HD foam metatarsal guards. This setup provides players with a highly comfortable and protective fit and feel.
Staying true to the asymmetrical concept seen within the Vapor, the Vapor 2X Hockey Skates take it a step further with the introduction of their new asymmetrical toe cap and box! Using the profile of 25,000 player scans, Bauer has optimized this new design to enhance your push-off power, helping increase top-end speed! Compared to its predecessor, this new toe cap and box is a touch shorter in height and longer in length.
Moving to the interior of the Vapor 2X Hockey Skates, they feature Bauer’s Lock-Fit liner. This liner is specifically designed to keep players feet dry and comfortable, as well as locked into place during gameplay in order to maximize skating efficiency thanks to a specialized grip on the lower half of the liner. Paired with the Lock-Fit liner are the memory foam pads within the ankles of the boot. These lightweight foams deliver premium thermoformability, good comfort and durability, and an improved fit!
The lower half of the Vapor 2X Hockey Skates feature Bauer’s LightSpeed PRO II holders, paired with LS1 runners. This setup is highly durable and lightweight, and thanks to the stainless-steel runners, provide increased longevity on skate sharpenings.
