New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced chest protectors in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Junior Goalie Chest & Arm Protector. The X2.9 Junior has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest on the market.
Starting off with the chest portion of the Bauer X2.9 Junior, form fitting shoulder floaters with HD foam provide great protection with a tight profile that will help the goaltender move their head freely, along with free-flex edge technology that provides mobility throughout the unit when reaching in any direction. An arch adjustment system has been implemented to help adjust the shoulder floaters to either sit higher or lower for the goaltender’s comfort and preference. On the inside, the chest and backplate are lined with a ThermoMax liner to help keep the goaltender cool during usage.
Further on the X2.9 chest portion, a layered HD foam pad is placed on the sternum to help provide extra protection for the goaltender and help control rebounds by absorbing the impact of shots and allowing the goaltender to get a quick cover.
Down to the stomach, an MD foam core extension system has been added that gives added protection to the hips and lower stomach of the goaltender. This extension is made up of three separate pieces that gives the chest protector added length on the stomach and are connected by Velcro on the bottom of the stomach for easy adjustments or removal. Carried over from the 1X, the Fast Strap system is a unique connection point between the backplate and stomach. It is designed to sit on the goalie’s waist and allow for quick adjustments to provide a dialed in fit or quick removal from the body.
Moving on to the arms of the Vapor X2.9, they feature a laced in design so they can be tightened or loosened up for adjustments. HD foam is added into the biceps and forearms to help create stability and protection. On the arm floaters, a Dynamic 3 flex construction offers mobility in the arms to allow the goaltender to bend and extend their arms freely without restriction.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a chest protector that is made to be lightweight with unmatched mobility, the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Junior Goalie Chest & Arm Protector is the unit you are looking for.
