Bauer skates are developed with the science of fit. Fit is paramount in skates and Bauer takes pride in the scientific approach taken to ensure the best fit so players can skate faster, harder and stronger. Through in-depth research, key areas of foot variance have been identified which creates a fit for every player. The 2017 Bauer Vapor Skates are a tapered fit offering dynamic speed. These skates are ideal for a low profile feel with a shallow heel pocket, low instep and min ankle wrap.
New to the 2017 Bauer Vapor X900 skates are the Flex-Lock+ Tongue, Lock-Fit+ Liner and Lock-Fit+ footbed. The Flex-Lock+ Tongue creates a locked-in fit with forward flex and added protection. The Lock-Fit+ Liner keeps your foot dry and locked in place for maximum agility and acceleration. The new Lock-Fit+ footbed features arch plates to adapt to patient arch height and snap-in or out of each insole easily.
The quarter package of this skate is a 3-D lasted Curv® composite upper with X-rib pattern for durability and protection. The anatomical heel and ankle provides support while skating and an excellent level of protection. The lightweight form fit foam ankle pads help with comfort around the ankle areas and also ensure your foot stays secure in the skate. The 2017 Bauer Vapor X900 Skates feature a full lightweight composite outsole for durability and protection.
The TUUK Lightspeed Edge holders are the preferred holder of many NHL players as runners can easily be swapped out when an edge is lost or to easily alternate between different sets. This skate has TUUK LS2 stainless steel runners which have an adjusted height for consistency (16.5mm) and fit seamlessly into the TUUK Lightspeed edge holders (10? stock radius).
