Make your last stride as quick as your first and leave your opponent in the dust with the new Bauer Vapor 1X Senior Ice Hockey Skate. New for 2017, the Bauer Vapor 1X skate builds upon the concepts that made the 2015 1X line one of the top skates on the market with new improvements for unmatched speed and quickness.

The Bauer Vapor 1X skate will still be constructed using the ultra-lightweight Curv® composite material, which reduces the overall weight of the skate while keeping the durability, strength, and support that players are used to with the top end skates. The X-rib pattern will continue the heel and ankle lock design to keep the skaters foot in place for quicker crossovers and tighter turns. The top of the 1X skate will also feature Bauer’s Comfort Edge padding, which alleviates high ankle abrasions that can happen with a stiffer boot.

New designs on the Bauer Vapor 1X skate further the locking features to make the 1X feel like an extension of your foot. The Vapor 1X boot will still keep its tapered fit, with its narrow heel and standard toe, but with a redesigned quarter panel. Next, the ankle of the skate will be moving from the older fit to a new asymmetrical fit. These design changes on the Vapor 1X will better align the skate with the player’s natural ankle position. Adding more to the inside ankle of the Vapor 1x skate not only makes the skate fit better and more comfortably, but give more for the skater more push off on.

Continuing the locking theme of the skate, Bauer introduces its Lock-Fit Pro facing and liner, along with the Flex-Lock Pro tongue. The Lock-Fit Pro liner is specifically designed with two parts to not only keep your foot dry, but in place throughout the game. The lower part of the liner will have a more locking grip, and the upper will have added material in the high wear areas of the ankle. The injected Lock-Fit facing features a softer flex and reinforced lace locking system to keep the laces from losing their form during the game. The tongue contains thermoforming inserts to provide increased protection over a traditional tongue, while allowing a locked forward flex to help provide maximum speed. The back of the tongue will also feature the same liner as inside the skate to help keep it locked onto the skater’s foot. These new features will not only lock the player’s foot in place, but allow a better forward flex needed to achieve a faster speed.
