The Bauer Vapor 1X Skate is the most anatomical, protective and responsive Vapor skate due to the totally re-designed boot, liner and tongue. Unlike any Bauer skate in the past, the asymmetrical CurvR122 composite quarter package extends further on the inside of the foot compared to the outside. This truly wraps around your asymmetrical ankle bones, putting players in a more agile and comfortable attack angle.
The Flex-Lock Pro tongue features thermoformable composite inserts that provide 30% more protection, more forward flex and an even better fit. Thanks to the heat moldability, players can now experience a truly 360° customized fit around the foot while the pro-stock 52oz white felt provides a traditional look and feel. The Lock-Fit Pro liner ensure players get every ounce of power by eliminating slippage inside of the boot, which is simply energy lost. The combination of grip and moisture managing materials improve energy transfer by comfortably but locking-in the foot to the boot.
Compared to the previous 1X, this second generation features a Lock-Fit Pro lacing system that was built to improve overall control and durability. Using an all-new mold, it utilizes lace-locking eyelets from the 2nd eyelet (from the top) to the 7th, ensuring players are locked-in and laces stay tight. The entire construction is softer than before, which allows for a much better wrap over the top of the foot and increased forward flex.
Key carryover features include anti-wear liner patches, Comfort Edge collar wraps, a vented composite outsole and the Tuuk LS4 runners with its Tuuk Edge Holder.
