The Vapor 1X skate is engineered to maximize the attack angle of goalies, regardless of the movement they are making. This is accomplished by the cowlingless construction and the Vertexx Edge Holder. The 3mm LS3G steel is designed to accommodate the natural position the goalie will be in. With the Vertexx holder goalies can change their steel in seconds in case they loose an edge mid-game. The 1X has upgraded quarter panels to make this the lightest and more durable skate from this model year. This boot accommodates players with more volume in the width and ankle. The comfort edge padding helps to the soften the collar of the skate in order to make the skate more comfortable during play.
