The Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Glove continues to improve Vapor’s top-tier lineage with key improvements in fit, feel and protection. The 1X Lite’s redesigned backroll and tighter finger gussets offer a more anatomical fit in the lower portion of the glove, while the Free Flex cuff opens up more than before for enhanced mobility.
Bauer utilized their new AX Suede Quattro Grip palm with a Stretch Fit insert that provides enhanced stick feel, stick grip and abrasion-resistance. This palm and the liner are all treated with Sanitized Technology that keeps the 1X Lite smelling fresh by preventing odor-causing bacteria from ever forming. The unique treatment process directly embeds it into the fabric so it won’t wash out over time. 37.5 Liner Technology is found here also, which does one of the best jobs of moisture-management on the market. 37.5 uses a player’s body heat to dry the moisture instead of wicking it around like traditional materials.
The vast majority of the 1X Lite glove boasts featherlight dual-density foams to provide elite impact protection with as little weight as possible. The patented three-piece Free Flex thumb, the segmented fingers and the tri-zone exterior shell work together to provide a broken-in, game-ready feel right out of the box. The unique Free Flex cuff helps out too with its extra-mobile design that works by enabling the cuff to move independently of the glove’s body. This is possible due to the integrated stretch gusset that anchors the cuff to just underneath the cuff roll.
