The Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Skates are the ultimate low-profile hockey skate, boasting the best fit, agility and comfort properties a Vapor skate has ever seen. The Carbon Curv Composite boot is one of the lightest and most responsive on the market, plus its asymmetrical design provides better support and range of motion compared to symmetrical boots.
Also asymmetrical is the new toe cap. Based off over 25,000 3D foot scans, the 2X Pro provides better stride efficiency and better skate-to-foot connection with its reduced internal volume. It’s even lined with felt for a new level of comfort too. This holds true for the liner too, the new AeroFoam Pro padding isn’t just thicker than before, it extends further into the toe box covering the uncomfortable sidewalls. Meanwhile, the Comfort Edge padding is much more accommodating than the previous generation.
The top of the foot is covered with a new Recoil Pro Tongue that is more comfortable and flexible, yet it still maintains pro-level impact protection. This sits between the reengineered one-piece facing system that creates better forward flexion, increases durability and improves energy transfer too. Its eyelets are uniquely shaped so that they keep the skate laces all game long, not to mention they included a second set of (3) eyelets to experiment different lacing patterns with.
