Bauer Vapor 3X Ice Hockey Skate Intermediate
The Bauer Vapor 3X Skate was designed for the hockey player looking for a high-performance skate for maximum agility without the high price tag. The all-new 3D Flex Composite boot isn't just significantly lighter than the previous generation, it has the added support and stiffness needed to win the next race to the puck.
The new boot works with the internal memory foams to take heat moulding to the next level for a custom-like, broken-in feel before ever hitting the ice. The top of the foot is well protected and comforted by the pro-stock 40oz felt tongue and their extended liner for an even better feel. Also helping out is the asymmetrical toe box that improves foot-to-ice connection and general fit by reducing unnecessary internal space.
On just the junior models (1.0 - 3.5) Bauer incorporated their MotionFlex Technology and LS Balance runners for an even better skating experience. MotionFlex is the yellow portion just under the third eyelet from the top that allows the young players to properly flex the skate, resulting in better power and agility. The LS Balance runners come with a flatter 13' radius which promotes a confidence-boosting, stable feel on the ice compared to the traditional 10' counterparts.
