Bauer Hockey is proud to unveil their latest addition to their Vapor skate line with the introduction of the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Junior Ice Hockey Skates! With key improvements made to nearly every part of the skates, Bauer looks to offer ultimate performance every time you step onto the ice!
Starting with the build of the Vapor X2.9 Hockey Skates, the quarter package is built with Bauer’s Perform Flex system. Rather than going with a highly stiff boot, this design allows for a very slight amount of flex within the boot, allowing it to conform to the natural shape of your foot, which helps with overall performance and comfort! This new design is constructed out of Bauer’s 3-D lasted Tech Mesh material with an X-Rib pattern on the back and Comfort Edge padding within the boot. This setup provides a familiar snug, close to the foot feel. Additionally, it is highly lightweight and durable as well. The X-Rib pattern helps lock the heel into place for quicker crossovers and tighter turns!
Going hand in hand with the Tech Mesh boot construction is Bauer’s two-piece 48-ounce tongue with injected metatarsal guards. This setup provides players with a highly comfortable and protective fit and feel!
Moving to the interior of the Vapor X2.9 Hockey Skates, they feature a hydrophobic microfiber liner. This liner is specifically designed to keep players feet dry and comfortable by working to wick away moisture. Paired with this liner are the Aerofoam memory foam pads within the ankles of the boot. This all-new foam delivers premium thermoformability, great comfort and durability, and an improved fit!
The lower half of the Vapor X2.9 Hockey Skates feature Bauer’s tried-and-true LightSpeed EDGE holders. These holders are three millimeters taller than older model LightSpeed holders allowing players to get lower on their turns. Paired with the LightSpeed EDGE holders are the LS1 runners. These high-grade stainless-steel runners feature improved longevity on skate sharpenings!
With the additions of the Perform Flex system, the 3-D lasted Tech Mesh Quarter, and the Comfort Edge padding, every element of the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Junior Ice Hockey Skates offers high-end performance and a quality feel every time you put them on your feet!
Sizing Guidelines: When you receive your skates, try them on and push your foot forward so that your toes (while flat) barely glance the toe cap. Bend your knee forward and look behind the heel of your foot down the skate. If you can fit a finger behind the heel easily, the skates are too big. A fingertip should be securely wedged between the heel of your foot and the back side of the skate. While all players might have their own preference for fit, hockey skates should be 1 ½ sizes down from your shoe size. For most players this will be close to the proper fit. For example, if you are a US Men's shoe size 9, you would want to go with a skate size 7.5.
Fit 1: Low volume/Narrow
