New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced goalie skates in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Junior Goalie Skates. The 2X Pro skate has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest skates on the market.
Starting off with the build of the Bauer 2X Pro Junior, a cowlingless boot design provides deeper attack angles for quicker pushes on the ice, while cutting down the overall weight. This skate comes with an all new carbon Curve Composite quarter package that will provide durability with an incredibly lightweight feel all while having top level protection.
Moving on to the ankle area of the Vapor 2X Pro, a new Aerofoam memory ankle pad wraps around the sides and back of the ankle and provides comfort for the goaltender while in a ready stance. Next, flex edge padding wraps around the sides of the collar to allow the goaltender to get in to a deep stance comfortably. On the back, a nylon heel loop is provided and has been made larger to allow for an easier fit for a boot strap. Finally, a dynamic flex tongue acts as a spring, allowing the goalie to get forward flex when in a stance but keep their support and fit in the boot for all other movements.
Included on the Bauer Vapor 2X Junior is the Vertexx Edge holder that was featured previously in the Vapor line. This holder features the Edge Trigger System for quick and easy steel replacements. On the topic of steel, the 2X Pro features 3mm LSG5 Vertexx Carbon-Coated stainless steel that improves the edge life and gives greater resistance to corrosion on the steel. This steel also sits higher than regular steel to give the goaltender deeper attack angles and easier pushes.
Finally, the bottom of the 2X Pro features an ultra-lightweight vented composite outsole designed to help against rust on the inside rivets by venting moisture out through the bottom of the skate. Next, the liner is made from Bauer’s new Lock Fit Pro liner that is designed with key grip points to help comfortably lock the goaltender’s foot in to place to provide full control during usage.
In comparison to the Vapor X2.9 goalie skate, the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro features higher quality construction and higher quality materials.
If you are an elite-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie skate that is made as a one piece boot with a lightweight design, the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Junior Goalie Skates are the skates for you.
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
Fit 2: Medium volume/Medium width
Fit 3: High volume/Wide width
