The new Bauer Vapor APX2 Hockey Skates offers a X-rib design that provides structural support and stability throughout the boot, allowing for faster acceleration and quicker turns. The angle of the boot is cut aggressive to allow for greater forward flex. The injected stability lacing system with innovative one-piece construction maximizes energy return and provides increased stability throughout the life of the skate and explosive energy transfer with every stride. The Bauer APX skate stability lacing system reduces the amount of total energy lost vs. traditional construction allowing the player to exit turns faster while increasing acceleration for more energy transfer to the ice. The new lacing system will help make each cross over quicker allowing the player to experience faster feet for maximum on-ice performance. The Bauer Vapor APX2 skate Tuuk LS Fusion blades have revolutionary runner design, fusing the strength and performance of our elite stainless steel with highgrade aluminum, reducing the weight of the runner by 27%.
FORM FIT LITE FELT TONGUE with CURV INSERT Combination of 52oz and 40oz felt tongue construction improves overall integration of skate and foot. Lightweight construction pushes the skate to new extremes of weight reduction. The Curv® composite inserts provide a higher level of protection and increased support.
LINER Revolutionary liner technology helps regulate the core body temperature of the player keeping your foot dry and locked in place for complete control. Fabrics with 37.5™ Technology dry up to 5X faster than similar fabrics.
