For more than 80 years, Bauer has helped hockey players of all levels take to the ice with the finest skates, sticks, gloves, pads, helmets and apparel.


Bauer skates are developed with the science of fit. Fit is paramount in skates and Bauer takes pride in the scientific approach taken to ensure the best fit so players can skate faster, harder and stronger. Through in-depth research, key areas of foot variance have been identified which creates a fit for every player. The 2017 Bauer Vapor Skates are a tapered fit offering dynamic speed. These skates are ideal for a low profile feel with a shallow heel pocket, low instep and min ankle wrap.

New to the 2017 Bauer Vapor 1X skates are the Flex-Lock Pro Tongue, Lock-Fit Pro Liner and Lock-Fit Pro Facing. The Flex-Lock Pro Tongue creates a locked-in fit with forward flex and added protection through a slow-molding insert. The Lock-Fit Pro Liner keeps your foot dry and locked in place for maximum agility and acceleration. Lace up and go with the Lock-Fit Pro Facing which is a combination of additional lace lock and a softer flex composition. The 1X injected facing creates a locked fit so your next stride is as fast as your last.

The quarter package of this skate is a 3-D lasted Curv® composite upper with X-rib pattern and Comfort Edge padding. The Comfort Edge padding provides comfort around the top of the ankle so the skates do not dig in around your ankles when skating. The Curv® composite heel and ankle provide exceptional support while skating and a pro level of protection. The lightweight memory foam ankle pads help with comfort around the ankle areas and also ensure your foot stays secure in the skate.

The 2017 Bauer Vapor 1X Skates feature a ventilated full carbon composite outsole for durability and breathability. The TUUK Lightspeed Edge holders are the preferred holder of many NHL players as runners can easily be swapped out when an edge is lost or to easily alternate between different sets. This skate has TUUK LS4 stainless steel runners which feature a high grade stainless steel with polished finish for increased edge retention properties. The higher steel profile also gives a longer sharpening life and greater angle of attack (10? stock radius).

These skates come with Bauer Speed Plates™ which were developed using industry leading proprietary technology. The Speed Plates™ feature a recovery allow that provides the player with a revolutionary customized fit for the entire foot. The precision fit allows the skate to become a part of the foot enabling the player to achieve optimized balance and stability resulting in higher top end speed and ultimate efficiency. This skate is fully thermoformable and can be molded to the foot at the same time as Bauer?s Speed Plate™
