The Bauer APX 2 Pro Gloves are designed and engineered based on feedback from pro-level players and equipment managers, with an added emphasis on providing pro-style protection, as well as comfort and fit. At first glance, Bauer moved from the modern, synthetic leather and they upgraded to a pro nylon mesh. This is meant to give durability and allow it to breathe. Bauer added their Poron XRD™ foam to the backhand of the glove, which is actually a memory foam. It will not only form to the shape of your hand, but it will give you the best protection against slashes and pucks. In addition to the Thermo Max liner, Bauer added their new, revolutionary, 37.5™ technology. While in the liner, the 37.5™ evaporates the sweat from your body, giving you the best feel during action! Finally, the Ax Suede Quattro+ palm is a traditional ivory, and is constructed with a fiber blend that remains durable while giving you a soft, comfortable feel. The APX2 Pro gloves are continue Bauer's tradition of gold-standard gloves.
