The Bauer Vapor APX2 Elbow Pads are the pinnacle of the Vapor line in 2014. They feature all of Bauer's top technologies from the 37.5™ Technology to the AeroLite™ Foam. The goal of the Vapor line and tapered fit is to give you a close, lightweight, comfortable fit without sacrificing any protection. The Aerolite™ Foam is what's really saving weight on the APX2. Aerolite™ is around 30% lighter than other high-density foams, and just as protective. Also, it doesn't absorb water like other HD foams. And speaking of moisture, Bauer's brand new 37.5™ technology is featured in the liner of these pads, as it is in the entire APX2 line. The 37.5™ technology manages moisture by helping for it to evaporate during gameplay! Additionally, Bauer added the Free Flex cap, which allows a greater range of motion for the forearm, allowing you to dangle through open ice, as well as in tight areas!
