Overview: The Bauer Vapor HyperLite 2 skates were engineered specifically for the elite-level and pro-aspiring players who want any competitive advantage they can possibly get. This year, Bauer pushes the HyperLite’s performance further with the introduction of the PowerFly holder, an improved tongue, and better materials in the outsole of the skate.
New Upgrades: PowerFly Holder, Aerolite 2.0 Tongue, Hyperflex Tech.
Runner: Choose your steel … You choose the runner you want to purchase with your skate. Bauer offers Carbonlite, Pulse TI, and Pulse runners, which we’ve seen in other Bauer skates in recent years. New for this year are the Fly-TI and Fly-X runners, which are compatible with the Lightspeed Edge holder and the PowerFly holder.
Holder: PowerFly Holder … This is the first skate holder made of variable flex points throughout the entire lower. The front post of the holder is rigid, increasing energy transfer in every stride for faster acceleration. The hyperbolic stability bar increases balance for quicker transitions, and the responsive back post promotes faster side-to-side transitions.
Liner: LockFit Pro Liner … Engineered for performance by keeping your feet dry and locked in place.
Tongue: Aerolite 2.0 … Bauer improved the comfort where the tongue and ankle interact, adding their Comfort Edge padding to alleviate the pressure point on the ankles, while still maintaining flexibility and performance.
Eyelets/Facing: Hyperflex … Integrated flex zones built into the top four eyelets, helping to increase the wrap of the skate for more stability. Bauer reinforced the eyelets to improve overall durability.
Material: Carbon Curv Composite … High-quality composite material that delivers some of the industry’s best durability, performance, and molding capabilities.
Construction: 3D Lasted Two-Piece Boot with Hyperflex Outsole … 3D-molded skates with a composite boot and outsole to maximize energy transfer. The Hyperflex outsole is constructed with rigid material on the front, and denser material on the back for maximum energy transfer during acceleration.
Pure Hockey Recommendation: The Bauer Vapor HyperLite 2 skate offers a great combination of new tech and trusted features, providing players with a pair of flexible, lightweight skates that help to improve agility and flexibility with each stride. We recommend these skates to elite-level players who are on the ice several times per week.
