The Vapor protective line just got turned up a notch with the release of the Vapor 1X! The first protective line we've seen using carbon fiber inserts as the foundation for protection, these have to be the lightest and most protective elbow pads Bauer has ever made. For their Vapor 1X Hockey Elbow Pads, you'll find the Curv composite strapped across the bottom of your forearm, where most of those nasty slashes land. From there, you'll find their free flex cap construction linking the forearm guard to the elbow cap, enabling ample mobility and range of motion. The pad finishes the protective gauntlet with their familiar multi-segmented Aerolite foam bicep guard, which is light, pliable, and provides the protection you need.
The liner on the Vapor 1X has also been upgraded, with the 37.5 Tech Fabric getting some help from a new liner tech; Transfer Mesh. Bauer's Transfer Mesh encourages evaporation by maximizing airflow through the fabric by building a miniature suspension system that separates the fabrics allowing air to pass through more freely. Finally, a 3-strap system with their signature anchor strap secures the pad comfortably without restricting your range of motion.
