Bauer has long had a commitment to innovation, and uses scientific methods and player feedback in combination with its state-of-the-art design lab to develop the most high-performance ice skates in the game. The new Bauer Vapor 1X is designed with dynamic speed in mind, and each piece of its construction is strategically chosen to enhance players on-ice performance.

The Bauer Vapor 1X is constructed using Bauers lasted 3D Curv Composite with X-Rib pattern and Comfort Edge padding. The Curv Composite gives a rigid structural stiffness to support the most powerful strides, and the Comfort Edge provides relief along the ankle collar, allowing players to dig deeper into turns.

Comfort and fit are two main factors when choosing the right skate. The Vapor 1X features a series of securing technologies to ensure the best fit possible, giving players the opportunity to perform at their highest level. The FLEX-LOCK PRO tongue is a slow-molding tongue insert that creates a locked fit while allowing forward flex and adding additional protection to the foots most vulnerable area. To further enhance the fit, Bauer employs LOCK-FIT facing, which is a slightly softer facing composition with greater lace locking properties. This allows the facing to better wrap the foot and provide the most secure fit.

Inside the skate, the Vapor 1X has lightweight memory foam ankle pads covered by the LOCK-FIT PRO liner. This liner locks your foot in place while keeping it dry, reducing foot slip and offering the most production from each stride.

Last, but definitely not least, the Vapor 1X is complete with Bauers now ultra-famous LightSpeed Edge holder in combination with LS4 steel. This combination gives skaters the ultimate edge and allows blades to be easily changed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skate I read the other review where the reviewer said the metatarsal protection was not as good as the X900. My son also has the X900 and we just went up to size Y13.0. He's correct that the tongue protection is different, but it's not worse...either same or better in the 1X. I still have his X900 and compared them. The 1X has a softer padding. However, it's much thicker than the X900 tongue. The padding area is extra thick. The X900 is firmer/harder, but feeling them both....there is no way the X900 has better protection in that area. Overall, I like the tongue padding improvement. Outside of that issue, it looks and feels (outside) like a great skate. He skates in them tonight for the first time. He says they feel great on his foot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the X900 I bought a size 12.5 to replace the X900 size 12 that my son currently skates in. To my surprise they were exactly the same size. Before getting these I thought they would be the same quality as the X900 or better considering the price tag. They seemed cheaper in my opinion. The metatarsal guard was really soft compared to the X900. I wouldn't want my son taking a shot in that area with these skates. I returned these and will continue with the X900.
