The Bauer Vapor 1X Lite is the next evolution in their Vapor line. Offering brand new technologies and to improve durability and all-around performance while improving on the sticks weight. This stick is perfect for players who love to take quick release shots, but with the new improvements it offers many appealing qualities for every player type. QRT Plus Technology is reinforced with asymmetrical layers of carbon fiber on the taper. This helps create a more versatile Vapor stick. The addition of this carbon fiber on the taper will improve performance during one times, hard passes, and slap-shots while maintaining quick release characteristics. The TeXtreme Shaft Technology creates a lightweight, responsive and durable stick. Bauer has incorporated Advanced Carbon Layering which uses thinner and stronger internal carbon fiber layers to reduce weight but also improve durability. The Monocomp construction is a true 1-piece construction which maximizes energy transfer from handle to blade. Unlike 2-piece sticks, this 1-piece allows for even more energy transfer for more powerful shots. Bauer uses eLASTech resin to help stop cracks from spreading once they occur and keep the stick feeling newer for a longer period of time.
