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 skates in the game. The new Vapor X500 is designed with dynamic speed in mind, and each piece of its construction is strategically chosen to enhance players’ on-ice performance.
The X500 is constructed using Bauer’s reinforced Trueform tech PU with X-Rib pattern. This construction offers great flexibility while remaining strong and supportive.
Inside the skate, the X500 has anaform foam ankle pads covered by a hydrophobic microfiber liner. This liner helps wick moisture and keeps your foot secure for maximum stride output. An anatomical 2-piece 40oz felt tongue works with a metatarsal guard to help protect the foot’s most vulnerable areas.
Last, but definitely not least, the X500 is complete with Bauer’s now ultra-famous LightSpeed Edge holder in combination with the TUUK super stainless steel runner. This combination gives skaters a competitive edge and allows blades to be easily changed.
