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 X800 is designed with dynamic speed in mind, and each piece of its construction is strategically chosen to enhance players’ on-ice performance.
The X800 is constructed using Bauer’s lasted 3D Curv Composite with X-Rib pattern. The Curv Composite gives a rigid structural stiffness to support the most powerful strides.
Comfort and fit are two main factors when choosing the right skate. The X800 features a series of securing technologies to ensure the best fit possible, and give players the opportunity to perform at their highest level. The FLEX-LOCK tongue creates a locked fit while allowing forward flex and adding additional protection to the foot’s most vulnerable area.
Inside the skate, the X800 has lightweight dual-density foam ankle pads covered by the LOCK-FIT 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 X800 is complete with Bauer’s now ultra-famous LightSpeed Edge holder in combination with LS2 steel. This combination gives skaters the ultimate edge and allows blades to be easily changed.
