The Bauer Vapor family has always been a top seller. The Bauer Vapor X900 Skate is only one small step down from the premier Vapor 1X skate. New features include Bauer's LS3 Steel and an updated version of the X-Rib Curv Composite Boot, which has been aluminized. Bauer introduces some of its industry-leading technology that has been teased in the Bauer OD1N Project. The first benefit we find from the OD1N project is right here in the boot of the Vapor X900 hockey skate. Carrying over from the APX2 is the TUUK Lightspeed Edge Holder.

Bauer Vapor X900 Hockey Skates Features


Our OD1N Technology in the Vapor X900 hockey skate boot, which not only features a tweaked X-Rib molding pattern, but it also features an Aluminized Curv Composite that, because of the aluminum layer, is now the lightest boot Bauer has offered! The X-Rib pattern has always been designed to maximize support and stability and has now been tweaked to better lock your heel and ankle in place. The Vapor X900's improved heel and ankle lock allow you to turn even tighter and crossover quicker for better acceleration. One of the bigger changes from last year's Vapor line is the new LS4 steel which is taking the place of LS Fusion steel. LS3 Runners come stock with the same familiar radius found on LS2 and LS Fusion, but with 3 mm of additional height. Feedback from their Pro athletes saying that elite-level players are looking for a taller, higher quality steel that will hold an edge better and provide a greater attack angle spurred this switch. The added height also improves the longevity of the runner and allows players to customize the profile without significantly diminishing the sharpening life. LS3 was designed to fit all those parameters.

SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men's US shoe size of 7 or greater.

JUNIOR Hockey Skates
Junior hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 8 to 12 years old with a US shoe size of 2 to 6.5.

YOUTH Hockey Skates
Youth hockey skates are sized to fit toddlers and young children in the age range of approximately 9 years old and younger with a US youth shoe size of 1.5 or smaller.

*Female Skaters*
The difference between men's shoes and women's shoes is 1.5 to 2 sizes. So, if you wear size 9 women's shoes, that translates to a men's size 7.5 or 7.0, which would put you in a size 6 senior hockey skate. More simply put, go 3 sizes down from your women's shoe size in order to find your hockey skate size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Performance Skate! I upgraded my 8 yr old sons skate from a Baur Vapour X60 to a Vapour X900, incredible difference in performance!! He skates so much faster! I could not believe that there could be that noticeable of a difference to be honest...a little pricey, but well worth the money!
