The latest installment in the history of Bauer hockey sticks is the Bauer 1X, born out of the Vapor line. The Vapor 1X is the culmination of all of Bauer's best stick technologies, new and old. It features the classic Vapor low kick point, but also sports a new and improved look, as well as an all-new taper system from Bauer.
Bauer is consistently modifying and developing its stick technologies, looking for any way to improve performance. The Bauer Vapor 1X stick is the newest stick of their Vapor line and you will see that Bauer has updated the design several ways. First is Bauer's new Quick Release Taper (QRT) technology, which is a different look from past years. This taper from Bauer is aggressive to increase your shot quickness, giving you the ability to get off a wrist, snap, or even quick slapper with little effort. Bauer's Aero Sense 2 Blade is featured on the Vapor 1X, and this Sense Layer is fused to the actual TeXtreme composite of the blade to eliminate materials and lighten the weight of the blade. Just like in previous Vapor sticks, the Vapor 1X will feature Bauer's Pure Shot Blade Profile that describes the thickened hosel area that is meant to give your shots more support by eliminating the torsional rotation of the blade during a shot.
