If your kid is one of those elite youth skaters who will benefit from all the performance and comfort of a top-shelf skate, the Bauer Vapor 1X youth ice hockey skate might be the right choice. Based on the 1X senior skate, the Vapor 1X youth skate offers many of the same features your young phenom is going to want.

  • Injected PE quarter package with PU mesh for pro-level performance and stiffness, with thermoformable, custom fit
  • Black Thruster TPR outsole for stiff support
  • 7 mm. pro-styled tongue for maximum comfort and lace bite protection
  • Unwaxed Vapor laces for locked-in security
  • HydraMax2 microfiber liner with Comfort Edge collar wrap for grippy, dry comfort
  • AnaForm ankle padding for locked-in comfort
  • Tuuk LightSpeed Pro holder for pro-styled durability and performance
  • EVA footbed for contoured comfort

The 1X youth skate comes with the Tuuk LightSpeed Pro holder and LightSpeed LS1 blade. Though the blade isn’t replaceable, the Pro holder is modeled after the LightSpeed Edge holder, the most popular holder in the NHL. The durable Tuuk LS1 stainless steel blade gives the aggressive youth skater the bite needed for excellent control and a tight turn radius.

The holder joins Bauer’s Black Thruster TPR outsole. An injected outsole, the Black Thruster TPR offers class-leading stiffness for maximum energy transfer through the stride so youth skaters will experience reduced power loss and and enjoy excellent support.

The quarter package on the 1X youth skate is Bauer’s Injected PE with PU Mesh. This injected quarter package gives the youth skater elite-level performance, thanks to its pro-level stiffness in all areas of the boot. The boot stiffness will help young skaters stay upright and transfer stride energy through the boot, for maximum stride performance. The quarter package is also fully thermoformable. Youth skaters will enjoy a contoured, custom fit and feel in the 1X youth skate after the baking process. 

The tongue is a white felt, 7 mm. pro-styled tongue with lots of thickness for maximum comfort and flexibility. It will do a great job locking in the young skater’s foot, and offers excellent protection against slashes, stray pucks, and lace bite. The tongue also features Bauer’s unwaxed laces that won’t slip, further securing the young skater’s foot inside the boot.

The 1X liner is Bauer’s HydraMax 2 model, made in a microfiber material. The HydraMax 2 is constructed with a tacky grip that helps secure the skater’s foot in the boot and wicks away moisture for a dry, comfortable fit. The liner also features a Comfort Edge collar wrap to help prevent ankle abrasions for young players who spend a lot of time on the ice. AnaForm ankle pads deliver maximum protection and a customized fit for pro-styled performance. Finally, the footbed in the Vapor 1X youth skate is Bauer’s shaped EVA model. The EVA foams are contoured to match the natural shape of the foot, and offer the perfect support and fit an elite youngster will appreciate.

Lots of kids dream of NHL greatness. The Bauer Vapor 1X youth skate will excite the young, elite-level skater with its pro-level performance features. With a top-end quarter package and liner, the 1X is the right skate to kick the elite youth skater into overdrive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skate I read the other review where the reviewer said the metatarsal protection was not as good as the X900. My son also has the X900 and we just went up to size Y13.0. He's correct that the tongue protection is different, but it's not worse...either same or better in the 1X. I still have his X900 and compared them. The 1X has a softer padding. However, it's much thicker than the X900 tongue. The padding area is extra thick. The X900 is firmer/harder, but feeling them both....there is no way the X900 has better protection in that area. Overall, I like the tongue padding improvement. Outside of that issue, it looks and feels (outside) like a great skate. He skates in them tonight for the first time. He says they feel great on his foot.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not as good as the X900 I bought a size 12.5 to replace the X900 size 12 that my son currently skates in. To my surprise they were exactly the same size. Before getting these I thought they would be the same quality as the X900 or better considering the price tag. They seemed cheaper in my opinion. The metatarsal guard was really soft compared to the X900. I wouldn't want my son taking a shot in that area with these skates. I returned these and will continue with the X900.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard Hard that’s why it supports my son’s ankle from getting hurt. I recommend this model
