The Bauer Vapor 3X shin guards include many benefits for the player who skates a couple times per week or less and is looking for quality protective equipment at a great value.
- Anatomically molded X-Lite shield cap.
- Max Sub molded calf guard.
- Anchor strapping system.
- ErgoDynamic Lab kneecap provides deeper fit.
- Thermomax sub liner for moisture-wicking comfort.
- MD foam thigh protector.
The 3X model includes many similar features to the higher-level 3X Pro, including an anatomical design for an enhanced overall fit. Bauer’s anatomical construction and new ErgoDynamic Lab kneecap provides a deep and natural, close-to-the-body fit to promote power with every movement.
The anatomically molded X-Lite shin cap provides excellent mobility. With this added range of motion, players can skate and maneuver without feeling too restricted by these shin guards.
For increased protection, Bauer includes some trusted technologies throughout the 3X shin guards. In the knee wing and thigh protector, Bauer uses MD foam pads for good coverage and protection at the top of the shin guard. And for the calf guard, molded PE provides quality impact resistance against blocked shots and slashes.
The 3X shin guard includes an anchor strap for the attachment system. This strap helps to secure the shin guard to your leg which ensures the protective features will stay in place, an important feature for every player. This strapping system also provides good comfort.
The interior of the Supreme 3X includes a comfort liner and their Thermomax Sub lining to keep the shin guards light while you play, and to help them dry out in between on-ice sessions.
Every player, regardless of level, can upgrade to top-end equipment like the Hyperlite shin guards if they are looking for high-end protection, comfort, and mobility. But if you’re a weekly player looking for a quality option at a lower price point, the Vapor 3X shin guards are a great choice.
