When purchasing a new pair of hockey skates, it is important to focus on fit. If you’re unsure which skate line or model fits your foot best, or if you want an accurate measurement and assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey.
The Bauer Vapor 3X Youth Skates are constructed for young hockey players but still include plenty of features to make this a great option at a lower price point. A key upgrade for this skate is the Digi-Comp MotionFlex boot providing good stability while allowing flexibility to help younger players bend their knees and have some ankle movement.
Inside the skate is the hydrophobic liner with Comfort Edge. This liner offers some good grip and moisture-wicking properties, helping to secure the foot into the boot, especially in the heel area. This locked-in technology helps to prevent the foot from sliding. With the foot secured in place, overall skating performance will be improved.
At the top of the skate, a 30oz Felt tongue with mesh metatarsal guard offers even more comfort, protection, and added flexibility to improve skating.
The 3X Youth Skate includes the Tuuk Lightspeed PRO II holder. This feature is also found in the higher end 3X Pro Youth skate, and offers enhanced energy transfer when striding by tightly securing the runner in place. For the runner, Bauer includes their TUUK Stainless Steel, providing good durability.
If you’re looking for a low-price point option for your young player, the Bauer Vapor 3X Youth skate is a great option, with many features to help improve skating and increase comfort during skill development.
