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 Pro Youth Skates are constructed for the young hockey player but still includes plenty of features found in higher-end Senior skates. The 3-D lasted digi-comp quarter package provides good stiffness but plenty of flexibility for the developing skater who needs to stay comfortable while on the ice.
For comfort Bauer uses memory foam padding for the ankles. This feature is lightweight which increases the thermoformability of the boot thanks to its molding properties. With this material around the ankles, your young player will be comfortable, and the boot will form to his foot for a better overall fit.
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 3X Pro Youth skate, Bauer includes a Classic Pro 40oz felt tongue. This tongue construction provides a lightweight, comfortable feel while also providing some good protection. Below the boot, Bauer combines the TUUK Lightspeed PRO II holder with the TUUK LS1 runners. The holder locks in the blade for good energy transfer when striding, and the LS1 runner offers solid edge life and durability.
It is important to find the right skates for youth players to help them stay comfortable on the ice as they begin to play more and develop their skills. The Bauer 3X Pro Youth skate is a great option, providing high-end technologies in a model tailored to help the young skater perform.
