Pure Hockey knows the importance of buying the right skates for your game, and it all starts with fit. If you’re unsure which skate line and model fits your foot best, or if you’re looking for an accurate measurement and assessment, visit your local Pure Hockey. The Vapor line is Bauer’s low-profile fit, ideal for the players with low-volume foot dimensions.
The Vapor X2.5 fit is enhanced through a one piece 3D Polycarb quarter package and a TPR outsole. The quarter package provides a solid fit in the ankle and heel and offers good comfort for the beginner or casual player, while the outsole gives the skate more flexibility for ease-of-use, an important feature for the new hockey player who might not yet need a very stiff boot for performance.
Inside the boot, Bauer includes memory foam padding around the ankles for increased support. This material gives you the feel you want in a key area, helping to keep you comfortable as you develop your skills on the ice. And the microfiber liner, also found in the X2.7 model, offers added comfort throughout the skate.
The X2.5 also includes a 30-oz. felt tongue for increased protection and comfort at the top of the skate; the Lightspeed Pro II holder to lock in your blade; and the Tuuk S stainless steel runner for added durability.
If you’re a recreational player or new to the game of hockey, you certainly aren’t restricted to this price point and level. If you want the top technologies and performance features that Bauer has to offer, resulting in more comfort, a better fit, and improved performance, it is certainly worth it to consider a higher end Vapor model like the 2X. But if you’re looking for an affordable and comfortable skate that offers good features at a great value, the Bauer Vapor X2.5 is a great option.
