The Bauer Vapor X2.7 Youth hockey skates are an affordable option that provides young players with some solid features and good comfort.
- One piece 3D Polycarb quarter for more flexibility
- Memory foam padding for added support
- Microfiber liner for good comfort
- Tuuk Lightspeed PRO II holder for a locked-in runner
The X2.7 Youth skate uses Bauer’s COMFORTFLEX system, consisting of some high-quality technologies to help young players perform better on the ice as they work on their game. A key feature included in this system is the One piece 3D Polycarb quarter package. This construction offers a good fit in the ankle and heel to secure the foot without sacrificing comfort, while also providing more flexibility and a lightweight feel.
Inside the boot, Bauer combines memory foam padding with a Microfiber liner. The memory foam is strategically placed in the ankle area to wrap the foot in quality comfort, while the liner provides good support and some added comfort as well throughout the skate. At the bottom of the boot is Bauer’s Die Cut EVA footbed, providing good support for this price point.
At the top of the skate, a 40-oz. two-piece tongue with injected metatarsal guard offers even more comfort, protection, and added flexibility to improve skating.
The X2.7 includes the Tuuk Lightspeed PRO II holder. This feature is also found in the higher-end 2X 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 X2.7 Youth skate is a great choice, with many features to help improve skating and increase comfort during skill development.
