The Bauer Vapor X2.9R inline skates built for the performance level player who skates 2-3 times a week and is looking for fit and performance but doesn’t want to spend at the top of the market price. 

  • PERFORMFLEX for support and thermoformability
  • FORM FIT+ footbed with lined with memory foam comfort
  • HI-LO Aluminum Chassis
  • Labeda Union Wheels

When choosing a new pair of skates, it is important to place a focus on 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. Bauer’s Vapor skate line features low-profile models, including the Vapor X2.9R, best suited for players with low-volume foot dimensions. Bauer implements its PERFORMFLEX System into the X2.9R, designed for better comfort, fit, and overall performance. 

Included in the PERFORMFLEX system is a 3D Lasted Tech Mesh quarter package. The benefits of such construction are support and thermoformability for an optimal fit and improved skating performance. Inside the boot, Bauer combines Comfort Edge and Aero Foam padding for added support, as well as some personalized comfort in the ankle thanks to the thermoformable properties of these technologies.

The Vapor Vapor X2.9R skate includes a hydrophobic microfiber liner and Bauer’s Form-Fit+ footbed. The liner is designed for a soft feel and holds moisture management properties to help wick sweat away and promote foot lockage in the boot. Additionally, the footbed is lined with memory foam to give a true comfort feel as soon as you step in the skate. 

The tongue is felt with an injected metatarsal guard for solid protection, comfort, and good flexibility when skating. 

Under the boot, a clear TPU, non-woven outer sole supports a Hi-LO aluminum chassis. This frame uses two 76-mm wheels in the front and two 80-mm wheels in the back, giving the skater an increased attack angle for more speed and control, using the advantages that come with both small and large wheels. 

Speaking of wheels, Bauer uses Labeda Unions. These wheels use a large injection-molded core for enhanced speed, combined with a soft compression apex ring for maximum grip and unmatched edge to edge feel. The result is a supremely fast wheel with great striding and stopping power.

With enough high-end technologies, the Vapor X2.9R is an excellent choice for the player looking for a performance skate at a mid-range price point.

SENIOR Hockey Skates
Senior hockey skates are sized to fit adults and full grown teenagers with a Men's US shoe size of 7 or greater.

JUNIOR Hockey Skates
Junior hockey skates are sized to fit kids in the range of approximately 8 to 12 years old with a US shoe size of 2 to 6.5.

YOUTH Hockey Skates
Youth hockey skates are sized to fit toddlers and young children in the age range of approximately 9 years old and younger with a US youth shoe size of 1.5 or smaller.

*Female Skaters*
The difference between men's shoes and women's shoes is 1.5 to 2 sizes. So, if you wear size 9 women's shoes, that translates to a men's size 7.5 or 7.0, which would put you in a size 6 senior hockey skate. More simply put, go 3 sizes down from your women's shoe size in order to find your hockey skate size.


Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skates so far! I've only had these a little over a month so far and have had about 5 or 6skates in them. These skates only took one skate to feel break in and feel great on my feet. For the price point I think it's an excellent hockey skate for all levels of play. The boot on these skates feels nice and firm and supportive while staying flexible for quick agile skating and accelerating while still providing excellent protection. Best bang for your buck in my opinion without breaking the bank on a more expensive model like the 2x or 2x Pro ranging anywhere from $700 to $1000..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Skates! I am really enjoying these skates, they are super comfortable while remaining very supportive. I have been out of the game for a while (nearly 20 years) and I am shocked by the leaps and bounds that skates have made in my absence from the sport. These have an incredible feel and are super smooth. Their comfort is top notch as it stands they seem very durable and offer great ankle support and good protection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome skates These are great skates and very comfortable right out of the box. I always have a really hard time with skate sizing. I wear a 10/10.5 in shoes and my ice skates are 6.5 Bauer Nexus (pretty snug, but I've come to love them). So a crazy difference. I got a 7.5 in these and they fit well with some room in the toe box. As a casual skater, these are a perfect skate for the price and a good value, especially considering the price difference for the next level up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Vapor Skates Only skated twice so far, but tough boot to break in, even with getting them baked. First skate was painful, second was much better leaving the laces a little looser. I wasn’t hesitant to switch to vapors since that’s my ice boot, but a way different feel coming from Tours. Not sure if it has to do with the frame. Undecided on how I feel about them with only skating twice but will review after this season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GEt EM!!! Great Skates. Finally chose to go with a top of the line skate and the boot made the difference!!.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skate, add outdoor wheels Skates are great. For the price, it would have been great if both indoor and outdoor wheels were included. The super soft wheels included are only usable on certain surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable, comfortable skates! Must buy! :) Great Skates!! Love them. So comfy. I’ve put them to good use to far. First ever pair of inline skates and I’m very satisfied worth the money.

How different is the fit and feel from the 2.7 and 2xr skates?

Asked by: JAY4114
The fit will be very similar when comparing each of those models. The higher-end boots will feel stiffer right out of the box and mold to your foot better. The extra stiffness will also help with ankle support and stability. Thanks!
