The Vapor X600 ice hockey skate by Bauer is packed with some elite-level features that will impress the performance-level, intermediate skater. Upgrades in the footbed, quarter package, and protective foams make the X600 a competitive offering at this price point.

  • Tuuk LightSpeed Edge holder for trigger-quick blade changes
  • TPR injected outsole for enhanced rigidity and efficient energy transfer
  • Fiber composite quarter package for lighter, stiffer performance
  • Foam center injected tongue for enhanced foot and lace bite protection
  • AnaForm interior ankle pads for thermoformable customization

The Vapor X600 features the Tuuk LightSpeed Edge holder—the most popular holder in the NHL right now, thanks to Tuuk’s innovative trigger system. This trigger system allows for ultra-quick blade changes, which means more time spent on the ice and less time on the bench fiddling with a skate. The holder is now 3 millimeters taller, allowing players even more edge maneuverability. Beneath it all are Tuuk’s Super Stainless Steel model blades.

The Tuuk holder joins an injected TPR outsole that includes a center indentation for enhanced stiffness and rigidity, allowing a more efficient transfer of energy. The TPR outsole supports the fiber composite quarter package—a big upgrade over the X500 quarter. This composite quarter is 25 grams lighter than the previous X600, making this year’s model both lighter weight and stiffer.

The boot features Vapor’s one-piece heel and ankle core designed to work with the X-rib design on the back of the boot, increasing its stiffness and adding support for better stability. The tongue in the X600 is a 40-ounce, two-piece white felt tongue with nice thickness, traditional in both fit and feel. It includes a thick strip of high-density foam down the center that protects the top of the foot and helps position the laces optimally to reduce lace bite.

The X600 interior features AnaForm ankle pads that are both thick and thermoformable. The foams and outer shell will bake for a fully customized fit and feel. The hydrophobic microfiber liner is soft to the touch and effectively wicks away moisture and sweat from the foot for dry comfort. The foot bed is an upgraded form-fit, molded EVA that promises thick support. Like all Vapor skates, the X600 is a low-volume skate, meaning it’s great for players with a narrow foot and a shallow heel.

The X600 is a nice combination of features and performance for the discerning intermediate, performance-level skater who appreciates some of the finer points in skate construction, but prefers not to shell out a lot of money for them.

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 3 out of 5 by from Decent skate but not good value These are nice skates as all Bauer skates are well made.... however I would say this price point doesn't make sense for Bauer. I had these skates for a few skates and the tongue was too thin for my liking making it kinda uncomfortable when tying the laces tight...If you are going to buy these you should just spend the extra 70 dollars and go with the x700. You get much better features with those with a thicker tongue, better steel and a nicer liner (overall way more comfort)...I feel like you don't get much for the over 300 dollars on the X600....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love these skates! I am so happy that I bought these skates. They are very light, they fit well, and they are so cool! The only minor problem (for me) is that they are difficult to tie tightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit!! Tried the skate lab and it suggested these were the best fit. I can tell the difference. Very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit for narrow, thin feet My son and daughter have very thin and narrow feet- both kids, ages 12 and 14, say these are the most comfortable and best-fitting skates they’ve had. They are lightweight and have a replaceable blade, so felt they were a great value
