The Bauer S17 Vapor X900 ice hockey skate is designed for the elite-level player looking for a pro-performing skate, but who might not want to spend pro dollars, or does not need all the bells and whistles of a tippy-top-of-the-line item. The X900 offers enough elite features to satisfy the elite skater who demands a lot from their gear and needs the right skate to maximize their game each time out.

  • Tuuk LightSpeed Edge holder for trigger-quick blade replacement
  • Fully composite outsole for improved energy transfer and max power
  • 3-D Lasted Curv Composite quarter package for rigid performance
  • X-rib design for rear support and stability
  • Fully thermoformable boot for custom fit and comfort
  • FlexLock three-piece tongue for protection and security
  • Lock-Fit+ liner and footbed for tacky, locked-in feel

The Vapor X900 features the Tuuk LightSpeed Edge holder. The LightSpeed is the most popular holder in the NHL right now, thanks to Tuuk’s innovative trigger system that allows skaters to switch their blades in seconds, for more time on the ice and less time on the bench working on a skate. The LightSpeed is also three millimeters taller this year, so now skaters can get even further over their edges for a better turning radius on their Tuuk LS3 steel.

The X900 outsole is a full composite, something new to the X900 line this year. It’s lighter and stiffer than before, for improved energy transfer and maximum power in each stride. The outsole joins the 3-D Lasted Curv Composite quarter package, a boot that promises superior thermoformability—not only the shell, but also the interior foams will form to the foot when baked for a truly custom fit. The X900 also includes Bauer’s signature Vapor X-rib design for better stability and stiffness in the rear of the boot, and an anatomical heel and ankle core for a contoured fit without sacrificing any stiffness or stability. 

The X900 tongue is Bauer’s FlexLock, white felt, three-piece design. The FlexLock offers the same pro-level thickness and performance as the 1X skate, with an anatomical fit over the foot. And the injected, high-density center foams offer excellent protection from slashes, stray pucks, and lace bite–a problem with many low-volume fitted skates like the Vapors. But this year’s tongue is more flexible than last year’s X900. Now skaters can maximize their forward flex for improved power in the stride extension. The tongue also better locks the foot into the boot, to minimize any power loss associated with foot slippage inside.

Foot security and stability are further enhanced by Bauer’s Lock-Fit+, dual-zone grip liner. The liner is an abrasion-resistant material with two textures—a tacky upper for security and a softer lower for comfort. Under the liner lie thick, form-fit, memory foam ankle pads that mold to the foot during baking and provide even more custom comfort. And beneath it all is Bauer’s Lock-Fit+ Grip footbed, with more tacky texture in the heel and toe to help secure the elite-level skater’s foot into the boot, especially when combined with the liner and new tongue.

The X900, like all Vapor skates, is a low-volume skate. This means that if you have a narrow forefoot or shallow heel, the Vapor line will be the best fitting choice for you among all Bauer’s offerings. The X900 is a great choice for the elite-level skater looking for a lot of pro-level performance in a more traditionally styled boot. It’s not quite the 1X, but once you get them on your feet, you might not be able to tell the difference.

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 Fast Bought this a month ago and have never had such an easy time breaking in skates. Beware...these are fast!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great skates, great fit I bought these a little over a month ago, got them baked, the blades profiled, sharpened, and wore them game day without break-in, and they were comfortable. Four weeks later, and these skates have become one with my foot. I replaced the standard laces with wax laces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow Bought these today, baked them, put the new LS5 carbon steel in them, rockered 10/12, with a 9/16ths sharpening. All done at PHL. I put them in the freezer to speed up the forming process.. played a pickup game and instantly noticed a difference in acceleration and speed. These are the best bang for your buck! I was flying way faster than the Reebok 16ks could ever take me. Highly reccomend these skates

I've measured for an 11.5, but some associates have told me that I should buy an 11 if selecting the EE width. Is this true? Are the wider skates slightly longer in the toe?

Asked by: 19Mosey
I can't say what exactly is going on with your skates but I can offer a guess. You aren't feeling any extra length but you are sitting farther back in the skate because of the wider heel pocket. If the D is too narrow you can sit farther up in the heel pocket making the skate feel smaller. Try on both and make the choice that feels best for you. Thanks!

2013 Bauer Vapor x100's with LS5 and speed plate and CCM Jetspeed FT1's w/ Step Steel. I seem to actually have a better speed burst and agility w/the Vapors. My question: which 2017 model Vapor best matches the x100?

Asked by: Jay95
The Bauer X900 skate would be the closest model to the older X100 skates. They are both made from the carbon composite material and are both the model just under the top end skates. Thanks!
