BAUER HOCKEY, INC. - BAUER VAPOR APX2 Skate Hits RetailBauer Hockey is at it again with bringing out one of the finest products that this Coach has seen in a long time. With the “New Bauer Vapor APX2 Skate” this most recognizable sports company looks like there is no stopping them.

The company itself was founded in 1927 with home base in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and they have been developing hockey equipment and reinventing the way where only other companies can do is watch.  Since 1927 Bauer was the first sport company to develop a skate with a blade attached to a boot and now come 2013 they have developed a skate where the blade can be removed very easily, lets take a closer look at the new skate THE NEW BAUER VAPOR APX2 SKATE

Ok now, lets break this down a little more shall we. As the video mentions it features the TUUK LIGHTSPEED EDGE and a one piece stability lacing system to maximize power. The TUUK  LIGHTSPEED EDGE holder which includes a ‘trigger’  system that allows a player to change the blade on the fly! Well not on a fly but you know what I mean. So if a player needs to change the blade because a nick or crack or even a lost edge well now it’s now in a split second.

Any player at any level of play just needs to carry the extra set of blades or hopefully at the local pro shop will have them so you can slip one in and get back on the ice. The TUUK LIGHTSPEED EDGE is a standard feature at a variety of price points and will be on the Vapor X100, X90,X70 and X60. The holder can also easily be added to virtually any current skate, which is pretty cool!

Plus the new holder, why not put another new feature in the skate why your at it, right? The Vapor APX2 has the new one-piece lacing system which provides great stability throughout the life of the skate and has the explosive power transfer which reduces the amount of energy lost in each stride. So as a result the players can exit turns faster while increasing acceleration on the ice. Just imagine if Paul Coffey or Mike Gartner had these when they played, wow warp speed or want!

Some other additional features of the new Bauer VAPOR APX2 are also neat to see:

  • HYDRA-MAX 2 LINER: Moisture wicking and abrasion resistant with an integrated comfort wrap.  The Total Edge Comfort liner minimizes wear and tear around the top of the ankle, adding durability and comfort.
  • CURV® COMPOSITE UPPER: The X-rib design provides structural support and stability throughout the boot, allowing for faster acceleration and quicker turns.  The angle of the boot is cut aggressively to allow greater forward flex.
  • FORM-FIT+ FOOTBED: FORM-FIT+ performance with enhanced comfort in the toe area, including ERGO TOE-PROTECTION that can be customized to a specific player’s needs.
  • TUUK LS FUSION BLADE: Revolutionary runner design fusing the strength and performance of our elite stainless steel with high-grade aluminum, significantly reducing the weight of the runner.

 Can you say unbelievable! No wonder they have NHL stars like Alex Ovechkin, Claude Giroux and Evander Kane using these skates already, it brings them high performance, unprecedented level of speed, comfort and durability. What more can you ask for.
