The Bauer Vapor X2.7 Junior goalie catch glove makes it clear that Bauer is looking to dominate the budget gear market. Staying comfortable with a one piece glove and 60-degree break angle, adding a max depth pocket, this glove is comfortable to use right off the shelf.
Wrapped in upgraded synthetic materials with the goal to improve how hard rebounds pop of the blocker as well as improve the longevity of the gear.
The glove stays comfortable and consistent with a 60 degree break, same as what was used on the 1X. This angle used by Bauer is more of a finger-close style, meaning when closing the glove, it is almost all in the fingers, this allows the glove to be more protective on the palm and minimize the amount of stingers you’ll get
The new Bauer X2.7 Goal Catcher has gone back to the single T design, different from the split T on the 1X and the double T on the 2S promoting the glove to close faster and easier. Bauer has also created a new max depth pocket to allow the glove to trap and keep any pucks sent its way with ease.
The strapping now has Bauer's Fast Strap system allowing the user to quickly tighten their glove for maximum comfort and control.
The new Vapor X2.7 goalie glove is meant to be more comfortable and easier to use by having their free flex back hand, this allows playing the puck easier while also allowing more mobility in general.
The glove comes in a range of colours including white, red, blue and navy.
