Blockers don’t have much to differentiate themselves from others, let’s be honest, a blocker is a blocker. That being said, Bauer has tried to shake things up this time around to separate the Vapor 2X blocker from the competition. Featuring an Ax Suede Pro palm, one of the thinnest blocker boards on the market and Thermomax lining, the Bauer 2X intermediate has brought some new life to the blocker market.
Bauer uses their synthetic leather with C.O.R.Tech skin on the new 2X Pro blocker, this promotes harder, faster rebound than normal blocker skin. Having used this technology for the past few years, Bauer is confident it gives goalies the edge they need over the competition. This technology works by having a faster recovery rate than other skin types, the faster the recovery, the faster and harder the puck will come off.
The Bauer Vapor 2X blocker features an Ax Suede Pro palm, mixing comfort and performance. This is a softer material palm so it can be comfortable while also allowing great feel for the stick and finger mobility.
Side Hand Protection
The side board is composed of thin tapered Curv Composite and HD foams providing great protection and the ability to send rebounds far away from the net.
The Vapor 2X features a free flex cuff, allowing full range of motion and great control when playing the puck.
The hand protection is great on this blocker, with finger protection and large thumb protection, ensuring nothing gets to your palm or fingers. The side board also has a tapered area that will hug the stick, preventing puck from riding up your stick and hitting your fingers.
The blocker comes in a range of colours including white, red, blue and navy.
