Bauer rolls out the new Vapor Hyperlite protective series for the 2022 season. The shin guards are equipped with an X-Lite Shield cap and ergodynamic design, Hyperlite HD foam, Dynaflex anchor straps, a Thermocore Zero liner, and EXOLite skin on the calf and calf guard. With the new Hyperlite line of protectives, Bauer continues to develop an ideal line for the most agile out on the ice.

Shin Protection
The Vapor Hyperlite shin guards stick to the anatomically molded X-Lite Shield cap, as seen in the 2X series. This cap design contours around the leg for a closer fit, giving you better protection, a comfier feel, and a deeper fit. This innovation overall will help keep you nimble on the ice.

Knee Cap & Protection
Bauer sticks to the Ergodynamic Lab knee for the Vapor Hyperlite shin guards because it gives a deeper fit for more protection, along with a comfier feel. On agility-based equipment, a closer fit is ideal since it can reduce more potential wind resistance.

Calf Protection
The Vapor Hyperlite shin guards are outfitted with EXOLite skin on the calf and calf guard. EXOLite skin is known for its amazing ability to absorb impact energy, which is why you’ll find it across the entire Hyperlite collection. Most shin guards won’t protect this area to the extent of including a shield here. EXOLite material is good because it adds protection without sacrificing any mobility to do so.

Liner
The liner is Bauers’ upgraded Thermocore Zero, designed not only to wick away moisture and repel odour but also to allow for enhanced airflow, so you can keep cool while playing. The liner itself is completely removable if you want some extra space in the knee cap area.

Strapping
Like the elbow pads, the Vapor Hyperlite shin guards use Dynaflex anchor straps to hold the pads steady along the upper portion of your leg. The calf strap itself that holds the lower portion is a tough Tunefit strap, ensuring comfort and stability while you play. Dynaflex is softer than Tunefit, but it is still just as strong.

Sizes
The Vapor Hyperlite Senior shin guards come in 15”, 16”, and 17” sizes. Refer to the size guide for instructions on how to size shin guards. If you’re looking for a smaller size, the Hyperlite shin guards also come in Intermediate and Junior sizes.

Bauer Hockey Shin Guards Sizing Chart


Player Shin Guard Sizing Information

When sizing a shin pad, you must determine first if you will wear the shin pad over top of the skate tongue, or if the skate tongue will sit in front of shin pad and “flop” forward. This will determined the length of the shin pad you will want.

Your knee should fit directly into the center of the kneecap, which is usually lined and padded to help direct it and provide comfort. Once the pad is strapped to your leg, it should be secure and snug and should NOT be able to twist rotate or slide freely. There are many strapping systems offered and you must decide what you like and dislike. On some models you will find anchor straps or thicker straps which can offer a better more secure fit. Anchor straps are made up of a stretchy knit material and usually fasten above or below the calf muscle. These straps are designed to anchor the pad in place and not allow it slide up or down. Thicker straps across the calf wrap/guard are also often used, these straps help provide full protection to your leg ensuring that the calf guard reaches across your leg.

Keep in mind that as you go up in price you will usually see more adjustments, options and higher density foams and technologies used. You must determine within your budget, which shin pad offers the most features that you want, as well as provides the most comfort.

Sizing a Shin Pad over top of your Skate Tongue:
To size a shin pad correctly when fitting over top of your skate tongue, measure the length (in inches) of your leg from the middle of your knee cap, when it is bent at a 90 degree angle, to the top of the boot of the skate. Once you have this measurement, round the number up to the next whole number (i.e. 13.2” becomes 14”). Because the shin pad is sitting over top of the skate tongue, it enables your to wear a slightly bigger pad without compromising mobility. This is usually seen as an upside because you get extra protection in areas like the tongue of your skate.
If you are sizing a player and want to include growth room, we do recommend this method as well, because it allows for a bigger pad to be worn, again without compromising motion or mobility.

Sizing a Shin Pad underneath your Skate Tongue:
To size a shin pad correctly when fitting over top of your skate tongue, measure the length (in inches) of your leg from the middle of your knee cap, when it is bent at a 90 degree angle, to the top of the boot of the skate. Once you have this measurement, round the number down to the next whole number (i.e. 13.7” becomes 13”). Because the shin pad is shipping underneath the skate tongue, the pad will not be able to sit right against the edge of the skate and thus a slightly shorter shin pad is used. If a shin pad that is too big is tried on, you will notice that the shin pad is shifted up and the kneecap falls out of the designated spot. If this happens your shin and knee will not be properly protected and you are more susceptible to having your shin pad rotate or more as well.

Compare your height, weight and age to the charts provided to find your best fit. As well, use the measurement that was taken above to compare to the provided charts. Another good estimation is to look at your old/existing shin pads to see what size they are. If you are growing and have outgrown them, then next size up is probably for you. If you liked the way your shin pads felt, it may be smart to continue with the same size.
