An upgraded tongue provides better comfort and protection with 48 oz. white felt and metatarsal padding on the front of the tongue also helps protect the foot from lace bite and allows the laces to slide up and down the tongue without binding. The ankle padding of the skates features anaform foam to offer a better and more comfortable fit after a heat-mold.
Another upgraded feature, the Hydra Max liner wicks away moisture from your foot to keep you cool and dry. The outsole is upgraded to clear TPU with PET film for an improved graphic and additional rigidity. This is the same outsole as used on the Bauer X700 skates. Lastly, upgraded Tuuk LS1 steel from the X700 provides a longer lasting sharpening and better edges than the Tuuk Super Stainless steel the Bauer X500 comes with.
Source Exclusive upgrades include a Hydra Max liner, a 48oz. felt tongue with metatarsal padding, a clear TPU outsole with sublimated graphic and a changed abrasion pad inside the boot and an updated graphic to match the Bauer Vapor X900.
