The Bauer Vapor X Shift Pro YTH Hockey Skates are a Source For Sports exclusive skate made for performance hockey players. It features upgrades from the higher end model skates packed in at a margin of the cost. The new lightweight Digital Composite quarter package mixed with the Motion Flex facing provides great support and flexibility for the youth player. The X shift pro is a perfect choice for the young guns looking for a snazzy high quality skate.
Skate Fit Profile
Vapor continues to be one of the most popular choices for our youth demographic. The Vapor X Shift pro offers a low volume and slightly narrower foot profile which we have noticed to be common in our future NHLers. The X Shift Pro also has a snug heel fit which adds great stability for all levels of players.
Boot Construction & Stiffness Profile
New to the Vapor X Shift Pro is the Digital Composite quarter boot. The construction is slightly softer than the junior sizes. They have also implemented MotionFlex technology from the Vapor 3x to increase the forward flex of the boot. This forward flex is imperative for younger players when developing their skating strides and building good technique.
Liner & Internal Padding
The X Shift pro Youth skate features the new 1 Piece Hydrolite Liner and lightweight memory foam ankle pads with moldable properties for great comfort. The Hydrolite liner keeps moisture to a minimum for peak performance. It also offers Comfort Edge lining along the top of the boot to nullify bites when stopping or performing tight turns.
The tongue found on the X Shift Pro is a 40 oz felt tongue. It also provides a metatarsal guard woven into the middle to provide protection and comfort against lace bite.
The X Shift Pro comes with the Lock Fit insole. This sole helps increase the forward flex of the skate and grips your foot to the bed of the boot. This allows you to increase the control and blade contact you have while skating.
The X Shift Pro Youth skate comes with a standard eyelet lacing system.
Steel Runner, Holder & Blade Profile
The Vapor X Shift Pro comes standard with a Lightspeed Pro 2 holder and Lightspeed 1 steel combo. Although this combination does not allow you to replace the steel like the senior/intermediate/junior models, the lightspeed 1 holder is the top blade you can get in youth sizing.
Like the 3x Pro and other models in the Vapor line, the X Shift Pro follows the traditional Vapor look we come to love. The graphic transitions from dark to lighter grey top to bottom. Complementing this is a vibrant red comfort edge liner that pulls everything together quite nicely.
