Skate Fit Profile
Vapor continues to be the best option for skaters with a low fit profile. While not as tight across the forefoot as previous generation Vapors, the fit is definitely snugger than Supreme or Nexus.
Boot Construction/Stiffness/Level of Play
Built for the competitive player, the X Velocity skate features Bauer’s 3D Polycarb composite material. This material is extremely lightweight, thermal-forming, and gives plenty of heel support.
Comfort Edge Padding offers comfort and helps reduce bite from the top of the boot when performing aggressive turns.
The X Velocity is designed with a focus on comfort and reduced break-in time. A hydrophobic microfiber liner gives you a soft feel and added comfort. Bauer also added more memory to the skate to really complete the comfort package.
The tongue is a 2-piece 48-ounce felt tongue with an exposed injected metatarsal guard. This tongue offers plenty of comfort, flex, and protection during every skate stride.
The X Velocity skate is equipped with Tuuk LS1+ Black steel. This is an upgraded steel that is coated to provide increased sharpening life with improved edge bite. This allows skaters drop to a shallower hollow to take advantage of increased glide while maintaining the same amount of control.
The holder used on the X Velocity is the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge with quick release trigger system. This holder is the number one holder used by NHL and professional players everywhere.
