The Vapor X900 features the Tuuk LightSpeed Edge holder. The LightSpeed is the most popular holder in the NHL right now, thanks to Tuuks innovative trigger system that allows skaters to switch their blades in seconds, for more time on the ice and less time on the bench working on a skate.
The LightSpeed is also three millimeters taller this year, so now skaters can get even further over their edges for a better turning radius on their Tuuk LS3 steel. The X900 outsole is a full composite, something new to the X900 line this year. Its lighter and stiffer than before, for improved energy transfer and maximum power in each stride. The outsole joins the 3-D Lasted Curv Composite quarter package, a boot that promises superior thermoformabilitynot only the shell, but also the interior foams will form to the foot when baked for a truly custom fit.
The X900 also includes Bauers signature Vapor X-rib design for better stability and stiffness in the rear of the boot, and an anatomical heel and ankle core for a contoured fit without sacrificing any stiffness or stability. The X900 tongue is Bauers FlexLock, white felt, three-piece design. The FlexLock offers the same pro-level thickness and performance as the 1X skate, with an anatomical fit over the foot. And the injected, high-density center foams offer excellent protection from slashes, stray pucks, and lace bitea problem with many low-volume fitted skates like the Vapors.
But this years tongue is more flexible than last years X900. Now skaters can maximize their forward flex for improved power in the stride extension. The tongue also better locks the foot into the boot, to minimize any power loss associated with foot slippage inside.Foot security and stability are further enhanced by Bauers Lock-Fit+, dual-zone grip liner. The liner is an abrasion-resistant material with two texturesa tacky upper for security and a softer lower for comfort. Under the liner lie thick, form-fit, memory foam ankle pads that mold to the foot during baking and provide even more custom comfort. And beneath it all is Bauers Lock-Fit+ Grip footbed, with more tacky texture in the heel and toe to help secure the elite-level skaters foot into the boot, especially when combined with the liner and new tongue. The X900, like all Vapor skates, is a low-volume skate.
This means that if you have a narrow forefoot or shallow heel, the Vapor line will be the best fitting choice for you among all Bauers offerings. The X900 is a great choice for the elite-level skater looking for a lot of pro-level performance in a more traditionally styled boot. Its not quite the 1X, but once you get them on your feet, you might not be able to tell the difference.
