2017 Bauer Vapor X600 Ice Skates
The 2017 Bauer Vapor X600 ice skates are the mid-range model in the Vapor line and will give players a good level of performance, comfort, and durability at a great price. Vapor skates have a tapered fit, which means they are very snug in the heel, have a standard fit through the forefoot, and are the most popular skates amongst NHL players.
Bauer improved on a few aspects of last generation’s X600s when creating the 2017 X600 skates. First, they ditched the tech-mesh nylon and are now using a fiber composite upper quarter package. Next, Bauer now uses a 1-piece injected heel and ankle core for improved foot and ankle stability. Last, there is high-density (HD) foam on the tongue for improved metatarsal protection. Players using the 2017 X600 skates should no longer fear getting in front of shots, thanks to this high quality padding.
The 2017 Vapor X600 skates carry over some of the same great features from the 2015 model. They come equipped with a hydrophobic microfiber liner to ensure the player’s feet stay dry and comfortable during play. The anaform foam ankle pads provide comfort during sharp turns and crossovers.
Bauer continues to use the TUUK LightSpeed Edge holders that are designed and developed to provide a greater angle of attack through 3mm overall height increase. Players will benefit from sharper, tighter turns without “bottoming out.” The TUUK LightSpeed Edge holders also feature an innovative trigger system that allows players to change steel in seconds without missing a shift. The removable trigger also allows players to upgrade the included Super Stainless runners with higher quality LS3 or LS4 models, if desired.
