The Bauer Vapor XLTX ice skates are a rare and exclusive product made for Sports Excellence stores like Discount Hockey. They are an upgraded version of the lower-mid-range Vapor X500 model with features found in the upper-mid-range X700 model. The XLTX skates are best suited for players who want an advanced-level skate at an affordable price point.
Bauer Vapor skates have a tapered fit, which means they have a snug fit in the heel and a standard fit through the forefoot. Vapor skates are the most popular fit type amongst NHL players.
The XLTX skates are upgraded to have the X700's HYDRA MAX liner to keep the player's feet dry and in place. The X600 TPU woven outsole provides a stiffer and more responsive connection between the boot and the holder. Then, the X600 40oz 2-piece tongue with padding provides great protection when blocking shots. Last, the X700 LS1 steel holds an edge longer than the stock Super Stainless steel.
The 2017 Vapor XLTX skates carry over some of the same great features from the X500 model, such as the TrueForm polyurethane quarter package, anaform ankle pads, and EVA comfort foam footbed. These features are good quality and will last the player several years of usage.
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.
Players looking for a great pair of skates without the price tag should pick up the Bauer Vapor XLTX skates from Discount Hockey today!
