Bauer’s 2016 Vapor protective line brings players their trademark tapered fit. This means that Vapor elbow pads have a wider fit over the biceps and a standard fit down through the forearm. Vapor protective gear provides elite mobility without sacrificing protection or comfort. The 1X elbow pads are Bauer’s top-of-the-line model in the Vapor line and will provide players with a pro level of protection and comfort.
The most important new feature that was not found in previous Vapor elbow pads is the Curv® Composite forearm guard with AEROLITE technology. This is a combination of a lightweight, rigid material (Curv®) and an ultra-lightweight foam (AEROLITE) that is placed in key impact zones – such as the bicep and forearm guards – to increase protection while reducing overall weight. Curv® Composite material is also found on the quarter package of the highly-successful, lightweight Vapor 1X skates.
Bauer Vapor 1X elbow pads are the most comfortable and flexible pads in the line because of the Free Flex construction with molded bicep guard. They use a three-strap system with a wide, mesh inner-elbow anchor strap to keep the pads in place all game long.
The 1X elbow pad offers Bauer’s trademark 37.5® Liner with transfer mesh. This liner is made of a new, breathable fabric that accelerates the sweat evaporation process by maximizing air flow through the equipment in key heat zones. This causes the elbow pads to stay dryer and lighter during play because they won’t be absorbing sweat.
Bauer Vapor 1X elbow pads have the most comparable fit style to Easton’s top-of-the-line Synergy GX model.
Vapor 1X protective padding features a tapered fit profile with a wider fit at the top and standard fit through the lower portion of the shin shell, shoulder, and elbow pads.
The integration of Curv® composite with AEROLITE technology increases protective properties in key impact zones and reduces overall weight.

Sizing Guidelines: Measure the length between the shoulder pad and the cuff of the glove. Match the player’s measured size to the size of the elbow pads by inches. Determine the level of play and the level of protection necessary. When fastened securely, there should be no gap between the pad and either the biceps extension of the shoulder pad or the cuff of the glove. The elbow pad should not slip or move while fastened. Players who wear a short cuff style glove should choose the longer model of elbow pad.
