Bauer’s 2016 Vapor protective line brings players their trademark tapered fit. This means that Vapor shin guards have a wider fit over the knees and a standard fit down through the lower portion of the shin. Vapor protective gear provides elite mobility without sacrificing protection or comfort. The 1X shin guards are Bauer’s top-of-the-line model in the Vapor line and will provide players with a pro level of protection.
The most important new feature that was not found in previous Vapor shin guards is the Curv® Composite shin shell 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 calf guard, knee wing, and thigh protector – 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 shin guards are the most comfortable and flexible shin guards in the line because of the Free Flex shin cap and liner. They use a two-strap system with wide, Velcro straps to keep the shin guards in place all game long.
The 1X shin guard 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 shin guards to stay dryer and lighter during play because they won’t be absorbing sweat.
Bauer Vapor 1X shin guards 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: Shin guards are measured best while the player is sitting. Using shin guards that are either too long or too short will result in the knee or instep being exposed and unprotected. Shin guards should be secured with shin guard straps or tape. To fit properly, first determine the level of play. Next, measure from the center of the kneecap to the top of the skate boot. Last, match the player’s shin size to the inches of shin guard.
