2017 Bauer Vapor XR500 Inline Skates
The 2017 Bauer Vapor XR500 inline 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 X500s when creating the 2017 XR500 skates. First, they ditched the tech nylon and are now using a reinforced Trueform polyurethane (PU) quarter package to improve boot stiffness and durability. Next, Bauer now uses a 1-piece injected heel and ankle core for better foot and ankle stability.
The 2017 Vapor XR500 skates carry over some of the same great features from the 2015 model. They both 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. Last, the 2-piece felt tongue still comes with metatarsal padding to lower the risk of injury when blocking shots.
