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 X900 shin guards are Bauer’s second-tier model in the Vapor line and will provide players with a high level of protection at a fraction of the price of the top-of-the-line 1X model. 

The most important new feature that was not found in last generation’s second-tier Vapor shin guards (X100 model) is AEROLITE technology. AEROLITE is an ultra-lightweight foam that is placed in key impact zones – such as the calf guard, knee wing, and thigh protector – to increase protection.

Bauer Vapor X900 shin guards are nearly as comfortable and flexible as the 1X model because they have a 3-strap attachment system with a top anchor strap. This includes two 1” Velcro straps on the top and bottom and one wide, mesh strap in the middle to keep the shin guards in place all game long.

Just like the top-of-the-line 1X shin guards, the X900s also have the 37.5® Liner. 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 pads to stay dryer and lighter during play because they won’t be absorbing sweat.

Bauer Vapor X900 shin guards have the most comparable fit style to Easton’s second-tier Synergy 850 shin guards.

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.
