Bauer Hockey has launched a new set of skates for inline hockey players with the all-new Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates leading the charge.
The Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates are designed for elite level players, and on paper, they mostly nail that. Let’s dive deeper in to look at the specs these skates will offer.
Starting up top, you’re getting a high quality Curv Composite boot with the Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates. It’s probably the best boot you can get in a roller hockey skate today. Not only are they great for energy transfer, but they are incredibly lightweight and form around your foot well with a quick baking.
The Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates also see a nice upgrade in the new one-piece lacing system. This new setup eliminates the traditional eyelets you may be used to in favor of a more unique eyelet shape that locks in your laces better and ultimately provides more lateral agility and forward flex.
Moving inside the boot of the Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates, you will find a hydrophobic grip liner with memory foam ankle pads. Comfort edge pads will return around the top collar to help provide additional comfort and protection. In front, a 48oz Pro Felt tongue with comfort padding is also included.
One of the biggest changes you’ll find on the Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates will be the new fit. In the past, the Vapor skate line had more of a narrow and low profile fit. Beginning with the 2022 line, the Bauer roller hockey skates will feature their Fit 2 shape with a medium width and medium volume inside the boot. Part of this update also includes an asymmetrical toe cap which has a more anatomical fit and provides a better connection and better energy transfer between your foot and the rink.
Beneath the boot of the Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates you will find a TPR Plastic midsole, and a composite outsole for energy transfer. Attached to this is a one-piece CNC Aluminum HiLo chassis. The chassis will be filled with Labeda Millenium Signature wheels, great for indoor sport court, and they’ll roll on Swiss HiLo bearings.
The Bauer Vapor 3X Pro roller hockey skates are currently available for purchase from our friends at Inline Warehouse. They will set you back $799.99 for a senior size, and $699.99 for junior sizes.
