The Bauer Vapor 2X Youth hockey skates offer many high-end technologies to help young players improve their skating skills while keeping them comfortable.
While the Vapor 2X Youth skate is constructed for the young hockey player, it still includes plenty of features found in higher-end Senior skates. The 3-D lasted fiber composite quarter package provides good stiffness, but plenty of flexibility for the developing skater who needs to stay comfortable while on the ice. For some added comfort, the quarter construction also includes Bauer’s Comfort Edge padding. This technology helps to improve support and the overall feel of the skate.
For even more comfort, the 2X Youth skate includes memory foam padding in the ankle area. This feature is lightweight and increases the thermoformability of the boot thanks to its molding properties. With this material around the ankles, your young player will be comfortable, and the boot will form to his foot for a better overall fit.
Also included inside the boot is the LOCK-FIT liner. This liner offers some good grip and moisture-wicking properties, helping to secure the foot into the boot, especially in the heel area. This locked-in technology helps to prevent the foot from sliding. With the foot secured in place, overall skating performance will be improved.
At the top of the 2X Youth skate, Bauer includes a 30-oz felt tongue with an HD foam metatarsal guard. This tongue construction provides a lightweight, comfortable feel while also providing some good protection. And below the boot, Bauer combines the TUUK Lightspeed PRO II holder with the TUUK LS1 steel. The holder locks in the blade for good energy transfer when striding, and the LS1 runner offers solid edge life and durability.
It is important to find the right skates for youth players to help them stay comfortable on the ice as they begin to play more and develop their skills. The Bauer 2X Youth skate is an excellent option for these players, providing high-end technologies in a model tailored to help the young skater perform.
