These high-performance skates are designed to provide the quality and skill necessary for high intensity, high-level skating. The Vapors are a good option for someone looking to switch brands or move from recreational shoes to competitive. If you find yourself in situations that require quick, high-performance footwork and fast breakaway speed, the Bauer Vapor APX2 is a solid pick.
The APX2 gives your feet and ankles enough flexibility to make quick turns and impressive maneuvers. The Vented Carbon Composite that makes up the outsole provides the protection and maneuverability to make this a top of the line shoe. Another component of this shoe’s high-performance capabilities is the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge runners. One of the most important features of the Bauer Vapor APX2’s is the Tuuk LS Fusion Blade. These high tech, aluminum blades are more than 25% lighter than regular blades for easier maneuvering.
The APX2 do not sacrifice performance for comfort, though. The Hydra Max liner is a high comfort, moisture wicking padding to keep your feet dry and your performance up. Inside the boot, the toes are snugly held by the ErgoToe toebed. Designed for comfort, ErgoToe provides not only comfort but also protection. The Form-Fit tongue is made of Three Piece Pro Felt with an Abrasion Resistor for added protection from a puck glancing off the laces.
