In many ways, Vapor has long been the skate that all others are compared to. With countless pairs sold and overwhelming NHL use, the Vapor legacy is simply undeniable. The Bauer Vapor X90 provides pro-level stiffness and support with an iconic Vapor fit.
Consisting of a standard width through the toe box and forefoot with a low-volume, narrower fit in the heel and ankle, the X90 offers the lowest-volume fit overall when compared to its Supreme and Nexus counterparts. While the Vapor fit may not work for every foot type, those who do benefit from its fit characteristics often swear by its “second skin” fit and feel.
The X90 is built off Bauer’s Ultra-light tech mesh upper with classic Vapor X-rib design. Bauer has relied on Tech Mesh for years due to its amazing strength, durability, abrasion resistance, and heat molding capabilities. (Looking to replace your old Vapor XXX’s, XXXX’s or X:60’s, this is the boot for you!) The X-rib design has long been a distinguishing feature of Vapor skates, providing added structural support for faster acceleration and quicker turns.
The X90 features many refined comforts, making it as comfortable as it is dynamic. A HYDRA MAX Mesh liner is the same found on the higher-end X100 and provides a responsive, tactile feel and great heel lock - keeping you focused on the game, not your feet. The Form-Fit tongue consists of three pieces; a 48 oz. top piece helps provide great comfort, while two, slightly trimmer, 40 oz. portions on each side allow for better wrap and a closer fit. The tongue also features an integrated high density metatarsal guard, providing pro level protection from anything the game may throw your way.
The boot sits atop a Full Composite outsole with Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. The new holder design provides an added three millimeters of height allowing the skater to get lower to the ice for shaper, tighter turns without “bottoming out”, all while allowing runners to be changed out in seconds with the pull of a trigger. The new holder is complemented by Bauer’s trusted and proven Tuuk LS2 runner, which consists of high-quality stainless stain great durability and edge retention.
