Details

The focus of the Vapor series of sticks from Bauer continues to be about puck handling and quick release shots. In order to optimize the load and recoil energy in the lower part of the shaft, Bauer has re-engineered the flex profile to include an aggressive taper that they are referring to as their QRT (Quick Release Taper) Technology. This technology replaces the dual flex zone Intelli-Sense Flex Technology that was featured in the previous Vapor lines that were headlined by the APX 2, APX and X:60 models. Among the many different testing protocols that Bauer's R&D team uses to develop their sticks, there was one test that was particularly interesting. They created a way to place sensors on their test sticks in order to gauge on-ice behaviors, specifically the measurements of flex, load and recoil energy. This test helped them engineer the Vapor 1X in such a way that optimizes the quick release of the players shots, in fact, their results showed that it loads 20% faster and recoils 28% quicker than the APX 2. These measurable and marked improvements may be why Bauer is referring to the Vapor 1X as a Difference Maker.

The Vapor 1X is a true one-piece stick. Just like top of the line Supreme and Nexus models, Bauer uses a single molding process they call Monocomp technology which allows them to remove excess material all while improving balance and performance consistency. Other shared features that are exclusive to Bauer's highest end models are TeXtreme® technology and the eLASTech resin system. TeXtreme® is a strong carbon fiber that is 20% lighter than conventional carbon, so it reduces weight in the stick without sacrificing strength. In the Vapor 1X, it is an eye-catching silver color and is distinctly recognizable by its large checker board-like pattern. The eLASTech resin system enhances durability by adding reinforcements in the resin that help reduce the spread of micro-fractures and helps extend the life of the sticks "pop". The Micro Feel II shaft profile is unchanged and has rounded corners and double-concave walls which allows the shaft to fit comfortably into your hands, resulting in easier puck handling and superior control. The 1X is available in a nice matte finish, or with the Griptac finish.

The blade of the 1X is the other main area of evolution in comparison to its Vapor predecessors. It features Bauer's AERO-SENSE 2 technology. This is a complex lightweight combination of a dual density AERO FOAM 3 core and an evolved SENSE layer that work together to dampen vibration and improve durability. Durability stitches create excellent adhesion between the core, the SENSE layer and the silver TeXtreme® blade wrap. Additionally, this entire Vapor line includes Bauer's Pure Shot Blade Profile which is that visible expanded throat design that reduces the amount of blade deflection or the twisting / opening of the blade while shooting. The end result of all this is a blade that is lightweight and durable yet offers excellent feel, playability and performance.

The Vapor 1X is arguably the lightest stick we have come across, but it's not really a mystery when you think about it. In addition to their other functions, the following technologies/designs (discussed above) contribute to the light weight of this stick: aggressive shaft taper (QRT), one-piece construction (Monocomp), carbon fiber wrap (TeXtreme®), shaft geometry (Micro Feel II) and blade core (AERO-SENSE 2). That's a lot of factors weighing in (no pun intended) on the overall weight of this stick!

The Vapor 1X is loaded with Bauer's best stick technologies and includes significant improvements over its predecessor. It is poised to be a Difference Maker - make it yours today.

top notch stick

in terms of durability and performance the best stick I ever purchased, and possibly in terms of bang for the buck- the best hockey stick ever manufactured.

piece of trash, get a stealth cx instead

I got this stick in conjunction with an ccm ribcor for the beginning of this season. Lucky for me, the 1x broke within a month. while i had it, i noticed that the blade was extremely soft and terrible for shooting as a result. Obviously it is not durable at all and i found it quite bulky and heavy. On the other hand, my ribcoris still running strong despite the heavy abuse it has had to take and i plan on getting a reckoner as soon as possible. Avoid the 1x at all costs

beauty of a twig

This stick is absolutely amazing. It has amazing pop, weight, and look. After I purchased this stick I bought the Stealth CX and it doesn't even come close to the 1X like at all. So 10/10 I'd recommend it to everyone up to and including toddlers.

Great Stick

I used this for AAA Midget major hockey along with high school hockey for a year. The blade broke on me during a practice and bauer sent me a new one even though i was two weeks late of the warranty. Ive been using my new one for about 4 months now and it has not snapped but the blade has noticeably became softer. It is the best stick I've ever used and its close second is the warrior qr1. I recommend this stick to crafty forwards

Not that good

I usually use CCM sticks, but I switched it up this time and got a Bauer. This stick broke within the first week of using it. When I received the stick, there were no marks on the stick and was not broken. I always look to see if the stick is broken when I get a new stick. I would either go with a different brand or go with the supreme or nexus line, perferbly the nexus line
