New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced goalie skates in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Senior Goalie Skates. The X2.9 skate has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest skates on the market.
Starting off with the build of the Bauer X2.9 Senior, a cowlingless boot design provides deeper attack angles for quicker pushes on the ice, while cutting down the overall weight. This skate comes with a new 3D Fiber composite quarter package that will provide durability with a lightweight feel all while having top level protection.
Moving on to the ankle area of the Vapor X2.9, a new plush foam ankle pad wraps around the sides and back of the ankle and provides comfort for the goaltender while in a ready stance. Next, flex edge padding wraps around the sides of the collar to allow the goaltender to get in to a deep stance comfortably. On the back, a nylon heel loop is provided and has been made larger to allow for an easier fit for a boot strap. Finally, a Pro Felt tongue gives maximum comfort to the goaltender while leaning forward in their stance.
Included on the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Senior is the Vertexx Edge holder that was featured previously in the Vapor line. This holder features the Edge Trigger System for quick and easy steel replacements. On the topic of steel, the X2.9 features 3mm LS1G+ stainless steel that sits higher than regular steel to give the goaltender deeper attack angles and easier pushes.
Finally, the bottom of the X2.9 Senior features a lightweight TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) outsole designed to give the goaltender a lightweight base to the skate with high durability. Next, the liner is made from HydraMax2 material that is designed to keep the goaltender’s foot cool and dry while helping keep them locked in to the boot for better control on the ice.
In comparison to the Vapor X2.7 goalie skate, the Bauer Vapor X2.9 features higher quality construction and higher quality materials.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie skate that is made as a one piece boot with a lightweight design, the Bauer Vapor X2.9 Senior Goalie Skates are the skates for you.
Ice skate sizing is not necessarily the same as if you were buying a dress shoe or a sneaker. A men's 9 skate does not equal a men's 9 shoe. All skates are sized in Canadian sizes; which are equal to 1 1/2 sizes larger in U.S. shoe size (i.e. a men's U.S. shoe size of 9 is equal to a Canadian size of 7.5). A lot of our customers a say "I could never fit into a 7.5 shoe!" This is true, however, a 7.5 skate is not a 7.5 shoe. Typically your skate size will be 1 to 1.5 skate sizes down from your shoe size. When you receive your skates, try them on and push your foot forward so that your toes (while flat) barely glance the toe cap. Bend your knee forward and look behind the heel of your foot down the skate. If you can fit a finger behind the heel easily the skates are too big. A finger should be wedged securely between the heel of your foot and the back side of the skate. Another way to find your skate size (not width), is to remove the footbed from the skates and stand on it with your knee slightly bent. NOTE: Make sure not to sharpen your skates until you are certain you have the correct size, sharpened skates cannot be returned.
