New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced blockers in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Blocker. The 2X Intermediate has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest on the market.
Starting off with the face of the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate, the graphic is made up of three main zones with one that covers the cuff area, the next travels diagonally across the face, and finally near the sidewall. There are two sets of “spears” streak across the top and bottom areas for added design along with a digitally printed dimpled texture on the top and bottom zones that provides visual design as well as added durability.
Looking at the board of the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate, you will notice the brand new thin tapered design of the board with a defined top angle, lined with Curv Composite internally and C.O.R Tech ST as the skin to create better rebounds that direct easily in to corners and give the goaltender time to recover. Wrapping around to the inner sidewall, the Vapor 2X is designed with strategic cuts to create a solid blocking surface with a lightweight design.
Flipping around to the palm of the 2X Intermediate blocker, a central hand position has been used to give the feeling of making saves in the middle of the backhand for precise blocking placement. The palm itself uses a similar build to a player glove palm with the new AX Suede Pro Palm that creates a comfortable handle and a confident grip on the stick. Internally, the palm feature Thermocore liner that will help keep the goaltender’s hand cool during usage.
Finally, on the cuff of the Vapor 2X Intermediate blocker, Aerolite has been used to create a protective cuff that allows for a wide range of motion to help goalie’s project their hand toward the shooter and create better angles for redirecting pucks in to corners.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie blocker that is made to be a lightweight and reactive blocker with unmatched mobility, the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Blocker is the blocker you are looking for.
New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced gloves in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Glove. The 2X Intermediate has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest on the market.
Starting off with the face of the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate, the graphic is made up of three main zones with one that covers the cuff area, the next travels diagonally across the palm, and finally one at the fingers portion. Two sets of “spears” streak across the thumb and fingers areas for added design along with a digitally printed design on the top and bottom zones that provides visual design. On the zone that covers the cuff portion, added material that is stitched on provides higher durability to this key area. Finally, the face of the glove is composed of Bauer’s new CATCHLITE material that is designed for high durability.
Moving on to the build of the 2X Intermediate, a one piece cuff design gives a naturally large appearance for better visual presentation the shooter. On the pocket and closure, a 60 degree closure angle allows the goaltender’s hand to sit higher in the glove and give a full hand closure that feels better than ever right out of the box. An all new max depth pocket with an offset single T has been added to provide the goaltender with a larger catching surface that will swallow shots in to the pocket. Inside of the palm, Curv Composite has been implemented for superior protection along with a thermo max liner to keep the goaltender’s hands cool during use.
On the backhand of the Vapor 2X, a Free-Flex cuff with Curv Composite technology is implemented to give the goalie a wide range of motion to help project their glove towards the shooter. A new fast strap has been added for quick wrist adjustments to give the goalie the secure feel they need. Inside the fingers area, a three point comfort edge adjustment system lined with thermo max that is placed to help create the perfect fit and feel for each goaltender.
If you are an Intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie glove that is made to be lightweight with a natural closure and unmatched comfortability, the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Glove is the glove you are looking for.
New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced leg pads in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Leg Pad. The 2X Senior has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest on the market.
Starting off with the face of the Bauer Vapor 2X, the graphic is made up of three main large zones with one at the upper outside, one at the inner bottom, and one large zone in the middle that stretches diagonally through the length of the pad and breaks up the two outer zones, along with two sets of “spears” near the top and bottom of the pad for added design. Visually, you will notice the digitally printed design on the top and bottom zones of the pad that are implemented for added design.
Moving on to the build of the Vapor 2X Intermediate, Bauer has used a synthetic leather front face with C.O.R Tech calf and knee plates to provide better rebounds that give the goaltender time to recover. On the internals of the pad, a dynamic flex core with flex points above and below the knee with Curv Composite in the thigh rise have been utilized to create a flexible pad for an effective butterfly style. The thigh rise gets thinner as it approaches the top of the pad, coming to a pointed end to help reduce weight in the thigh portion. Down at the boot, a 100 degree free flex boot is used to give the goaltender a better angle in the pad for a deep stance that fits more naturally on the leg, making crease movements and key save selections easier to maneuver.
Looking at the side profile of the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate, you will see the thin design that was implemented to reduce the overall weight of the pad. On outer gusset, a curved outer roll up raises from the face to act as a traditional outer roll. Flipping around to the inside edge, the sliding surface is designed with a thin profile that contains strategic cuts to cut down on weight and create a low friction surface for the quickest slides.
Next on the back of the 2X Intermediate, AX Suede Quattro that has been used in Bauer’s player gloves is provided on the knee stack to prevent growth of bacteria to provide cleaner gear for longer. Featured on the knee landing itself, a 45 degree cut at the top edge provides mobility during crease movements by helping prevent the knee stacks from hitting each other. On the inside of the knee landing area, the binding has been removed from the pad, further creating a smooth sliding surface. Finally, the knee strap can be either pulled over to a provided knee wing that now has adjustable options to tighten or loosen up the knee wing, or the knee strap can be angled down to the calf.
Further down, the leg channel is also lined with AX Suede Quattro. Both the inner and outer calf wraps have been redesigned with specific cuts to provide the goaltender with a more durability and mobility in the pad. Bauer has continued with the Tune Fit Strapping system that allows for full Velcro strapping and adjustments above and below the calf muscle for a secure and comfortable fit along with an elastic strap over top holding the sliding edge comfortably to the leg.
Lastly, Bauer has a new stock toe tie option with the Monster H.A.L strap that is comprised of elastic and Velcro that secures on top of the goaltender’s skate. An elastic toe tie allows the goaltender to wear the tie tight to their skate but have the flexibility and response they need for deep and strong pushes. The toe bridge comes in an offset position but can be adjusted toward the center if the goalie prefers.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie pad that is made to be lightweight with optimal flex points, the Bauer Vapor 2X Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads are the pads you are looking for. (Each set includes CRS boot straps and short and long replacement calf straps)
