This year Bauer has pushed performance to another level with the introduction of the Powerfly Holder, increasing player’s takeoff acceleration and side to side transitions through the various flex points. The front post of the holder is rigid, increasing energy transfer in every stride for faster acceleration. The hyperbolic stability bar increases balance for quicker transitions, and the responsive back post promotes faster side to side transitions.
The blade channel is also modified to incorporate hyperbolic geometry, improving the integration of the steel and holder, lowering the stress on the trigger during impacts. With the new hyperbolic geometry comes the new FLY-X steel, the direct replacement to the Pulse Steel and the titanium coded FLY-TI, the direct replacement to the PULSE-TI. The new steel types are compatible for both the new Powerfly holder and the Lightspeed Edge holder. The Junior skate will come with the Fly-X steel. It is important to note that the previous generation Lightspeed Edge steel is not compatible with the new Powerfly holder.
The Bauer Vapor X5 Pro has a 3D lasted Curv Composite Quarter package which provides elite level support while keeping the skate very lightweight. The outsole is made of Digi Comp, which allows the skate to maintain its lower flex point for optimal quickness and agility.
Elevating the X5 Pro is the integrated injected facing which provides lateral stability and improves the lock of the foot to the skate and allows proper forward flex. For interior comfort, the X5 Pro uses AeroFoam+ padding with a Hydrolite liner which provides good support, a soft feel, and moisture-management properties to help wick sweat away and keep your foot secured in the boot.
The Pro Stock 48oz tongue will give you the protection you need and prevent lace-bite, while the Lock-Fit footbed will provide optimal comfort from a top-end skate.
The Bauer Vapor X5 Pro skate is an excellent option for players who skate 3-4 times a week and are looking for elite features in a high-performing skate all at a great value. Although this skate is recommended for Elite and Performance skaters, any player at any level can upgrade from a lower model.
The Fly-TI and Fly-X runners are compatible for both the new Powerfly Holder and the original Lightspeed Edge Holder. The Pulse TI and Pulse runners are NOT compatible with the new Powerfly Holder.
The Fly-TI runners are a direct replacement to the Pulse TI. This steel has a titanium outer coating, increased height and an ultra premium core for better performance and edge retention.
The Fly-X runners are a direct replacement to the Pulse. This steel has a high polished mirror finish, increased height and premium core materials for enhanced on ice glide, and great performance and durability.
