Close up pictures have finally begun to leak out of Bauer’s latest skate, the Bauer Vapor APX 2 skates. Bauer has decided on a darker look for the APX 2 skates, removing much of the light gray from the original APX skate and replacing it with a dark
er gray on the APX2. Gone as well is the red stripe featured on the quarter package of the original APX.
Also new and improved on the Bauer Vapor APX 2 skates is the tongue – which as you can tell from the picture is much longer. They’ve definitely moved away from the Form-Fit 3 tongue from the original APX and into a new ultra-soft three piece tongue to prevent lace bite (and of course to flop).
Additionally, the Bauer Vapor APX 2 skates are using the new Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. The unique feature on this holder is the trigger which can be seen in the hole closest to the heel. This trigger will allow players to quickly swap out broken steel in a matter of seconds.
Finally, you can see that the eyelets on the Vapor APX 2 skates appear different as well. That’s because they will be using a new an innovative new lacing system. While we don’t really know what affect that will have, you can definitely tell from the picture below that it is different.
We first brought you a look at the new 2013 Vapor skates back in July. Many questioned at that point whether it was a new Vapor skate, or an older limited edition skate. We’re happy to confirm that those skates are in fact the Bauer Vapor APX 2 and look forward to their release next April.
Take a look at the new Bauer Vapor APX 2 skates below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. The latest skates from Bauer look real nice, but will you be replacing your current skates with a pair of these?
