Joining the Vapor skate line up in the Spring will be the new Bauer Vapor X 100 skates. These skates will sit at a price point right beneath the Bauer Vapor APX 2 skates.

The Bauer Vapor X 100 skates will be similar to the original APX skates, with a few new features.

Starting with the quarter package, the Vapor X 100 skates will use the 3D lasted Curv Composite with x-rib pattern. Inside we’ll find a hydra max mesh liner along with lightweight form fit ankle pads. A 52 ounce three piece pro felt tongue will be featured on the Vapor X 100 skates, and will be integrated with a high density metatarsal guard. The footbed provided will be Bauer’s Form-Fit+ footbed with grip, moisture management and a heel stabilizer. Of course the full upper will be thermoformable, meaning a precise fit around your foot after baking.

Moving on to the lower features, the Vapor X 100 will use a full composite outsole which will be very light in weight. New to the Vapor series, and included on this skate will be the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. First, you’re going to see a 3mm increase in height with this new holder, but its main feature will be the ability to quickly replace steel. The holder will feature a trigger which you can pull to release the current blade and put in a new set in a matter of seconds. The stock steel on these skates will be the Tuuk LS2 stainless steel runner.

The Bauer Vapor X 100 skate will be in retail stores this April and should be available at around $799.99. Check out the Vapor X 100 skates below and let us know your thoughts in the comments. Are you sticking with your current Vapor skates or upgrading to these?
