The Bauer Vapor X500 skate features the classic Vapor V-fit profile which consists of a standard width through the toebox and forefoot with a low-volume, narrow fit in the heel and ankle.
The updated X-Rib pattern provides structural support to the skate leading to improved heel and ankle lock for quicker crossovers and tighter turns. This pattern is thermoformed into the sublimated tech nylon quarter construction of the X500.
The X500 uses a hydrophobic microfiber liner, which is both comfortable and helps to reduce drying time between ice times. The 2-piece 40 oz. white felt tongue with high-density foam metatarsal guard provides extra support and protection.
The boot sits atop a clear injected TPU outsole, which is a commonly used material for which to mount the Tuuk Lightspeed Edge holder. This holder design provides an added three millimeters of height, in comparison to the Tuuk Lightspeed 2 holder which gives the skater a greater angle of attack. The other huge benefit of this holder is the ability to change the runners in seconds with the pull of a trigger. The X500 comes with the Tuuk Super Stainless steel.
