The Vapor line by Bauer is designed to be lightweight, foster mobility, and enhance performance. The goalie sticks are no exception to this ideology. New for 2017, the 1X uses new technology and expert craftsmanship to provide goalies with a one-of-a-kind experience.
The 1X has the feel and puck dampening that many love about foam core sticks, but with the weight and durability of a composite stick. Bauer uses INNEGRA fiber, woven with carbon reinforcement to provide maximum durability, and the core of the paddle features Balsa wood to increase dampening properties and dramatically reduce the weight. The paddle is also contoured to have a flat face and rounded back, giving goalies optimal balance in their stances and improved feel while puck handling.
The blade of the 1X employs Bauer’s AERO FOAM 3 blade core, which balances the weight of the stick and creates a more consistent feel of the puck. INNEGRA fiber extends to wrap the outside of the blade as well, increasing durability in the highest-traffic area of the stick.
The composite shaft is complete with a GripTac shoulder and double-concave walls, giving goalies a more secure hand placement in stance and increasing maneuverability on the handle respectively.
Unique INNEGRA™ fiber woven with carbon reinforcement combines maximum durability with the feel of foam core.
Balsa wood inserted into the paddle increases puck dampening properties for superior feel compared to traditional foam core.
