Bauer Vapor APX Skates Announced!

Posted in Leaks with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 21, 2010 by prostocknation

According to The Hockey Shop’s Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/thehockeyshop) the Bauer Vapor APX (pronounced “APEX”) is due out April 2011.  It looks exactly the same as the pair that was posted up for sale on eBay a couple months back we posted about: https://prostocknation.wordpress.com/2010/08/23/bauer-apx-skates-on-ebay/ It seems like Bauer’s Supreme and Vapor platform will have more in common compared to previous generations.  The APX will have the highly moldable ALIVE Composite upper just like the TOTAL ONE skates.  It will also be lighter than the X:60 thanks in part to the aluminum Tuuk Fusion Steel.

A couple NHL players have been spotted wearing the APX skates so far into this early NHL season; Tyler Seguin of the Boston Bruins being one of them.  The skates being worn right now aren’t the same color as the retail offerings and that’s not surprise since Bauer has a history of doing so (pro’s wearing X:60 skates dressed up to look like the Vapor XXXX prior to it’s retail release.)

We haven’t seen any clear pictures of the tongue being used on the APX but we’re expecting a similar tongue from the previous two Vapor skates.  Wonder if these will be offered with the Reflex Tongue, as found on the Total ONE skates, as a custom option.
