For that second price point Elite level skate Bauer has brought more to the new Vapor X5 Pro skate with it coming with the new PowerFly holder and digi comp outsole & pro stock felt tongue.
For that elite player looking for maximum energy transfer we have a full 3D lasted curv composite quarter panel. The curv material provides added durability and strength so you can feel confident with each stride and turn. With the vapor boot designed for agility they have the an integrated injected facing to work with you and allow more energy to be transferred through the boot.
HOLDER & RUNNER
Coming from the OD1N project the powerfly holder has been designed with a stiffer front post that allows for increased acceleration and to enhance their responsiveness. All this coupled with a new steel line up that improves security of the blade and durability of the holder. The new FLY-X runner is a higher grade steel compared to the previous Pulse runner that will provide better edge retention and comes stock with a 10ft profile which can easily be modified with one of Prosharps many profile options. The new FLY-X steel is also compatible with both Powefly & Edge holders where Pulse & Pulse TI are not compatible with the Powerfly holder.
TONGUE & LINER
Keeping your foot locked in to place with all this power being generated is the Hydrolite liner that is made to securely keep your foot locked in while also reducing any moisture from staying in the boot. Keeping your foot comfortable in the skate is Aerofoam+ ankle padding to add comfort for those tight turns while keeping your foot locked in place. For the top of your foot from exploding out we have a improved 48oz pro stock felt tongue with an added composite insert for improved lace bite protection.
Much like previous models the X5 Pro comes in the 3 fit system with Fit 1 being the narrow & shallow fit, Fit 2 more anatomical & Fit 3 the widest & most volume fit of them all.
