The Bauer Vapor APX2R Roller Hockey Skates are one of the greatest roller hockey skates the market has seen to date. The Vapor APX2R features the exclusive 3D Lasted Curv® Composite Uppers, Injected Stability Lacing System, Hi-Lo™ Aluminized Kryptonium chassis and Revision Variant Plus 74A wheels.
The Vapor APX2R features the signature Vapor X-Rib design in the heel that provides top notch stability and support to help players maximize power in their strides. The 3D lasted Curv® Composite quarter package has a professional level of stiffness and is even more thermoformable than the prior Alive quarters, giving players a true custom fit. The injected stability lacing system is an all new design that is more efficient at transferring energy compared to previous traditional systems and is more durable too.
The Aluminized Kryptonium Chassis is one of the lightest and strongest frames out. The unique steel treatment Bauer used allows them to reduce the amount of material used while maintaining the highest level of durability and strength. The chassis holds Revision Variant Plus 74A wheels; (2) 80mm wheels in the rear and (2) 76mm wheels in the front to position the player in an aggressive stance. Internally, the wheels run on Hi-Lo™ Swiss LE bearings for superior roll.
The Form-Fit 3 tongue is a 3-piece 52 oz. white felt tongue with an integrated abrasion resistant metatarsal guard. The Form-Fit+ footbed with ErgoToe allows for customizable toe protection while assisting in moisture-management and heel stabilizing. The Hydra Max 2 liner with Total Edge comfort helps to wick away moisture and resist abrasions.

Comments: Amazing, perfect fit since the first use, very comfortable, ultra light and best response in each movement, you think that your foot and the skate are only one.
The best roller hockey skates that all I used.
From: David, Madrid, Spain
Comments: Sometimes you just find a skate and you put them on and I feel like I'm forgetting something. These skates are the best skates ever made, and I'm really not exaggerating, these are much better than the ac1, unless you have problems about your feet burning, which I have to admit I've never had before, they are much lightly than the alkali's even the max. I've never had a pair of skates that feel so responsive, the wheels just enable you to accelerate so fast and the weight of the boot helps this so much more, the laces going right over the tongue really help. the best way to describe this is the wheels are the same as duct trap, nothing compares to these wheels, not rink rat not ANYTHING. the price is well worth it
From: Chris, London, UK
Comments: This is by far the best skate I have ever had. Very comfortable, very stiff, and very light. The only downside to this skate is the wheels in my opinion. I would have loved for Bauer to put the Labeda Addiction wheels on these. One of the Variant Plus wheels separated from the hub after about my 4th time using them. Luckily I had Addiction wheels from my previous skates I'm using now.
