The VAPOR 1X is designed with a unique TeXtreme® silver version which gives it new and revolutionary look.
“By partnering with TeXtreme® we are able to incorporate a high performance material into our elite products in a way that maximizes playability and integrates the innovative designs and features we develop,” said Tyson Teplitsky, Global Brand Manager of Bauer Hockey. “We’re proud to continue this partnership and deliver the new silver variant of TeXtreme® in the BAUER VAPOR 1X stick.”
Another feature of the stick is the eLASTech Technology which reinforces the TeXtreme® carbon fibers with micro nanotubes, helping to prevent cracks from slashes growing as well as extending the pop life of the stick. The Monocomp Construction process is one of the best in the industry, providing an extremely consistent feel and feel from top to bottom.
