Bauer Vapor 3x Intermediate Goalie Leg Pads – Special Edition

Goalies Plus has done it again with our Special Edition version of the Bauer Vapor 3x lines.  We will be offering five unique color ways exclusive to Goalies Plus! These colors are in stock and ready to ship now!

The Bauer Vapor 3x is considered the hybrid style pad in the Bauer line.  Bauer has done a tremendous job creating a flexible pad that can be used by any hybrid type goalie.  The Vapor 3x pad has a great pre-curved  “s” shape that allows just about any goalie to seal the five hole.  Goalies with a narrow and medium butterfly width can use the Vapor pads and know they can still perform at the highest level.  Bauer also uses a CURV Composite material in the thigh rise which keeps the thigh rise stiff and not does not become prone to becoming soft and sloppy over time. The Vapor 3x goalie pad also has good lateral flex which again is ideal for the hybrid style goalie as the pad will move more independently (top, middle and bottom) compared to a stiffer blocking style pad. The boot of the Bauer Vapor 3x pad uses a stock 110 degree break.  Again this is the softest boot Bauer offers and it provides the most mobility possible.

Looking at some new features of the Bauer Vapor Hyperlite goalie leg pads; weight is the first noticeable difference compared to past generations of Vapor pads.  Bauer was able to decrease weight on the new Vapor 3x by reducing the overall profile of the pad.  The 2021 Vapor pad will also be using a Stabiliflex knee block system.  The Stabiliflex is very similar to the Stabilislide knee block on the Bauer Supreme pads but with more flex.  This knee block system has been proven to provide greater stability to the goalie in the butterfly position and also moving laterally in the butterfly slide techniques.  The Stabiliflex also provides a better overall seal to the ice surface.  The stock knee wing on the Vapor 3x is removable, so if the goalie prefers the knee strapping to be angled versus behind the knee – this flap can be easily removed.

Also new for 2021 is the balance plate located on the inner calf area of the pad.  The balance plate creates a stable surface for the lower leg to rest on while in the different butterfly techniques.  By adding better overall balance to the goalies center position, techniques can be performed quicker and more precise because of this new balance plate.

The skin and core of the Bauer Vapor 3x has also been updated for 2021.  Bauer has introduced the C.O.R. Tech Plus material for the new Vapor 3x pad.  This new material has better durability then previous generation Bauer C.O.R. materials.  Along with being more durable, the C.O.R. Plus has great stability when the goalie is moving laterally in the various butterfly techniques. The new core will feature the Rebound Boost Core which is flexible for the hybrid goalie but also provides extremely active rebounds off the face of the 3x pads.

The strapping system on the Bauer Vapor 3x features the Tune Fit 2.0.  The Tune Fit 2.0 is an elastic and velcro strapping system that allows the goalie to customize the fit of the pad in a matter of seconds.

In the toe area, Bauer will continue to use the bungee cord system from past generations of Vapor and Supreme goalie pads. For years manufactures have used a skate lace to connect the toe of the pad to the toe of the skate. In recent years, after market bungee toe tie products have become very popular because they allow the toe of the pad to stretch from the toe of the skate with an elastic type effect. This stretching and recoiling improves the recovery process and creates more power pushes for the goalie. This toe system also takes pressure off the goalies ankles, knees and hips because it eliminates the quick stop and jerk process that skate lace has when it runs out of slack.

The Bauer Vapor 3x is a high level goal pad.  Recommended for A thru AAA travel level goalies.

Bauer Vapor 3x Intermediate Goalie Catch Glove – Special Edition

Building off the extremely successful Vapor 2x glove, the Vapor 3x will be one of the most popular goalie gloves in 2021. The Vapor 3x glove is very similar to the 2x glove with the biggest difference being the double t pocket on the Vapor 3x versus the single t on the Vapor 2x.  In our opinion, the double t pocket is by far more popular as it allows the glove to open wider and makes puck catching easier and more forgiving.

The Bauer Vapor 3x glove will continue with the one piece cuff design.  The cuff will have CURV composite reinforcement. The glove closure will also be the same as the past generation Vapor with a 60 degree break.  Combined with the double t pocket, the 60 degree closure makes the Vapor 3x glove very easy to open and close right off the shelf.  For palm protection, the Vapor 3x will have a game ready pro felt palm.  This palm has pro level protection and can easily be used at high levels of play.

The backhand of the Bauer Vapor 3x glove will have the Free Flex system.  The Free Flex has been proven to provide the extra flexibility goalies desire which again makes the glove much easier to open and close.  The inner palm material of the Vapor 3x glove will come stock with the Connekt Grip material.  The Connekt Grip liner allows the goalies fingers to grip the inner palm of the glove – allowing for more control.  Even when the glove is soaking wet, the goalie can still control the palm at peak performance with this material.

The Bauer Vapor 3x is a high level catch glove.  Recommended for 3 to 5 uses per week.

Bauer Vapor 3x Intermediate Goalie Blocker – Special Edition

Building off the extremely successful Vapor 2x blocker, the Vapor 3x is very similar to the Vapor 2x intermediate blocker.  The Vapor 3x blocker utilizes a high density HD foam face with CURV Composite.  This helps create an explosive rebound off the board when a goalie is making a blocker save.

The palm of the Vapor 3x blocker will have a new look for 2021.  The 14.5 Connekt Palm material will give the goalie an extra grip and feel not seen in previous generations of Vapor blockers.  This equates to more stick control, better feel and better overall performance.  With stick handling being a must for goalies in today’s game, the blocker palm is vital to stick handling success.

The finger protection of the Vapor 3x blocker is fully adjustable.  The sidewall of the this blocker will come stock with a thump pillow for added support and protection to the inside of the hand and thumb area.

The cuff opening on the 3x blocker has an asymmetrical design which allows for maximum wrist mobility.  Again with stick handing at a premium in the new age of goaltending, every little detail becomes vital to a goalies success.  With the mobility the 3x blocker provides, we feel this gives a goalie their best chance for success in both save techniques and stick handling techniques.

The Bauer Vapor 3x is a high level blocker.  Recommended for A thru AAA travel level goalies.
