Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Scores Hat Tricks Starting Today
Available today, the Bauer Vapor 1X hockey stick is back, and this time it’s lighter with even more performance features. The new Bauer Hockey Vapor 1X Lite stick includes brand new Bauer hockey technologies as well as updated features from the Vapor 1X stick. The new Bauer Vapor 1X Lite stick puts greater performance in your hands, with even less weight.
The 1X Lite stick’s Micro Feel II shaft has rounded corners and double concave walls to fit comfortably in your glove, keeping your hands nimble for puck handling with control.
The Aero-Sense Core II blade has a new Dual Density AERO FOAM 3 core for reduced weight and precision. SENSE technology absorbs energy, giving the stick durability and performance. Combined, these technologies result in a stick that is lightweight and balanced with improved torsional stability for strong and quick release on shots.
New QRT+ Technology
Upgraded from the Vapor 1X’s QRT Technology (Quick Release Taper), the Vapor 1X Lite features QRT+ Technology. QRT+ is an aggressive taper design to get your shot off faster by keeping the transfer of energy near the bottom of the shaft. The new low-kick format is ideal for quick motion snap and slap shots with its ability to load and recoil energy. With Bauer’s QRT+ innovation, the Vapor 1X Lite provides 20% more stability than the original Vapor 1X, for more control for one-timers and passing.
Monocomp Technology & TeXtreme Features
Monocomp Technology ensures that the Bauer Vapor 1X Lite stick provides consistent performance with improved balance and reduced overall weight. TeXtreme is an exclusive Bauer technology that is 20% lighter than conventional carbon fiber, but still possesses incredible strength, and is available only on the 1X Lite.
eLASTech resin is one of Bauer’s many proprietary technologies. Injected into the blade of the stick of the Vapor 1X Lite, it features carbon nanotube reinforcements which reduce the spread of micro-fractures caused by slashes and shots. This will keep the stick’s “pop” for longer, allowing for a consistent feel and long lasting performance.
Advanced Carbon Layering Technology
New on the Vapor 1X Lite is Bauer Hockey’s ACL (Advanced Carbon Layering) technology. The 1X Lite’s internal carbon layers are 13% thinner for weight reduction, while optimized carbon fiber placement strengthens the blade. With this thinner, lighter carbon fiber, the Vapor 1X Lite delivers an 11% faster release compared to the original Vapor 1X.
The Bauer Vapor 1X Lite composite hockey stick is available in Senior, Intermediate, Junior and Youth sizes, as well as a Griptec model.
