New for 2019, Bauer goalie has continued on one of the most engineered and technologically advanced blockers in all of goaltending and released the Bauer Vapor 2X Senior Goalie Blocker. The X2.7 Senior has specific features and revisions from the previous generation and continues to be one of the lightest on the market.
Starting off with the face of the Bauer Vapor X2.7 Senior, the graphic is made up of three main zones with one that covers the cuff area, the next travels diagonally across the face, and finally near the sidewall. Two sets of “spears” streak across the top and bottom areas for added design along with a digitally printed design on the top and bottom zones that provides visual design.
Looking at the face of the Bauer Vapor X2.7 Senior, you will notice the one piece board shape design with a defined top angle made of HD foam to help direct rebounds to corners and give the goaltender time to recover. Wrapping around to the inner sidewall, the Vapor X2.7 is designed with strategic cuts to create a solid blocking surface with a lightweight design.
Flipping around to the palm side of the X2.7 Senior blocker, a central hand position has been used to give the feeling of making saves in the middle of the backhand for precise blocking placement. The palm itself uses ivory nash material that creates a comfortable grip on to the goaltender’s stick. Internally, the palm features a nylon moisture-wicking liner that helps keep the goalie’s hands dry during usage.
Finally, on the cuff of the Vapor X2.7 Senior blocker, Aerolite has been used to create a protective cuff that allows for a wide range of motion to help goalie’s project their hand toward the shooter and create better angles for redirecting pucks in to corners.
If you are an intermediate-level goaltender who is looking for the top engineering in a goalie blocker that is made to be a lightweight and reactive blocker with unmatched mobility, the Bauer Vapor X2.7 Senior Goalie Blocker is the blocker you are looking for.
