    The “tennis shoe” comparison was a bit over the top. My apologies. I don’t recall the tongue containing memory foam. The tongue is however, less “rigid” and a bit more “plush” than the previous Vapor tongues. It still has lace bite protection. I usually hate Bauer tongues (I use the CCM XS Slim and love it), but this tongue was one I could see myself skating with.

    Not allowed to say anymore about the boot, sorry....or the new LS steel 😶.

    Is the laceline/cut going to be same in hyperlite skates than 2x pro? Because in the picture it seems that laceline is not as aggressive than 2x pro?

    Yes, same height and fit. They increased the forward flexion and overall flex of the skate. It’s a nice upgrade. I LOVE the new tongue. It’s almost like a tennis shoe tongue.


    Here is a higher resolution pic so you can see what is on the boot (mods please delete if necessary).

    Is the top eyelet of the skate going to be lower than 2x pro skate or is the top eyelet hole going to be smaller? Because in the picture it seems smaller/lower. And how they have increased the wrap of the boot? Does the open eyelets cause more wrap than 2x pro lacing system ?

    FYI, this isn’t the actual graphics package. They’re just showing you the features of the skate. Someone leaked the Ultrasonic early last year at Bauer World and they were pissed. They’ve decided to not release the skate OR stick graphics package until June/July. The Hyperlite skates I held were the same as above. Even the rep has no idea what they’re going to look like.

    However, the rest of the line has a very simple, non-flashy design. Think original Supreme TotalOne. They look great.

    Okey, did you notice some significant differences versus 2x pro? I mean is the boot height same than 2x pro and is the fit about same?

    The scanner is a good starting point but I recommend trying on the skates it recommends to get the ideal fit. 

    The Vapor and Supreme Fit 1/2/3 fit similar in terms of volume and specifications but the boots are significantly different thus one may fit you better than the other. 

    Do you know is there height difference in vapor skates between two sizes measured from bottom of the boot to the top eyelet? Example sizes 8.0 vs 9.0? 


  5. I chatted with bauer fit and tech expert and he said that there is coming new technology, steel and lacing in hyperlite skates. I asked about lacing and he said it should flex more easily than the 2x pro. I dont know does he mean the forward flex is better or does it wrap better ? You could see the new lacing in image which i posted earlier. Also i found on the internet that the new steel should be carbonlite runner.

    I definitely agree that the Supremes had a more neutral pitch  (whether it was the boot/eyelets or the holder or both) in the "pre-Fit1,2,3" era.  I wonder if that has remained the same with the current line of Ultrasonics and Vapor 2X Pro.  I'd assume so.    

    Yes, i asked the LHS guy and he said that vapor is vapor and supreme is supreme so skates are different in those specs that you mentioned. The new fit system only allows more people to fit the skates but they are built by different types of players.

    Yes, I think the only way to really know is to actually skate in them because to me both the lines with the same Fit felt fairly similar when I tried them out in store.  I'm just a bit leery about the offset boot in the Vapor since I've always been with the regular cut boot the Supremes have.    

    I tried 2s pro about year ago. I now have apx 2 vapor skates. There was a huge difference between supreme and vapor. 2s pro feels that i am skating on my heels and couldn’t get good forward lean. The boot are more neutral pitched than vapor in my opinion. Can someone tell me am i right about the pitch ? Few LHS gyus have told me that vapor have more aggressive stance than supreme skate. Also the eyeletline are L-shaped in vapors and U-shaped in Supreme’s and thats allow you to the better forward lean also.

    I just wanted to second this. With my current pair of skates, I went down a 1/2 size. At first I thought it was just me and that I would get used to the smaller runners. I couldn't no matter how hard I tried. It just exasperated a bunch of issues I had with my skating. That's when I looked into profiling, and it made a huge difference. Nothing fancy. I just went from the stock profile to a larger one and tweaked until I liked what I was feeling. 

    So you didn’t change the holders to the larger one’s? You just changed your profile to the larger radius and you now feel comfortable with the skates?

    How well do those apx's fit? I mean, the scanner is dropping you down a full size while putting you in a boot with a bit more volume. That sort of sounds like you may have added length to those apx's to compensate for a lack of depth or proper width. Just a thought...

    Don't look at the scan as a definitive answer. It's a starting point and there is always a secondary fit option. You still need to spend time trying them to be sure.

    Apx2 skates fit ok except my foot moves a bit. My foot moves because the skate are too big. I assume that when i bought those skates the 8D was too narrow so i bought the 9D which was good for the width but too long. The 3D scan put me to the fit 2 because my width are E. I tested 8.0 fit 2 which was good and 8.0 EE which was too wide. They didn´t have 8.0 fit 1. I am worried about is the ankle wrap longer with fit 2 vs fit 1? I mean that is the length from the tendon guard to the first eyelet longer in fit 2 versus fit 1? Or is the fit 2 just a little bit deeper than fit 1 so there are more volume because of that? Does anybody know?

    Thank you for your answers!


  10. Hey, i have a few question about bauer fit system. I have apx2 9.0D skates and i am considering new skates. I maybe want 2x pro skates. I used the 3D machine and scan said i have 8.0 size and fit 2. I have low volume feet but my width is E. So i am worried about the boot height/volume. Is the Fit 2 boot higher than fit 1 or my apx2 skate? Are there different in boot height between supreme and vapor?
