Bauer Vapor X 7.0 LE Hockey Skate Review

Bauer Vapor X 7.0 LE Hockey Skate Review

The Bauer X7.0 LE Skates will have the exact same design and features as the standard Bauer 7.0 ice skate. Which is basically the same skate as the Bauer Vapor X60 skate. Due to the huge success of the X60 ice skates Bauer wanted to ensure they had a skate in their line for those players that fell in love with the X60 and just want to replace that skates. So they kept the exact same design and applied the updated X-rib construction to basically offer the same skate again for the 2011/2012 season. The Vapor X 7.0 skate features the ultra light weight tech mesh quarter material, and dense durable liner featured on the X60 skate.
