Bauer Vapor 1X Pro Stock - 2017 Hockey Stick
The 2017 Bauer Vapor 1X Grip Stick offers the quickest shot release and lightest overall weight from a Vapor stick to date! Bauer was able to achieve this through a new way of orienting the carbon fiber layers to reduce the weight, quicken the release and to improve durability in the taper area by 30%.
This tapered area, called QRT or Quick Release Taper Technology, is the unique geometry in the lower third of the shaft. This enables players to get a shot off lightning quick without the need to load a significant amount of energy into the shaft, which requires valuable time. Accentuating the quick release is the Aero-Sense II blade core that provides the most stiffness and pop out of all three stick lines. The blade core also features aerospace-grade materials that are directly integrated into the outer layer of carbon fiber. Named the Sense-Layer, it provides enhanced protection from chipping, cracking and premature blade breakdown.
The stick itself is constructed of Bauer's signature TeXtreme Carbon and eLASTech resin. The flat-weave, silver carbon fiber is not only 20% lighter than traditional carbon but more importantly, it's 20% stronger too! Unique to only Bauer's top of the line models, eLASTech resin has carbon nanotube reinforcements that help prevent small fractures from growing, which eventually cause the stick to break.
