The Bauer Vapor X5.0 ice hockey skates offer great overall performance. The Bauer Vapor 5.0 skate is where you really see the jump to advanced performance in the Bauer Vapor skate line. The X5.0 skate features the same overall design as the rest of the Vapor skate line with the X-rib quarter panel.

The Vapor X5.0 skate is also the most advance skate in the Bauer Vapor line that features a traditional felt tongue. The fiber composite outsole helps offer a light and responsive feel, as well as being slightly more forgiving than skates higher in the Vapor line.
