The Vapor X900 glove features a true one piece cuff for stability and rigidity and has this backed industry standard HD foam and plastic materials. This gives the glove a phenomenal open shape and will not allow the glove to misshape or breakdown over time. In the palm, the X900 glove also features a reinforced palm which helps reduce stingers in the palm, but also allows the glove to snap closed for a break in feel.
The backhand has the Free Flex cuff which protects the back of the hand when covering the puck, but gives the goalie unrestricted movement when shooting or moving about the crease.
Bauer achieves the 60 degree break on the Vapor X900 glove by utilizing the comfort edge on the thumb gusset and liner which gives a comfortable feel on the fingers and thumb but also grips when needed. The palm of the hand has been redesigned to close like the spine of a book and provide a game ready feel right out of the box.
Bauer includes their Deep Hybrid T pocket which gives the amazing stability when open, but also allows for ease of closure. This shape makes for a large catching surface which cradles the puck upon impact and even provides more visibility when catching the puck.
