Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Stick

So light, it feels like nothing

This Bauer Vapor 1X Lite is designed for elite puck-handlers to fly through defenders and keep goalies guessing with a deadlier, even quicker release than ever before.

The Vapor 1X Lite, is Lite by name and light by nature. The first thing you’ll notice when picking the stick up is how light it really feels. Hence the advertising tagline Bauer has been using for the stick, “So light, it feels like nothing.” 

By constructing the 1X Lite using Advanced Carbon Layering (ACL), Bauer have shaved 15g off the weight of the previous 1X stick which was already super lightweight. This stick is designed for elite puck-handlers to fly through defenders and keep goalies guessing with a deadlier, even quicker release than ever before.

The 2017 VAPOR 1X Lite features new QRT+ technology, which uses extra carbon fiber layers to reinforce the taper zone where the shaft becomes the blade. The result is 20% increased blade stability from the previous 1X stick. Blade stability translates to less twisting, and opening of the blade, resulting in better one-timers and pass control. 

The TeXtreme Shaft Technology creates a lightweight, responsive and durable stick. Bauer has incorporated Advanced Carbon Layering which uses thinner and stronger internal carbon fiber layers to reduce weight but also improve durability.

With the weight savings provided by ACL technology mentioned earlier, the 2017 VAPOR 1X Lite delivers an 11% improvement in taper recoil — which means an 11% faster release for you, and 11% less time for goalies to react to your shot.

The Monocomp construction is a true 1-piece construction which maximizes energy transfer from handle to blade. Unlike 2-piece sticks, this 1-piece allows for even more energy transfer for more powerful shots.

Bauer uses eLASTech resin to help stop cracks from spreading once they occur and keep the stick feeling newer for a longer period of time.
