Tarnish every shooter's ego by snagging their would-be goals out of the air. The 60 degree break offers a full hand closure when you catch the puck and an all-new cuff shape provides for a better range of motion. There's also CURV Composite throughout the cuff and outer perimeter for improved durability and better structure when catching the puck, which you'll be doing frequently.
The Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Catch Glove makes it clear that Bauer is looking to not only improve the pads, but rather the whole set. Staying comfortable with a one piece glove and 60-degree break angle, adding a max depth pocket, this glove is comfortable to use right off the shelf. The new Catch Grip with ThermoCore creates a grip inside the glove to prevent slipping, essentially eliminating the need for inner gloves.
Bauer uses their C.O.R.Tech ST skin on the new Vapor 2X Pro Catcher. This promotes harder, faster rebound than normal blocker skin. Having used this technology for the past few years, Bauer is confident it gives goalies the edge they need over the competition. This technology works by having a faster recovery rate than other skin types, the faster the recovery, the faster and harder the puck will come off.
The glove stays comfortable and consistent with a 60 degree break, same as what was used on the 1X. This angle used by Bauer is more of a finger-close style, meaning when closing the glove, it is almost all in the fingers, this allows the glove to be more protective on the palm and minimize the amount of stingers you’ll get because of added Curv Composite.
