Bauer S18 Vapor 1X LITE PRO Gloves

The Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Pro Glove offers some of the best protection available on the market and utilizes a pro-stock construction. This 1X Lite Pro features a classic Nash palm and a one-piece cuff design that Bauer's pro athletes most commonly request. 

Another big difference between the Pro and Non-Pro 1X Lite is the protection package. Bauer used their advanced Poron XRD smart foam in the backhand pad, taking impact protection to the next level. This rate sensitive foam will form to the back of the hand over time but its main job is providing some of the best protection on the market. The rest of the gloves features elite dual-density foams and PE inserts, which includes the cuff, unlike the non-pro version. 

Completely new to Bauer this year is the split gusset materials. The 1X Lite Pro boasts the pro-preferred Nash fingertips with mesh finger webbings that keep protection where it needs to be without sacrificing breathability. These gussets, the palm and the liner all boast Sanitized and 37.5 technology that do a first-class job of keeping hands dry, cool and fresh.
