Bauer Scan Data

Recommended Posts

Here’s the scan data for Bauer over the last year. This is from player skates. 

Supreme Player = Vapor Goal

Vapor Player = Supreme Goal 

Nexus = You need custom! 

My point? The Average person should start with Vapor is ordering online, looking used, etc.

Interesting, but could you possibly unpack this a bit more? 

Vapor is a more generous fit. There’s more volume to the boot, so it can accommodate more feet shapes

I tried this. Told me to go into the Vapor 1X in 7EE and the fit was bag on, perfect.

I figure I'm not understanding why Bauer would have such drastically different fit profiles between goal skates and player skates. Kinda infuriating, actually.

Same here. If I would know this earlier I would try to buy some Vapors instead of 1S. For me it's just put customers in confusion. They could use different names for goal skates if you did changes in overall fit of the skates.

It 100% doesn't make sense. The goalie skates also are not in the scanning machines yet. That is coming this summer. Once that comes this summer, many of these issues will go away. The machines will tell people what model to get and take a lot of the guess work out of it

As for why this happened? Bauer didn't always have 2 lines of goal skates. For awhile it just Supreme, then Vapor XXX and Supreme, then just Supreme, then just Pro or Elite, Then Supreme and Reactor, and now Supreme and Vapor

The reality is that with all that change it just sort of evolved this way

Great post! I'm in S190s now which are my first pair of Bauers ever (always wore Graf w/ the excpetion of 1 pair of CCM Tacks)... and while they're a good skate and they fit decently well in the heel and toe box... the extra room towards the top of the boot would be nice. No matter how many methods of tying my laces I've tried... my ankles get sore. Might be looking into 2Xs when available... or just the 1X as they'll be discounted.

Well, regardless of Bauer's lack of logic in their approach, I appreciate the clarification and diligence on your part.

It is frustrating.  I ordered 1S's in a EE width and didn't begin to have enough room.  After picking up a few hours here and there at our LHS I found out they can punch boots, and after having that done I FINALLY have enough room.   I never even considered the Vapor line because I just assumed the Supreme was more of a volume fit, and the Vaper was more form fitting, just like the player skates.

You can scan goalie skates too. 

There should be more room in ankle part in Vapor goalie skates than Supreme,  but it doesn´t mean Vapor Goalie = Supreme player.

I did a scan like 6 months and it didn’t have Goalie. 

Bauer told me goalie scans were coming with 2X line 

When did you encounter a scanner with goalie boots?

and fair point on the my “math” not being fully accurate on the fits...

but it’s an easy way to remember that Vapor goal is more generous or if you were Supreme player skates, you might need Vapor goal

Goalie scan came few months ago. But you can´t order custom goalie skates. I think that option will come with 2X
