The Bauer Vapor APX2 Shin Guards are the premier model in the Vapor Line, showcasing all of Bauer's top features. The new 37.5™ Technology and AeroLite™ Foams provide players with a professional-level of lightweight protection with a liner that aggressively works to evaporate sweat.
The APX2 is based off giving the player the best mobility without sacrificing protection, so keeping the pad lightweight was a must. The Vent Armor composite is used throughout the shin to enhance rigidity while keeping the pad lightweight. New to Bauer's protective line is the Aerolite™ foam located on the calf guard. Aerolite™ is 30% lighter than other high-density foams, just as protective, and doesn't absorb water like other HD foams.
The other cool feature we see in the APX 2 is the integration of the 37.5™ technology into the mesh liner. 37.5™ uses your body heat to evaporate the moisture from the gear and releases the heat as well. The liner is removable so you can wash it, which will also rejuvenate the anti-odor feature from the 37.5™ technology.
Thermoformed comfort foam makes up the knee donut, giving you a customized fit while the 3-strap system with a top and bottom anchor strap gives you a comprehensive hold. In addition, Bauer integrated the Free Flex shin cap which is a separate piece on the bottom of the shin that rotates depending on your stance so it doesn't restrict movement.

Comments: Probably best shin guards I've ever used. For better fit you can lift inner liner little bit higher. Just try to make skates contact area without liner at all.
