The Bauer Vapor 1X Lite Stick is the lightest, most versatile and quickest releasing Vapor stick ever! Compared to the 2016 1X; the 1X Lite has an 11% faster release, 20% more hosel stability and is 20 grams lighter weighing in at 397 grams (in senior).
While Vapor has been one of the best quick-release sticks on the market, Bauer sought to make it even more versatile so it can skillfully adapt to any situation, any time. The solution is the QRT+ Technology that provides better stability through the hosel. The 1X Lite now has reinforcing asymmetrical layers of carbon through its taper that prevents it from opening up by 20% compared to the 2016 1X.
The blade of the 1X Lite is a key upgrade that speeds up the shot release, reduces weight, improves balance and increases durability. Bauer used 13% thinner carbon fiber layers and optimized the layering process, which removed 7 grams of weight from the blade and sped up the shot release by 11%.
