RATINGS & REVIEWS

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good skate overall These x7.0's replaced a five year old pair of Bauer XXX's. The x7.0 seems to be identical to the XXX but evolved and improved at the margin over the last 5 years. I think the price point of approximately $450 is the same. The boot is largely the same. I will say both the boot and the tongue on the x7.0 are stiffer though. They are definitely light. These modern boots are not comfortable. At least Bauer offers three different fits now, as opposed to narrow and narrower from a few years ago. Even if you are used to a certain boot now, I would encourage you to try on the other fits (Vapor, Nexus, Supreme all fit differently). My biggest beef with these modern boots is they dont last. I am comparing the x7.0s and XXXs to my previous two pair Micron Mega 10-90 Pros (8 years of daily usage) and Bauer 5000s (10 years of 1-2x per week usage). That said, they are so much lighter and stiffer that the trade off is worthwhile. I dont think they offer any better protection. Getting hit on the foot with a slapshot still hurts. Ouch. So while I've only skated on the x7.0s maybe five times now in the last couple weeks, I expect they will last the same 5 years my XXX's last of 1-2x sessions per week, which is not impressive. My XXX's cracked on the toe where the boot meets the toe cap. My teammate has the same skates that are about the same age and he has the same crack. Overall its a good skate and I would recommend it, but it is not a perfect skate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I'm Impressed I bought these a couple of weeks ago. The initial fitting was rough but after they were baked, they fit like a glove. The first few uses were difficult to get used to. After about five uses, they're great. They feel a little narrow, but I've adjusted. I recommend the high Vapor skate sock with these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best skates ever! I skate almost 5 times a week and these skates are perfect for me! They are very light weight and mostly for players looking at speed! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for new skates!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All The Skate You Could Ask For This skate is almost identical to the X-60. Great support, protection, comfort and looks, it has it all ,at a reasonable price for a high end skate. The tongue is nicely padded with an insert for great lace bite protection. The Tuuk holder and blade compliment the boot and is the most preferred combination for pro players. The inside liner has two distinct sections that give you great comfort and moisture wicking properties and the boot moulds to your foot shape after only a few skating sessions even without heat moulding. The fit is a little wider than previous Vapor skates but if you have an extra wide foot you might want to look at the Supreme line equivalent. ( One 100) This skate can be used right up to the pro level and my guess is it will prove to be a very durable skate even with frequent use at a high level of play. This is a great skate for those whose budget won't allow you to purchase the higher end APX but personally I believe it's more than enough skate for most of the players at higher levels of play.

PRODUCT Q & A

would these skates fit a person with wide feet?

Asked by: Heipfam
Reebok skates have been known to run slightly wider than other manufacturers. If you have a shoe size that runs wider you would need a EE width.

light skates

what does the heavy footed player want what kind of skate??
Asked by: Anonymous
Skate choice is always based on personal preference, so it's hard to tell a customer what they should purchase. Some players don't like to deviate from the brand they have used from the start. Switching to a different manufacturer of skates can be a tough transition if you're not skating a few times a week. The lightest skate on the market currently is the Bauer NXG at 1.45 lbs. for a size 8. All of the listed weights we have for our skates are weighed at size 8 for senior.

What size should I buy for my son who takes a UK size 10 shoe?

I am told that skates should be 1/2 a size down from shoes, so that would make it 9.5, and I believe US sizes are 1 up on UK? I am assuming therefore that a US size 10.5 would be right for my son? Can you please advise. Thanks, James
Asked by: Anonymous
Converting a 10 UK is equal to a 10.5 U.S. shoe size. So therefore his skate size would be a size to a size and a half down from the 10.5. You are looking at a 9 or 9.5 sized hockey skate for your son. I would say the 9.5 should be the best fit.

Asked by: steamboat
The vapors are built for quick footed player looking for speed, whereas the Supreme line is designed for power and maximizing your stride.

are these skates stiff like the apx's?

Asked by: Anonymous
They have the same stiffness throughout the entire Vapor line, so they would have the same fit as the APX.

what is the difference between the apx and the x 7.0?

I used to wear the one90s . Loved them . Hated the total ones, too bulky . So i switched to vapors. Very comfy, but i skated faster in the supreme. So im hoping there is some middle ground here with one of these new models.
Asked by: Anonymous
The fit of the APX is essentially the same as the X 7.O. The new Vapor models are slightly wider than previous models but still not as wide as the Supreme line. This makes the Supremes feel slightly bulkier even though on the outside they are fairly streamlined. Basically the Vapors are made for a slightly slimmer foot although the difference may not be evident to a lot of players.

Weight difference

What actually is the weight difference between the x60 and x7.0. For example in a size 5.5. Thanks
Asked by: Anonymous
The weight difference between the sr x60 skates and the sr 7.0 skates is very slight. The sr X60 skates weigh about 1.75 lbs while the 7.0 skates weigh about 1.80 lbs. This will vary with different size skates.
