IT's the angle of the skate IMO like how the boot is shaped.
ANd the Vector Pro certainly does not feel lighter than the Vapor when you skate in it AT ALL. When I first used the Vapors going from the Vectors, they felt so light. And the ability to get more out of your stride is better because when skating in them, I was so used to a certain distance with the Vectors, that I had to really try hard to control how fast I was going at first.
