About

Built from premium grade carbon fiber, the same materials using for airplanes, supercars and the most premium of products.

Carbon fiber is renowned for it's extreme strength and lightweight. Unlike ABS, polycarbonate or aluminum; carbon fiber does not crush unless it's limits are reached. In our case, a minimum of 330 lbs. of force.

The interior design is for work and travel. We have designed the luggage for short business trips or weekends away if used without a checked luggage. The large rear sleeve can hold a standard laptop while the second sleeve is for an ipad/tablet or documents. The front section has placement holders for passport, pens, business cards etc.

All the usual features here with some new additions. Our LCD screen interacts with our touch sensitive button to provide many of our features without the use of the app.

Along with this is our new G-Force Sensor. This measures impact to the luggage and can be logged and used should damage occur from the actions of airport staff.

Our telescopic handles are one-piece designs made from carbon fiber, no mechanisms to break and jam.

The positionable hinge holds the luggage open at various degrees for ease of use. The other handy feature of our front facing clamshell design is documents and laptops can be easily extracted without needing to lay the suitcase flat.

  • Awesome Unique Design 
  • Carbon Fiber Composite 
  • Telescopic Carbon Fiber Rods with Aluminum Handles with No Mechanisms which can Fail
  • GPS Tracking, Self Weighing, USB Charging 
  • Alarm, G-Force Logging, Digital Lock 
  • Waterproof, Temperature/Pressure Sensors, Self Equalizing Pressure Valve
  • Black Carbon Fiber with Black, White or Silver Corners
  • 22" Tall x 9" Deep x 14" Width (56cm x 23cm x 35cm)  
  • Volume 8.5 Gallons (32 Liters) 
  • 7.5 lbs (3.5kgs) 
  • The Coolest and Only Carry-On you'll Ever Need!

Risks and challenges

1.) Due to carbon fibers inherently manual process, time management and manufacturing will be of the utmost importance to meet delivery deadlines.

We plan to handle this by predominantly being on the ground with all of our manufacturers. Living in Asia and being a short distance away by road or air will be of huge advantage.

2.) For the same reason, quality control must be very detailed and of the highest quality.

Nobody can be trusted to verify the quality of the product but our own team. Being able to visit the factory at the drop of a hat helps to ensure quality is up to standard and delivery is in a timely fashion.

3.) With the wide-range of functionality offered, keeping all teams and partners on track will require a close-eye on progress.

Most of our team is local to us, but some will be working remotely. Employing systems which track and budget for time allowance and deadlines will be vital to maintain our deadlines.
