Shock Absorption Wheel

Eastpak produces bags and luggage concepts for a global market. They offer their young and active target market innovative products with a 30-year guarantee, which means every part is thoroughly stress-tested before it reaches store shelves.

Smidesign designed the hardware for Eastpak’s Resistance series. Shown here is the Shock Absorption Wheel. With these wheels, handling on uneven surfaces is improved and the typical swerving behavior of wheeled luggage is a thing of the past.
