The Backpack Motion System. Developed for Cyclists. Goodbye Gravity.

Nobody really likes carrying a backpack... it is a necessity. It restricts your movement while the weight of the load has an undesired effect on your skeleton, muscles and posture. In a word, it is exhausting. People are dynamic and constantly moving. As you move, any load will be continually transferred to your body and your shoulders will have to move this weight, constantly putting your muscles under strain. The more active you are, the greater the effect. Lower capacity day packs, touring packs and backpacks for athletes are based on an outdated design which ignores the influence of dynamic movement on carrying comfort. As ergonomic specialists, our target is to make backpacks as comfortable as possible. Our revolutionary backpack design – a direct result of our exhaustive studies – allows the upper body to move freely and independantly from the load. The semi-rigid frame transfers the load lower, to the body’s center of gravity, and to a point where the back’s movement is minimal. To achieve the desired freedom of movement for the upper body it was obvious that the shoulder harness system needed to be isolated from the load resulting in a brilliant and revolutionary solution.
