Victorinox New Hardside Collection 2020

The Airox Hardside Carry-On weighs just 2.3kg and passed the highest testing standards in the industry.

Victorinox, maker of the Original Swiss Army Knife, has unveiled its lightest hardside luggage.

Made of 100% pure, break-resistant polycarbonate, the Airox Hardside Carry-On weighs just 2.3kg and passed the highest testing standards in the industry, according to the company.

The case features an internal Butterfly Opening System, with two divider walls opening towards the outside. This enables customers to pack both sides of the suitcase without the mesh curtains getting in the way.

EXTERNAL FEATURES

Victorinox says external features such as a lightweight telescopic monopole handle system, which is engineered by the company and extra-quiet 60 mm Hinomoto wheels with silent-run Lisof tyres, ensure a smooth and stable journey.

Additional features include long-lasting YKK zippers, a Travel Sentry-Approved recessed combination lock and an Access Lock Combination Recovery Program. Each piece of luggage comes with a 1 + 10 year warranty, like all Victorinox Travel Gear cases.

The case features an internal Butterfly Opening System, with two divider walls opening towards the outside.

The full Airox Hardside range consists of three carry-on sizes and a medium and a large suitcase. Customers can choose from three colours which are orange, dark blue and light blue.

Thomas Bodenmann, Head of Travel Retail, Victorinox commented: “Our Travel Gear team spent 18 months developing and rigorously testing the Airox Hardside Collection, which embodies all the qualities for which Victorinox stands for — functionality, quality and iconic design. With this latest innovation in lightweight luggage, we’re well-placed to capitalise on the steady growth of the global luggage market.

“Representing 60% of Victorinox’s travel retail sales, Travel Gear is key to the brand’s growth and we’re confident that the Airox range will further boost sales in this important product category.”
