Description

 

Imagine a backpack not limited by gravity. One built with a weight-dispersion mechanism based on the suspension systems found in contemporary racecars, delivering a travel experience unaffected by bumps and vibrations — isolated from external irregularities to deliver a smooth and weightless trip.

World's First Backpack with 4-Point Independent Suspension

Introducing Project Zero-G: The ultimate backpack. With the world's first 4-point independent suspension - a dynamic system that maximizes comfort by minimizing weight – Zero-G offers the most comfortable and responsive wearable experience in the world.

The problem with today’s backpacks is their static design, making them both unresponsive to changes in motion and uncomfortable to wear. This issue negatively affects your movement, exaggerating weight and straining your back. Backpacks shouldn’t be a burden — they should make your life easier.

As modern adventurers, we found that we needed a backpack that would both lighten our load and adapt more flexibly to our constantly changing environment. That’s why we launched Project Zero-G. After over 18 months of meticulously considering all of the existing limitations of traditional backpacks and obsessing over every functional and aesthetic detail, we finally designed the backpack of our dreams, developing original wearable technology in the process.

 

 

 

Unlike conventional backpacks — which have stiff straps that stress the back while traveling over uneven terrain— Project Zero-G is equipped with a 4-point suspension system, allowing each strap to move independently in reaction to kinetic forces. This elastic transfer of weight absorbs shocks and reduces the effect of gravity, counterbalancing impact energy for a superior user experience. By developing this innovative suspension system, and paying a great deal of attention to aesthetic refinement, we’ve been able to create an aerodynamic backpack that minimizes load, enhances posture, and not only looks fast, but feels it.

Let our suspension take the weight, not your shoulders.

Project Zero-G distinguishes itself from every other backpack on the market through both its design and its unique suspension system. Each of our backpack’s straps has both an upper and lower suspension — independent shock-absorbing points that reduce stress by distributing impact. The tops of each strap are connected with durable bellows — springy and permanently attached — while the bottoms are interchangeable, letting you fine-tune your Zero-G’s suspension to match your load and activity. Just like a vehicle’s suspension is adjusted to its cargo (with harder springs used for heavier loads), Project Zero-G can be calibrated to compensate for any additional weight. From hard to soft, the included suspension sets offer 3 spring rates: heavy-duty, normal, and light.

Regardless of the intensity of your adventure, Zero-G technology will unburden your shoulders and smooth out your ride, delivering an unparalleled, gravity-negating backpack experience.

Even though the back constitutes one of the strongest muscle groups in the human body, it is extremely susceptible to injury. Consistent stress on the shoulders from carrying a heavy load can result in chronic lower back pain and spinal trauma that affects flexibility, mobility, and athleticism. The main goal of the Zero-G project was to create a system that protects the back by reducing the amount of pressure levied on your shoulders while you’re in motion; we were successful. Thanks to our proprietary suspension system, the effective force transferred to your shoulders while you walk, jog, or run is substantially reduced, and the faster you move, the greater the reduction in force. Students, travelers, and athletes will appreciate a 25% reduction in stress as they rush to class, through a terminal, or up a mountainside.

 

 

 

Distinctly modern, Project Zero-G champions minimalism and functionality. Its two main storage areas — a primary compartment and a utility hatch — can be navigated with just one hand, both saving you time and keeping you organized.

Opening wide like the hood of a car, Zero-G’s swivel hatch lets you instantly see all your accessories and essentials. Spacious and logical, this partitioned area includes a dedicated iPad compartment (ready for your mini or full-size device), pen slots (perfect for your multifaceted KP MultiPen), and a concealed pocket for your wallet.

Our backpack’s easy-access main section is hooded with a water-resistant top (in fact, the entire bag is 100% water-resistant, even its YKK zippers), keeping your stuff safe from the elements. Inside, you’ll also find a ring for attaching keys — which you can secure onto your KP Utility Hook II. And since the Zero-G’s main buckle is magnetic, you can snap it on and off single-handedly.

Sliding in sideways, your laptop has its own safe room that accommodates machines up to 15-inches in size and guarantees 360° protection. Your smartphone also has its own special hideout: a detachable travel pocket, furnished with magnetic snaps and a micro-velvet interior (available in 2 sizes, accommodating either an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus).

 

World's First Backpack with Protective EVA Base

Engineered to protect, Project Zero-G is the world’s first backpack designed with a water-and-shock-resistant EVA base. Like the soles of high-performance running shoes, this impenetrable EVA bottom is both durable and flexible. Protruding from its base are 2 elevated bumpers; as the Zero-G’s first points of contact with the ground, they enhance protection by creating a buffer between the Zero-G and any surface.

EVA stands for Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate

 

Innovative, elegant, and functional — with 12 individual storage compartments, an ultra-matte, scratch-proof PU leather exterior, and an interior covered in a 3D polyester matrix design — Project Zero-G is the next-generation backpack from KP’s ever-evolving line of groundbreaking products.
