Vaude launches 3D-knit sports pack - BikeBiz
Vaude has announced the release of the Trail Spacer 8 backpack, which features 3D-knit construction.

This, the brand claims, is the first time that a 3D-knit construction has been used for the back of a rucksack.

This technology that was utilised to construct the bag uses computer-controlled knitting machines that can produce even the most complicated types of mesh and patterns. The idea of a three-dimensional knit suspension system for backpacks was created at VAUDE’s research
department in southern Germany.

"The 3D knit construction is a world first and enables us to create completely new designs for the back panel,” commented

VAUDE UK country manager Chris Davison, “Using 3D knit enables us to take into account different pressure zones in the back area and even out the pack’s pressure distribution. It really is an incredible piece of kit."

The new suspension system, the Vent-Tex Spacerknit, is knitted from three yarns with individualized rigidity zones. The 3D-knit construction continues throughout the shoulders into the straps and allows the pack to be worn like a vest. The back section does not contain foam and is directly manufactured in southern Germany. In addition, there are no residual materials left over during the production process.

The Trail Spacer backpack has a volume of eight litres and weighs 475 grams. It will be available in Spring 2018.
