New Technology Gives Boomers, Families and Professionals Pain-Free Travel

Just in Time for Spring — Four-Wheel Convertible Travel Cases
ELLWOOD CITY, PA — (MARKET WIRE) — 04/27/2005 — Atlantic Luggage has pioneered a travel technology that is changing the way Americans travel. Not since the introduction of the wheel has a travel innovation done so much for business and leisure travelers. QuadWheel® Technology, a convertible upright, eliminates travel-related strain and prevents luggage from tipping over.

The patented engineering behind the QuadWheel® technology converts a two-wheeled case into a sturdy, four-wheeled convertible. With a touch of a button, the two-wheeled case instantly deploys two additional wheels for a 53-degree, four-point stance for maximum stability and uncompromising mobility. When fully-loaded, QuadWheel® Technology can support up to 200 pounds of cargo and still glide easily — thanks to sleek wheels built on swivel casters.

Travelers are requesting luggage that meets busier and more complex travel demands. Business travelers want sturdier cases that won’t tip over, families need help managing multiple travel pieces, and Baby Boomers are calling for cases with better mobility,” said Anne Fleming, senior director of marketing for Atlantic. “For instance, shouldering a laptop and tote while maneuvering an Upright can put stress on your back, neck and shoulders. Using QuadWheel lets you stack luggage and removes the strain of carrying numerous bags — it means never renting an airport luggage cart again.”

QuadWheel® Technology is found on Atlantic’s newest collection — Convertible®.
