Tumi launches Tegra-Lite Max

Tumi Tegra-Lite Max luggageSeptember 10, 2014: Tumi has launched new styles within its Tegra-Lite lineup of durable and fully-functional hardside travel cases with the launch of Tegra-Lite Max.

Providing the traveler with a myriad of new packing features, including an exterior front pocket and zippered expansion capabilities, this travel bag incorporates lightweight design with the most innovative materials.

Key advancements include an exterior U-Zip Pocket, expansion capabilities, double 360° wheels, a new DurafoldTM construction, and Tumi’s patented X-Brace 45 handle system. A differentiator from standard hardside cases, the U-Zip exterior pocket is built to house easy-access essentials and expand inwardly, providing the traveler with additional packing capacity for small items. Structured with a slim profile, the U-Zip pocket incorporates Tumi’s signature ballistic nylon in the gusset which is pleated to maintain dimensions, a monogram patch and leather trim detailing. The zipper-to-zipper expansion capability offers up to 2” of additional packing space.

Newly designed, patent-pending double 360° wheels are recessed into the body of the packing cases with benefits including stable and superior multidirectional navigation, less friction and a roomier interior compared to carry-on bags with surface-mounted wheels. Tegra-Lite Max wheels are 2.5 times the size of current Tegra-Lite wheels.

To optimize exterior capacity, the patent-pending Durafold construction method folds and reinforces the frames with heavy duty yet lightweight stitching and impact-resistant caps which provide superior corner strength. Tegra-Lite Max utilizes Tumi’s patented X-Brace 45 handle housing system. Made from lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminum, this advanced system forms a protective, impact-absorbing structure around the telescoping handle tubes within the case. Three handle height options allow for easier maneuverability and convenience.

The interior of each Tegra-Lite Max case features a tie-down strap system and water-resistant lining to safely secure personal belongings. A high-gloss, scratch resistant finish is the final layer of design available in five colour options: T-Graphite, Sunrise, Baltic, Charcoal and a woven Herringbone pattern.
