NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Briggs & Riley, the independently-owned, global brand that’s the travel authority in the luggage space, has announced the next phase of its smartly designed Transcend collection: Transcend VX™. The new breakthrough features a variable expansion option, enabling travelers to tailor and customize capacity to suit their needs. Meticulously engineered as with all their products, Transcend VX™ cases expand to the desired height up to 2.5 inches, yet retain their structure and shape while packing and traveling. Travelers no longer have to fuss with zippers, alas packing has never been easier with this unique feature. Transcend has proven functionality for faster, easier getaways with its lightweight, effortless features.
“We are thrilled to introduce the next elevation of our signature Transcend collection,’” said Briggs & Riley CEO Richard Krulik. “Design, functionality and style reach new heights – and expansion levels! – with our VX™ feature.”
Available in stores June 2017, the sleek new Transcend VX™ collection spinners, made with ultra-durable nylon two-tone and trimmed in PermaSquare fabric, will be available in multiple sizes: 21”, 22”, 26”, 29” in addition to a 14” rolling cabin bag. All will be available in three dynamic colors: Merlot, Slate and, back by popular demand, Rainforest. The cases all pair seamlessly with soft companion pieces including a clamshell cabin bag, shopping tote, and cargo backpack.
In addition to the variable expansion system, Transcend VX™ spinners feature soft-touch handle grips which are ergonomically designed for maximum comfort, SmartLink® system to attach one hard sided bag to another for easy transport, SpeedThru Pockets to hold small items at security checkpoints, YKK® self-repairing zippers, double spinner wheels for the smoothest ride, and Briggs & Riley’s signature Outsider® handle which provides a flat packing interior thanks to the absence of a bar inside the bag.
Briggs & Riley is the only luggage brand to offer a lifetime repair guarantee on all bags, including the new Transcend VX™ collection. Transcend VX™ can be found in North America, the UK, Germany, Japan, China and the Middle East at more than 600 fine specialty retailers, select e-tailers, select high-end department stores and online at www.briggs-riley.com.
