THE FIRST LUGGAGE IN THE WORLD MADE OF BIOCOMPOSITE
EPIC PhantomBIO - More sustainable, stronger, and lighter through the use of Trifilon BioLite material and VTT injection moulding technology.
We are proud to introduce a beautifully new shell material for luggage on its exclusive Phantom platform. Phantom, as a unibody VTT design, is literally oozing with that something special that has changed the way we see things. You can truly feel with Phantom that it’s something extraordinary, and this special new BIO-version is what we feel is the best Phantom we’ve ever made. The new PhantomBIO is borne of EPIC’s ongoing mission to create and produce products that are more sustainable in many ways, including environmentally. This beautiful new material that we are so happy to introduce in this context is called BioLITE. The Swedish materials innovation company, Trifilon, manufactures BioLITE material in Sweden. Trifilon is a crazily dedicated group of engineers and production specialists that share the values of EPIC, and have a burning love of creating materials which are performance superior and make less impact on our environment. The BioLITE material used on PhantomBIO is industrial hemp enriched. The resulting composite is both lighter and stronger than traditional polypropylene due to the hemp fiber’s ability to reduce density while engaging the polymers on a molecular level. Further, the unique Re:FRESH lining structure that PhantomBIO is equipped with is removable, washable at 40° (and can be then be frozen to eliminate any risk of critters after your trip to destinations where critters may prevail), and is produced with a 55% organic cotton / 45% hemp organic textile. EPIC PhantomBIO is also equipped with EPIC’s true and strong 7 year Full Armor Warranty that even covers third party (read airline!) damage to the shell during the warranty period.
