VAUDE Suspension System Technologies

We use many different technologies in our backpacks for optimal functionality.

The suspension system is the heart of every backpack. It makes the key difference when it comes to comfort and fit. VAUDE backpacks are high-performance products that are truly versatile.

 

Here’s a list of the suspension technologies that we use in our products :

Synergy Mold Light

Backpacks with the Synergy Mold Light suspension system were designed for alpine climbing and mountaineering in demanding terrain. The system is lightweight and offers maximum freedom of movement. A large ventilation channel that runs along your spine helps air circulate. Adjustable aluminum stays or an aluminum frame ensure stability and good wearing comfort.

F.L.A.S.H.

Your height and the length of your torso are important criteria for the optimal fit of a backpack. F.L.A.S.H. stands for Floating Length-Adjustable Shoulder Harness and it’s a patented system for adjusting the length of your backpack straps. The mechanism offers continuous adjustment for a perfect fit to the length of your torso.

Adjusting the straps correctly

F.L.A.S.H. stands for Floating Length Adjustable Shoulder Harness. With this adjustment mechanism you can easily adjust the length of the backpack straps.

For an optimal fit, the end of the shoulder strap should be just below your chest. Two systems are used to adjust the height of the shoulder strap attachment:

ADJUSTMENT: You can easily and quickly adjust the straps to fit your torso length by using the Velcro strap at the bottom of the suspension system. When you open the velcro fastener, the shoulder strap lock is released (1). Adjust the strap by pulling it out or pushing it in to reach the right length (2). Then reattach the velcro. Size markings on the outside of the velcro strap can help you determine the correct length.

Aeroflex X+

The Aeroflex X+ suspension system is designed for greater adventures and multi-day hiking tours with heavy loads. It features a precision adjustment for different torso lengths and an all-round aluminum frame that ensures stable load distribution. As with all Aeroflex systems, optimum ventilation is a key feature here.

Aeroflex Easy Adjust

For backpacks with Aeroflex Easy Adjust, the rear-ventilated back can be converted to a full contact back. The ventilation space at the back can be fully adjusted. More distance = optimal ventilation, less distance = better balance because the center of gravity of your pack is closer to your own center of gravity. This makes these packs truly flexible for all kinds of activities.

Aeroflex

Aeroflex suspension systems offer the best ventilation for backpacks. A stable mesh panel is attached to an extremely lightweight spring steel frame. The taut mesh ensures sufficient space between your back and the pack. It creates a generous ventilation space with optimal 3-way air circulation (from both sides and from underneath) for your back. The suspension system fits perfectly against your back no matter what your activity.

 

Backpacks with the patented Aeroflex suspension system are perfect for hiking trips and bike tours that require good ventilation of your back. The center of gravity is however farther out than it is with other packs that lie flat against your back.

VENT-TEX Ultralight

The VENT-TEX Ultralight suspension system was specifically engineered for road biking and mountain biking and/or day trips with a light load. The back panel was left out in this suspension system in order to reduce weight (without reducing the comfort level). The flexible suspension system follows your every move, whatever your riding position. Mesh padding along the spine ensures a comfortable fit, even on challenging trails. The padding doesn’t absorb moisture and it creates a large ventilation channel to keep air circulating across one’s back.

Vent Active Bike

The Vent Active Bike suspension system offers stability and comfort on day trips or multi-day trips with a lightweight to medium load. An ergonomic back panel (EMP) ensures for even load distribution and high pack stability. Ventilation channels in the padding keep air circulating effectively.
