The G-RO Suitcase’s all-terrain wheels, made of aerospace-grade polymers, allow users to carry luggage easily over snow, sand, cobblestones, and curbs. Israeli industrial designer Netta Shalgi co-founded the company Travel-Light Ltd in 2010 with a mission to use novel methods in order to redesign travel and increase mobility. The G-RO was born from his curiosity about how we move through the world and how to make it easier to get around.
At MoMA Design Store, we offer the most cutting-edge products that use tech to enhance everyday life. Every item that is selected is product-tested using real-life scenarios, and reviewed by MoMA design curators to ensure that it passes our ultimate litmus test: Is this design truly useful? If it didn't exist, would the world miss it?
With this revolutionary suitcase, the wheel has been reinvented- literally. Because of their larger diameter, the G-RO's axel-less wheels support the load closer to its center of gravity, so the bag balances better and feels significantly lighter when you pull it. The all-terrain wheels allow it to move easily over snow, sand, cobblestone and street curbs. The wheels are also on the outside, creating a larger packing space. Made of super-strong aerospace and firearm-grade polymers, the wheels strengthen the walls of the bag.
