With the ECO XL we are elevating the standard of foldable basket designs, from all points of view. From the materials used, to the attention to detail, to the innovative features it offers and its final weight and size. The structure has been designed for offering an unparalleled level of protection to its occupants. The aerospace titanium welded structure delivers ultimate strength, with unmatched elasticity and shock absorbing characteristics. The 4 side walls have a special lightweight composite honeycomb sandwich inside, for superior impact resistance with an additional shock absorbing foam on the inside. All walls have special attaching points for fixing your gas tanks or the VTU battery. The floor is CNC cut from an anti-slip composite honeycomb sandwich that offers both resistance, longevity and low weight. ible poids.
