Lets go into details.
1. Business chassis modifications
We modified complete chassis structure, invested in lots of new tools and processing technologies in order we can make best luggage scooter chassis possible. And we did it.Although all main chassis component stayed in aluminum, we have chosen aircraft aluminum alloy quality this time.
Lots of our effort was focused into eliminating any rattling noise when using Business on poor surface. Simply because its annoying! So, we integrated shock absorbers between all wheels and chassis. Done!
3. Adjustable steering spring feedback!
If you weight 50 or 150 kg, if you like your OLAF to be agile (soft spring feedback) in making corners or you prefer more elegant and smooth steering (hard spring feedback). Now you can adjust your steering feedback in limitless steps; needed tool will be added – see user manual for more info (by default we will position springs in soft spring feedback).
Antiskid surface: complete top board surface is covered with antiskid tape for your safety.
We modify everything not working best in previous models…and keep same what is working best; folding concept is something we remain almost the same.
In addition to limitless adjustment of steering feedback, we modify steering springs to operate in linear motion through complete steering range. We mean serious when we say we went into every detail.
We further improved our patented folding system with doubling the strength and safety of complete folding system by adding additional supports. By doing so, we limited the handle free movement and gain extreme folding system strength.
Additional folding lock
When folding Olaf board, we added additional safety lock – although OLAF is a carry-on luggage approved, sometimes its separated from you and goes through standard luggage drop off. In such cases, we advise using this additional lock.
5. Wheels & brake
We are keeping front wheels in 110 mm and rear wheels in 55 mm. New rear wheel bracket has been designed and rear wheel brake improved – thermal insulation between metal brakes (In heavy braking your shoe will not melt down). In addition, we installed best possible bearings to all wheels.
We went for all black now – as many of you wanted.
In order, your OLAF stands vertically safe also when fully loaded, we made that trolley stand extremely strong. Now, you do not need worry about tilting.
a) Case stoppers
Has it happened to you that you old OLAF (or any case actually) has been moving around in back of your trunk. Not any more:
b) Expandable case
Our case dimensions is limited via carry-on size limitations. However, in same case, we are not limited with this and we can expand case in order to pack for that extra day off.
c) Fast & safe access pocket
For safe and fast access to your valet, passport, tablet…
9. Certification – EN14619:2015
We have spent lots of weeks in past two years in our testing lab testing new improved chassis for static and dynamic loads.
10. Shipping & prices
As already said, although we made new OLAFs best of the best, we were able to bring the price down due to improved processing tehnologies and bigger production series. In addition, we have included shipping costs for EU (also tax for EU), US/Canada and most of Asian countries into basic price.
Production is already in full swing, we start shipping first orders in August.
We don’t send emails very often. We only post news when there is news. Like now when we want to talk about our latest improvements. None of which would happen if it wasn’t for you, our dear OLAF fans. Read through or skip to the last paragraph if you want to learn about our shipping updates. We’re not only better, we also ship faster! Hooray!
