By pushing the boundaries of design & innovation, Lite-Shock: the lightest Samsonite hardside collection to date, with the cabin size Spinner 55 weighing an extraordinary 1.7kg.

Throughout the brand’s history, Samsonite has paved the way for luggage design and the Lite-Shock collection is no exception.
