‘gig pack’ backpack scooter by gustavo brenck

‘gig pack’, the work of brazil-based designer gustavo brenck, is a convertible scooter backpack for everyday use. the aluminum device is attached to a nylon backpack, complete with notebook compartment. when not in use for travel, the scooter’s rear segment is folded inside the backpack, nonetheless retaining space for other items. for riding, a user simply zips apart the backpack, fastens the front and back wheels, and secures all bag straps to prevent them from getting caught on the ground.

as a scooter, ‘gig pack’ sustains a weight of up to 90 kilograms. its large rubber wheels offer increased durability.

‘since when folded its size is of a regular backpack,‘ brenck reflects, ‘now there are no more excuses not to use alternative transportation and avoid traffic.‘
