SOLO introduces Shock Stop

SOLO released Shock Stop technology that protects the contents of rolling cases. SOLO created Shock Stop, a patented spring technology that absorbs shock while bags are being wheeled.

Made of black ballistic poly with a water resistant lining, both Shock Stop bags feature the Shock Stop wheels along with a telescoping and locking handle system.

The Shock Stop bags are currently available in two Classic styles:

  • SSA901 Shock Stop Laptop Portfolio – This bag includes an airport security check pocket for access to boarding passes and tickets, a dedicated key hook, and stretchy Digital Asset Pockets for mp3 players and other personal electronics. The stretchy elasticized laptop section secures and protects up to a 15.4” laptop and a handy front zip down file organizer section stores and organizes personal accessories. 
  • SSA902 Shock Stop Rolling Laptop Case – The SSA902 features an access magnetic-close front pocket, a key hook and stretchy Digital Asset Pockets for mp3 players and other electronics. An elasticized laptop section snugly holds a 15.4” laptop and a file organizer protects files and papers. An additional rear compartment offers an extra file compartment and an overnighter section with an elastic closure to keep clothes neat and protected. 

The Shock Stop bags will be available at Staples in Fall 2007. Please visit to view the entire SOLO line.
