The P300 is a customizable backpack designed with simplicity and maturity—and a dose of sport, as well. Consumers can change out the front of the pack with one of three options, all included, depending on their need at the moment. Its removable laptop case let’s people tote their technology with them, and the attached flashlight illuminates even the darkest recesses in the pack.
The EBF E8 helmet features a shell, face shield and chin bar so the user can wear it closed, with the face shield open or with the chin bar open, as in an open-face helmet. When opened, the chin bar doesn’t block the rider’s view, and when closed it perfectly integrates into the overall shape of the helmet. Front and superior vents allow air to circulate inside the helmet and prevent condensation from accumulating on the visor.

The Bespoke Fairing is a mass customized set of parts that restores symmetry and natural contours to an amputee’s body. The process starts with a 3D scan of the surviving leg. With input from the amputee, the parts are customized with various color, material and finish options. Once applied to existing prosthetic limbs, the Bespoke Fairings communicate the users’ sense of style and taste, allowing them to connect with the artificial limb in a personal and emotional way.
“Stunningly beautiful! This is pure fashion that goes well beyond vanity to be the noblest self-expression for the amputee, evoking only admiration—no pity.” -Davin Stowell, IDSA, IDEA Jury Chair, Founder and CEO Smart Design
