VICTORIA, British Columbia, December 13, 2023 /CNW: ALUULA Composites Inc. (the “Company” or “ALUULA”) (TSXV: AUUA) is pleased to provide the following update on new partners showcased at the recent ISPO trade show in Munich.

● RockGeist announces ALUULA integration into its bike pack line up, as the first bike accessory brand featuring ALUULA.

● Naish, renowned windsports brand, launches its first ALUULA powered kite.

The world’s largest multi-segment trade show for sports and outdoor equipment, ISPO Munich, is a key opportunity for Aluula to showcase product innovation and emerging trends on the global stage.

This year, ALUULA’s booth at ISPO showcased the recently announced Arx’teryx partnership featuring ALUULA’s newly launched pack material program – a collection of ALUULA materials and assembly techniques aimed at the backpack and soft bag market. The ALUULA pack program uses only recycle ready materials to enable the world’s lightest, strongest bags, backpacks and soft luggage for all types of applications.

The unique composition of composite materials in the ALUULA pack program allows new manufacturing methods such as sew free seams, and thermo form shaping with no requirement for glue lamination.


In collaboration with ALUULA Composites, Arc’teryx previewed a concept backpack, which the Company believes can be a transformative innovation for the outdoor market. The Arc’teryx pack showcased new manufacturing technologies such as “no sew” and other new finishing techniques made possible by the unique properties of ALUULA. A key feature of the concept backpack is that it can be recycle ready at the end of its useful life.

Forged Aluula

Also on display at ISPO was an early access look at Forged ALUULA. Forged ALUULA uses scraps taken from the production of packs and other ALUULA products, which are then reworked and turned into Forged ALUULA, a new class of ultra strong, light hard composite made entirely with scrap / recycled polyethylene and the reclaimed ultra high molecular weight fibers.

During ISPO, the Company showcased Forged ALUULA for back pack frames, and other hard components that require low weight, stiffness and durability/abrasion resistance.

Durston Gear

At the ISPO trade show, Durston Gear, announced AlUULA’s first Outdoor product launch, the Wapta 30 frameless backpack featuring ALUULA Graflyte, Duralyte and ALUULA seam tape program. The combination of these ALUULA materials allowed Durston to reduce the weight of the back pack by 50%.

Founded and owned by Canadian entrepreneur Dan Durston, and located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, Durston Gear is emerging as a leader in ultra lightweight high performance tents and packs, with an active following of hard core outdoor enthusiasts around the world. The entire ALUULA team is excited to see the Durston Wapta 30 pack launch this winter.
