After three years in development and 15 generations of design, the Integrous Frame and suspension is the result of unrelenting passion, detail, excellence, and success. This quality design is the pinnacle in ultralight backpacking frames and suspensions. The triaxial carbon fiber structure combined with additional strategically placed composite materials provides the greatest strength to weight ratio on the market. We are confident in delivering a frame that is not only comfortable, but provides the ability to haul extremely heavy loads. The key to the frame’s design is its shape. This allows the heaviest load to be positioned in the center of your back by spreading the weight over your hips, minimizing muscle fatigue and shoulder strain. To stay cooler in hot conditions, the shape maintains air flow around your back. The frame also follows the natural curvature of your spine, providing extreme comfort in all conditions.
The soft goods are made up of primarily 500D Cordura. We use YKK waterproof zippers. Duraflex hardware is used for all buckles. Expandable mesh is used for the expandable pockets.
Initial Ascent is confident that our products will meet and exceed your expectations. We test our products to failure so you don't have to. We offer a 100% lifetime warranty for any material defects and workmanship to the original purchaser. For any damages outside of normal wear, we can repair it at a reasonable cost. The Integorus Frame has a LIFETIME GUARANTEE.
We are currently working on releasing a camo model in 2019.
