This is our sixth product, with six wheels and a handle angled at 66 degrees. Thus, we decided to name it “the SIX.”
The SIX was created for you, the modern traveler. G-RO’s unique take on 4-wheel luggage is the result of unparalleled innovation, incorporating the highest principles of industrial design, engineering and material science. After years of multidisciplinary research and hundreds of thousands of miles of travel, G-RO developed the concept of ‘push’ luggage.
With the new push configuration, the user’s body weight acts as a counterbalance, requiring zero additional energy to roll the bag. It makes maneuvering through crowded places, and navigating through narrow airplane aisles, as easy as pushing a baby stroller.

PUSH FORWARD – Changing the Rules of the Game
This bag was created for effortless travel: what does this mean and how does the SIX do it?
The SIX was designed to always be pushed forward, virtually eliminating all the effort required when using traditional luggage. When we lug or roll other bags, we use muscle groups we don’t activate regularly. This can create major pain and discomfort. Pushing forward concentrates the entire activity on the main muscle groups we already use on a daily basis. As a result of this design, the SIX is the healthiest travel bag ever created. All travel-related pain – in the wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, elbow, and back – is eliminated. It makes travel truly effortless.
Forming a Perfect Rectangle
One advantage of the hard-shell design is the ability to design the bag so it fits perfectly within the required dimensions for a carry-on bag. The SIX utilizes every cubic millimeter of the 22”x14”x9” dimensions for packing space or the components of the bag. Even when overpacking, the bag will compress your belongings to the allowed size and will always fit in the sizer and the overhead bin – no surprises when you arrive for your flight!
The SIX will roll and maneuver on many different terrains and surfaces without ever needing to pick it up and carry it. If the terrain is a bit rough, simply apply a small amount of pressure on the handle (extend the main handle all the way up for improved leverage) to lift the spinners from the ground, and the bag will roll on its back axle-less wheels to smoothly conquer any terrain. That’s right – we encourage you to pop a wheelie with the SIX!
The SIX is a super spacious bag. By recessing all of the components into the polycarbonate shell, lowering the bottom and lifting the top, we optimized the internal volume for a carry-on. We kept the internal compartmentalization simple and clean to reduce the weight and the complications of packing. The SIX offers 38L of pure packing volume.
Since our first project, G-RO has been recognized for its large-diameter, axle-less wheels (which never break and come with a lifetime warranty). We have developed world-class expertise in the field of luggage wheels. We have now taken that expertise to the next level and have conquered the spinner wheel. Specifically for this bag, we developed durable full-bearing wheels, complete with lightweight and silent polyurethane tires for unmatched rolling. The combination of two of our signature GravityRoll™ wheels in the back and two of our new, custom G-RO spinner wheels in the front creates a bag that rolls like nothing on the market.
Each of our wheels has passed rigorous testing, which simulates real-life abuse, and we guarantee them for life.
We angled the main handle at precisely 66 degrees for effortless steering. This handle is made of magnesium tubes and coated with a protective layer of oven-cured paint for lightness, structural strength, and durability.
The SIX’s main handle features a unique mechanism that splits the handle in half, with a special lock to make sure it’s firmly locked when in use, and a patent-pending “throttle grip” for extension.
We used 2 single-tube profiles for this bag, due to its special function and configuration, and used magnesium instead of aluminum to reduce the weight.
All handles are recessed in the shell for impact protection and increased durability. The main handle is recessed at the corners into a special casing that protects the handle from impact.
This revolutionary handle has passed a wide range of tests and meets or exceeds industry standards for strength, functionality, and durability.
Tough and Durable
The SIX has been tested and passed a series of aggressive tests that simulate both real-world and extreme scenarios. We do this in order to make sure the bag we deliver to you will endure and last.
The SIX And TSA
The SIX is equipped with a TSA-compliant lock – with one slide of the lever, the bag’s aluminum channel is locked in two locations.
To open the SIX, you first open the lock on the handle and then slide the main lock upwards to unlock it. To lock it, you will lock the bag first, making sure none of the contents are trapped in the aluminum channel, and then lock the main handle sections together.
