Limited Lifetime Warranty-Luggage Bags
Biknd will repair - or - replace, at its discretion, any of its products found to be defective within the scope of normal and appropriate use and the product’s normal recommended lifespan. Biknd can, in no way, be held responsible for any costs, losses or damages incurred due to poor product treatment, misuse or handling that falls outside of Biknd recommendations and normal use.
The term “Lifetime” DOES NOT APPLY to the original owner’s lifetime. Biknd products are not intended to last the lifetime of the original owner. This terminology refers to the product’s recommended lifetime under normal use, taking wear and tear into account.
For example, a wheel bag that has been used consistently for 10 years, is most likely nearing the end of its “lifetime.” At this point, it may reflect its years of use, meaning signs of wear and tear, deterioration, and, as a consequence, possible tears, ruptures or breakages. These conditions (one or more) are not to be considered manufacturing defects, but rather standard wear and tear related to years of performing its primary function.
A manufacturing defect is unintended and generally appears early in the lifespan of a new or unused product. Each circumstance may vary greatly and be difficult to determine its origin. Therefore, discretion will lie with Biknd, to determine if the root of the cause is due to the product’s lifespan (i.e. wear and tear), or if it is indeed, a true unforeseen manufacturing defect.
It the case where a circumstance is determined to be due to a manufacturing defect, it is up to Biknd to decide whether the item in question be repaired or replaced. If a product is repairable, you will receive further instructions on how and where to ship the item. In this situation, Biknd will repair the product free of charge.
