If you need peace of mind when flying with your Brompton, then look no further than the B&W folding bike hard case. Based around a sturdy alloy frame and a hard, but lightweight plastic shell, this bike box can take severe punishment, so your bike doesn’t have to. Underneath this hard exterior, the interior walls of the box are filled with foam padding, to minimise the bike rattling inside the case during transit.
Despite all this protection, this box only weighs 6.8kg, meaning that travelling with this case is a breeze. With two inline caster wheels at the base and the telescopic handle, the B&W folding bike hard case looks, feels and rolls just like a regular suitcase. Fitted with two TSA locks at the top, and a riveted strap for increased security, you can rest in the knowledge that your bike will be safe throughout your journey, and ready to ride once you reach your destination.

B&W Folding-Bike Hard Case
This case is perfect! Fits my Brompton like a glove and leaves enough room for some tools, a few articles of clothing (including jacket) and a pair of shoes. Upon arrival at our destination it even looks like TSA inspected the contents of my bike-case during transit and they were able to re-pack the bike & other items without an issues. Awesome bike-case and I strongly recommend for anyone looking to travel by plane with the Brompton.
I bought this hard case for my 2017 Brompton M6L with telescopic seatpost. Surprisingly, the bike was too big to fit in the case unless I completely removed the saddle (which is a standard Brompton saddle) so the case was essentially not much use to me so I returned it. The quality is quite good but it's just a bit too small which seems to be a major failure from the designers. Perhaps newer Brompton models are slightly larger than older ones as most pics of this case show a much older Brompton inside?
Tight fit for some models
Me and my wife have been using these hard causes for touring with our bromptons for the past two years. We have a couple of P6R bromptons. The P handle and the racks combined make the bike difficult to fit in the case. I have to force the lid shut and after closing I can feel the bulge of the handle on the lid. This kind of defeats the purpose of the hard case as any pressure on the lid is directly transmitted to the bike inside. B&W can improve the design by doing away with the pull-out handle as the groove for the handle takes around one and a half inch from where the hubs rest on the suitcase, the place of the maximum thickness of the folded bike. They should put four wheels at the bottom and put a pull handle as in their folding hard case.
Saved My Bike
I have traveled with my bike for years now and this case has been wonderful. I can pack a few light things in with it and check it through as regular luggage on the plane. I am able to get to hotels using public transit as it is very maneuverable. About 3 years ago I arrived at my home airport to find my case busted. It looked like an elephant had stepped on it with a big hole on top and the locks busted. But, it did its job and my bike was not scratched. The airline didn't ask a single question, they just sent me a check to replace it, which I did with a new one that has been working fine. The only thing I would recommend to the manufacturer is to beef up the latches. Sometimes I find them open when I pick it up, but thanks to the velcro straps the case is still closed.
Bike fitted in perfectly, there is space for other items but obviously would increase the weight. With just the bike, it comes in under the 20kgs for standard luggage allowance. Booked mine in as standard luggage with no problems at all, arrived and returned in perfect condition, no scuffs to the case etc.
Very good but can be better
It’s a very good case overall The only part missing is having 4 wheels instead of 2 When I travel I usually have another bag with me and usually handling two bags it’s much easier if the bigger which is this one has 4 wheels
B&W folding-bike hard case
fast delivery quick and easy return process
Good, but not perfect.
Won't take a 2017 S6R Brompton with an extended seatpost unless the seat is removed. Will take one with standard post (easily) or telescopic post (barely). Otherwise fits the S6R with miles to spare. No need to remove pedals or any other bits. L or E models might not have an issue with the extended seatpost but cannot test this. External carry handle protrudes outside the lines of the case. Seems strong but will get hit in transit. Needs to be spring loaded and recessed, which if done correctly would allow slight increase in case height and eliminate the seatpost length issue across the board. Telescopic handle is a bit weak.
Hi. I bought this travel case for my vacation. I traveled from Calgary Canada to Seoul South Korea. When I picked it up, my brompton bike was still in there very safely and securely. This case is very sturdy and strong. This case saved my bike lol!! Oh and delivery was so fast!!
This case looks great but I have not used it yet. I like that it was additional velcro straps to ensure that the case remains closed in case the locks fails. It comes with two keys to lock/unlock the case. I'm not sure if TSA can open these locks if they are locked though. Makes me nervous putting it through security unlocked but probably just me. Case is made in China and the quality is really good. I thought there would be more padding inside so we'll see how it protects my Brompton after several trips this coming year. I think I'll add more padding on my own just to be safe. I've seen this case for almost twice the price so this company did great! If you are not in a hurry and have about 3 weeks to wait for it, get it. Shipping was slow from Amsterdam to California USA. Thank you for the great service!
