Great travel case

5

Completely satisfied with this case! It rolls easily and kept the bike secure without having to disassemble the entire bike. Because it’s on the lighter side, compared to other hard cases, the total weight with my bike was under 50lbs and flew at the cost of regular luggage. I did use a pool noodle for extra protection.

Mostly good with some major weaknesses

3

I've flown with this case several times, including intercontinental. The good : the shell is pretty tough, I haven't had issues with the case cracking as others have reported. Packing is pretty easy, you can do it in 30 mins after the first couple of times. The bad : the interior hardware SUCKS. All of it. The inserts to mount thru-axle wheels are too big and won't fit into any of my wheels. I improvised by using fender washers between the skewer and the wheels. Also, the straps and assemblies that are part of their "suspended frame system" are utterly worthless. They took some nylon straps, melted a hole through them, and then mounted the strap by sandwiching it between a tiny washer and the case. The melted nylon is not a durable solution - it immediately pulled through the tiny washer and dropped my bike during transit. If I hadn't removed the rear mech and hanger before transit, they would have been destroyed. I then grommeted the strap and affixed it with a much larger washer - this is an improvement, but is still coming apart due to the low strength of the nylon strap. My advice - grommet and washer the straps, but also put ample padding under your BB and chainstays. A sweater in a big zipper bag works well, or a polystyrene block. For a case of this price, they should provide more robust hardware.

Worked great

5

Solid case and easy to navigate through airports. As a new biker it was a bit challenging getting my XL Road bike into the case (take off seat, loosen all handle bar screws so I could twist it just right, getting wheels off, etc), but now that I’ve done it a few times it goes much quicker (reminder to anyone new to mark where your seat height, handle bars angles, etc sit so it’s easier to reassemble). Had a couple issues after my fist trip with losing a piece and customer service as great too. Note I had previously bought the soft shell so that I wouldn’t have to disassemble my bike as much, but returned it and and much prefer this case despite being slight more work.

Totaly fine experience

5

The case looks fine and feels sturdy, as expected. I still have not used it for travel. Customer service worked perfect when I ran into an issue with shipping. I am really happy with the help I got!

Could be better

3

I travelled with my gravel bike and it fit, though I had to loosen the handlebars as expected and then push them to fit in the box (I have a small bike). Pros - The box can take a good bashing from baggage handlers. My box was clearly thrown around quite a lot on my first trip with this box as there are chips taken out of it and plenty of scratches, however, the bike itself was in tact and with no damage. It's a bit smaller than expected which is a positive if you are thinking of taking it on trains in Europe. Cons - Two of the straps have broken already after a return trip. On the outbound trip, one of the connectors to the strap clasp inside was broken away from the inside of the case. The second strap on the return leg just separated. The external clasps are rubbish, I have no faith in those. Information regarding how to protect/store the bike with disc brakes is non-existent (I removed the discs to be sure). The handles on the box make lifting a bit annoying. You struggle to get a good grip on it.

Nice case

Case is great for traveling, everything fits perfectly even my Scott ultimate pro. It’s easy to carry and I felt like my bike is well protected.

Could Be Better

The case is reasonably made, but could stand some improvements. The case has a long piano hinge at the bottom. Unfortunately, the plastic material the case is made of is too flexible for the bottom and top to align well. Every time I close the case I have to wiggle the bits and parts to get them aligned to close. And typically I then notice that one of the straps is hanging out - even though I tucked them in before closing. The clasps on the side of the case are also weaker than those at the top - and they don't require a key, so TSA has a habit of forgetting to close them after inspection. My daughter bought the same case and her case broke on first use. For the price, I don't see a great value here.

Kept My Bike Safe

4

Just put this to the test on flights with multiple connections. Overall, the bike and all contents stayed just fine. The case did get a crack on the bottom near one of the coasters, which I will have to repair. Also, the nice little handle broke off the very first time I used it. This is definitely a point that the manufacturer wanted to save a few pennies, rather than create something that would easily fall apart. With all said, I’d probably still buy it again.

Fits larger bikes with ease

5

I am a 6’3” and 200 lb male that rides a 60 cm carbon fiber bike frame with extended seat post. I was worried if the bike would completely fit with ease. I was pleasantly surprised with the engineering of this case. There is a place for every component. With minimal breakdown efforts, I was able to fit my entire bike with room to spare for bike accessories. The case comes with a set of skewers to keep the tires locked in place. The included pads keep the tires separate from the frame to eliminate compression or rubbing. It was easier to remove both pedals, though, I think you only needed to remove one. Overall, I highly recommend this frame!
