BikeBox is an innovative lightweight hard-shell box that folds into minimal storage space. It’s easy-to-use, waterproof, strong, comes with guards & accessories and is fully recyclable — no wonder it won the 2019 Overall Start-up EURO BIKE Award!
You’re in good company. Brand Ambassadors Robyn de Groot (South African pro rider and 6 x SA XCM National Champion) and Stefan Garlicki (SA Pro Downhill Mountain Biker) travelling with their BikeBoxes — “So happy with my Bike Box, finally someone has developed a way to transport your bike that is safe, affordable and lightweight! It’s the best of everything!”, says Stefan.
How to travel with your BikeBox
BikeBox is the ideal travel case to bring your bike safely to any destination in the world — not once but over-and-over again. If a picture is worth 1000 words, a video is worth a book, so have a look at how to pack and travel with your BikeBox:
Founded right here in South Africa by passionate Adventure Racers Christine & John Collins, this BikeBox is an internationally registered design (USA: USD910440, EU: 006583985, RSA: F2018/01279). And they really have through of everything, see below 😊
SIZE: 80% less storage space needed
Because the BikeBox folds into itself for storage, you can even slip it under your bed when not in use! Dimensions are in centimeters (cm) and both the fully assembled (ready for bike travel) and the collapsed (ready for storage) numbers are shown.
- Small box: 120*78*25 (76*67*7) 5kg
- Large box: 140*80*30 (83*80*7) 6kg
- Tandem: 180*80*30 (80*102*8) 8kg
The LARGE box is typically used for MTB’s and E-bikes, while the SMALL box is perfect for Road Bikes and Tri Bikes. Gravel Bikes will depend on the size of your bike, wheels and extras (when in doubt, you might as well go for a large). And the TANDEM is a sleeker alternative than sticking together two cardboard bikes boxes, for sure. PS, the large box is exactly the dimensions we use at #bicyclecouriers when preparing quote. Did you know that we could also custom-make any dimension on your request? Give us a call today.
Your BikeBox includes the expandable and collapsible BikeBox itself, the Bike Guards (that can be order for disc or non-disc brakes), the Box-in-a-Box to neatly secure all your accessories, and the straps to secure your bicycle while in transit. The only optional extra is a wheelset, that you can easily fit to the bottom of the box, for wheeling the airport or while in transit.
WEIGHT: Half the weight of an average hardcover bike box
Total weight: 6kg and 5kg respectively (excluding accessories). Why is this important? No-more overweight charges… Most airlines have a weight allowance of 23 kg for bike transport. With our BikeBox weighing a mere 6kg, now you have a solid 17kg packing weight before you reach capacity. This means No more excessive surcharges at the Check-In. Yeah!
STRENGTH: Your bike must arrive undamaged
BikeBoxes are lightweight, strong, and durable and can withstand challenging conditions when in transit. It is also waterproof, because have you ever seen what happens to a soaking wet cardboard box? It is made from 100% waterproof Polypropylene sheeting (1200 GSM, or gram per square meter) which makes this box durable and resilient and keeps your bike safe during air travel.
EXTRAS: But wait, there’s more 🙂
Also included with every BikeBox is a set of Bike Guards (you can choose between MTB or Road/Tri (and also buy additional sets if required) – these are protective inners to cover cassette, crank, rear derailleur, skewers and wheel hubs! PLUS: You also get the very practical “Box-in-the-Box” for your bike accessories.
PRICE: Excellent value-for-money
BikeBox is 50% less expensive than the average bike bag and a whopping 75% less expensive than the average bike case. This means Low delivery costs due to reduced storage size and no extra luggage charges at the airport. With most other bicycle boxes on the market north of R6k, these offer amazing value.
