How do you haul your bike on a long distance trek (short of riding it)? There are a few ways to tote your pedal-powered friend along with you when traveling by air, sea, or land. Buy a folding bike, buy an S&S system, buy a hard case, or buy the new Helium bike case from Biknd.
THE HELIUM BIKE CASE was created for globetrotters who travel with their bicycles on airplanes, trains or buses. Traveling with a bicycle has never been this simple: the Helium is light and easy to carry and its revolutionary inflatable padding offers unrivaled protection. Thanks to its minimal dimensions, it fits easily in the trunk of even the smallest cars (width of100 cm). The Helium bike case has special compartments for an extra wheelset and also for stowing you helmet, shoes and other essentials (pump, spare tubes, etc.) The Helium case allows you to pack your bike with only minor disassembly and without changing the adjustment of its components.
The biggest innovation inside the Helium is its network of inflatable partitions, strategically positioned on either side of the frame. They offer more stability and protection, at a lower weight, than other systems. The partitions are held in place by Velcro straps, making cleaning and maintenance a breeze.
If your traveling by air or sea the case can also double as a life raft in case of water landing or sinking ships...for more info visit Biknd
