Product Description

Baggage handlers can be brutally hard on bags and cargo, which is why the idea of entrusting your bike to them on a transcontinental flight makes you break out in a rash. But when you pack your baby in the BIKND Helium Air-Cushioned Bike Case, you can travel with complete peace of mind. Developed with the input of pro cyclists, whose lives involve frequent air travel with bikes, the Helium utilizes inflatable padding to ensure your bike emerges unscathed from its experience with the gorillas down on the tarmac.

I've been using the Biknd for about 18 months now, and I travel with my Pinarello pretty regularly. So far (touch wood) the bike has always arrived in one piece which I guess is the best advertisement for it.

One of the airbags inside has burst: there seems to be no way of buying new ones. So I've been putting the wheels at that side to shelter the bike from any impacts.

The major problem with it is a design flaw relating to the straps at the top. Take a look at the picture and you will see that there are two black straps, which are sewn into the side of the case where the black fabric meets the grey fabric. It's the only place where you can conveniently pick up the case, so even the most careful baggage handlers will pick up the case by its straps. The result: the weight of the bag pulls the fabric apart at its seam, so the side of the case is now falling apart. I made it (just) to New York on this trip by strapping some belts around it to keep it together, but I'm pretty sure that the case won't make it back.

$600 is right at the top of the market, and it's a lot of money to spend on something which falls apart.

Bought this a year ago and have traveled with it six times, including two international trips with no damage to the bike or gear. This bag is lighter and more maneuverable than anything out there. I can easily get my road bike, 1 set of wheels and all my gear in and not go over 50 lbs.

Here are a couple of things I learned to make it work best:

1. Be careful with the air bags: both of mine punctured after the first two trips. My guess is that the valve stems did it. The holes were easy to fix with some electric tape. Now when I pack I make sure that nothing sharp is going to touch the bags. Make sure the valve stems are tucked underneath the black flap in the middle or wrap something around them.

2. Air pressure: I only pack one set of wheels and found that the bags work best when they're pumped to 100. You will also find that the pressure may be different when you pick up your bag from baggage claim. (I live at 6000 feet so this happens to me all the time when I go to sea level and back)

3. Pack the wheels in the front or back. Don't alternate: The bag seems to pack and roll best when you put both wheels in the front. Alternating one in front and one in back makes it a little harder to balance and roll around.

4. Wrap the rear derailleur in a rag: this will protect it and keep chain goo from getting all over the inside of the bag and your bike!

I love this bag and am glad I spent the money for it compared to the 'plastic box' alternatives.

I just came back from a competition and traveling with thise case is worlds apart from my previous Serfas hard-shell case. The upright possition of the bike makes it much easier to assemble. It's so light that airlines such as AA should do away with the bike case fee. This bike case weights much less than a large suitcase and the dimensions are only slightly larger.

This case is outstanding! It fits all bikes, including my large PIVOT Mach 429 and my BH GC Aero Triathlon bike. It's super easy to pack up...I can do it in about 15 minutes. The wheels work great and it is light so it is very easy to travel with. I have now traveled with it about 6 times and have had zero damage to my bikes.
