The travel case makes packing simple – just the wheels, seat post and one pedal need be moved, with the handlebars loosened and turned. There’s wheel compartments and a storage bag for pedals and saddle/seatpost.
A ‘Suspended Frame System’ (SFS) keeps the bike in place, and the Italian engineered case comes in at 11kg, so shouldn’t eat up too much of your luggage limit.
To eradicate any security concerns, you get reinforced Travel Sentry approved TSA key locks, and a twin wheel system features eight precision ball bearing wheels, to make getting round the airport easier.
