VeloVault2 Bike Box review

We put this sturdy British made box to the test through Gatwick and Alicante airports

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The VeloVault2 combines a robust plastic structure with quality fixings and an improved strut, all of which culminate in almost complete peace of mind when placing a bike in the hold. Reassurance comes at a price, in this case increased weight and a cumbersome package when lifting up and down stairs. However, once on a flat surface the wheels roll well and we were able to stay below airline weight limits despite some serious additional packing.

When travelling with a bike, my default choice is a soft bike travel case - they're not as sturdy, but my justification has always been ease of negotiating the airport (and the 20 steps from the pavement to my front door) plus the lower weight which allows for greater lycra stuffing within baggage allowances.
