Biknd Helium Bike Case Is An Expensive Way To Safely Transport An Expensive Bike

Biknd Helium Bike Case (Images courtesy Biknd)
By Andrew Liszewski

You might think $600 is a lot to spend on a case designed to protect and transport only a single bike, but keep in mind that we’ve reported on professional racing bikes that can cost as much as $42,000, so spending $600 to protect one doesn’t actually seem so crazy.

The Helium bike case’s unique design allows it to be opened 360° making packing your bike’s frame (it’s compatible with road bikes up to 64cm size or a full-suspension freeride mountain bike), 2 sets of wheels and other accessories like a helmet, shoes, and pump particularly painless, and when empty it can be collapsed small enough to stow in the trunk of a car. But the most unique feature is a set of inflatable partitions positioned on either side of the frame which not only increases the protection of the various bike components packed inside, but the increased rigidity makes the whole thing easier to transport.

    plus if you fill the inflatable parts with actual helium then it'll be lighter to carry

    This is a great idea, even if it DOES cost $600. It seems like a small investment for true biking enthusiasts, especially if they plan on traveling often.

    If someone spent that much on a bike, I highly doubt they will care about another $600 to properly store their investment.
