5 mil thick for protection, lightweight to pack more gear, fits all our 16" & 20" wheel bikes, soft case collapses when not in use

The ultimate suitcase for folding bikes ( sold out )

We introduced the first version of this suitcase about ten years ago. It has been refined, and has become the leader in the folding bicycle travel market.

It's HUGE and Light!!!

First off it is big...we mean huge and can fit all Downtube folding bikes with no disassembly ( just fold and go ). It's also a soft case which means it's lighter than any hard sided suitcase. After you put your bike in the case you will be well under the 50lb airline weight limit, so you can load up other things in the case with your bike ( please make sure they are soft ).

Easy to use

It has straps inside to hold the bikes in place and a solid plastic base. Humongous wheels to roll around the airport, and handles in front and top to easily carry. It also has two extra external straps in addition to a super thick zipper to keep your bike secure.

It's Big and Small

This is the biggest bicycle suitcase you will find on the market, however it is made to collapse so it makes nearly no space when not in use. After you get off the plane it collapses and can be held on the back of a bicycle rack ( no Taxi needed ). Also includes an internal zippered pocket for tools and a mini pump.

Heavy Duty

This thing is tough, it's made of super tick 5 mil upper and a solid plastic base from below. Instead of absorbing impact it bends and stretches. We have used these suitcases almost for 10 years...they last.


These are the only suitcases that allow you to fly without disassembling your 20" wheel bike. It is about 33"x21"x12" ( it's a soft shape-shifter ) the suitcase is slightly oversized ( bigger than 62" for most airlines ), however that's why we made it soft. By pushing in the corners it looks small and you should get through checking in without any fees. We have flown over 100 times with these suitcases and never incurred an oversize charge. However please understand there is risk. We believe these are the best folding bike suitcases. All others require disassembly and reassembly.

    My model 9 fit it after taking it to a bike shop. A detailed video of slowly placing the bike to fit in would be helpful.

    Sturdy Case

    I purchased the folding bike soft suitcase and really like it. The trip I was planning to use it was delayed until next month. But I really like the sturdy construction and think it will be so much better than the box I've been using when flying with my folding bike. Can't wait to try it out!

    Great suitcase

    Only two trips so far; but the bag worked perfectly. My Dahon (don't judge me ;>) was unscathed despite the airlines best efforts to destroy it.
