The Scicon Travel Plus Racing bag is more designed to protect your bike from light knocks, dust and moisture when travelling by car than it is for throwing in with the suitcases at an airport.
All that was required to fit a bike in was removal of the wheels – you just turn the bar, pop the wheels in the sleeves and zip it up. For the price you do get some high-quality fabrics with a small amount of foam padding, but that’s largely it.
If you don’t particularly want oil and grime dirtying the back of your car then it might be worth considering this as an option, but if you’re looking to really protect your bike from the potential damage of international travel, look elsewhere.
