Ultimate travel protection for your bike
Skip to view product specifications

Established in 1983, B&W have built a strong reputation as a specialist case manufacturer for a number of applications, including bicycle boxes and bags. Travelling with your bike can sometimes be a problem with baggage handlers not realising the fragility and sometimes expense of your beloved bike.

B&W’s Touring bike box is manufactured from ABS plastic with thick foam padding on the inside to absorb shocks and prevent damage when in transit.

Two padded wheel bags and a foam protection block for the chainset are also provided which proved to be excellent at stopping any internal damage. On first inspection the box appears small (at just 1180mm long x 850mm high x 275mm wide), which means it fits nicely into most saloon or hatchback vehicles. Removing the handlebars, seatpost and rear derailleur, a 56cm road bike went straight in with no problems on fit.

Double straps hold the frame in place inside the box whilst wheels sit nicely on top keeping everything together. Overall design and manufacturing quality is superb, with rollers at each corner, two handles and four integrated locks. It’s also nice to see that an external strap has been added from the original design to provide a bike case that really does give you the confidence to travel without the worry of damaging your bike.
