Borson Bike Travel Bag
The Borson Bike Travel Bag from Elite is an easy and safe way to transport your bike to a race or for vacation. Using an ultra-resistant nylon fabric outer, your bike will be protected while it's in your hands or when it's out of your sight. The Borson is compatible with drop bar and mountain bikes and will accommodate dropouts using quick release skewers or thru-axles up to 20mm. Built to be light and easy to maneuver, the Borson provides handles for lifting and its two rear wheels allow it to be used as a trolley as you scoot it around busy airports with ease.
The Borson's hinge construction allows you to unfold it completely for easy bicycle insertion. Once inside, internal padding protects the bike from any shock during transportation. What makes this bag so easy to use is the minimal amount of bicycle disassembly, only requiring you to remove the pedals and wheels. You can keep the handlebar on as it is, as long as it's less than 46cm wide, as well as the seatpost and saddle so long as your saddle height is under 85cm. The hoops store inside two included wheel carrying bags, further protecting them and your frame. Also inside are 3 large pockets for tool and accessory storage while outside, a big external pocket makes it easy to access essentials.
We're obviously big fans of the Borson, but you don't have to just take our word for it. Professional teams like Team Movistar, Team Dimension Data, Team Sunweb, Bianchi-Countervail, Team Fortuneo-Samsic, and Israel Cycling Academy trust the Borson on their many international trips across the globe while campaigning top races.

Light, protective, easy to travel with
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- True to size
So my first concern with travel bags or boxes is safety of my bike. The padding did a great job protecting the frame and handlebars. The rail system that the bike attaches to is very firm, holds it in place. Even with a large 60cm frame road bike I did not have to remove the handlebars or the rear derailleur. There is room in the bottom for bike bag, helmet, and or shoes, but no good way to secure them unless you have a way to affix to your frame. The wheels in their own own padded bags provide side protection. Weighed in at 49 lbs, but size was too big for Southwest, so it was an extra $75 each way of my flight. 2 flights so far, and everything was perfect. Aside from removing the wheels, the only other thing I had to do was lower the seat. High marks for an easy to maneuver and light weight solution! TSA did undo the inner strap, put the wheel bag back in upside down with the strap loose, but The bike still arrived safely.

Do you sell replacement wheels? One of the swivel wheels on the front snapped off.
