An ultra-compact bicycle travel case designed for conventional road bikes as well as coupled-frame-type travel bikes. Dips under the airline checked baggage dimension limits. Unlike any other fabric ‘softshell’ case on the market, hard plastic armor panels backed by energy-absorbing foam surround the bike 360 degrees.
Side-loading ‘bathtub’ design for easy packing. Padded backpack straps allow you transport the case comfortably and easily, and stow when you’re ready to check in at the airport. Three internal pockets - a zippered, padded fork pocket, a zippered tools and parts pocket, and an elastic pocket. Stores flat.
Handling & Shipping Times
Orders currently ship in 1-2 business days. Our standard service is UPS Ground, which takes 2-5 business days depending on how far one is from our headquarters in San Diego. If you plan to travel with the case in less than two weeks, it's best to email us to confirm shipping speed beforehand.
Expedited shipping service is available for $75. We use UPS Next Day Air. We can often ship expedited orders same-day, but depending on the time the order is placed, it might not go out until the next day. If you need your case ASAP, it's best to place the order immediately and email us right away outlining your time constraints. We will do our best to give you the fastest possible service. If we are unable to fulfill your order within the necessary time constraints, we can refund you.
Standard international shipping is via USPS Priority International. Typical delivery times are 7-14 days; however, USPS estimates are not guaranteed. It is also impossible to estimate the time required for customs processing in the destination country, or for transfer to the local courier. Expedited service is also available for those with specific delivery requirements.

Complete Packing Instructions
There are as many ways to pack an Airport Ninja as there are Airport Ninjas. What works well for one user and their bike may not be the ideal solution for another user with a different bike. It's important to practice packing soon after receiving your Airport Ninja so that we have plenty of time to help you should you need assistance.
We recommend packing the frame in one of the following three orientations in order to provide the best fit for your bike while preventing contact between the chain rings and the outer layers of fabric. Notice the head tube and rear dropout always go in the less-rounded corners.
Additional Steps for Bikes with a Fork-Routed Front Brake Cable/Hose
Protect Your Investment
The only fabric 'softshell' bicycle case with 360º hard plastic armor and energy-absorbing foam. A padded fork pocket and dividers separate components during travel.
Dodge The Measuring Tape
Dips under the airline limits for conventional bikes as well as coupling 'S&S' type travel bikes. And unlike other S&S cases, there's no need to completely deflate tires.
Take Your Bike Anywhere
Small and lightweight, the Sub62 travels easily in any taxi, ride share, rental car, bus or train. Stores flat so you can make the most of a small hotel room or apartment.
Fit & Sizing
The Sub62 is designed to fit conventional road bikes, as well as coupled or ’S&S’-type travel bikes. In testing we have found the case to fit most modern road bikes up to 54cm. However, because the case is the absolute minimum size that it can be to fit a bike with 700c wheels, factors specific to each bike such as cable length and handlebar setup can have a significant impact on fit. Feel free to email us with specific questions regarding fit.
