The Airport Ninja fits almost all sizes of road, cyclocross, track, or XC/Trail mountain bike. There are some larger bikes such as downhill mountain bikes, fat bikes, and extra-extra-large road bikes that will not fit. If you are concerned you may be in one of these categories, please email us for more information.
The Airport Ninja Bike Travel Case
The Airport Ninja Bike Travel Case
Compact and discreet, the Airport Ninja is the world’s stealthiest bike travel case. But that doesn’t mean it skimps on protection. Beneath the 1680-denier ballistics nylon shell is hard plastic armor and multi-density foam to shield your prized possession from the pressure, sharp impacts, and drops it might experience on its way from the check-in counter to baggage claim. Foam wheel dividers and a fork pocket keep these parts of the bike separate and protected during transport. Padded backpack straps help you shoulder the load comfortably. The case expands in width so there’s room to pack extra equipment or souvenirs, and when empty can compress down to 2” for convenient storage.
Say goodbye to bike fees. Become an Airport Ninja.
In order to provide you with the smallest possible case for your bike, we have created three sizes of Airport Ninja:
S/M - fits road and CX bikes up to ~54cm
M/L - fits road and CX bikes up to ~60cm
XL - fits up to a large 29er or 650B mountain bike or ~63cm road bike
Certain geometries might require sizing up, such as 'comfort' or 'touring' geometries which have relatively long head tubes and/or chain stays. Simply enter your bike information during checkout and we will match you with the proper size. If you have specific requests or notes you can use this space at checkout to provide these as well. If you have any questions regarding sizing, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

The Airport Ninja is not a custom bike case. We used to make the cases one at a time and to-order, but as we've grown we've transitioned our manufacturing to maintain inventory so we can better serve our customers' needs.
Yes. We ship all over the world from our headquarters in San Diego, California. Standard-rate international shipments typically take 7-14 days to arrive. However, it is best not to rely on these estimates because customs processing and transfer to the local courier can be unpredictable. Expedited service is available for those who require a faster delivery.
We offer volume-based discounts starting at four cases. This discount is available to individuals, teams, or clubs. Please email us at email@example.com for more details.
Yes! In all stages of the development of the Airport Ninja, we tested the product with our own carbon bikes. It has thicker foam padding than any other soft case on the market, and it is the only one with hard plastic protective side panels. As with any bike, please pay careful attention to our packing instructions to ensure your bike a safe voyage.
While a basic level of mechanical skills is required, by no means do you need to be a bike shop mechanic to use our case. First time use can be intimidating but you will get the hang of it in no time! We’ve found that if you’re uncomfortable disassembling your bike it sometimes helps to take photos of the process as you progress so that you have something to reference if you're in doubt when it comes time for your first reassembly.

The satisfaction of our customers is our highest priority. If you are unsatisfied with your purchase for any reason, contact us immediately and we will do our best to fix the problem.
For all our products, we offer a 30-day money back guarantee. To be eligible for a full refund, the item must be in new and unused condition, and must be return postmarked within 30 days of initial delivery. For bike travel cases, new and unused condition means the case can be test-packed at home, but not traveled with. Also for bike cases, we require that the return be shipped in the original box, or return shipping fees may apply.
After the return is received and inspected, refunds will be issued to the original method of payment within 7-10 days. You will receive an automated email notifying you of the refund. Please note that it can take a few days for the refund to be reflected on your credit card or banking statement.
Please practice packing your bike as soon as possible after you receive the case. In case you have difficulty packing your bike, this will minimize the chances your travel plans will be affected. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to help troubleshoot your problems. In the event that the case is too small for your bike, we can exchange for a larger size, or refund your order, after we receive back the unused case.
"I’ve lost count of how many times the Airport Ninja has accompanied me on both domestic and international trips, and I have yet to be charged or suffer any damage upon arrival... The fact that it lets me bring test bikes helps me keep the review process on track, too."
"In practice, it took us about 10 minutes longer to build our bike compared with our traveling companion, who had a more conventional case. She paid about $400 in fees to fly to France and back with her bike. Our Airport Ninja slipped by unnoticed."
"Over many months of travels, with multiple flights, the Orucase Airport Ninja has shown itself to be durable and reliable transport for my bike, it has become my go-to bag anytime I travel with my bike."
