The Airport Ninja Bike Travel Case
The original fee-avoiding bike travel case
We developed the Airport Ninja when we realized that bike fees were standing between us and living our dream of traveling and racing. Eleven years and over 100,000 customer flights later, thousands of cyclists worldwide have learned the secret to traveling fee- and hassle-free with their bikes. The world’s most compact and discreet bike travel case is stealthy at check-in, while making every aspect of traveling with a bike less costly and more convenient; from finding a suitable rental car or navigating public transit to storing the case away when you’re back at home. Say goodbye to bike fees. Become an Airport Ninja.
Pack your bike in as little as 15 minutes
You don’t need to be a mechanic to use the Airport Ninja - packing requires only basic tools, and only one additional step of disassembly as compared to traditional full-size bike cases. Packing takes as little as 15 minutes and can save you up to $250 each way on bike fees.
Available in two sizes to fit almost all road, gravel, and full-suspension 29ers
Two sizes will fit everything from small road bikes to large full-suspension 29er MTBs. At just 10.8 pounds (4.9kg), this means you can pack the case with nearly 40 pounds (18kg) including the bike and extra equipment without exceeding the typical weight limit. It also satisfies all airline requirements regarding the removal of handlebars and pedals.
one-third the size and weight of the competition - and it still has hard plastic sides
The Airport Ninja is by far the easiest bicycle travel case to transport. Its compact size - ⅓ the size and weight of hard cases - make it easy to maneuver around the airport or at your destination, and it fits easily in any size rental car or taxi. The case expands in width so there’s plenty of room for extra equipment or souvenirs, and can compress down to 2” for convenient storage when not in use.
As cyclists who traveled every weekend and depended on our bikes for a living, we wanted a travel case that was easy to pack and transport, but did not compromise on protection. That’s why the Airport Ninja is the only fabric ‘soft’ travel case that incorporate hard plastic side panels along with thick energy-absorbing foam padding. The zipper closure system is simple to operate and will allow TSA to close everything properly after manual inspections.

The Airport Ninja bike travel case weighs just 12 pounds - giving you 38 pounds of packable weight. Making it easy to get a road, gravel, or even an enduro bike under the 50 pound weight limit on most airlines.
The Airport Ninja comes in two sizes. The medium which will fit all road bikes up to a 56cm, and the large which will fit most gravel bikes and large 29ers.
Most bike travel cases are large enough and shaped in such a way that they’re instantly recognisable as holding a bicycle inside, which often results in a hefty fee for many airlines. Even if there aren’t any additional charges, the oversized format relegates you to dedicated queues at the airport, and possibly a maxi-taxi when you land to take you where you need to go. But for those that want cheaper and simpler travel (at the cost of disassembly time), there are solutions.
Fortunately, we have the Oru Airport Ninja to help alleviate some of the stresses associated with bike transport on aircraft. This is for two reasons, first the quality of protection offered by the Airport Ninja is extremely high for a soft sided case. There is ample padding and the ability to create enough dead space in the compartments that your bike won’t have to take the brunt of any major impacts. Second, the Oru Airport Ninja is well within most airlines 62 linear inch requirement for avoiding an oversize baggage charge, and if you apply the appropriate ninja stealth mindset to the process you can ably avoid those charges time and again.
