The Airport Ninja Bike Travel Case

$499.00 $399.00

BACKED BY OUR LIFETIME GUARANTEE

We developed the Airport Ninja when we realized that bike fees were standing between us and living our dream of traveling and racing. Seven years and over 50,000 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.

The Airport Ninja was born out of necessity: it was either find a way to avoid paying bike fees, or don’t go to the final and most important race of the season. We built a prototype and avoided fees on our very first flight. Soon our friends and other racers were asking for cases of their own, and we realized we were on to something. 

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. 

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. 

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 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.

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


 

In order to accommodate a wide variety of bikes, we have created two sizes of Airport Ninja:
Medium - fits road and CX bikes up to ~58cm
Large - fits 60-63cm road bikes and up to a large 29er or 650B mountain bike

Certain geometries might require sizing up, such as 'comfort' or 'touring' geometries which have relatively long head tubes and/or chain stays. Bikes with 'integrated' cockpit (cable routing through stem and head tube) may not be compatible. Enter your bike information during checkout to help us verify compatibility. 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 info@orucase.com
