Packing your bike for the long-haul just got simplified and safer thanks to the intuitive engineering of JETPACK. Jetpack uses outstanding materials to assure safety for your expensive kit. It’s the product of engineers and designers with over 25 years working in the world of bicycles.
Biknd is a privately owned company, started in 2009, in Quebec, Canada. They began with the Helium Travel bike case and have received multiple international patents for that unique case. Even though they’re a young company, they’ve won many design awards from various media outlets. For the 2010 season, the Biknd Helium Travel Bike Case was chosen by the Garmin-Transition Pro Cycling Team as their official traveling case.
Traveling with an expensive bike is always stress inducing. Biknd tries to alleviate some of that stress by building a super protective travel case. With rugged rolling wheels and some really nice features built into the case to help with protection, the Jetpack manages to stay lightweight and complies with luggage weight restrictions on multiple airlines.
