Designed and rigorously tested to the Amazon ISTA 6A standard, the Bike Box offers confidence-inspiring levels of protection for your bike during shipping. It has been engineered to withstand multiple drops of 18 inches and 36 inches, a horizontal compression force up to 229 pounds, a vertical compression force up to 1,732 pounds, and sustained vibration while loaded to up to 300 pounds.

To minimize environmental impact, the box has been designed for multiple uses, and you can pack it back down to its original size for efficient storage between uses. Every piece of the box’s package becomes part of the bike box when built, so there is no packaging waste, and the entire box is recyclable once you’re finished with it.

  1. Back in the day, when I was racing and traveling frequently, I would pack my bikes in cardboard shipping boxes re-purposed from my friendly LBS. Realize, that the major manufactures like Trek, Specialized, Giant etc. ship their bikes all around the world in cardboard boxes. Although special consumer cardboard bike boxes aren’t a new idea, they make a lot of sense – lighter weight, foldable for storage, and re-usable many times. So, if you don’t have a friendly LBS to snitch a shipping box from … then these look like a very good alternative.
