Scicon’s Aerocomfort 3.0 upgrades the prior model bike travel case to make it more robust, but also lighter. And it’s still one of the only cases that’ll fit your road, triathlon or mountain bike in without having to remove the seat or handlebars. We got a sneak peek back around Thanksgiving, but now have more details with its official release.
On the bottom are new wheels that are stronger so they won’t get busted off by careless baggage handlers. Tougher plastic protective panels near the derailleur work with internal brush guards and a rigid frame to keep anything from getting smashed… or needing to be removed. Which is the whole point of this case. You should just be able to pull the wheels, mount the bike by its dropouts, and hit the airport.
Straps keep everything organized and held in place. Wheels get their own side pockets with internal zipper openings.
The Frame Guard’s axle mounts become easier to adjust in height and length, and they’ve added 12mm thru axle compatibility for disc brake road and TT/Tri bikes via adapters, addressing feedback we at Bikerumor gave them on the previous version.
The Aerocomfort 3.0 Triathlon model is shaped to accommodate aero bar extensions.
Even the mountain bike version keeps the handlebar on, but you do have to twist it. It’s now the official bike bag of the Cape Epic. Adapters for 12mm rear/15mm front with or without boost spacing for MTB. $899
The 3.0 version is 1kg lighter (average across these three models) than the 2.0. The design is good for pros and triathletes who aren’t necessarily capable mechanics but travel often. Available now, retail pricing is $899.
Updated since we gave some away in our last Reader’s Survey, the Scicon rain bag’s materials are improved and it’s available online worldwide now for $139. Add $10 and they’ll customize it with your name and flag of choice, even if it’s the Sufferlandria flag, a pirate flag or something you make up. They even have US state flags.
