Compact & Protected
The Transfer Case has rigid polycarbonate plastic panels and thick foam padding throughout. The included padded Frame Wrap and Chainstay Guard adds yet another layer of protection. These wraps keep your bike scratch-free and completely eliminate having to scavenge pieces of foam and tape just to protect your bike. Just pack it and go!
Save on travel fees
Packing your bike in its smallest possible footprint means the overall dimensions of the Transfer Case are just slightly larger than a regular luggage. Some airline counter agents will let it through as a normal check-in luggage and allow you to avoid airline fees that bigger bike cases normally get charged with. While we do not guarantee avoiding airline fees, the Transfer Case has a great track record at avoiding or reducing any fees.
By being as compact as possible, rolling the Transfer Case through narrow streets is a breeze with its external wheels or even on your back with its integrated shoulder straps. At under 6KG for the Transfer Case by itself, it's the lightest and most compact, yet still highly protective bike cases out there. Once you’re at your hotel or place of stay, it's easy to carry upstairs using its rugged handles.
Fits any vehicle
The Transfer Case fits nicely into a small car’s trunk. Or even fit multiple Transfer Cases in the same vehicle! No more negotiating with taxi drivers unwilling to deal with a bigger case or trying to find a larger car just for your bike.
Folds for storage and mobility
The Transfer Case's rigid side panels can be re-positioned to allow it to be folded for storage and not take up a lot of room at home. It's also a great way to transport the Case on your back with the shoulder straps, if you want to build your bike at the airport and ride to your destination!
All the components of your bike have a compartment or strap inside the Transfer Case to keep them protected and organized. From a dedicated rear derailleur pouch, a stretchy sleeve for the fork and pockets for the pedals, brake rotors and even tools—The Transfer Case was designed with all aspects of packing and travel in mind!

HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR TRANSFER CASE SIZE
|1||Measure the frame's headtube length (including headset cups or attachments that cannot be easily taken off.)|
|2||Measure its diagonal length between the most forward point, at the center of the headtube, to the furthest point of the frame (usually the derailleur hanger on geared bikes.)|
|3||Use the chart below to determine size.|
|Headtube length (cm)||Diagonal length (cm)||Headtube length (cm)||Diagonal length (cm)|
135L Transfer Case: A frame with a 18cm headtube and diagonal length measured 98.3cm or less.
150L Transfer Case: A Specialized Roubaix size 61, by our measurements, has a headtube length of 20.5cm and a diagonal length of 100.2cm.
In general, most travelers will prefer the smaller Transfer Case (135L) if their frame size allows for it. If your frame's diagonal dimension exceeds the limit of fitting the 135L Transfer Case by only a few millimeters, keep in mind that the Case’s side panels have thick foam padding that will take up a bit of extra material on any side. Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions on Case fitting.INTEGRATED/INTERNAL CABLES
As long as the frame's cable housing and brake hoses enable movement of the handlebar when the stem is removed, it will fit inside the Transfer Case. Frames with fully integrated or internal cables will not be compatible inside the Transfer Case.INTEGRATED SEAT POSTS
The Transfer Case was not designed for frames that have a seat post integrated into the frame or those with an extended seat tube (and use a seat mast topper to attach the saddle). However, there are some frames with this style of seat post that are short enough and allow it to fit in the Transfer Case. Please email us with your frame information and dimensions and we can see if it will fit!
