Triathlons Spur Sales of Bike Travel Cases

Published June 12, 2008

LAGUNA HILLS, CA (BRAIN)—As the popularity of triathlons grows in the United States so do sales of bike travel cases that allow athletes to fly to faraway races, according to a story in Thursday’s New York Times.

Bill Langford, the president of Tri All 3 Sports, a manufacturer in San Clemente, California, said sales grew 20 percent in the first quarter of this year compared with the same period last year.

Hard cases like Tri All 3’s are meant to withstand airline baggage handlers as well as shipment by ground, but weight more than soft cases, which generally can’t be shipped.
