BikeFlights debuts new line of shipping boxes at Sea Otter

Published April 8, 2022

MONTEREY, Calif. (BRAIN) — Bike shipping service and box supplier BikeFlights announced its new line of shipping boxes at the Sea Otter Classic on Thursday.

BikeFlights now offers four bike shipping boxes to handle kids, road, gravel, and mountain or e-bikes. It also has a box for road, gravel, and aero bikes with integrated bars and stems.

The company said the boxes are easier to handle after adding more four-ply handholds and improved their placement. More robust pinch clips hold the boxes together without packaging tape and are also biodegradable. A patent-pending splined dropout spacer fits nine fork and frame dropout sizes to reduce the amount of plastic used in the essential packing materials kit that comes with each box.

The boxes are made in the U.S. They are designed for at least two shipments and can be recycled at the end of their life.

"We wanted to make our best-selling BikeFlights bike shipping boxes even better," said William Alcorn, BikeFlights president. "They're now more durable, easy-to-pack and come in four sizes to fit more bikes."

BikeFlights said it listened to feedback from users.

"We talked to individual customers, bike shops, event organizers and carrier drivers to learn what would work better for them," Alcorn said. "We listened to them, then incorporated their feedback to improve overall shipping performance."

All four box sizes are available effective immediately in BikeFlights online store. MSRPs are $99.95 (small), $109.95 (medium), $119.95 (large) and $129.95 (extra large). Direct-to-consumer shipping within the contiguous U.S. is included in the pricing. Boxes typically deliver within 1-3 business days, depending on customer location.

Wholesale pricing is available, and bulk box pricing will be available soon. Contact with inquiries.
