Taking your bike on hols this year? Thinking of bagging a few cols or railing some sinuous Alpine singletrack?
Collecting your luggage to find your new holiday togs coated in a greasy layer of factor 50 is one thing, but boisterous baggage handling battering your carbon race hoops into a useful new rugby ball shape is quite another.
Put simply – your choice of bike box can quite literally make or break your cycling holiday.
Bikewear stalwarts Polaris have a range of cycle luggage, and we’re stocking some of the choicest boxes from their catalogue.
The Bike Pod Pro (£525) is their top-of-the-range, fully rigid model. Wheels lock in place with tie wraps and internal foam padding ensures your pride and joy stays super comfy for the duration of its flight.
The Eva Pod Plus’ (£325) semi-rigid frame will take all wheel sizes, including 29ers, as well as time trial, extended seat post and triathlon bikes.
We also have the standard Eva Bike Pod (£274.99) – possibly the best balance of weight vs protection for smaller steeds like road bikes.
The Bike Pod Pro – which garnered a 4-star review from Bike Radar – is available to hire from Drover Cycles at £50/ week or £80/two weeks. For more Bike Pod Pro hire centres visit http://www.pod-it.co.uk/
