BikeFlights launches new line of shipping boxes at Sea Otter

MONTEREY, Calif. (BRAIN) — Bicycle 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, mountain or electric 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 handles and improving their placement. Stronger pinch clips hold boxes together without packing tape and are also biodegradable. A patent-pending splined dropout spacer accommodates nine fork and frame dropout sizes to reduce the amount of plastic used in the essential packaging materials kit that comes with every box.

The boxes are made in the USA. 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 bicycle shipping boxes even better,” said William Alcorn, President of BikeFlights. “They are now more durable, easy to store, and come in four sizes to fit more bikes.”

BikeFlights said it listened to user feedback.

“We spoke to individual customers, bike shops, event organizers and carrier drivers to find out what would work best for them,” Alcorn said. “We listened to them and then incorporated their feedback to improve overall shipping performance.”

All four box sizes are available now in the BikeFlights webshop. MSRPs are $99.95 (small), $109.95 (medium), $119.95 (large), and $129.95 (extra large). Direct-to-consumer shipping within the contiguous United States is included in the price. Boxes are typically delivered within 1-3 business days, depending on customer location.

Wholesale pricing is available and bulk box pricing will be available soon. Contact [email protected] for any request.
