Bike Case - Eva Pod Lite

Velogear's EVA Pod Lite is the lightest solid bicycle case on the market.

The material used is the same strength as our normal EVA Pod, but just over 2 kgs has been trimmed by replacing the 2 sets of steel castors with 1 set of plastic wheels, and using a lighter, but as strong, EVA compound.

Ethylene Vinyl Acetate (EVA) has high impact strength, good tear and abrasion resistance but its main advantage is its lightness.

Velogear EVA Lite bike cases weigh approximately 7 kg and when packed with a race bike weighs well under 20kg! Please note the weight for this product says 40kg - this is only for shipping cost purposes.

The bike pod is moulded to fit most road, touring and mtb bikes. Its clam shell design enables it to be fully opened for ease of packing.

Features:

  • Roller wheels on rear of bike case
  • Pull handle
  • Closed with industrial strength zips and quick release buckles
  • Supplied with 1 sheet of packing foam
  • Has 3 straps inside to help secure the frame
  • Size: 1200mm x 907mm x 280mm approx.
  • Weight: Approx. 8 kg
  • Could be locked by padlocking the 2 zip tabs (lock not supplied)
  • Skewers not supplied
  • Will store upto size 60 road bikes (without integrated seatpost)
  • Will store most MTB bikes except those with long travel forks, ie downhill
 
VIP SHIPPING NOTES
 
1. Pick Up Saves $25
 
2. Shipping is Free ONLY to Melbourne, Adelaide and Sydney.
 
Note: You MUST select the correct Shipping Zone for your order to be processed promptly.


Note:
The EVA Pod is a "hard" bike case but is not as knockproof as our ABS Bike Case - there is a tradeoff between lightness and destructibilty. If your first requirement is weight - then go EVA - it is very light & provides excellent protection for the bike. If weight is not an issue then the ABS material is "rock hard" and very very knockproof - the material is as used in hard case suitcases.

Basic Packing Method:

  • Remove wheels
  • Remove pedals
  • Loosen and turn handlebar sideways
  • Depending on bike size you may need to lower seatpost and/or remove seat
  • Place the bike into the case
  • Wrap wheels in clothing, foam or place in wheel bags. Generally one wheel willl fit under the frame and one above. Due to the wide variety of bike frame types and sizes there is no “one correct place” to put the wheels, you will need to do your own trial and error.


High Protection Method:

In addition to above you can do all or some of the below:

  • Wrap the frame tube with pipe lagging or similar to prevent scratching
  • Wrap front cogset and chain
  • Remove and wrap rear derailleur
  • Place a divider rod in the rear axle
  • Remove and wrap seatpost and seat
  • Use single wheel bags for each wheel
  • Use sheets of foam or clothing for extra padding - this is essentail for air travel
