BikeFlights – Bike Box | Starting at $119.95
The BikeFlights Bike Box is a collapsible, reusable, cardboard-based bike box that gives you the same confidence of high-end shipping cases, while keeping your costs lower. The Bike Box has been engineered to withstand multiple drops of 18 and 36 inches, a horizontal compression force up to 229 pounds, a vertical compression force up to 1,732 pounds and sustained vibration while loaded up to 300 pounds. It ships to riders (US only) within 2 business days and stows back in its compact form for storage between uses.
BikeFlights.com’s Bike Box Medium is sturdy optimally sized to get you the best shipping rates. Its innovative, patented design reflects BikeFlights.com’s more than a decade of experience in shipping bikes of all types. It is ideally suited for shipping most gravel and road bikes, smaller mountain bikes and kids’ bikes.
Use of the box, which comes with basic packing materials, requires some bike disassembly. Depending on the size and design of your bike, you can expect to have to remove your pedals, both wheels and your stem and bars plus drop your seat or remove your seat and seatpost. For the best possible protection, we also suggest wrapping your bike’s tubes with foam padding or cardboard.
Designed and rigorously tested to the ISTA 6A standard, the Bike Box offers confidence-inspiring levels of protection for your bike during shipping. It has been engineered to withstand multiple drops of 18 inches and 36 inches, a horizontal compression force up to 229 pounds, a vertical compression force up to 1,732 pounds and sustained vibration while loaded to up to 300 pounds.
The Bike Box ships to you compactly so you can store it under a bed or in the corner of a closet – just assemble it whenever you’re ready to use it. To minimize environmental impact, the box has been designed for multiple uses, and you can pack it back down to its original size for efficient storage between uses. Every piece of the box’s package becomes part of the bike box when built, so there is no packaging waste, and the entire box is recyclable once you’re finished with it.

SafeSleeve Phone Cases
With the renewed focus on health, don’t forget that many studies have shown that our omnipresent smartphones pose risks of their own in the form of tumors and genetic damage caused by the radiation emitted by our favorite gadgets. Smartphone owners can shield themselves from these dangers with SafeSleeve Anti-Radiation phone cases. The 5-in-1 cases feature:
● An RFID-blocking wallet to keep your personal information safe from hackers;
● A certified military-grade protective case (Mil-Std 810G) to guard against accidental drops and falls;
● A built-in adjustable stand for hands-free viewing and video conferencing;
● An FCC-accredited, lab-tested radiation shield that blocks over 99% of potentially dangerous RF and 92% of ELF electromagnetic radiation;
● A detachable, magnetic backing lets you take advantage of the radiation protection but also provides an inner case for situations when your phone won’t be close to your body and you don’t need the radiation protection.
● And, of course, the cases look great while providing all of these safeguards, made with durable, non-slip outer vegan leather and soft, microfiber liners on the inside. $49 to $69

fizik Antares Versus Evo Adaptive 00 is now Available in Stylish Black
fizik’s cutting edge performance saddle with revolutionary 3D printed padding is now available to complement a larger range of pallets.
As technology evolves and the sport of cycling advances, strong and lightweight components never seem to go out of style. Earlier this year, fizik signaled a major advance in saddle manufacturing with the launch of their Adaptive series of 3D-printed saddles. Their latest release, the Antares Versus Evo Adaptive 00 Black, continues this new tradition in a color that’s simply classic.
Beyond its bold new look, fizik’s original Adaptive saddle, the Antares Versus Evo 00 Adaptive, introduced cyclists to the advantages of zonal cushioning made possible through the use of Carbon® Digital Light Synthesis™, a 3D printing technique where liquid resins are programmed to create structures offering varying densities. This allowed fizik designers to create padding with specific functional zones to precisely optimize comfort and performance.
In this newest edition, Antares Versus Evo Adaptive 00 Black, fizik combined their high-module, full-carbon 00 shell and Mobius closed-loop rail system for a cutting-edge strength-to-weight ratio built for performance cyclists.
● Price – $399.99, £369.99, €390.
● The Antares Versus Evo Adaptive 00 Black is available via fizik dealers worldwide or at fizik.com.
