The Buxumbox Tourmalet is a strong aluminium bike case for carrying your bike safely when you fly, and it’s very easy to pack too. The price and possibly the weight are hurdles.
Pros: Strong, durable, easy to pack
Cons: A little heavier and pricier than most rivals
Several changes have been made since we first reviewed the Buxumbox Tourmalet three years ago, the most significant being that you can now get it with fixing points for bikes with thru-axles as well as open-ended dropouts and that assembly has now been moved to the UK – Okehampton in Devon, to be more precise. I’ll tell you about other changes later on.
As an experienced cyclist who travels regularly, ensuring my bike is properly protected in transit is of paramount importance to me. Buxum’s box is probably the best thought-out and most comprehensively designed and engineered I’ve seen. I have no doubts that it will be the last bike box I’ll need to buy. – 10 x British Time Trial Champion
