Customer Emilio has finally been able to travel with his Tourmalet box – a trip much delayed due to the pandemic (remember that?!). This is what he had to say by way of review…
I often travel to Japan, a bike heaven if there is one, and I decided it was time to transport my bike without becoming mad every time I have to pack it. I ordered a Tourmalet, and happily received it … just in time for the pandemics. Now travelling to Japan is again (sort of) possible, so I am glad to say that the box fulfilled my expectations. Packing is easy. The bike is perfectly protected. It looks great, and raises the curiosity and admiration of other travellers. It also rolls beautifully and doubles as a cart for ordinary luggage 😉.
Cement Grey may sound a little bland but it’s been one of our favourite colours this year – wonderfully understated. Customer MC sent in these images of his Ventoux Road in this colour and commented:
“Tried packing the box today. I left the saddle and seat post in, just dropped it a bit, so that I didn’t have to disconnect the di2. Easy once you get the hang of it, it will be much quicker than other boxes where much more disassembly and strapping in is required.”
For those who are interested in specifying this colours, the code for Cement Grey is RAL7033
US customer sent us this image of his customised Ventoux MTB box leaving the aircraft in Colorado – he says:
“My trip to Colorado to participate a MTB race was accompanied by Ventoux MTB box. Couldn’t be happier that no damage inside out the box and my bike was safely transported through one of the roughest baggage handling among all airports.”
UK customer Gail has a Ventoux MTB uniquely set up for her Cannondale Lefty – here’s here feedback after her first trip with the box:
I just wanted to let you know that I have returned from a MTB holiday in The Pyrenees. My bike box had its first outing. I am so delighted with it. The whole process of packing was so simple and secure. I had complete peace of mind whilst it was in transit with Easy Jet 😬. Thank you so much, it was worth every penny. I am now promoting you big time to all my cycling comrades.
