Practical And Safe Bike Transportation Used By The Pros
The Elite Borson is a very practical and safe bag designed to transport your bike by only removing your pedals and both wheels.
The bag is made of extremely resistant fabric, so you can expect it to protect your bicycle in a variety of transit situations and last for a long time.
The Elite Borson is compatible with all types of bikes, both road and MTB, with quick-release or thru-axle up to 20 mm in diameter.
Light and easy to handle, the Elite Borson features handles to easily lift and transport the bad. Thanks to the 2 rear wheels on the bag, you can roll the bike along just like a regular trolley.

My bike has integrated stem/handlebars. This bag is perfect - I don't have to remove the handlebars or move the seat, just remove the pedals. The bike is very secure once packed. An added bonus are the disc rotor protectors and two 2-wheel bags so you can take both sets of wheels. Fits within the size and weight limits and is very easy to move around the airport. A little more expensive than other bags but it's totally worth it!
I have regrets purchasing this bag. It looks nice but does not protect the bike well. One trip and my bike has gotten multiple damages. The whole shell is very soft and without any support, parts like seatstays, seatpost, and toptube can be literally hand grabbed while inside the bag which makes it very possible to result in cracked frame while traveling. Protective wheel discs are made to fit quick release end caps therefore not as claimed to fit any end caps. Axle adapters do not fit properly due to a larger diameter than thru-axle sockets on fork/frame therefore they press against frame paint. On the positive side, the bag is easy to pull and navigate around airports. Not worth the money or frustration.
I have a 56cm road bike with 40cm handlebars , a 120cm stem and SRAM Red shifters. Getting the bike to fit is not even close. I struggled so much to get the bag around the handlebars that it moved my shifters significantly and still no way. Even when I took the handlebar pads off, I couldn't get the case zipped.
Even though the handlebar pads were a giant pain to get on, everything else was thoughtfully put together and could have worked well. The case definitely doesn't provide protection against heavy objects placed on the bag but would probably provide ample protection against getting knocked over and most bumps.
