Bike Pod Hire

It’s important to take the right precautions to protect your pride and joy when travelling and to make things simple, we offer a hard case bike box rental service. Pop in store or give us a call to leave a deposit, and then we’ll have the ‘pod’ ready and waiting when you come to collect it. The Polaris Bike Pod is designed to keep your bike safe when travelling – perfect for cyclists going abroad to events; bike protection for flying to a triathlon, the Etape or a MTB holiday.

Will my bike fit?

A Look XL carbon road frame with an integrated seat post fits fine inside the Bike Pod Pro. Polaris have also tested the Pod with a 61cm steel traditional road bike, which fitted in easily.

Mountain bikes can be slightly longer than road bikes due to increased frame clearances and a longer wheelbase. However Polaris have tested the Pod Pro with a large 140mm travel full suspension MTB (Specialized Pitch) and it fitted in. If your frame has long travel forks you may need to remove them.
