The ultimate answer for frequent flyers is a coupled tandem stowed within a normal looking suitcase. Designed and built exclusively for Santana, our Airliner SafeCase is a tough vault-like case with a protective inner lining, interlocking edges, full-length hinge, locking hasps, telescoping handle and easy glide wheels. Each individual exterior dimension (27" x 33" x 14") falls within universal airline standards, which allows the suitcase-shaped SafeCase to proceed through airport luggage systems without a fuss. This is why owners of this case slip through airports without incurring an extra case charge or the dreaded bicycle transport fee. The SafeCase is not only better for airline travel, it also allows UPS shipment.

An integral feature of Santana’s SafeCase are its multiple die-cut layers of high-density foam. Since our system does away with tedious wrapping and unwrapping of each frametube, and component, the time required to pack or unpack your tandem is cut in half. You don’t even have to remove the pedals from your tandem. The numbered layers remove guesswork to allow secure and efficient packing, even when your travel schedule leaves you rushed or tired. It’s so simple that a young child will understand how each piece of your bike fits within a matching recess. Because the foam is compressed as the case is closed, the tandem pieces trapped in the compressed foam are as bruise resistant as fruit suspended in jello.

When you order a Santana Stowaway tandem and a $999 SafeCase together, we’ll throw in QuickSwitch cable unions and auto-extracting crankarm bolts. Further, we’ll assemble and adjust your new tandem before carefully stowing it into its new travel case. The SafeCase ships via UPS.
