Should you wish to travel with your Handy Bike on an airline, we have assembled some helpful information to assist in getting the bike on the airplane, and to assure your bike arrives safely and in good condition. It is recommended that you save the box your Handy Bike comes in, which provides packing to protect your bike from the scrapes and bumps inherent in any baggage handling.
Handy Bike Specs
Your Handy Bike is powered by rechargeable lithium ion batteries located in the front wheel. There are 13 batteries, each rated at 10.5 Wh (watt hours), well below the majority Airliners & TSA maximum of 100 Wh per battery. Keep in mind that the Airliners & TSA considers the charger to be a battery. However, chargers are permitted in both carry-on and checked bags. Please see this Airliners’ website for more information.When folded, the bike measures 420X160X520mm and weighs 9.8 Kgs, which is too large for carry-on. The box your Handy Bike ships in measures 540X205X505 and weighs 14.6 Kgs, including the charger. There are two recommended means of transporting your bike as checked baggage. The first is the original shipping box with its styrofoam packing and carrying handle. The second is the Rolling Backpack with its telescoping handle. Either will help assure your bike arrives in good condition.
These links are to pertinent documentation you may find useful in planning the airline transportation of your Handy Bike. We recommend taking a copy of the Handy Bike spec sheet and front wheel photo with you to airport security in the event the agents question the batteries configuration. Handy Bike does not guarantee that all airlines will allow travel with the bike, ultimately it’s at the airline’s discretion.
