SCICON UNVEILS ALL-NEW AEROCARDBOARD EVOLUTION® BIKE BOX.
|The bike box reinvented
Romano d’Ezzelino- April 1, 2015- Scicon Bags® today unveiled the all-new Scicon-designed AeroCardboard Evolution®, a new bike box reinvented to deliver the lightest bike box ever.
Every component of the existing market leader, the Scicon AeroTech Evolution TSA bike box has been meticulously redesigned to create a product that exceeds all expectations.
10 times lighter than the AeroTech Evolution TSA, the AeroCardboard Evolution® ships with with a stunning 1,2 kg only, dramatically lighter than any other bike box in the market.
The use of highest quality, corrugated cardboard material with 275 Mullen BC triple-wall board technology- the strongest on the market today, brings a new dimension into the manufacture of bike boxes.
“Scicon has reinvented the bike box with the new AeroCardboard Evolution®, and at just 1200 grams it is the lightest Scicon bike box ever,” said CEO Massimo Fantin. “Every component of the new AeroCardboard Evolution® reveals a new dimensions of efficiency in manufacturing and usability. From use of lightweight materials and reduction of complexity to the removal of unnecessary features, the AeroCardboard Evolution® is the future of bike boxes.”
The all-new Scicon AeroCardboard Evolution® is an intricate fusion bringing together the best features of the AeroTech Evolution TSA bike box and leading cardboard box technology. The high-tech design and well-recognized silhouette of the Scicon AeroTechEvolution TSA bike box with proven track record for functionality and awards winning design has been maintained and will assist the all-new AeroCardboard Evolution® to reign as the pinnacle of bike boxes worldwide.
The all-new AeroCardboard Evolution® provides a dramatically new way of thinking.
Although the predecessor, the Scicon AeroTech Evolution TSA is the only bike case worldwide with official license to carry TSA locks, Scicon has found an even better way to allow quick and easy access to customs authorities.
Every AeroCardboard Evolution® is equipped with a conveniently packed roll of 48 mm x 54.8 m 9.0 mil max strength performance duct tape with improved technical specifications and an integrated heavy-duty snap off utility knife with cushioned grip for safer handling.
The extremely practical and clever accessory bag to store the seatpost, saddle, pedals and tools, formerly made out of Denier Nylon, has been completely reinvented to deliver a retro appearance. A flat, brown paper bag with side gusset in the dimensions of 100mm x 150mm x 30mm blends in with the finish of the AeroCardboard Evolution® and will soon be made available as accessory in further color options and finishes.
This clever multi-purpose bag allows the use also for unconventional occasions. If travelling to the USA, the bag can double-up as a disguise for hard liquor if one should fancy a sly swig in public.
“The idea to develop a cardboard box evolved from extensive market research and competitor analysis,” says Christian Pearce Global Sales & Marketing Manager and adds: “We found that the biggest and most threatening competition came not from other bike box brands but from the ordinary cardboard box.
Research revealed that the vast majority of cyclists insist on completely dismantling their bike and to squash it into what is essentially a giant cereal box. Endless research, with the support of several external consulting firms and conceptual experimentation guided by leading product engineers and designers from the aerospace industry revealed a new leeway to further grow the brand.
We knew that if we would measure ourselves with a flimsy cardboard box, whatever we would develop, would have to be the best cardboard box ever made. And we have made it, the AeroCardboard Evolution®”
