Series 3 Sportube

High density polyethylene shell protects sailplanes during travel. It is designed to be lightweight while being strong and durable.

Wire Case Pin & shoulder strap included. Sportube can be locked for added security for shipping or non-airline related travel.

  • Fits most model sailplane configurations.
  • Wheels make those awkward loads easy to transport - just wheel them along like a suitcase.

The Series 3 Snowboard case is the same as the Multi-Pair and Waterskis case, so can be used for all sports. Also makes a great family travel case.

Tired of the hassle of checking your luggage at the airport? Why not ship your sailplane ahead of time with UPS/FedEx and have it waiting for you when you arrive.

All Sportube cases are blow molded from High-Density Polyethylene, which while being strong and durable is very lightweight. Each case is designed to protect valuable sports equipment from the abuses of airline check-in or shipping by carriers such as UPS and FedEx.

Additionally, when strapped to the roof of a vehicle, each case acts to protect your gear from road salt, dirt and grime.

Features found on all Sportube® Ski & Snowboard Cases include:

Hard Plastic Shell
Offers superior protection over a soft bag. The hard shell creates a shield around the equipment, thus protecting its contents better than a soft bag.
Unlike a soft bag plastic will not tear, while dings and dents may occur you can remain confident that your sports equipment will always be safe and sound.
There are no external buckles, zippers or permanently attached straps to get ripped, torn or broken.
Some airlines will only take liability for skis and boards packed in a hard case; soft bags may require a signed liability release.

Each Sportube is fitted with wheels that make it very easy and convenient to get the Sportube from the parking lot to the check-in desk.
Wheels are molded rubber and fitted with steel bearings allowing for durability and easy rolling.

Handle is located in a comfortable, ergonomic position to improve maneuverability. Shoulder strap can be re-positioned on the case to allow for hands-free carrying or towing through the airport. Shoulder strap can be detached for shipping and check-in.

Sportube cases can be used to carry and protect many other products, not just skis and snowboards. Cases have been sold for fishing rods, firearms, spear guns, kayak paddles, architectural plans, heart catheters, mining probes and swords to name a few items. The snowboard case makes an ideal water ski case and is being used by many professionals on the national and world cup circuits.
