Series 1 Sportube
Our smallest, lightest case, the Series 1, is perfect to hold one person's gear so you can travel light and efficient. Hard plastic shell protects your equipment whether traveling by plane, train, automobile or shipping via FedEx / UPS. Sportube cases are lightweight while being strong and durable.



Features
Wheels Improve Maneuverability 5-Year Warranty
  • Adjustable from 48" to 83" (122cm to 212cm) for a one size fits all solution (These are internal dimensions)
  • 168mm (6 5/8") Width x 140mm (5 1/2") Depth (These are internal dimensions)
  • Wheels improve maneuverability
  • Padded at both ends for additional protection
  • Lockable for added security
  • Hard plastic shell for uncompromising strength, durability and protection
  • 5 Year Warranty
  • Includes Easy Pull Handle
  • Mountable to Any Roof Rack for quick and easy transportation to your destination

  • Weighs approx. 8 lbs empty
  • When transporting your Sportube, whether your checking it at the airport, shipping it or strapping it to the roof of your car, we ALWAYS recommend taking the Easy Pull Handle off and putting it inside the Sportube, or your other luggage. Otherwise, you risk breaking the clip while in transport.
What Can Fit?
  • One pair of slpine dkis and poles (up to 165mm at their widest point-see below)
  • Two pair of skate or XC Skis and Two pair of poles
  • And Anything Else You Can Get to Fit!
Will My Skis Fit?
As skis and bindings evolved, in 2006, we modified the mold of all Sportube cases to increase the size to accommodate all ski models and binding types. If you have have a question about your particular set of skis and bindings, please double check the technical specs tab above vs. the widest part of your ski.
During testing at our HQ, we found we were able to fit a twin tip, full rocker pair of skis that are 160mm at their widest point. As long as you have regular alpine bindings, you are in the clear. If you do have riser plates or demo bindings (taller due to adjustment track), your skis need to be 140mm or less at their widest point.

Inside the Sportube
For added protection, we have padded both the nose and tail of the Sportube with durable foam to keep your gear as protected as possible. The telescopic design of the Sportube keeps your equipment secure when the Wire Case Pin or TSA Lock is in by keeping consistent pressure from the top and bottom of the Sportube.

Still on the Fence?
Need a little more convincing that Sportube hard-sided cases are far superior to any soft bag? Why Sportube?

Great Case, TSA is stupid January 6, 2018
Reviewer: Joe from Georgia  
I have a Series 1 and love the case. I have an issue that I hope someone can help me with. I have shipped my skis three times now and twice I have arrived at my destination to discover that TSA did not re-install the pin that secures the two halves after they inspect it. The first time I did not catch it until my case came apart and skis and poles went all over the airport lobby. Last week I dropped my case at the oversize drop (where TSA inspects it) and I specifically told the TSA agent that I would stand there while they inspected it and would put it back together. The agent basically laughed at me and said they could handle it. Guess what wasn't installed when I arrived at my destination. Fortunately, I learned from the previous time and had the pin on a lanyard so at least I didn't lose the pin this time. Anyone else have this problem and a solution? Love the case but I have to find a way to idiot proof it.

OMG!!! December 16, 2017
Reviewer: EILEEN MURPHY from FAIRFAX, CA United States  
I have a very unique use for my Sportube. I play a 36" Symphonic gong. The gong is hung on a 100lb stand made of steel. I play my gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes five days a week. I have NEVER met a yoga studio without stairs, and more stairs. It's bad enough that the gong weighs 75lbs, but add the stand into the mix....well, let's just say that chanting mantras is not enough to keep the occasional expletive from slipping out! And then one day a woman told me about Sportube and how it has wheels! The heavens opened up and I am now in heaven! After I break down my stand, I slip it into the adjustable tube and roll it up and down stairs, and it even fits in the back of my Mustang!!!

Pretty awsome for travel November 22, 2016
Reviewer: ANTHONY BROWN from GUYTON, GA United States  
I used my new sports tube to carry my skis to park city , Utah ! My gear arrived safely!  You know how the airline people handle your bags !  When I got home , there were a few scratches on the tube , but my skis were just as I loaded them !   The sport tube seems like it's gonna last for ever. !  Costs a little more than a soft ski bag , but well worth it. ! 😀😀😀😀

Big Fan of Sportube January 31, 2016
Reviewer: Scott Westerman from St. Louis, MO United States  
This was my second Sportube purchase.  I have had the double for almost 10 years and added a single to the collection.  The only way to transport your skis!

Great product but why are they not available in Oz January 24, 2016
Reviewer: Debbie Cashmore from Crows Nest, nsw Australia  
I've had my sportube (purchased in the UK) for well over 10 years & it's still going strong. This one was bought for my boyfriend... it was supposed to be a Cheistmas present, but he had to wait until mid-Jan because I had to order it in the US & have it delivered to our US hotel where we would be staying for our ski holiday. These used to be sold in Australia - why are they no longer available there? This is the best ski protection for international travel.
