Our History

I do a fair amount of travel with my bike. On or about the 100th time I had to wrap my frame in pipe insulation, pack it in my hard case, stuff pillows around the bike, lose my mind…etc., I figured that there was probably an easier way to do this. I asked my fiancé if she would help sew together some padded wraps that I could use over and over again, and that would minimize my bike packing time. Voila, the birth of the AlboPad. Friends started to ask if they could borrow them and interest started to get viral. I decided there might actually be a business in this so I filed a patent, sought out manufacturing, and decided to launch. We’ll see how it goes, but so far the response has been great. Thanks and I’m really glad that you care for your bike.

Our Process

Our wraps and bags are made of the finest, animal-friendly materials available. The primary material used is a high-grade, Wallaby vinyl that is durable, waterproof and easy to care for. The cinching material is Velcro-brand One-Wrap, the stitching thread is industrial-grade nylon and the padding material is mattress-quality ½-inch foam. Everything is cut, sewn and embroidered by hand to ensure that you’re purchasing the absolute finest quality protective wrap available on the market today.

AlboPads are reusable, padded, bicycle frame wraps that offer superior protection against the hazards of shipping, transport and storage. Modern bicycle frames and components can be very fragile when subjected to unintended forces such as drops, knocks and sharp blows. In most cases, pipe insulation, zip ties and tape are used to reinforce the bike while it is being packed in a carrying case, prepared for long-distance transport or prepared for storage. This method is time-consuming and the materials can only be used a few times before they break down. Our products are made of the finest animal-friendly components and are environmentally "green" as nothing is thrown away from one use to the next.
