“My innovation may not change the world, but it will certainly change our world”
Many laughed at Dyson when he set out to disrupt the vacuum cleaner market. Equally many thought Steve Jobs a lunatic by bringing together a camera, telephone, portable music platform and email. Now, Brit innovator and Entrepreneur Martin Greene gets set to improve the bicycle transportation industry.
With unwavering resolve, Martin pulled together a team of carefully selected engineers and designers. All from different backgrounds, but all with a common interest – cycling. All agreed that the products on offer were at best adequate. So they set out to make things better and created ShokBox, the ultimate in bike transportation systems.
“When the cycling community pauses to take a moment, and look at what we have accomplished. I hope they will be as impressed as my Dad was,” jokes Martin. “We knew we were onto something good, but this bike box has genuinely exceeded our own expectations.”
Compare The Market
While it may seem bold to compare this innovation to Apple’s iPhone and the Dyson bag-less cleaner. Martin accepts that his innovation may not change the world, but it will most certainly change the cycling world.
There hasn’t been very much help financially to get this project off the ground and so the ShokBox team has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. The campaign has helped identify the market and demand for the product. Then just two weeks into the four-week campaign the bike box project has received funding to the tune of 85%.
Martin has received many emails of encouragement and his inbox has been flooded with goodwill messages from well-wishers who see the necessity for this huge leap forwards. The general opinion is something that works very well and looks good too!
Cycling in the UK is great, but sometimes you are going to want to take your bike on a bit more of an adventure. Biking around the world is an amazing experience and allows you to see some of the parts of the world that you may not ever have before.
The only problem is transporting your bike around. Sure, you can send it on a plane, but is that always the safest or securest option?
The idea behind the ShokBox came about after a trip to Italy resulted in some costly damage to a rear Mech and hanger. The creator decided that seeing as we were now firmly in the 21st century, transportation for bikes around the world should be too. After all, if we can wear a helmet cam to capture our rides. Then surely we should be able to protect our bikes properly too?
It started by creating the basis for a revolutionary anti-crush system as well as provide impact damping too. Both things are vital when a bike is being transported. Whilst we all hope that our bikes are going to be handled carefully. We know from experience this really isn’t always the case.
The New ShokBox® is not only just about protecting the bike whilst it’s being transported, but it also protects it from theft or loss too. The case not only provides a built-in GPS feature, which means that you can use your smartphone to see exactly where your bike is at all times. It also has a raft of design and engineering features that keep your bike safe and secure. It really does have it all!

Of course it took some doing but this is now December 2019 and we are happily trading.
