The Cloudburst 3 has room for 3 or, according to Bikepacking.com, the right amount of space for two bike tourists who love each other and would like to continue doing so. Some may find that the equation for the ratio of comfort to space is a little different when the weight is on your bike, not on your back.
The two stake set-up and weather worthiness of the Moment DW make it a popular choice for cyclists who need a quickly-pitched tent to handle a wide variety of conditions. The Moment DW has been used for bikepacking trips in the French Alps; we also know of not one, but two (!!) people carrying them on multi-year world tours. Updated for 2019, the struts can be easily removed so the tent body is fully stuffable!
Our most popular solo shelter, the ProTrail is the lightest, most compact option for bike travel. We’ve heard of folks using the ProTrail for everything from fast and light weekend trips to longer pedals on the Colorado Trail.
The award-winning Double Rainbow is our most popular, 2-person tent. Updated for 2019, it features more interior space and a fully stuffable body. Product testing for the 2019 Double Rainbow included an 8-day bike tour down the Oregon Coast and a week on the Great Divide Mountain Bike Route in Montana.
The MoTrail is a two-person version of the ProTrail. It offers 44% more floor space, enough for a second person or for all four of your panniers, your handlebar bag, AND your backpack. The MoTrail was the tent of choice on a gravel road tour across the state of Nevada.
The StratoSpire 1 is our best-performing solo model across the widest range of weather conditions. In addition to the strength and space, some bike travelers choose the StratoSpire 1 (or its big sibling the StratoSpire 2 or its ultralight sibling the StratoSpire Li) because it is possible to fit a bike in the vestibule area.
