JensonUSA bicycle mail order sponsors Bikerumor Interbike 2017 coverage

On your next backpacking trip, don’t leave your bike out in the open – bring it inside! Well, if you have the new NSR bikepacking tent that is. The product of a Korean cycling clothing company, apparently the brand recently bought out a tent manufacturer and is now making tents in house.

Tents like their NSR Bicycle Touring tent which is sold in two different versions – one for mountain bikes and one for road bikes.

The cavernous tent is built with specifically shaped bulges that are designed to accommodate either wide MTB bars out the side of the tent, or drop bars out the back. There are also wheel wells for the front tire, and a side pod for the crank. You can set the tent up without the bike inside (so you can go ride and leave the tent at basecamp), but when it’s time to put your bike to bed there are internal lines that connect to your bike, and are then staked into the ground outside the tent. That keeps your bike upright, internal space to a maximum, and from clobbering you in the head in the middle of the night.

Instead of a stuff sack, the tent packs up in and ships with a saddle bag – though you could easily carry it in another bag if you’d like. All together, the tent and bag is said to weigh about 4.9lbs, or 3.85lbs (1.75kg) for the tent only. At this time there is no rain fly available, but NSR says one is in development and that the tent is already waterproof and wind resistant. The tent will fit up to 29 x 3.4″ tires for the MTB version or 29 x 2.4″ for the road. In terms of actual room, the tent measures 82.68″ x 49.21″ x 49.61″, so if you weren’t storing a bike inside, it should fit two people easily. The tent conforms to CPAI 84  certification, and currently is priced at $270 with delivery expected in March.

The NSR RIDING Bicycle Tour Camping Tent features:

  • Size: 82.68 in (L) x 49.21 in (W) x 49.60 in (H) | 210 cm x 125 cm x 126 cm

    I still don’t understand why you would want your bike in your tent. I’ve bicycle toured over 8,000 miles and the bicycle did fine outside the tent.

    I have a Sierra Designs 2-person tent (2lbs 14oz) that I can put in a Revelate Sweet Roll along with my sleeping bag, pad and pillow. Why would I take up the entire saddle bag with this behemoth? And fits 2 without a bike inside? I thought the whole point was to keep your precious baby inside with you to whisper sweet nothings to it? Overbuilt and a waste of space

    Hahahaha. Hahahaha. That thing would give me nightmares. Fortunately I have my bike close to keep me safe… Wow.

    This is interbike.

    Have to agree that this product is a bit off the mark. My Big Agnes UL1 weighs less than 2lbs! But my grips and saddle do get wet overnight…!

    Designed by someone who has never been camping, nor ridden a bike far enough to get it dirty? In the history of bikepacking, has anyone’s bike ever been clean enough at the end of the first day that they would want it right beside their sleeping bag?

    It mostly solves the security problem as when you are asleep someone could steal your bike. But given that my touring bike costed lest than 400$, when you buy this tent, the seller has already stolen from you more than half a bike.

    Usually when Im camping I do my best to keep dirt, mud and debris OUT of the tent, so it only makes sense to bring my mud and dirt encrusted bike in the tent to sleep with me.

    Also one good breeze and this thing is going over, along with you bike on top of you.

    *Rides 100+ miles through dirt, mud, road grime, rain, possibly fecal matter.*
    “Not only will my bike surely perish if I leave it outside but I’d also like to put this filthy object as close as possible to where I sleep.”
