Finding a tent that strikes a balance between weight and durability is paramount for bikepacking. Then, finding one that has cycling-specific details is near impossible. Luckily for the brand Big Agnes, whose ultralight backpacking tents have been readily co-opted for bikepacking, adapting their most popular models to fit into the activity of bikepacking and bicycle touring was easy.
Big Agnes recently announced the Copper Spur UL1/UL2 Bikpeacking Edition and Fly Creek UL 1/UL2 Bikepacking Edition. The Copper Spur UL2 bikepacking edition tent features shorter tentpole segments, designed to fit between the shifters on a drop bar handlebar, in a frame bag, or just saving room in any pack. The bikepacking specific compression sack is built to withstand the rigors of the trail and designed with a versatile daisy chain attachment system. The tent has bike specific design features including a helmet sleeve under the fly and larger interior storage areas for bike gear.
Both of these models, the Copper Spur and the Fly Creek have been my favorite bikepacking tents for years and I cannot wait to see this system in person. Check out more detailed photos below, and keep an eye on Big Agnes for more information!
