Here on the Radavist, we often see bikepacking coverage from Peru, but what’s it like to shred the trails without 30 lbs worth of camping shit strapped to your bike?
Some of our friends from Bozeman and Los Angeles got together with others from around the US to do the Swift Campout in Idaho and things went… well… you’ll have to watch!
“Like Coal did within the snowsports scene, Seattle’s Swift Industries built a brand by creating high-quality, beautifully-designed products for a particular community: bike commuters and bike tourers. As Seattleites and cyclists ourselves, we’ve been following their evolution, and when the opportunity to get involved in their annual Solstice Campout arose, we bit. The Campout is a global call for riders to get out of town on a bike-camping adventure with friends. Riders can join up with local Campouts published on their site, or they can do their own thing. We decided to build our own, an ambitious 4-day backcountry route in rugged Central Idaho. We invited our friends from Tenkara Rod Co. and Latigo Coffee to join us, and opened up the ride to anyone else who might be interested, ultimately making a crew 14 deep from Seattle, PDX, LA, SLC, Denver, Boise, and Bozeman. Also in the mix were 2 videographers and 4 photographers to document the adventure.”

Shreddable geometry? Check. Three frame materials? Check. Components that last? Check. Chunky tires? Check. Good lookin’? Check. See more at Kona! Also, damn, that trail looks amazing!
We don’t post these videos all too often, but when wrecks happen at the tour, there’s an increase in gnar factor. Luckily Philippe Gilbert appears to be ok! Got a favorite Tour crash? Post it up in the comments!
Damn. This is good! Thanks for sharing, Kym!
