Seattle-based Mountain Safety Research® (MSR®), the high-performance outdoor equipment brand that’s part of the parent company Cascade Designs, is excited to announce their newest tent, the Hubba Hubba Bikepack for spring 2024. Made for those who live to adventure on two wheels, the new Hubba Hubba Bikepacking tent series builds on the success of the award-winning Hubba Hubba and takes it up a notch with cycle-specific touches.
“As we’ve seen the rapid growth of bikepacking in recent years, we are very excited to introduce our first ever cycling specific tent for this growing sport,” said Kyle Thackray, product line manager for MSR Tents, Winter & Poles. “What’s great about this tent is that it takes the legendary Hubba Hubba design, which provides a perfect blend of weight, durability, and livable space, and adds cycling specific features like shorter pole segments, increased vestibule space, and a highly functional waterproof handlebar bag. As a long time bikepacker myself, I am very excited to bring this product to market.”
This new, incredibly packable tent has been meticulously designed with thoughtful features that all cyclists will appreciate. The tent features a handlebar stuff sack that integrates seamlessly with nearly any handlebar shape without taking up valuable bar space, handlebar spacers to keep the bag steady and out of the way, and shorter segment poles (DAC NSL 8.5mm) to fit between drops or in small spaces. In terms of the tent itself, its true rectangular floor, which MSR is known for, provides exceptional living space, with extra headroom and large vestibules for cycling gear. Oversized gear lofts, plus interior and exterior clotheslines make it easy to dry out sweaty or rain-drenched gear. Finally, its oversized storage pockets and strong construction made up of DAC poles and DuraShieldTM-coated fly and floors, make this tent best in class.
