Lone Rider ADV Tent

LONE RIDER ADV TENT my first thought.

Lucky me, to get my hands on the new LONE RIDER ADV TENT. The third tent in the product range specialised for motorbike travellers and adventure riders. I’m not saying there are not good tents for the average joe, but Lone Rider always focused their product development on the rider more than the hobbyist camper.

I’m no fanboy for this brand, in fact, and maybe their biggest critic as I’m a long-time user of the MOTO TENT from the same company.
Using the MOTO TENT for the last three years solely on my motorbike tours allowed me to have a good understanding of what I expect from a specialist motorbike travel tend.

LONE RIDER has established themselves as one of the leading companies for motorbike travelling equipment.

The highest spec materials being used to build products of extreme durability. All this doesn’t come cheap, so these products placed in the more top end of the market.

Let’s have a closer look at the lone rider ADV tent.

Picking up the new tent in the included compression bag is already a major plus compared to the old bag.
The tent is now packed in the full spec waterproof compression bag, big enough to allow you to pack up in a hurry without struggling to get the tent in the bag. Two sturdy compression straps can reduce the size even more.

You may think this is not a big deal, but these are the things a seasoned motorbike traveller will appreciate.

Looking at all the included parts of the tent and feeling equality of all the items already gives me a great deal of reassurance.

I know I’m dealing with the same quality product I Head expected from this company.

Everything is exceptionally well-made and finished. The seams at double stitched glued and sealed. The aluminium hardware is the same aircraft Grade aluminium as used in the other tents. Extremely light and flexible but sturdy enough to keep the shape.
Setting up the tent was not a problem as the instructions are sewn into the top of the compression bag.
That included gei ropes are very strong, and the pecks are made of the same high-grade aluminium.

One exciting and maybe life-saving touch is that inclusion of an SOS groundsheet.
This can only be a good thing in case of an emergency.

So what are my thoughts after setting up this tent?

LONE RIDER ADV TENT shows his heritage. Lone Rider comes up with solutions for the severe motorbike traveller.
The flexibility of this tent and the practical size make the ADV Tent a must have for any serious adventure rider.

“There is nothing more important than knowing your gear is doing what you expect it to do”

Is it perfect?

I would say “almost perfect.” So far, I could not find any faults on material or build quality — everything about this product executed to the highest standard.
The only one thing you have to take into consideration is the separation between inner tend and the rain cover.
Setting up the tent in heavy rain will expose the inner tent to the elements.

Flexibility comes with a price. The ADV TENT is not cheap. In this price bracket of high end tends you have a lot of choices but when it comes to pedigree the Lone Rider ADV tent stands out from the crowd.

The details below are from the LONE RIDER website. https://lonerider-motorcycle.com.

So where do I go from here?

I’ll take the tent out on a camping trip and see how I get on with it. Let’s put all the tech talk to one side. The tent has to be fit for purpose.
Not just on paper but how you feel about it.
A tent is your sanctuary, your home from home. There are so many personal criteria your tent has to fulfil. Taking advise is one thing, giving it a run through is another.
Stay put as will come back with my personal experience with the LONE RIDER ADV TENT.

Setup up the tent could not be easier, assuming you read the instruction included in the top of the bag.

It is a very simple process an should not be a challenge for anyone. 
Groundsheet down, Aluminum poles in and top sheet on, done.

It is then when you discover the flexibility of this tent.

It’s not just the one size fit it all tent. I’m so used to set up and be done approach. The concept of the LONE RIDER ADV TENT is so radically different.
You have so many options to make this tent work for you.
