Lone Rider Launches New ‘ADV Tent’ For Adventure Riders

New compact tent specifically designed with the adventure rider in mind.

Published on 04.26.2019

Whether the intention is to simply spend the weekend motocamping in a nearby forest or to dedicate the next several months conquering the Pan-American highway, the Lone Rider ADV Tent was designed and developed with the rider in mind.

According to Lone Rider, the new addition to their tent family is custom designed for all aspects of adventure riding. From packing to gear storage, every part was thought about and tested on the road.The ADV Tent sleeps two riders plus gear comfortably, and one rider plus gear very comfortably with room to spare. At an interior height of 93 centimeters, the new tent provides ample space to sit upright inside the tent or even suit-up inside when inclement weather discourages the rider from doing so outside. In addition, four zippers provide 6 different possible entry points to choose from, depending on the wind direction and personal preference.

An awning kit is included for shelter against rain, shade or cooking outside.


“I hope, that adventure riders recognize the details and thought that went into the tent because the features are so seamlessly integrated that it’s taken for granted,” said Lone Rider COO, Andrew Dysart. “Some of the small details include a “cable flap” so you can run a Pacsafe net inside the tent and secure your valuables as well as inner door “locks” – a result of feedback from women ADV riders expressing that they would feel safer if they could lock the door zips when sleeping. Andrew adds “one of the best things for me personally is space. There is a lot of space both inside and out, for gear. When living in a tent for years, it is important to have a home on the road.”

The ADV Tent can be used with or without its rain fly, which provides complete protection from rainfall while maintaining ventilation. The rain fly is constructed from an ultralight, UV-resistant, rip-stop, and fire-retardant 210T polyester fabric. The frame of the ADV Tent is a one piece, aircraft grade 7001-T6 aluminum pole system which allows quick and easy set-up or break-down.

Extra large door for easy access. Riding gear like neck braces or water reservoir backpacks won’t catch when entering or exiting the tent.

Once inside the tent, the user can use any number of different pockets and storage spaces to organize their gear, including a center ceiling storage platform and lower/upper storage pockets at each corner of the tent’s interior. At the corner of each tent the user will also find sealable cable-flaps, which allow power to be run into the tent at designated campgrounds and gear to be locked up inside the tent via a separately sold Pacsafe net.

The tent can be configured to suit the climate and conditions:

Lone Rider Adventure Motorcycle Tent

• Full cover fly option for 100% rain protection
• Half fly option for gear storage and panoramic views
• Inner tent coverage for optimal airflow but with basic rain protection (jungle camping).
• Inner tent for hot camping conditions.
• Rain fly only with the pole system
• 6 entry points depending on wind direction.

The tent packs into a heavy-duty, stuff sack style drybag that features compression straps for minimizing the overall volume of the tent when stored and reflective strips that increase the rider’s visibility to other motorists when on the road at night. Inside the ADV Tent’s dry bag is a dedicated and padded pole-bag that neatly stores the tent’s frame and stakes while preventing them from damaging the dry bag. Its packed weight with poles, fly, inner tent, guy lines, and stuff sacks is 3.35 kg (7.38 lbs), while its packed size is 16.5 in. x 5.5 in. (42 cm x 14 cm).

  1. Locking tent zip? They don’t realize they are in a tent? A knife makes another impromptu door very easily for the ne’er do well.

  2. Glad I still have the Eureka 2-person rectangle dome tent I bought fro backpacking way back in the late ’80s for well under $100. The Urethane coating and seams on the 54″x84″ floor and the sidewalls and fly are still in good shape and it packs small. the only downside is the 28″-long poles which I could shorten or replace if I didn’t have a good way to carry them.

  3. Sweet! Another $400 tent. Just what my adv kit really needs. And it packs to be long and not fit in my mosko bags or my wife’s Loop bags, perfect! And finally, an eight pound tent with a map of a place I’m not riding printed on the fly. Now when I’m sitting around post-ride with my buddies thinking “how can I make riding heavier and more expensive”, I’ll have the answer! Walmart sells a sub three pound tent for $26. Drop another $4 on seam sealant and you’re good to go.

    • “with a map of a place I’m not riding printed on the fly” ….Do you ride on Mars? from the article “Four versions of the Lone Rider are available, each displaying a different map on the rain fly: ADV Tent – Motorcycle Tent with no map artwork, ADV Tent Globetrotter – World Map, ADV Tent Euro Map – European Map with individual countries and the ADV Tent USA Frontier Map – USA map with states.”

  4. I’ve been using my Alps Mountaineering taurus 2man outfitter tent for years. Great build. What sold me was the 5 x 7.5 floor space and 44in. height. No issues in 4 yrs of heavy use. I think I paid $200. Unless the tent is made of kevlar and titanium thread I just can’t see spending that much.

  5. You should have credited Kinga with the pictures, Chili, her bike, her feet and the bike/tent and herself where ever she has been. Though too $ for my blood, I have a two door Eureka, two years old and greatly serves my purposes. Thanks, Kinga! Keep ridin!

    • Hey Sandy, the photos were provided by Lone Rider as part of their tent’s press release. But thank you for letting us know about Kinga. We have added her name.

  6. Looks nice. I’d like to see a video of the setup. Everything is expensive now days. Glad folks are making things for our sport.
