NEW: DD Hammocks’ first tarp designed for pedal-powered adventure!
The DD SuperLight – Bikepacker Tarp is designed to give you the freedom to pitch up anywhere on the trail, from a quiet roadside spot to an epic journey through the hills.
Setting up in mere minutes using your bike as an aid, this tarp will provide shelter and a comfortable place to lie down for the night (or for a lunch stop!) before the journey continues. A sturdy bike anchor strap pegged over the handlebars keeps your bike upright, whilst the tarp is looped over your saddle and pegged out behind for a spacious & fully 1-person shelter in seconds.
Incredibly lightweight & Compact
We know that weight and pack size are a huge considerations when packing your bike, so this tarp is made from DD Hammocks SuperLight material – the same fully waterproof and ultralight material as our popular SuperLight Tarps and Tents.
Including Pegs and anchor strap, the whole thing weighs in at just over half a kilogram and packs down incredibly small – leaving plenty of room for more in your seat pack, handlebar roll, or even your jersey pocket.
Versatile design – not just for bikes!
Despite the name, you don’t need a bike to use this tarp. With its’ innovative diamond-shaped design, plenty of peg loops, and a looped ridgeline this tarp can also be set up using a ridgeline cord for an overhead shelter between trees, or even pegged into the ground and configured into a “plough-point” setup! A perfect option for a quick rain shelter, ground bivi camp, or keeping the wind off your stove during a lunch break.
When used with a bike, we recommend guying out the additional guy-line loop to an external point. The set-up works best when this point is level to or higher than the loop – for example to a tree branch, or by taking the guy-line over a rock / fallen branch to raise the foot end.
