Bikepacking: Adventure on two wheels

bike packing Tubolito

Bikepacking is an exciting and increasingly popular way of traveling that allows you to experience freedom on two wheels. Compared to traditional cycling vacations, bikepacking offers a more intense nature experience and greater independence.

What is Bikepacking?

Bikepacking is a mix of cycling and backpacking. Unlike traditional bike touring, which often involves carrying heavy panniers, bikepacking focuses on traveling with a minimalist set-up. It’s about packing everything you need compactly and riding light. This makes the bike more agile and allows you to travel on dirt roads and remote routes.

Route planning and navigation

One of the most exciting aspects of bikepacking is the ability to explore remote and less-traveled trails. Choosing the right route is critical to a successful bikepacking adventure. There are numerous resources such as online maps, GPS apps, and bikepacking forums that can help with planning and navigation. Research your desired route to know water sources, overnight accommodations, and potential challenges ahead of time.


Enjoy the freedom of nature

Bikepacking allows you to enjoy the freedom of nature to the fullest: explore breathtaking landscapes, discover remote places and experience nature up close. Due to the flexibility and mobility of the bicycle, bikepackers can get to unique places and experience unforgettable moments far from the beaten path. It is a way to escape from everyday life as well as connect with nature.


The right equipment

Bikepacking is all about having the right equipment. In addition to a sturdy off-road bike, lightweight and waterproof panniers are essential. Also, a repair kit for the bike and enough food should always be there. 

In this respect, every gram counts when bikepacking. Any additional ballast can make the ride more difficult and impair the riding experience. Therefore, choosing the right tubes is of great importance.


So what advantages can Tubolito offer you?

Lightweight: A decisive factor in bikepacking is the weight of the equipment. Tubolito tubes are significantly lighter than conventional butyl tubes. They weigh only a fraction of conventional tubes and can thus reduce the overall weight of your equipment. This saves you energy and allows you to cover longer distances with less effort.

Compact design: Tubolito tubes are made of a special thermoplastic elastomer, which gives them high elasticity and flexibility. This allows them to be folded or rolled up much more compactly than conventional tubes. This saves valuable space in your gear to carry other important items.

Robustness and puncture resistance: Although Tubolito tubes are lightweight and compact, they are by no means less robust. On the contrary, they are extremely resistant to punctures. This means you don’t have to worry about punctures even in remote areas. Tubolito tubes stand up to the challenges of bikepacking and offer reliable performance on a wide variety of terrain.

Quick repair option: Even if a puncture occurs, you can get back on the road quickly with Tubolito hoses. They can be easily repaired without you having to change the tube. With a TPU tube repair kit, you can quickly seal smaller punctures and continue your ride. This is especially handy if you’re traveling in remote areas and don’t have spares readily available.

Environmental friendliness: Tubolito tubes are not only functional, but also environmentally friendly. They are made of a recyclable material, helping to reduce waste. By choosing Tubolito hoses, you are contributing to environmental protection and sustainability.

With their light weight, compact design, robustness and ease of repair, Tubolito offers many advantages for adventurous bike tours. Get the most out of your bikepacking experience and enjoy nature to the fullest on your bike!
