The Telos Bikepacking two-person freestanding tent will radically change your perception of what a bikepacking tent can be. Sea to Summit’s engineers took the award-winning Telos TR2, equipped it with a poleset with shorter pole segments, and designed function-specific storage sacks to mount on your bike.
At its heart, the Telos Bikepack remains the same great tent on which Backpacker Magazine bestowed their Editor’s Choice Award. Space, Ventilation and Versatility now ready for wherever your bike adventures take you.
Please note: Due to the bikepacking concept, this tent does not contain a lightbar (like our other Telos tents).
Tension Ridge architecture delivers a better space-to-weight ratio than any tent in its class.
The poles of the Tension Ridge are swept upwards like the dihedral wing of an airplane – not angled downwards as is common in tents. This raises the tent’s shape, providing significantly more head and shoulder room, higher doors, easier access and more usable vestibule space.
Typical of Sea to Summit’s commitment to refining details to make gear frictionless and more functional, these machined aluminum clips make setting up the rainfly (either with the inner tent, or with a footprint in ultralight configuration) quick and easy. And they are far more durable than plastic buckles.
The gold standard in tent poles — our tents combine DAC Featherlite NFL, NSL and PRESSFIT sections.
Mounted at the highest point, Apex Vents allow warm moist air to escape and channel fresh air into the tent. The vent can easily be zipped shut from inside the tent and does not require mesh to retain its shape, significantly improving airflow. Baseline Vent allows you to control humidity in wet conditions by opening or closing lower portion of the door while maintaining vestibule function and rain protection for your gear.

How it started
"When we decided to take on ultralight backpacking tents, I knew who I wanted to collaborate with—master tent maker Jake Lah.
Jake is the father of modern tent architecture, and his company DAC produces some of the best aluminum poles in the world.
Both of us are driven by producing something better than what’s already out there—and I think we’ve achieved that with our ultralight backpacking tents.
The Alto and Telos deliver exceptional height and space—and are loaded up with unexpected features like adjustable venting and our unique Hangout Mode. They are, quite possibly, the most livable ultralight backpacking tents out there."
-Roland Tyson, Founder & Head Designer at Sea to Summit
Frequently Asked questions
What are the differences between regular and 'plus' models?
The Telos Plus has a nylon fabric inner (with unzippable vents) rather than mesh to prevent cold air getting into the inner tent. It also has a more waterproof floor (8000mm against 2500mm).
Do I need to use a footprint with this tent?
The Telos has a relatively waterproof (2500mm) floor, so can be used in fairly wet (but not downright boggy) conditions without a footprint. However, a footprint will protect the floor from damage on abrasive surfaces.
