This bivouac is your reliable companion on motorcycle journeys, providing the necessary shelter and letting you enjoy the outdoors the purest way possible. The bivouac uses your motorcycle as a part of the supporting structure to reduce the package size to a minimum.
Materials are carefully selected, crafted to last and designed to provide a perfect shelter. There is enough room for one person and luggage. The zippered vent allows you to stand upright on your mattress. Luggage can be accessed quickly from the side.
The bivouac adapts fully to different motorcycle heights: from a low chopper, mid-sized scrambler to a high cross machine. In addition, your seat is always protected from rain, no matter what your choice of ride.
All materials processed are chosen with the aim of creating a product that you buy once in your life and will last for generations. The bivouac is made from Cordura®, a well-proven outdoor fabric. Robustness and durability are integral to this product’s construction, far beyond the rip-stop nylon of a regular tent. The fibers of this dense fabric are processed with a trademark coating for the highest level of water impermeability.
The Bivouac comes with a peg and pole pocket. It forms a rolled tent package only 15cm (6in) in diameter and 45cm (18in) in width. These dimensions can be adjusted to perfectly fit your motorcycle, from a thicker shorter roll to a thinner longer roll. The leather binding strap serves also for mounting.
Designed to deal with rough conditions in the mountains by those who know them best. Thought-through in every single detail while striving for the highest quality possible. It was important to cultivate a good relation to our local manufacturer, to guarantee the products quality and to know that it’s made under fair working conditions.
This is a Kickoff by a group of outdoor and motorcycle enthusiasts, who enjoy to travel minimalistic. We believe that this way of simplifying life to its bare essentials maximizes the experience. For us it is less about reaching a destination in a certain time, but much more about being out on the road.
Fabian is the driving force and creator of the bivouac. Dominik, Justin and Lucien did every effort possible to realize this Kickstarter campaign.
We would like to share our way of travelling with you with this project!

Risks and challenges
The bivouac is fully developed and ready to be produced in bigger quantities. All suppliers are well instructed and ready to deliver. We are off to a smooth start. Fabian experienced many production processes as a Industrial Designer, that helped him to prepare this moment as meticulously as possible.
However, as this is the first run, unexpected hiccups and delays can occur. In any case we will inform you immediately. We would like to share the progress and get you involved to let you enjoy this as much as we do!
