There is no way this festival would have happened without the assistance from our supporters and contributors. We are grateful to have such pivotal adventure cycling brands and organisations on board who will all have a physical presence at the event. There may even be some bargains to be had from some of the brands.

No Attitude Just Ride. Bombtrack Bicycle Co hails from Cologne, Germany, and was established in 2013 by the guys from ‘We Make Things’, the German bicycle group who have been making bikes for over 20 years and are probably best known for their BMX brand We The People.

At Brathay we know everyone has the capacity to do extraordinary things that can inspire and benefit others. This drives our mission to improve the life chances of children, young people and families by inspiring them to engage positively in their communities.

Starting in the early 80's as a distributor of other outdoor brands, Exped began to build our own gear in 1997. Since then they have created many highly innovative products and won many awards for their designs.

Halo is a UK brand run by a team of dedicated cyclists who compete in many disciplines. Since the mid 90’s, we’ve been producing wheels that have gained the trust of world champions and athletes at the top of their game – not just in the UK but all over the world. We have wheels to suit every style of riding, from BMX to the Pro peloton, and many loyal followers.

Light My Fire is a Swedish company that has chosen to manufacture their products at their home in Sweden. The reason is simple: Having a factory completely dedicated to their products gives them full control over quality matters, shorter lead times and fewer unnecessary transports. It's good for the end product. It's good for the environment. And they'll happily admit it does feel good to be a local hero in Västervik.



Miss Grape was originally created from an idea in 2012, but as bikepackers we were making our own bags long before this. We concentrated our efforts in to sourcing the most appropriate fabrics, which is often underestimated.

For 45 years, the MSR brand has stood for cutting-edge backcountry-gear engineering. Our passionate fusion of mountaineering and engineering has led to a succession of groundbreaking products—from stoves, tents and snowshoes to cookware and water filters—that have revolutionized the outdoor industry. That’s why MSR gear has been taken on expeditions around the world, standing up, time and time again, to some of the most demanding situations imaginable.

Ortlieb have been manufacturing bicycle luggage since the early eighties and have since become synonymous with waterproof bicycle bags. The legendary “Back-Rollers” made a decisive contribution to this reputation. Hundreds of thousands of Back-Rollers are travelling around the world as faithful companions. They are the “on wheel” evidence that durability is a promise by ORTLIEB.

Salsa Cycles is Adventure By Bike. Their bicycles, components, and accessories are all designed to help you experience more through cycling. Salsa is dedicated to keeping the spirit of adventure alive in bicycling.

Shand is a small independent British bicycle company located in Scotland, fabricating hand-built production bikes here in the UK as well as designing and supplying carbon fibre bikes manufactured by our partners.

At Surly we believe that the frame is the number one contributing factor to ride quality and that steel is, hands down, the best material for a bicycle. If you’re looking for a frame that will be kick ass to ride, day in and day out for a long long time, then a Surly is where it’s at.

Since we invented the very first self-inflating camping mattress in 1972, Therm-a-Rest has been committed to creating the finest portable outdoor comfort solutions for every kind of adventure. Our product offerings represent the leading edge of innovation across mattresses, sleeping bags, cots, pillows, hammocks, seating and more, with the majority of it still made in Seattle, USA, where it all began over 40 years ago. However you enjoy the outdoors, having Therm-a-Rest comfort along for the ride makes it better.
