BIKE SHELTER – TOURING
Our Bike Shelter Touring – came naturally as an extension of our experience in Motorsports internationally, we call it our “Bike Kubby”. Severe weather and continued exposure are not the friends of performance vehicles.
We found a premium manufacturer with over 20 years of experience in design, development and creation of extreme weather camping tents. And from there produced an awesome bike shelter for our two-wheeled fanatics! Our collective experience in protecting lives and performance machines in severe outdoor conditions means we can offer a solution for protection of motorcycles in the harsh Australian environment.
Touring Bike Shelter – 2 Sizes – Great Protection!
The need for an affordable storage solution providing full protection from sun, hail, dust, and rain was clearly apparent. Beyond a basic throw-over cover, there didn't seem to be much available on the market. Therefore, this was the reason we dedicated the time to develop an excellent motorcycle cover. Our bike shelters will give you the best protection at an affordable price.
It was our interest in touring bikes, manufacturing experience, and awareness of a definite need that inspired us to design, develop our retractable, waterproof, full protection – Bike Kubby!

Is a Kubby Sunproof?
UPF ~30+ Fabric
We designed a Kubby to keep the rain, wind, dirt, hail, and sun off of your treasure . The chosen fabric is light weight, waterproof (more on that elsewhere) and it also keeps more than 96.7% of harmful UV radiation from damaging the paint, plastic, upholstery, seals, and rubber on your vehicle. And in the Dove Gray fabric, it also reflects the sun and minimizes heat retention which is another enemy of vehicle longevity.
According to recent testing by Consumer Reports, UPF ~30 is typical for protective fabrics, while UPF ~6 is typical for standard summer fabrics – so we have truly “hit the mark” on this one!
What is UPF?
A relatively new rating designation for sun protective textiles is the UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor). UPF represents the ratio of harmful (sunburn-causing) UV radiation measured without and with the protection of the fabric. For example, a fabric rated UPF 30 means that, if 30 units of UV fall on the fabric, only 1 unit will pass through to the object below. A UPF 30 fabric that blocks 29 out of 30 units of UV is therefore blocking 96.7%. UPF is new and relatable to SPF (Sun Protection Factor) measurements. While SPF traditionally use human sunburn testing, UPF is measured using a laboratory instrument (spectrophotometer or spectroradiometer) and an artificial light source, and then applying a sunburn weighting curve (erythemal action spectrum) across the relevant UV wavelengths.
|UPF Rating||Protection Category||% UV radiation Blocked|
|UPF 15 – 24||Good||93.3 – 95.9|
|UPF 25 – 39||Very Good||96.0 – 97.4|
|UPF 40 – 50+||Excellent||97.5 – 98+|

Making things Waterproof
When we say a Kubby is waterproof, which means that it does not leak when the environment dumps its load on your precious treasure. To do that well, you need taped seams, a fabric that stands up to a recognized level of hydrostatic pressure and a really clever design that prevents water pooling on the structure.
This guide walks you through why you want Taped Seams on your garment, tent or Kubby. When you take a nice piece of waterproof material and sew through it, you punch holes through the waterproofing making it a sieve.
To waterproof or weatherproof a garment, tent or Kubby – these holes need to be sealed up, and the easiest way to do that is for the manufacturer to apply a hot-melt tape over the seams of the tent. It’s rather like Sellotape which sticks when you iron it on. And we get it done right the first time.
All top end outdoor tents and weatherproof shelters will feature taped seams. It’s just the ‘right’ way to do it. And many waterproof jackets and trousers will also feature taped seams.
