Decathlon has been offering its 2-second tent for several years. But the old model was a bear to put away. The latest version, the 2-second Easy Tent, is a complete redesign that aims to make setting up and dismantling the camp faster than ever.
Decathlon is still fairly new to the United States and the world's largest retailer of sporting goods. It is slowly entering the US market and today announced a fast 2-second easy tent that could speed up the process.
Decathlon worked on an easy-to-place design for four years. His intention? To make nature more accessible to everyone. "With its new compact design and the patented assembly and dismantling system, the 2 Seconds Easy makes it easier than ever to set up the warehouse," says a press release.
We tested the old 2 second tent and although it was easy to set up, it was difficult to repack it when the camp was opened. The new 2-second Easy tent has a completely different design and solves this problem. The brand intends to offer durability and protection for autocamping.
How decathlon will disrupt the U.S. outdoor equipment industry (and why we can't allow it)
The world's largest sporting goods retailer has remained largely unknown to U.S. consumers, but that will change soon. I visited Decathlon Sports 'headquarters in France to see why – and how – this mega discount chain could change Americans' outdoor buying habits. Continue reading…
Decathlon 2-second tent: 2020 redesign
The creation of the first 2-second tent was a trip to the hinterland in 2003 when Jean-François Ratel, then product manager at Decathlon's hiking and camping brand Quechua, was challenged by the idea of creating a tent that could be assembled by itself . ”The team got to work and in 2004 Decathlon started the 2 second tent, which literally set up itself.
The 2-Seconds Easy launched today is another innovation that enables a more compact design with easier set-up and division, while at the same time providing better wind resistance and water resistance.
"For over four years, engineers, designers, product managers and customers exchanged ideas and concepts and challenged them to develop the 2 Seconds Easy with the aim of improving its folding effect and compactness," said Fabien, product manager at Quechua Marescaux, in a publication.
“In this way, Quechua teams developed and tested a new intelligent and accessible product to ensure mobility and speed. The refolding function is special about the 2 Seconds Easy – it is by far the easiest breakdown of a tent that we have ever made. "

Compared to the previous version, the 2-second Easy tent has more internal living space, a higher peak height and a self-supporting patented structure.
But for those who used the older model, the best update comes when you're ready to break the camp. Simply press a button to release the tent, which then collapses for easy folding. Once folded, the tent fits in a simple suitcase. Imagine opening and closing an umbrella.

We haven't tested the new 2-second Easy tent yet, but we've seen a zoom presentation on it. The tent seems to be much easier to assemble and disassemble than the old model. It also looks like a suitable structure for autocamping for two people.
The 2-second Easy tent costs $ 199 and can be pre-ordered now.
