Until now tent manufacturers have been restricted in their attempts to create smaller pack size tents by the length the tent poles fold down to. Terra Nova Equipment has created a range of tents with tent poles which fold down to just 29cm. Compared with the poles on their lightest tent – the Laser Ultra 1 which holds the Guinness World Record for the lightest tent in the world - this is around a 25% reduction.
The range of 3 Starlite tents are perfect for the fast growing pursuit of Bike Packing, for motorbike touring or for travellers looking for a more compact pack size shelter.
The 3 new tunnel tent models are quick and easy to pitch and have good ventilation. The Starlite 1 has a packed weight of 1.12kg, the Starlite 2 has a packed weight of 1.53kg and the Starlite 3 has an extended porch which will accommodate bikes and a packed weight of just 2.38kg. All models have a packed length of just 29cm and sleep 1, 2 and 3 people respectively.
The tents also feature the new ‘Seam Plus’ water-resistant seam technology. This unique combination of seam construction and factory applied treatments to a silicone coated flysheet provides an extremely water resistant seam and peace of mind in heavy rain conditions.
