The multiple award winning Laser Competition 1 set the trend for ultra light (less than 1kg) single person tents. It's ideal for anyone determined to keep pack weight to a minimum, whether travelling, backpacking or running mountain marathons. Despite its lightweight design, it will tough it out through 3 season weather conditions for medium duration trips.
Due to the lightweight nature of the materials, the fly sheet cannot be seam sealed, however smart design has reduced the number of seams that lie above the inner. The single main seam at the pole sleeve has a removable waterproof hood for additional protection and strength. The other seams are at the ends of the tent, away from the inner, so rain won't penetrate through to the inside.
Folding carbon rods support the tent ends and are so light and small they add virtually nothing to the weight and pack size, whilst the DAC alloy main pole brings strength and creates a roomy feel inside the tent. The Laser Competition 1, can be erected fly sheet only and used with a fastpack groundsheet to maximise speedy put up and take down whilst also reducing the weight even further. Designed for single person use, it'll accommodate 2 at a push.
Note: Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction Terra Nova are unable to factory seal the seams, in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and it's possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent. A free black pole cover (tied on) is also supplied with the Laser tents to fully waterproof the main seam, add stability, protect the zip and add extra protection to the most exposed part of the tent to UV damage.
