This tent has always been dedicated to reducing weight. Every part of the design has been considered with that in mind. This year Helsport added another challenge: to improve the usability of the tent so that it is not only light, but also easier to pitch and more comfortable to use. The pole configuration has been changed to increase internal volume without making the tent any longer. It also takes half as long to pitch - they know, because they timed it!
The Ringstind Superlight 2 and Ringstind Pro 2 have the same pole configuration but with additional width and two completely separate doors and vestibules for greater comfort.
DAC Featherlite NSL poles
The poles have a widened end. The larger tube diameter offers 20 % more strength than the middle of the rod. This allows thinner tube walls, which reduces the total weight of the rods while maintaining the same stability. The poles are anodised in a special green colour. This process is more environmentally friendly than conventional treatments.
