Carbon Fiber Tent Poles


These tent poles are made from high quality wrapped carbon fiber tubing. The tubes are stiff and have a high strength to weight ratio making them ideal for ultra light tent poles.

The poles are cut into equal length sections and are bound together with 1/16" shock cord. The ends have vinyl end caps. The poles each fold to 12" or less for easy packing.

Our newest poles have several improvements. The longer 48" and 52" poles now have double thick internal ferrules to prevent them from snapping in high winds, and each side of each joint is wrapped with non-stretching Cuben Fiber tape to prevent splits.

Tent Pole Sack:

You can add a stuff sack to keep your poles organized and protect your tent fabric from the pole. The sack is made from black 1 oz/sqyd Cuben Fiber and is 2.5" wide by 14" long. Fold the top down over your tent poles and use the shock cord draw string to keep them snug like a rubber band. A longer, wider pole sack for other brand poles is also available on the stuff sacks page.
