Carbon Fiber Tent Poles

Description:

These tent poles are made from high quality wrapped carbon fiber tubing with internal carbon ferrules. 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. We have three different thicknesses of Carbon depending on the length of the pole.

Our 22" and 32" poles are made from thinner carbon because they don't need to be as strong (or as heavy) at that length. Our 48" and 52" poles have taped joints to improve their strength. Our 58" pole is made from much thicker stronger carbon to support it at that length, but the price is significantly higher.

Most of our poles have a short folded length, so they can be packed up with your tent (in a tent pole sack). Our Altaplex pole folds to 16" and can be carried in your backpack's side pocket.

If you want to use these with a tarp, or on an exterior tent pull out, you might want a tent pole cup to hold it in place.

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. This size won't fit our 58" pole. A longer, wider pole sack for dome tent poles is available on the stuff sacks page.
