Lightwave’s ultra range of semi-geodesic tents has been developed specifically for use where low packed weight and robust all-weather performance are paramount. The ultra tents are light enough to carry on extended wilderness treks, strong enough to withstand the worst conditions and require minimal pegging points for pitching.

Lightwave ultra tents have earned an enviable reputation for reliability and strength over the past six years. The latest generation of ultra tents introduce two performance improvements:

1. Even though the flysheet fabric is silicone-coated on both sides, the flysheet seams are also factory-taped. The flysheet is fully weather-proof.

2. The new ultra poles are very easily maintained. If a section breaks, it can be simply removed and replaced in a matter of seconds.

The fabrics used in the ultra tents are, in most cases, identical to those used in the hyper range of tunnel tents. They balance the conflicting requirements of strength and weight: any thinner yarn or lower fabric weight, and strength is seriously compromised. For guylines, ultra tents use a Dyneema/polyester cord that is 80% lighter than standard nylon. Each tent comes with a range of pegs to cover different ground conditions.

The Ultra range is a classic inner first pitch, semi-geodesic design and is ideal for wilderness trekking, lightweight back packing and adventure travel.

The Ultra series tents are all 4 season tents which are tough and fully water proof. The designs vary from 1 to 3 person tents with a choice of different porches. The Ultrix design has a modestly extended porch where as the Ultra XT has a larger extended porch.

Help and advice:
  • All critical seams are taped
  • One rear and two front vents
  • Multiple guypoints
  • Colour-coded pole sleeves
  • Bath-tub floor with reinforced corners and taped seams

Ultra tents are pitched inner-first. Lightwave is an ardent supporter of this pitching method for the following reasons:

1. It gives greater structural integrity. Because the poles run through sleeves on the inner canopy, they directly tension and support the walls and built-in groundsheet of the inner tent and give it taut and stable three-dimensional shape. In the outer-pitch system, where the poles pass through sleeves on the flysheet and there is no built-in groundsheet, the walls must be “tied” together at ground level by webbing straps and the overall structural rigidity is not as good.

2. It allows the flysheet to be tensioned better and more easily. Without external pole sleeves, inner-pitch tents have a more streamlined, “slippery” profile and thus a greater ability to withstand high winds.

3. It makes for a lighter tent and a simpler construction, since it does not require the connecting mechanisms needed to secure the inner tent to the flysheet.
