The Starlite 1 is an extremely lightweight 1 person tunnel tent designed for bike packing, cycle camping or the traveller looking for the smallest overall pack size.
Terra Nova says:
The Starlite 1 is one of the lightest traditional 1 person tunnel tents available with the added bonus of a very short packed length. It’s ideal for bike packing or travelling where overall pack size is paramount. The silicone coated flysheet has been treated with Terra Nova Equipment’s unique Seam Plus water resistant seam technology to provide a higher level of water resistance than a non-treated seam.
The tent poles of Terra Nova's Starlite 1 pack down to just 29cm long which means it will fit easily into most panniers or packs, the attachment loops on the outside of the compact storage bag enable it to be fixed directly onto a bike or rucksack.
The silicone coated ripstop nylon flysheet has been treated with Seam Plus technology, a unique development by Terra Nova Equipment which helps to seal the seams and provide a higher level of water resistance than a similar untreated flysheet.
The Starlite 1tent is designed for 3 season use ie Spring to Autumn weather conditions, and for medium duration trips where more space may be required. There’s a generous porch for the size of tent and the tunnel design provides plenty of space in the inner. The tent is suitable for wild camps on bike packing trips but is equally at home for campsite stays.
The simple tunnel design pitches as one ie the inner and flysheet together, which makes it quick and easy to erect at the end of a long day. Once pitched the buckle pegging points at each corner of the flysheet allow the tension to be quickly and easily adjusted. The inner door is one third midge proof mesh for good ventilation and the flysheet door opens to one side. The reflective guylines are made from Dyneema, Dyneema is three times as strong as standard guyrope of the same weight and has very low stretch for stability in all conditions.
