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. In 2012, 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 available in three models: the g20 ultra with standard porch, the g20 ultra xt with a seriously extended porch, and the g30 ultriX with a more modestly extended porch (see dimensions).

The Ultra range is a classic inner first pitch, semi-geodesic design and is ideal for wilderness trekking, lightweight back packing and adventure travel. Even though the flysheet fabric is silicone-coated on both sides, the flysheet seams are also factory-taped making it fully weather-proof. The new ultra poles are very easily maintained.

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.
