Lycra II is a light, airy 2 person shelter that excels at quickly responding to changing conditions. The fly can be quickly configured in multiple ways and the highly ventilated inner tent maximises air flow in warmer conditions. Rapid set-up is a direct result of the clip-and-hub pole system, which allows the inner tent to be set up without the fly when conditions allow.

Exped says:

Lyra II is built to provide lightweight, freestanding and affordable shelter for 2 people in 3 seasons for backpacking and trekking. 2 doors and 2 vestibules allow easy entry, exit and gear storage. Endostructure poles (poles on inner tent) allow easy set-up without the fly in dry conditions.

Pole segments are unified into a continuous, shock-corded array for rapid set-up. Strong and light micro-hubs strengthen the pole intersections and eliminate wear of the fly at these critical points. Multiple set-up and deployment modes allow Lyra to adapt to changing conditions and personal preferences for optimal comfort.

Help and advice:
  • Optimist Mode: When no rain is in the forecast, or your imagination, set up the inner tent only, without the fly.
  • Stargazer Mode: At the head end, full night-sky views. At the foot end, the fly is deployed for privacy or as a wind block.
  • Privacy Mode: The fly is fully attached and zipped up for maximum privacy and weather-proofing.
  • Ultralight, easy-use, flush-to-ground tent pegs
  • Pre-mounted guy lines with knot-free, easy-adjust tensioners
  • Pole/stake/accessories storage sack included
  • Colour-coded, glow-in-the-dark zipper pulls are easy to find at night
  • Ceiling mounted lamp pocket and gear loops
  • 12 included SwissPiranha tent pegs offer excellent holding power at a very low weight
