Our 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. We have three different thicknesses of carbon depending on the length, and strength required for each pole.

Straight tent poles are an alternative way to pitch tents and tarps that are designed to be set up with trekking poles. This carbon is more rigid and it is not the right material for dome style poles.

The poles are cut to fold flush with equal length sections. They are bound together with shock cord. The ends have vinyl end caps.

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.

If you want to keep your poles organized and protect your tent fabric from the pole add a Tent Pole Sack.

We do not do any carbon cutting, but you can cut these down yourself with a hack saw or rotary saw. Just cut off the end and replace the vinyl end cap. You will not hit the shock cord.

Tent Requirements:

A Hexamid Solo takes a single 48" (122 cm) pole.

A Solplex takes a 48" (122 cm) main pole and a 32" (82 cm) back pole.

A Plexamid takes a 48" (122 cm) pole.
