These ultralight carbon fiber tent poles are the perfect substitute for setting up our tents if you do not use trekking poles. The 48” size works with our Plexamid, Duplex and Triplex tents.

We also have a 32" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole for propping up the head and foot ends of your tent.

  • 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.

  • 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 rigid, unlike dome-style tent 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.

  • Our poles have a short folded length, which makes them easy to pack up with your tent (in a tent pole sack).

  • If you want to use these with a tarp, or on an exterior tent pull out, you might want a trekking pole cup to hold it in place.

  • If you want to keep your poles organized or protect your tent fabric from the pole(s), add our Tent Pole Sack.

  • We do not do any carbon cutting, but you can cut these down yourself with a hacksaw or rotary saw. Just cut off the end and replace the vinyl end cap.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two-year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

Very light and stiff!

I have not used these yet but they seem to be very well made. The perfect solution to when I want to have my trekking poles available after I set up my base camp.

Perfect for Bikepacking

These are perfect for my Bikepacking trips. They are very light and fit well in my frame bag. Now I don’t have to strap my trekking poles to my bike!!

Instead of Hiking Poles

Great lightweight product for my tent. Which will enable me to use my hiking poles while staying at a camp site a few days without taking my tent down.
