52" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole
These ultralight carbon fiber tent poles are the perfect substitute for setting up our Plex Solo tents if you do not use trekking poles. The 52” size is designed specifically for the Plex Solo but will work with other tents that take a similar size pole.
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.

Bite Size Poles
Ooooh my! The Solo Plex has been the dream tent for my solo bikepacking trip from the south of Spain to my home in Scotland. I ride a small frame bike and have always struggled fitting tent poles in my bag. This pole is split into bit size chunks meaning I can finally fit them in my frame bag - YAY! Love very much!!
Perfect for bikepacking
When purchasing my tent I wanted to also be able to use it for bikepacking adventures. Obviously one wouldn’t be carrying a trekking pole when cycling so the idea was that I could bring this pole along, and it would just disappear into a frame bag and I could use my zpacks tent and not have to worry about needing to bring a freestanding tent with poles just because I’m not using a trekking pole on my bike ride. Carbon fiber seems to be great quality and nice retracting shock cord. Maybe putting a tiny bit of oil or lubricant on the grounded section that inserts into the next section might make it feel like a million bucks when assembling, I didn’t do this but thought of doing it.
Light and folds up small
