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.

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.

Light & strong

This product is worthwhile purchasing. It is light and strong and means our campsite can remain while we day trip from camp. Customer service from Zpacks is next amazing, thank you

Pack and tent

I haven’t used either my tent or my pack. I bought both for summer hiking. Now is 4 season gear here in Idaho!

Pole Caps

Great poduct...The lightweight poles fit great! The only issue is that the caps come off after setting up my tent the first time. It did not cause a problem other than I did not want to loose them. I do plan on adding a small amount of glue to the ends of each of them. Other than that I am a happy camper. Thanks G. Iovine AKA “Wander Woman“

48" Carbon Fiber Tent Pole

Somehow, the pole was sent to an RV Park in Montana. But I called the RV Park and they sent the package along to my home. Aside from that, I bought the pole in order to use my Duplex tent on a cross-county bike trip. On backpacking trips, I use my hiking poles to support the tent. The 48-inch poles are light in weight, but are not adjustable, which is a shortcoming. Also, the poles are fragile and much be handled with care to avoid breaking them. But for my long-distance biking trips, I'm glad I have the carbon fiber poles.
