Strong, durable and lightweight two-person tunnel tent optimised for bikepacking

Offering both strength and durability in a lightweight package, the Lightwave Trail series is a range of affordable performance tents optimised for wild camping, backpacking and long-distance trekking. Utilising the tried-and-tested tunnel shape with an arched pole design for added rigidity, they are built from proven fabrics and components to give outstanding all-round performance. With the versatility to pitch flysheet-first, inner-tent first, or all-in-one, they’re well suited to a range of different weather conditions in all seasons. The XT features an extended porch to give extra storage on extended trips or bikepacking expeditions. With a specification that focuses on robust handling and long-term durability, these are tents that can be truly used and abused – whether you’re hiking the Pennine Way or bikepacking the North Coast 500.

    • The fabrics used in the trail tents strike an excellent balance of strength and weight
    • The trail tents multi-pitch options. This means they can be erected flysheet-first, inner-tent first, or integrally
    • Each trail tent comes with two types of peg to cover different ground conditions – from hard-packed earth to loose sandy soil
    • Lightwave gives a Lifetime Guarantee to the original owner against defects in materials and craftmanship
    • Packed Size: 45 x 20 cm
    • Weight: 2.92 kg
    • The trail flysheet is made from nylon with a yarn thickness of 40 denier. Lightwave has been using this fabric in its robust trek range for the past ten years: there is no better balance between strength (high), weight (low) and price (medium).
    • The trail groundsheet is made from a truly heavyweight 200-denier nylon, which is twice the denier (yarn thickness) of most groundsheet fabrics and makes it exceptionally tough.
    • Trail tents use the workhorse 7001-T6 aluminium alloy that is the standard pole-set material for the vast majority of lightweight tents. The reason is simple – 7001-T6 aluminium alloy is very resilient, extremely well-proven and carries a very small weight penalty over marginally lighter, stiffer alloys.
  • Inner length 225 cm
    Inner width 130 cm
    Inner height 108 cm
    Porch 175 cm

  • Lightwave is a small, specialist brand dedicated to making high-quality, functional and honest gear designed for genuine outdoor enthusiasts – people who prefer to think for themselves about the sort of equipment they want, rather than accept the features-driven designs that so many brands insist they need. Lightwave’s functional approach means that all Lightwave products are uncluttered by unnecessary extras that add weight and complexity.
