Featuring the patent-pending AirLock connector system, the three-person Hat-Trick's carbon tent poles are stronger & 56-percent lighter than traditional aluminum poles with shock cords. AirLock replaces heavier shock cord with a short ultra-strong monofilament tether.
The field-replaceable modular design starts with a precision-machined aluminum/carbon composite core tube. This core mates to pressure-melded Delrin receivers that pressure-fit between the high-strength carbon fiber pole sections.
