Updated for 2011, from the previously named Laser Photon Elite.New for 2011 is the smaller pack size, extra venting, and 4 additional guy points increased pitch stability.Note:Note: Due to the super light nature of the material used in the tents construction Terra Nova is unable to factory seal the seams, in a conventional method. However they are positioned and sewn in a way that minimises water penetration and its possible to add further protection yourself, with seam sealer, to fully waterproof the tent. A free black pole cover (tied on) is also supplied with the Laser tents to fully waterproof the main seam, add stability, protect the zip and add extra protection to the most exposed part of the tent to UV damage.
If you make sure to shave your mustache to trim weight before every backpacking trip or adventure race, the ultralite Terra Nova Laser Photon 1 One-Person Three-Season Tent's right up your alley. Fully packed, it weighs just 1lb 9oz and takes up about as much space as a water bottle, letting you stay as minimal as you need to, but it still comes with a fully waterproof silicone-coated nylon ripstop fly and floor to keep you dry and comfortable. The seams are carefully stitched and strategically located to shed water, but you should seal the seams to ensure total waterproofing, as the ultralite fabrication doesn't allow for traditional seam taping. Terra Nova did include a waterproof pole cover, which attaches over the single Scandium alloy pole sleeve to repel water and protect the zipper from damage. Since it sets up using a single pole, the Laser Photon isn't freestanding, but it comes with four reflective clam-cleat guy lines and 12 titanium stakes to make pitching a breeze. The single door features a minimal vestibule that provides just enough space to shelter boots and a pack, and the fly has roll-up tabs to encourage ventilation and stop your tent from becoming a stinky sweat palace. You can also buy the footprint separately and use Terra Nova's Fastpack system to cut down on weight even more on fair-weather trips or allow yourself to keep the 'stache without weighing yourself down.
The new Terra Nova Laser Photon Elite Tent is the lightest tent commercially available. Breaking new ground for lightweight tents Terra Nova have created the definitive racing tent for Adventure Racing, Mountain Marathons, and other short duration uses. With a packed weight of just 765g the Laser Photon Elite beats all competition, in the lightweight tents, hands down. With the same shape and dimensions of the Laser Competition user comfort is not compromised and the Laser Photon will still sleep two racers and one person in comfort. New fabrics and stakes create the bulk of the weight saving after painstaking research by Terra Nova. The titanium stakes weighs just 1g each and are exclusively available on the Laser Photon. The Laser Photon Elite features a silicon coated groundsheet, which allows lighter weight fabrics to be used and still maintain water repellant performance. The Laser Photon pitches flysheet first and the inner can be left connected, so it is exceptionally quick to erect. The transverse vestibule creates more usable space than a longitudinal vestibule and provides excellent shelter from the wind as well as a large entrance. Dac ultralight pole is both lightweight and strong. Reflective guy line ropes and reflective trim on poles sleeve aids in easy identification.
