The stake fasteners consist in a reinforcement and a strap loop. On this loop, several types of adjusters are available:
- Normal : 2mm PES/dyneema cord adjustable with Lineloc (+12g).
- Ultra-light (UL) fasteners: 3 loops of 1.5mm cord.
- Ground fasteners by webbing + stainless rings : +65g
This option changes the linelocs fasteners for adjustable loops of webbing. The adjustment is very easy, ultra-durable and gives large versatility on snow or other difficult terrains.
Stakes : 155g
- 7 Rockpin stakes to anchor your tipi on the hardest grounds
- 6 UL duraluminium stakes for guylines when the weather turns bad.
Extension tube : 33g
The required length for the central pole is 155cm. We advise to use both of your trekking poles strapped together with the included webbing as a central pole. This solution is the lightest (5g) and very resistant : instuctions here (pdf).
If you use a single trekking pole, you can use the tube extension : this aluminium tube allows you to gain about 25cm of height on your trekking pole.
If you do not use trekking poles, a light and strong mostert pole is available.
