"Launched in 2012, Lightwave’s hyper range has been developed specifically for use where low packed weight and robust all-weather performance are paramount. The hyper tents are light enough to carry on extended wilderness treks, and strong enough to withstand the worst conditions where alternative shelter is not an option.
The hyper range offers three major performance innovations:
1. Hyper tents are completely multi-pitch. In other words, they can be erected flysheet-first, inner-tent first, or integrally.
2. Even though the flysheet fabric is silicone-coated on both sides, the flysheet seams are factory-taped making them fully weather-proof.
3. Hyper poles are fully maintainable in the field. Should any sections fail, they are easily removed and replaced with the spares provided with each pole set.
The fabrics used in the hyper tents strike a calculated balance between strength and weight (any thinner yarn or lower fabric weight, and fabric strength would be seriously compromised). For guylines, hyper tents use a Dyneema/polyester cord that is 80% lighter than standard nylon. Each tent comes with a range of different pegs to cover all ground conditions, from hard-packed earth to loose sandy soil."
