Laser ultra 1 Guinness World Record

Terra Nova has smashed the Guinness World Record for the lightest tent commercially available, with the Laser Ultra 1. The company recently received confirmation that the tent, which weighs just under 600g, is now the record holder. It snatches the title from the Terra Nova Laser Photon, trimming over 200g or 26% off the record in the process.


Terra Nova was awarded the Guinness World Record for the Lightest Tent Commercially available forthe first time in 2004. The Terra Nova Laserlite was a one person tent weighing just over 1kg, the same weight as a bag of sugar. Seven years and four Guinness World Records later, the Lightest Tent Commercially Available weighs nearly half of that at a mere 581g.

The Laser Ultra 1has been designed for short duration ultra events. Although its style follows thatof the popular Laser tent range developed by Terra Nova, the most strikingdifference is the colour; the silver translucent Ultra fabric used for the flysheet is incredibly lightweight but strong.

The Laser Ultra 1tent won a Gold European IF Design Award when it was launched at to the tradein July 2010 at the Outdoor show in Friedrichshafen, Germany.

Managing Director, Andy Utting said, ‘It is greatto see our investment in new technologies paying off. When we launched theLaser Lite, people were sceptical of the robustness of such lightweight tents,seven years later, a single person tent has to be less than 1kg to beconsidered light, and our designs have become the blue print for the competition.’
