Laser Photon Tent Pitching Instructions

The Laser Photon was the world’s first sub-900g two-person, double-wall shelter. It also won a Guinness World Record for the world’s lightest tent. The Laser Pulse Ultra 1 is now Terra Nova’s lightest tent to date.

Laser Photon 1

Here’s how to pitch the Laser Photon 1:

  1. Unpack tent and lay out flysheet and inner (the inner tent is already attached to the inside of the flysheet).
  2. Carefully assemble the alloy pole. Ensure all the joints are fully connected.
  3. Slide pole through flysheet pole sleeve, shown as the dotted line on the diagram above (this is located under the black pole sleeve cover).
  4. Insert each pole-end into the corresponding eyelet tab on the hem of the flysheet.
  5. Peg out: in the following order:
    i) Tape attached to each end of the inner.
    ii) Guy rope at each end of the flysheet (the carbon fibre poles should slope out slightly at the top).
    iii) Remaining inner and flysheet tapes and elastics.

The Laser Photon 1 is supplied with:

  • 1 x alloy pole
  • 2 x black carbon fibre poles
  • 12 x titanium 1g pegs

The Laser Photon 1 is no longer available, we recommend the Laser Compact 2.
