Ridiculously small. Unbelievably light.

The further you have to go, the more you will love yourself for bringing the Lofoten along. We designed this multi-award winning ultra lightweight race tent to meet the demands for a reliable shelter, that you can pitch in an instant, carry without noticing and pack in the bottle pockets on your race vest. 


The Lofoten 1 ULW is a 2 layer tent with an incredible race-weight of just 490g. It was born as the lightest tent in the world and has the smallest pack size ever seen. 

This is all down to the state of the art poles with ultra-short segment lengths, enabling an uncompressed pack size of only 11 x 22cm. The fabric is the ultra-thin Nortech T-NY 7D nylon with a weight of only 26g/m2. Despite its delicate soft feel, the 3 layers of silicone coating on each side ensures high durability, water repellency fit for a wet and windy Scandinavian climate and the new Flex-rope Suspension System adds high flexibility and strength.

It goes without saying that the Lofoten is perfect for ultralight bikepacking, trekking or multiday-racing. You will not find better protection lighter and smaller anywhere. Guaranteed.

Oh. Did we forget to mention? The Lofoten 1 can transformed to a 2-person tent by simply replacing the cabin, adding a mere 10 grams to the total weight.


So, are you willing to sacrifice extra space for extra pace?

The story behind the name

Lofoten is an archipelago within the Arctic Circle in the Nordland county of Norway. It experiences one of the world's largest elevated temperature anomalies relative to its high latitude. Lofoten means ”foot of a lynx” probably refering to the shape of the island. The neighbour island Flakstadøya was originally named Vargfót meaning 'the foot of a wolf'.
