Product description

Helsport's lightest tent with a total weight of 1 kg.

This tent has always been dedicated to reducing weight. Every part of the design has been considered with that in mind. This year we added another challenge: to improve the usability of the tent so that it is not only light, but also easier to pitch and more comfortable to use. The pole configuration has been changed to increase internal volume without making the tent any longer. It also takes half as long to pitch - we know, because we timed it!

The new Ringstind Superlight 1 is a compact, yet comfortable and functional tent that is easy to pitch yet surprisingly stable in windy conditions.

The Ringstind Superlight 2 provides additional width and two completely separate doors and vestibules for greater comfort.

The best part is that we’ve been able to add all these details and extra features and yet reduce the weight even further.
  • Lightweight fabrics and components
  • Lightweight inner tent fabric with mosquito net and excellent breathability
  • Pole cups make the tent fast and easy to pitch
  • The Helsport AirFlow II® ventilation system ensures more fresh air, better quality sleep and increased air circulation which reduces condensation
  • Unique internal pole channel system that provides better wind stability and less vibration/noise inwindy conditions
  • Internal storage pockets

The tent is only available for a one-night trip, here are some considerations: 1.) Quick and easy to set up, only 5 wedges are needed if it is not very windy. 2.) Sufficient space for one (170 cm) hiker and equipment. 3.) A two-layer, inner tent can be removed if necessary, for example to wipe condensation off the outer tent. 4.) High-quality fabrics, the material of the outdoor tent feels pretty similar to the Kerlon 1000 of Hilleberg, which I own in Tarp 5. 5.) Despite their light weight, they hold Y-wedges well. 6.) Comes with repair needs (repair sleeve, spare arc piece, pieces of fabric, needle and threads). 7.) The packing bag is large enough to accommodate not only the tent but also the base fabric to be purchased separately. 8.) The indoor tent is an exciting model for the 3.5-season, with clean mesh fabric only where the air circulates in the tent. The structure reduces tonnage but may make the tent hot in warmer weather. 9.) Ventilating the tent feels like a moderate power, but there is some condensation. This is hard for me to compare to other tents because it depends so much on the conditions. After several hours of rain, the entire inside of the tent was covered with condensation, so I removed and packed the tent separately. 10.) The fabric of the outdoor tent (silnylon) stretches in longer rain (this is what happened to me). The tent will then have to be tightened. Stretching is a property of silnylon, I don’t read it as a fault, but this is good to know. 11.) There is no adjustment at the angle attachment points. If the terrain is really rocky, you may not be able to move the wedges to tighten the tent fabric in the longer rain. In this case, the outdoor tent may touch the indoor tent and wet it. I think this is the biggest fault of the tent. I fixed this bug by adding the adjustable, about 30-cent strings to the corners after the trip itself. However, the rear corner and the "rear brush" of the tent can be tightened with the fastening cord in the middle of the back. 12.) The base fabric of the inner tent is only 40 denier fabric. I found one pine needle in the base fabric at home that had gone through the fabric. A thicker, 90 denier fabric would hardly have increased the weight of the tent tremendously, but would be much more durable than the one now in use. Although I’m a gram file, I get a base fabric for my tent (200 grams) because I think the extra weight will pay for itself as a better durability for the base. 13.) Price; not quite Hilleberg level, but expensive still. On the other hand, I believe the tent will serve for a long time Despite minor shortcomings, I give the tent five stars at this point because halves cannot be given. In halves, this would be 4.5. The lack of adjustment is easily remedied with a pair of strings and tensioners, and the thinness of the bottom in such light tents is a feature rather than a fault, as compared to Gossamer Gear’s The One, which has a floor of 10 denier. I will update the review if anything else occurs.

The best thing about the tent is its lightness. Setting up the tent is easy by yourself. It took the wind well in the week's open tundra, when you put your foot in the direction of the wind. The fastening seams of the tent cords and other seams held up well when the tent was set up in pink. The rain has not come inside so far. In summer, with warmer weather, I needed more ventilation. As a 160 cm person, I can sit in the tent, even though the tent is very low. For a taller person, this makes it tight. You should have a footprint (plastic is also enough), the base fabric is thin. The purchase was positive, I dare to take the tent with me on a longer trip. The downside is poor ventilation (it would be good to be able to lift the tent skirts off the ground) and the price. Also in the mood for cooking, so-called it is not possible to cover the tent.
