The new Terra Nova Laser Photon Elite is the lightest tent commercially available. Breaking new ground for lightweight tents Terra Nova have created the definitive racing tent for Adventure Racing, Mountain Marathons, and other short duration uses.
With a packed weight of just 765g the Laser Photon Elite beats all competition, in the lightweight tents, hands down. With the same shape and dimensions of the Laser Competition user comfort is not compromised and the Laser Photon will still sleep two racers and one person in comfort.

New fabrics and stakes create the bulk of the weight saving after painstaking research by Terra Nova. The titanium stakes weighs just 1g each and are exclusively available on the Laser Photon.

The Laser Photon Elite features a silicon coated groundsheet, which allows lighter weight fabrics to be used and still maintain water repellant performance.

The Laser Photon pitches flysheet first and the inner can be left connected, so it is exceptionally quick to erect. The transverse vestibule creates more usable space than a longitudinal vestibule and provides excellent shelter from the wind as well as a large entrance.

Dac ultralight pole is both lightweight and strong. Reflective guy line ropes and reflective trim on poles sleeve aids in easy identification.

Terra Nova Laser Photon 1 - first impressions October 13, 2011
Reviewer: Mac Kirby from Canberra, Australia  
I have only just received the tent, and put it up in the back yard - no serious use yet. First impressions: very light - the main reason I bought it; easy to pitch, and pitches in one (fly and inner together), a bonus in rain; adequate but not generous in height, and a little low over the head when lying down; plenty of room for one; adequate vestibule; well thought out ventilation (the fly can be raised in places to create air through-flow); an over-riding impression of having been designed by someone who really uses and knows lightweight tents. I am intrigued by the tiny pegs ("toothpicks", as I've seen them referred to). They were OK in the back yard, but I would be nervous in wind; they are a candidate for replacement with something more robust. I will also consider fitting guys to the main hoop pole sleeve.
