The 1st generation t1 tunnel tents were manufactured between 2002-04. The models made were the t1 trek, t1 trek xt, t1 cylq, t1 cylq xt and t1 xpd.

The replacement poles available are the trek specification, but will also fit cylq and xpd versions - the pole lengths are the same across all styles.

Note that the price of £25 is for each pole - if you order two poles for example, the price will be £50.



Care & Maintenance

Poles require little or no maintenance, but there are two points one should be aware of.

1. Throwing a set of folded poles out so they all snap together may look impressive, but this can lead to damage at the ends and ultimately weaken the metal increasing the risk of a J-tear failure (refer to tent knowledge base).

2. Over time, the elastic cord holding all the poles together stretches, and the poles are not held together so tautly. There may come a point in time where the elastic needs to be shortened or replaced (refer to tent knowledge base).
