The t30 hyper & t30 hyper xt are tunnel tents with 2 and 3 poles respectively. These were launched in 2013 and are current styles.
There are two different pole specifications. Tents made in 2013 & 3014 have Yunan poles. All tents manufactured after this date have DAC poles. The poles have identifying brand markings on the end sections.
Please check your pole against the drawings above and technical specifications below before ordering. All dimensions are given in mm.
Please note that the price of the Yunan poles is £25 and for the DAC poles is £30 (VAT included), plus delivery charge. So, two poles, for example, will cost £50 (Yunan) and £60 (DAC) etc.
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).
The current pole specification is DAC 9.35 mm Featherlite. (Lengths are given in mm).
Front pole: 2950 mm, colour grey
Rear pole: 2600 mm, colour gold
Porch pole: 2550 mm, colour black
The original pole specification was Yunan 9.50 mm Ultralite with Unit Connectors. (Lengths are given in mm).
Front pole: 2820 mm, colour grey
Rear pole: 2550 mm, colour gold
Porch pole: 2360 mm, colour black
