sea to summit ground tent
Alto Tent

Sea to Summit, the globally recognized adventure equipment brand headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, is pleased to announce the company’s entry into technical backcountry tents. Following more than three years of rigorous research and design, Sea to Summit will be releasing two lightweight tent models, the Alto and the Telos, along with an expansive line of accessories for Spring 2021.

With 30-years of rich history in product innovation and engineering, Sea to Summit is excited to, once again, introduce genre-shifting technology with the release of the Alto and Telos tents. In partnership with Jake Lah, Founder and Head of Design at DAC, the world’s foremost tent pole manufacturer, the tents will feature revolutionary Tension RidgeTM pole construction, alleviating two common pain points of modern tents: liveable space and ventilation. The Tension RidgeTM architecture allows for an inverted pole design that angles up to achieve unrivaled internal height, ceiling ventilation, high vertical walls to accommodate modern, thicker sleeping mats and pillows, and a more accessible dry entry/exit. The result is a roomy experience with a superior space-to-weight ratio that outperforms any other tent in its class.

“While the solution was simple, engineering the Tension RidgeTM presented significant challenges,” explained Jake Lah, an expert of modern tent architecture. “By inverting the angle of the brow pole, we achieve best-in-class interior space and ventilation, without adding weight or bulk to the tent.”
