The Slingfin Crossbow 2 Four-Season tent combines ultralight design with an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio for year-round camping adventures. The lightest winter-ready tent in the Slingfin range, the Crossbow 2 Four-Season features a breathable nylon inner canopy for added protection while the patented WebTruss and OutRigger attachment means the Crossbow can be optimised to handle harsh weather conditions.
Unique to Slingfin, the WebTruss lets you pitch the CrossBow easily in high winds. Unlike standard pole sleeves, which can lead to pole breakage when pitched in windy conditions, the WebTruss lets you fully set up and tension the pole structure before clipping the tent body to the poles. The WebTruss system effectively holds the pole structure in tension to deliver a greater degree of strength for weight than traditional clip-style tents.
A bow pole in the roof adds extra structural stability while the innovative OutRigger design lets you attach your trekking poles as additional uprights for further stability against harsh winds or snow loading. An internal guyline system can also be utilised with the included cord letting you tension the tent without venturing outside in poor weather.
The freestanding dome is easy to pitch with room enough for two people with sleeping pads and kit. Dual doors offer hassle-free access for both occupants with a vestibule on either side for added storage. The Crossbow features two sets of door panels. An outer ripstop panel protects against dust and spindrift. In milder conditions, the ripstop door can be rolled back to expose the interior mesh door for added ventilation and to protect against bugs. In bug-free conditions, open both doors at the top to get the best ventilation and condensation management.
Slingfin use only the finest grade fabrics and materials in their shelters. A lightweight 15D nylon ripstop flysheet optimises pack-weight and features a silicone-PU treatment to deliver reliable and long-lasting rain protection. A 15D ripstop for the inner canopy features additional DWR. Floor fabric is 20D nylon ripstop with PU treatment to 1200mm HH. Poles are high-quality DAC Featherlite NSL.
Slingfin's versatile design means the poles, WebTruss, and fly are compatible with the CrossBow mesh body (available separately). The Mesh Body offers superb airflow for use in the most humid of conditions. The Crossbow Footprint (available separately) boosts protection to your tent's floor. The tub footprint (sold separately) lets you pitch the Crossbow without an inner canopy in bug-free conditions for an even lighter 2-season shelter. When added to the Crossbow 2 Four-Season, these products combine to turn your CrossBow into a one tent quiver.
The Crossbow 2 Four-Season tent combines a spacious interior and low pack-weight with a highly-stable design and premium fabrics to deliver a capable alpine tent that's perfect for backcountry ski tours, snowshoeing excursions, and fast and light alpine climbing. With its dust-proof canopy fabric and superb wind resistance, the CrossBow Four-Season also makes a great tent for desert camping.
