The X1 Strike is a single-skin tent using our new X-tex fabric. We are hesitant to call the X-tex fabric revolutionary – it still has limitations – but it does present significant improvements and advantages over the existing PTFE-type breathable membrane fabrics that are currently used. You can read the technical explanation here.

The Strike has the same diagonal pole arrangement as the X1 Raid, and these are inserted through external pole sleeves, before a third pole, positioned internally, is added to create significantly more space at the head of the tent. The door also becomes much easier through which to enter or exit. As on all the X1 models, the guy points loop around the poles themselves taking stress directly off the seams.

Third pole for extra headroom

Care & Maintenance

Storage
Always ensure the tent is completely dry after a trip before packing it away for any length of time.

Flysheet cleaning
The best way to do this is simply to pitch the tent and wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Flysheets can get stains and mildew (from being stored in a damp condition) – once these occur, they are almost impossible to remove. Never machine wash.

Groundsheet cleaning
As with the flysheet, wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Never machine wash – this will cause the PU coating to delaminate.

Poles
After time, the elastic in the poles may lose its stretch, and the poles not fold away. It is possible to remove a pole foot at one end (these screw out), untie the elastic and pull it through until there is sufficient tension. Retie it to the pole foot, cut off the elastic and screw the pole foot back in. Do not let go of the elastic or you will find yourself re-threading all the sections!

Flysheet seams
Although the integrity of the seams is in most cases very good, occasionally there is insufficient tension in the stitching, which means some water can seep in. This can be rectified by applying seam-sealant. The area most susceptible to this is around the vent panels (as sewing three panels together is more difficult that a straight seam joining just two panels). (This does not apply to the X1 single-skin tents).
