The X2 Storm is a four-pole geodesic tent with an asymmetric shape that increases the porch size and stiffens the rear. This configuration, developed and launched by crux in 2002 and unchanged since, has resulted in a tent that is phenomenally strong and out-performs all others when the weather gets serious. Follow this link here to see how the X2 Storm fares in comparative, independent, wind tests.
Stripped off all unnecessary features the X2 Storm is also remarkably light, and these weight savings allow us to build it from the strongest fabrics and components available (and which are by no means the lightest).
The X2 offers an unparalleled combination of low-weight and outstanding strength.

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