The X2 Shadow SL is the superlight version of the X2 Shadow. The SL models represent our new signature “expedition” range – available only in gold with a big logo printed on the side. The Shadow SL uses a lighter version of our X-tex fabric on the canopy, as well as a lighter groundsheet fabric. We only recommend the SL if weight is of absolute importance – for a saving of 500 g, you get a tent that will only last half as long as the standard model. Nonetheless, weighing under 2.4 kg, there is no all-weather, all-season tent as light or as spacious as the X2 Shadow SL.

Care & Maintenance

Always ensure your tent is completely dry after a trip before packing it away for any length of time. Tents can get stains and mildew if stored in a damp condition – and once these occur, they are almost impossible to remove.

The best way to clean your X1 Raid is simply to pitch the tent and wipe down with a cloth using a warm water and detergent mix. Never machine wash.

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

Over time, the elastic cord inside the poles may lose its stretch. In this case, unscrew the pole foot at one end, untie the elastic and pull it through until there is sufficient tension. Retie it to the pole foot, cut off the excess elastic and screw the pole foot back in. Don't let go of the elastic or you will find yourself re-threading all the sections!
