Carbon Fiber Pegs

(1 customer review)

Description

If a peg has to be ultra-light and very stiff, carbon fiber is a great way to do it. We make sharp aluminum tips and minimalist co-polyester heads to keep the weight at a minimum. The vibrant blue of the shaft will help you avoid losing the stakes or tripping over them. The heads come in different colors including glow-in-the-dark.
We make two diameters of carbon pegs. The Ø7mm version comes in lengths 178mm and a quite long 209mm one – still very light – only 6.7 grams. The small pegs are Ø5mm, 148mm long and weigh the impressive 3.3 grams. This is our all-around option for ultra-light shelters.
The pegs are also available with aluminum caps. These are more robust with a small weight penalty.
If you want to have a cord loop on your pegs to pull them out more easily, we offer them in the custom products section.

 

Specification

Instructions

Always drive the peg at 90° to the guy line and as deep as possible. The line should always be at ground level so that the peg does not have unnecessary leverage. If the line slips on the peg it should stop in the ground – not the stake head. Do not hammer the stakes down – the heads are made of plastic – instead use your big toe (with shoes on :)) to plant them in a controlled manner. Do not pull only on the head to get the stake out of the ground – pinch the shaft and try to gently turn and wiggle it. The paint of the carbon fiber pegs might wear off if used in rocky ground – this, while not really nice, does not hinder the usage.

    Beautiful, lightweight and sturdy pegs that I have now for a while in use. Unfortunately, they are rather less suitable for certain soils, which is why I use these pegs in the mix with something thicker.
    In one I also had to re-glue the head, but that is probably up to me.
    Good price / performance and always pleasant contact with the team, which also responds to extra requests.
