Finally, there's also a lightweight two-man adventure race tent, the AR Ultralite which tips the scales at 950 grammes despite being two skin and, says ME, very roomy, so no more sleeping in your race partner's armpit...
The design uses two trekking poles instead of conventional poles, though you'll be able to buy conventional DAC poles as an option. You can also hang the tent between two trees using loops on the flysheet, which will save even more weight, unless you insist on carrying the trees with you.
It's priced at £160 and should have adventure racers as well as lightweight bike campers and the like reaching for their credit cards...
