The Samaya ASSAUT2 ULTRA tent is the ultimate product for the mountaineer. Thought through and developed with and for Samaya® athletes, this assault tent is the exclusive combination of materials at the cutting edge of today's technology. This makes it an ultra-light and high-performance expedition tent without ever neglecting interior comfort.
Designed to meet the extremely demanding specifications of its athletes, Samaya® is supplied by the best manufacturers in the outdoor world today. Dyneema®, YKK, Easton and Petzl are a guarantee of quality where there is no room for chance.
Intended for use in extremely steep faces, the carbon poles and the main opening of the tent are inserted in the width. In addition, there are two attachment points on the sides to secure your tent if you don't have room to stretch the guy ropes. A Petzl strap at the top of the tent connects the inside and outside of the tent and allows you to keep a lifeline to the wall in case of a landslide.
At only 980 g for two people, the carbon poles guarantee failproof strength and unbeatable lightness of your structure.
The Samaya ASSAUT2 ULTRA tent is made entirely form Dyneema®. The two-layer membrane fabric is the most advanced innovation in the tent world of today.

WALL OF THE SAMAYA ASSAULT2 ULTRA
Depending on the qualities and performance required, composite materials ares adapted to suit the intended use. The walls of the ASSAUT2 ULTRA are thus made of a 2-layer laminated fabric consisting of Dyneema® Composite Fabric and an ePTFE membrane. This piece of Samaya® know-how combines waterproofing, breathability and extreme lightness.
The Dyneema® filaments on the outer part of the fabric are arranged at 90° to each other to lend the fabric their extreme mechanical strength. The ePTFE (Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene) membrane on the inner layer is the result of stretching PTFE, a linear polymer. This microporous structure allows water molecules to pass through in the gaseous state, thus allowing a breathability score of 40,000 g/m²/24h, while not allowing water in the liquid state to penetrate at all with a waterproofness of 20,000 mm. The walls are therefore naturally water-repellent and hydrophobic thanks to the Polyester coating, but also thanks to the very low natural water absorption rate of Dyneema® (water absorption in 24 hours for HMWPE is less than 0.01% - ASTM D570).
Dyneema® composite was chosen by Samaya® for the floors of the ALPINE range and all the assault tents, because of its exceptional properties. It is a laminated textile consisting of UHMWPE fibre mono-filaments and two layers of Mylar®.
Cross hatched Dyneema® filaments lend their mechanical qualities to the fabric and enable it to contain tears in the event of perforation. The two sheets of Mylar® join the fabric together and provide excellent abrasion resistance and an unprecedented waterproof barrier of 20,000 mm. In addition to its performance, this material is very easy to repair, which increases the lifespan of Samaya® products.
