The Chair One frame is built with ultra-lightweight and exceptionally strong DAC aluminium alloy poles. This advanced pole technology was developed for expedition-level backpacking tents and is trusted and relied on by the world’s most discerning adventurers. Helinox is the only furniture brand to use DAC aluminum alloy poles. Hubs and joining components are moulded using a high-strength nylon resin that’s carefully engineered to achieve precise, solid, secure pole attachments.
