Notes:
• Additional Poles are non FlashFrame poles. IE. Poles to create the vestibule / porch area. The FlashFrame does the rest. Additional Poles are supplied.
• Berth refers to maximum number of people to sleep within the tent. The maximum capacity may be cosy subject to the size and frame of the camper(s) and gear stowed.
• CPAI-84 Fire Retardant fabric does not mean the tent is fireproof. Fabric will still burn. Take caution when camping, not to use heat or flammable sources in or around your tent.
• Air Vents help increase air flow into the tent and sleeping area. Keeping the air vents open will help reduce condensation. Closing the vents will help trap some of the warmer moist air but will increase condensation.

Construction + Materials

New Season. New Standards. The new 2018 Slumit CUB 2 (2 Berth) comes packed with design and performance tweaks.

 

The CUB 2 is a high spec two layer tent with a waterproof and flame retardant (to CPAI-84) outer rainfly and breathable inner sleeping area. The rain-fly is waterproofed to a high 3000mm Hydrostatic Head (over 2.5x the British Standard for fabric to be deemed water repellant). The outer rain-fly is now flame retardant to CPAI-84 standard* (new for 2018).

 

This 3 season camping tent can be pitched (and packed) faster than an equivalent pole and sleeve tent thanks to the innovative all-in-one FlashFrame™ Pitch and Pack System.

 

The FlashFrame™ is an exoskeleton frame system which enables the user to quickly pitch the inner and outer layers together, at the same time, in seconds. So no more pitching the inner tent first and then the outer, which can be time consuming and especially problematic during wet conditions. The FlashFrame™ solves this problem!

 

The CUB 2 offers a self contained bug-free sleeping area (approx 200x135cm) suitable for 1-2 persons, with a separate compact porch area suitable for campers needing sheltered storage for muddy boots and additional gear. The internal Loft Storage Net and Side Storage Pockets (max load 2kg) are ideal for storing mobile phones, keys or other light weight accessories for easy access.

 

The Slumit CUB 2 FlashFrame™ tent is a perfect camping solution for long weekend breaks and festivals.

 

Recommended accessories (subject to availability):

 

FOOTPRINT GROUNDSHEET PROTECTOR- Increase the life of your tent and protect the underside of your integrated groundsheet from abrasion and general wear and tear by using a compatible FootPrint GroundProtector. Using a FootPrint Ground Protector helps increase ground insulation too. The FootPrint GroundProtector is tailored 10cm smaller than the integrated groundsheet to stop rain water channeling between the two layers.

 

CANOPY POLE SET – Transform your outer front door into a canopy awning using the CANOPY POLE SET. Should be used on a still and ideally a dry day. Comes complete with foldable powder coated steel poles, guy ropes and pegs.

 

EXTRA GUY KIT – Reinforce your CUB tent using the Extra Guy Kit. Complete with 4 velcro banded guy ropes and heavy duty ground stakes. Fasten the velcro banded webbing to your FlashFrame system to offer increased stability and protection during windier conditions. Highly recommended if you are travelling away, or as a precaution should you experience unexpected inclement and breezier weather conditions. Ensure your tent is fully guyed out even on a still day.

 

SAFETY NOTICE: Camping in windy conditions is not recommended and should be avoided for safety reasons. Check the recommended usage guidelines in the instructions. Always check wind and gust strength forecasts prior to your excursion. Winds may appear calm but gust strength may be very high. Wind and gusts can be extremely destructive and can damage temporary shelters such as tents and awnings not covered under warranty.

 

*FIRE SAFETY NOTICE: A flame retardant fabric does not certify that the fabric or tent is fire proof. Fabric will still burn if exposed to a naked flame. Flame retardant fabrics will only reduce the rate in which fabric will ignite and burn. Great care should always be taken when camping. Keep heat sources away from the tent. In the event of a fire, evacuate the tent immediately. Specialist coatings (waterproofing and flame retardancy) will diminish over time and with usage.

    Absolutely brilliant tent, bought for a motorcycle trip. Small pack size and literally takes 20 seconds to put up (including pegging out). Good quality with a built in ground sheet, very roomy for a two man tent. Two of the guys coming on the trip who saw how easy it was to set up have since bought themselves one each. Would definitely reccomend.

    As a keen motorcycle camping enthusiast, I have tried many different tents over the years, but the CUB2 definitely comes out on top (especially for its ease of use, quick setup, and size). The tent when packed away is a good practical size for my motorbike pillion seat, and at a practical weight of just 3.5 kg, you hardly notice it on the bike. The specification of the tent is comfortable, practical and incredibly easy to pitch. As a motorcyclist, you tend to experience a lot of fatigue from long distance riding, and it’s nice to know that within a minute of parking the motorbike, the tent is pitched and instantly protecting me from the elements. The tent is double skinned, with multi-pockets on the inside, it has a decent sized porch area, a lantern hook, and even a roof shelf. The main thing that attracts me to this particular company, is their patented Flashframe technology. This in simple terms is a system that allows you to take the tent out of the bag, unfold the legs, lift up the centre and click the two sections together, allowing the frame to expand and lock in to place. It is literally pitched in ten seconds, once it’s out the bag and spread on the floor. You just lift up and connect and lock. I was so impressed by the simplicity of this system, that after purchasing this model a couple years ago, I made a video and posted it to YouTube, solely to demonstrate its speed and simplicity to erect. I have now got my hands on the newer CUB2, which has been tweaked and upgraded. The tent is more than just a novelty, it will comfortably hold 2 people and basic luggage, or one person and their entire months camping arsenal. The outer rain fly is a very reassuring 3000 MMHH, which means you won’t have to worry about rain making its way in through most of the seasons. The floor is a bathtub style groundsheet, so protects you in long wet grass. Although this tent is very stable with the guy ropes attached, I now also have the extra guy support kit and peg set, which Slumit claims will offer even more support in higher winds. It is probably not needed for normal conditions, but I would happily ride out a storm with this tent. I hope you found this review helpful, and you can watch a video of me pitching the tent here on MOTORBIKEWAY: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSXpQGpjo7M

    Scootering classics: Long Term Test – Slumit Cub II.
    It’s easy to quote a press release or live with a tent for one or two nights but how does the Slumit Cub II fare under prolonged use? After six months I’m very impressed. Erecting the tent is similar to putting up an umbrella — simply spread out the tents ‘legs’, lift the centre pole and simply click into place. I found that as long as care is taken to align its joints, the tent can be up or down in about the time it takes to unload. Once packed away the tent is slightly narrower than a scooter headset which is an important consideration if you want to avoid humiliation while filtering! Inside the condensation reducing twin-skin construction there’s just room for an inflatable double mattress and there are plenty of storage pouches. The loft net is particularly useful, being ideal for keeping fragile items like spectacles out of harm’s way.

    If your looking for a great tent for your next camping trip I highly recommend the Slumit Cub 2. I am currently starting my third month on the road motocamping across the US on a National Parks tour. So far I have visited 8 states; 19 National Parks and the cub 2 has held up surprisingly well. It goes up and is ready to use really quick. I have had good weather most of the trip and the one instance when it was raining I was able to set up the tent, get inside and wait out the worst of the rain. Besides the quick set up the little things mean a lot. For instance the small pockets on the inside perimeter of the tent make it handy to stow last minute items before going to sleep and the hooks for hanging lamps are handy. Overall I’d rate the tent 4.5 stars! The only knock being for a sturdier carrying bag, but then I’m on a bike and the tent gets packed about every other day, so the bag gets quite a bit of abuse.
    Overall a great tent, one I’d surely recommend!

    Got a Cub from a recommendation from a mate in my Harley Riders club who has a Gobi. I didn’t want as big a tent as that but the Cub has plenty room. Goes up in minutes and has no rods to feed thro. Best tent I’ve had.

    Cub II. Does what it says on the tin. Brilliant! Never been impressed with pop up tents, until now! As far as the tent goes it does everything stated really well with all guides and literature easy to follow. It takes me less than 30 seconds to put the tent up with one or two practices (from bag to pitched). I have used it once during some recent fine weather and found pitching, packing and using the tent really practical and functional. My 13 year old is going to be using the tent for a surfing week soon and he only put the tent up twice on his own before pichinging it perfectly in seconds. Not sure how the tent will stand up to really bad weather (not tested yet) but after one use i am confidant. As far as customer service etc from Slumit, I cannot fault them, I haven’t had any issues but have been regularly informed on what to do if…….. etc. Thank you slumit, I’m really impressed with your product.

    A Good Buy. The tent is amazingly sophisticated and simple use. The materials are very light and strong. You can already guess I am a fan. Your service and the quality of the product are a credit to your company.

    Good quality however….The netting isnt fine enough to stop midges and being from Scotland its pretty much useless to me love the tent design and quality just a shame about the netting ill keep it for winter 🙂

    Slumit’s Response: Thanks for your feedback on the 2016 model. Pre 2018 tent models were supplied with standard mosquito mesh – the same mesh thickness and denier found on the vast majority of general camping tents on the market. Field tested throughout the UK and Europe (in all seasons) and have proved to keep midgies at bay. New 2018 models offer an even finer mesh (finest money can buy – as found on high altitude tents), along with other design tweaks and improvements. Hope this reassures and we’re happy to answer any questions. Thank you for your support.
