In this technological process, the fibres of the fabric are impregnated with silicone, making the fabric extremely water-repellent with self-cleaning ability. The so-called lotus blossom effect occurs, where water droplets are repelled from the surface of the fleece, water is not retained in the fabric even when it is imperfectly switched off and quickly drains off in the form of droplets, taking all the dirt with it. Another important effect of siliconisation is a significant increase in the strength, elasticity and tear resistance of the siliconised fibres of the fabric.
At regular intervals, thicker fibers forming a grid are woven transversely and longitudinally into the tropic material, thereby preventing further crack propagation if the fabric is torn.
The construction of tents of the Extreme series is suitable for use in the most difficult expedition conditions thanks to the use of stainless duralloy with high strength (higher than 7001 T6) and high rigidity.Precise design and surface treatment minimize the risk of defects.
Gemini 150 Extreme Snow
The winter version of the Gemini 150 Extreme model with snow collars for especially difficult weather conditions has a rigid rod construction made of Dural alloy 7075 T9, an ultralight Nylon Ripstop fabric on the tropics with UV protection saves weight.
Tropiko is made of Nylon with RipStop treatment and triple double-sided siliconization, guaranteeing a water column of 4,000 mm. The seams of the tropic are not glued, but expansion threads are used, which multiply their volume when in contact with water and thus seal the needle hole.
The floor is made of Nylon with a polyurethane coating with a water column of 10,000 mm.
The rods consist of duralumin segments (7075 T6) with a diameter of 9.5 mm.

The tent is double-layered and consists of an inner tent and an outer layer - the tropic. The inner tent has a rectangular floor plan with two entrances on its longer sides. The outer tent has a hexagon-shaped floor plan, it also has two entrances, in which there are two vestibules, suitable for storing luggage, for example, and is equipped with a snow collar on the lower edge. At both entrances of the tropic, you can decide whether to open the left or right half of the entrance, or both at the same time. You can use the option when cooking, for example, and easily create the necessary leeward.
