Ultralight Evolution: Helinox Introduces the Chair Zero High-Back

March 29, 2022

Keep the Weight Down and the Comfort Up with the Ultimate Outdoor Chair

BERKELEY, Calif. /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – Helinox, the brand that created the category of lightweight, portable furniture, today introduces the Chair Zero High-Back, a new ultralight silhouette that weighs in at a mere 1 lb 8 oz while providing a taller, sturdier back for neck and shoulder comfort. Nothing on the market delivers Chair Zero High-Back’s combination of ultralight design, exceptional strength, ease of set-up, and supportive comfort – all in a package that fits right in your pack.

In 2017, Helinox introduced the Chair Zero, a revolutionary, ultra-lightweight design that set the standard for backpacking chairs. Due to its unmatched combination of comfort, packability, durability and ease of setup / stow, Chair Zero is one of Helinox’s most popular styles, and is a staple with backpackers, ADV riders, kayakers, fishermen, overlanding enthusiasts and anyone who wants comfort while also balancing limited space and weight considerations.

Every aspect of the new Chair Zero High-Back is engineered for lightness, durability, strength and comfort. The frame is 7000 series aluminum made from DAC’s proprietary TH72M alloy, which is prized for its incredible and unmatched strength-to-weight ratio and depended on by the world’s top tent makers. Each pole is anodized for extra strength, and engineered and designed for its intended purpose – to support the full weight of sitting. Helinox has exclusive rights to use DAC alloy for outdoor furniture and accessories.

For the seat of the Chair Zero High-Back, Helinox uses a light, durable 100D polyester and weaves in Aramid – a military-grade fiber known for its exceptional strength – to create a light, durable ripstop fabric that stands up to sun, grime, granite, and years of sitting.

Finally, the hubs and joining components of the Chair Zero High-Back are molded with Helinox’s proprietary high-strength nylon resin, engineered for precise, solid and secure pole attachments.

“The Chair Zero and now the Chair Zero High-Back are the pinnacle of comfort for long hauls to remote locations,” said Azul Couzens, VP of Sales and Marketing, Helinox USA. “When you’re picking and choosing through every ounce to take along – what fits and what doesn’t – the Chair Zero High-Back packs a huge amount of comfort for minimal weight.”

The new Chair Zero High-Back is available in Black and Gray colorways at select retailers and online at: helinox.com/collections/chair-zero. MSRP: $169.95
