An ideal, fuel-efficient option
for lightweight backpacking, the Optimus Elektra FE Cook System combines
everything you need for backcountry meals into a single unit. The included Crux
Lite stove weighs a mere 2.5 ounces and folds down to fit easily and
efficiently into the Terra Weekend cookware.
Made of durable, stainless materials, the
Crux Lite's 2 inch-diameter burner effectively distributes heat, providing an
even cooking surface for backcountry meals. Depending on altitude and
temperature conditions, this tiny powerhouse can boil a Liter of water in as
little as 3 minutes! An integrated foldable burner control allows you to adjust
the height of the Crux Lite's flame without any fear of burning your hand. And
lighting the stove is a snap with the included Piezo syringe-style igniting
device that allows lighting from the side of the stove for increased safety.
Three ergonomic, serrated pot supports lend
stability and accommodate most backpacking pots, pans and skillets. Folded out
of the way, the pot supports tuck under the head of the burner, reducing the
Crux Lite Piezo, including its burner valve, to only 2.8" x 2.2" x
2.2", which easily fits inside the .95L Elektra pot.
Made of hard-anodized aluminum, the Elektra
FE Cook System consists of a .95L cookpot with a heat exchange ring and a lid
that doubles as a frypan. Measuring just 6.5" x 4.9", the Elektra FE
can enclose the Crux Lite, a fuel canister, the included clip-on windshield and
the Piezo ignitor.
NOTE: The Crux Lite requires the use of a
canister of Optimus Gas (sold separately). A blend of butane, isobutene and
propane, Optimus Gas provides consistent, reliable 3-season backcountry
performance. No priming or pumping is needed when using Optimus Gas canisters.
An 8-ounce canister of Optimus Gas will provide up to 90 minutes of burn time
at the highest maximum output.
