The Optimus Crux Lite is the minimalist backpackers dream stove, it is powerful, super lightweight and packs up to an incredibly small size. Despite its small size it pumps out a hefty 3000 Watt/10200BTU of heat and the ingenious folding pan supports will handle a wide range of pans and billies. This 'lite' version is 11g lighter than the standard crux. The weight has been shaved off by eliminating the folding mechanism. 

Once you've got this little beauty up and running it is easy to precisely control the flame form a gentle simmer to full on rocket power with the fine control valve and because the large burner head allows a wide displacement of heat there is little or no spot burning.

When you've finished cooking the Crux can be folded and stashed in its protective stuff sack and then you can hide it in the hollow base of a gas cylinder or stuff it in your pocket or webbing pouch. Despite the small size the Crux is powerful and will boil a litre of water in as little as 3 minutes, the burner unit gives 90 minutes burn time on a 220g canister. Nicely crafted, and with a carrying pouch included, this little beauty is powerful and utterly reliable.

  • 11g lighter than standad crux
  • Serrated folding pot supports
  • Precision flame control
  • Large burner head for wide heat displacement
  • High quality construction

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
