The Vargo Triad is an ultralight (1 oz, 30 grams!) “beer can stove” built from titanium. It can burn gels and solid fuels but is most commonly used to burn alcohol. This is a simple and easy-to-use design that is reliable and an essential part of any light weight bikepacking set up. We’ve been building a DIY beer can stove of a similar design for years (see build instructions here) and are stoked to be able to this titanium version. Like all alcohol stoves it’s recommended to use with a windscreen.
