Gitzo presents two completely new Series 2 tripods that bring advanced materials, Gitzo technology, performance and quality to our aluminium tripod range. The castings are made of Soulid 238Â®, our unique technical compound 30% lighter than magnesium but just as strong and with great vibration dampening properties. We've incorporated a Basalt centre column (20% lighter than aluminium) for further weight reduction and to improve stabilisation and performance.Most importantly, the aluminium tube used for the legs is also new: 30% lighter than its predecessor, with Anti Leg Rotation system (ALR), 1.2mm wall thickness and brushed matt black finish for improved locking performance and minimised reflectivity.We've also put technology to work on the leg warmers: light, soft and with a new ergonomic design that maximises grip and comfort when the tripod is carried over the shoulder.New aluminium tripods feature the Ground Level Set and removable feet. We hope you'll agree that we've taken a Gitzo Classic and turned it into the most technological, professional aluminium tripod around.Series 2 aluminium tripods come with a smart Gitzo display cleaner convenient anti dust bag for storage and packing. The textile anti dust bag is also an answer to the environmental protection, aiming to reduce the amount of plastic bags that world industry introduces in the market every year.
