Scaled for professional equipment, medium format and DSLRs with 300mm lens up to 400mm maximum. High maximum load capacity and outstanding torsion rigidity, Series 3 tripods are available in 3- and 4-section models at standard and eye level heights. Series 3 Carbon 6X tripods are surprisingly lightweight and offer a good safety margin that makes them popular alternatives to series 2 tripods. All series 3 Mountaineer tripods now feature a new third ultra low leg spread to take full advantage of the Ground Level Set and are provided with the new Power Disc for a safer headlock.
This new feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4' - 3/8' bolt and the column hook assembly: Remove column and fix the disk directly to the upper casting using the column hook. No tools needed.
The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved center column for improved stability.
'The new tripod upper disc is called ''Power Disc''. It is made of machined solid aluminum and it now features two locking screws, one to lock the head, the other to safely lock the disc onto the column. The ''Power Disc'' gives a rock solid connection of the whole system for additional safety and stability.'
We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
This feature allows you to independently position the tripod legs in three positions.
Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. Despite the claims of other manufactures, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7μm) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers).
