Gitzo Redesign Systematic Tripod Range - Gitzo's top of the range modular tripod family has been redesigned.
Gitzo's modular Systematic tripod family has been redesigned to give even higher levels of strength, stability, safety, set-up speed and ease of use. The range has also expanded to include a more transportable tripod called Series 2.
Brand new designThe pronounced triangular shape of the key top casting component distributes weight more efficiently and evenly to the carbon fibre legs. This combined with the innovative bonding and assembly technique means 5 tripods from the series can now carry up to 40kg of camera equipment, double the payload of the previous version.
More secure and easier to useOne-piece, built-in spiked feet provide a secure grip on uneven ground and opening and closing the tripod top casting in order to switch components has been made much easier by a new tool-free ratchet locking lever. The casting allows each tripod to be configured with a geared or sliding centre column, a flat disk, video half-ball adaptor, levelling unit or other specialised centre components.
Safety firstA secondary safety mechanism keeps your camera equipment safe and setting changes to the design of both the tripod top casting and the pull-out angle stops has made setting the tripod's independent leg angles much easier. Gitzo’s G-lock system, used between all leg sections, adds stability to each leg and all the updated Systematic models feature 6X carbon fibre leg tubes.
