Award-winning British tripod manufacturer, 3 Legged Thing, have recently introduced a new monopod range which includes Alan, a rugged carbon fibre monopod suitable for travel; Trent, an ultra-tall Punks monopod; and Docz, a foot stabiliser that works with both monopods.

Alan

The perfect blend of size, weight, and capability, Alan is a monopod built for versatility and resilience. Alan is ideal for travel; retracting to just 45 cm / 17.5 “, with a maximum height of 1.49 m / 58.7 “.

 

Alan and Alan kit

Alan is formed from 8 layers of 100% pure carbon fibre, and aircraft-grade alloys, which makes him strong enough to support almost 100x his own weight. Alan weighs just over 600g / 1.3 lb - light enough to fit into hand luggage.

Alan is ideal for action and sports photography, and to add stability when creating video footage. Alan’s Big Grip provides maximum grip for security and has deep channels designed to disperse moisture.

Alan tri mount plate

Alan features 3 Legged Thing’s patented Tri-Mount plate which includes three hollowed spurs for the attachment of accessories. Both ends of the monopod feature dual 1/4”-20 and 3/8”-16 threads for attachment of Docz, footwear or an AirHed on top.

 

Trent

Punks monopod Trent’s full extended height is over 2 m (80”) making him one of the tallest monopods in the world today. Trent is made from aircraft grade magnesium alloy which makes him strong vertically, and capable of lateral loads, which make it ideal for use as a camera or microphone boom. Trent weighs just over 630 g, and his maximum load capability is 30 kg / 66 lb giving him a load-to-weight ratio of 50:1.

 

Trent and trent kit

Trent features 3 Legged Thing’s unique Bubble Grip technology on the leg locks and column grip. This gives users improved leverage and maximum grip in inclement weather conditions. Like Alan, Trent also has dual 1/4“-20 and 3/8”-16 threads at each end.

Docz

Docz is a rugged foot stabiliser with a 30 cm / 12 “ base. It’s designed to add stability to monopods. It has an alloy base construction with a rugged ABS top cover, and a rubber boot adjuster below.

3 Legged Thing Docz

Docz adds a stable base to a monopod with no flexing. The boot adjuster controls the friction and tension on Docz’ ball mount, enabling an ultra smooth motion for action and sports photography. The ball mount has a 3/8”-16 thread and can be locked upright for extra stability.

Docz legs can be folded upwards, making it more compact for transportation.

 

Alan and Trent are each available separately, or in kits with Docz with the following suggested retail prices:

Alan - £129.99 / $149.99

Alan Kit (Alan + Docz) - £169.99 / $199.99

Trent - £69.99 / $79.99

Trent Kit (Trent + Docz) - £109.99 / $129.99

Docz - £49.99 / $59.99
