1 legged things

3 Legged Thing have announced two new monopods, which they are calling the 1 Legged Thing. 

The two new monopods are Alan, a rugged carbon fibre professional monopod; Trent, an ultra-tall Punks monopod; and Docz; a foot stabiliser that works with both monopods, and which is also available separately.

Ideal for action and sports photography and to add stability when creating video footage, Alan has a stored height of 45 cm / 17.5 ”, and is compact enough for transportation in hand luggage. Alan extends to a maximum height of 1.49 m / 58.7 ”. Formed from 8 layers of 100% pure carbon fibre and aircraft-grade alloys, ensuring he is both light and incredibly strong, Alan can support a maximum load of 60 kg / 132 lb – almost 100x his own weight!

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

Both monopods have 1/4”-20 and 3/8”-16 threads at either end allowing for use with a variety of accessories. 

Docz is a rugged foot stabiliser with a 30 cm /12 “ base, designed specifically to add stability to monopods. With an alloy base construction, a rugged ABS top cover and rubber boot adjuster, Docz adds a stable, solid base for monopods with no flexing. The rubber adjuster controls the friction and tension settings 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 also be locked upright for extra stability.

Alan, Trent and Docz will each be available separately, as well as in kits with the following suggested retail pricing:

  • Alan - £129.99 / $149.99
  • Alan Kit (Alan + Docz) - £169.99 / $199.99
  • Trent - £109.99 / $79.99
  • Trent Kit (Trent + Docz) - £109.99 / $129.99
  • Docz - £49.99 / $59.99

They will all be released on 1 August 2018 and can be pre-ordered now.
