Gitzo Légende

 

Gitzo has introduced the new Légende range featuring a tripod and backpack that are designed to address the 'throwaway culture' by using sustainable materials and both products having an unlimited warranty. 

With the new range, Gitzo wanted to develop a new standard of products that are better for the photographer, as well as the planet, and so the Légende tripod and bag were born. 

The Légende tripod features a universal Arca-Swiss plate, 100% carbon fiber legs, aluminium leg locks with knurling and rubber inserts and a custom-designed cruelty-free strap. It weighs 1.45kg, has a payload of 8KG, 4 leg sections, and a min/max height of 43/165cm. 

The Légende backpack is constructed from 65% recycled material, features eco-friendly leather and has features such as a tripod stow, side-access, laptop compartment, roll-up side pockets, an RFID shielded pocket for protecting bank cards and easy-to-use fasteners. 

"Made from premium eco-friendly materials and offering free spare parts and an unlimited warranty. Légende offers content creators peace of mind with high-quality gear they can depend on," Gitzo. 

The Légende Tripod and Camera Bag is available today for pre-order on www.indiegogo.com, where it's already reached its target funding goal, and will ship to photographers in June 2021. Early Bird prices start at £487 which gets you the tripod, backpack and a tripod carry strap.

From Gitzo:

Gitzo, world-renowned for over 100 years for setting the industry’s standard for innovative camera accessories, launched today the Légende Tripod and Camera Backpack. Engineered to last a lifetime with low environmental impact, the Légende combo is inspired by the storytelling power of photography: transferred from one generation to another while creating eternal stories. The Légende products are designed to address “throwaway culture” by creating the smallest environmental footprint possible through sustainable materials built for optimal performance throughout its entire life and backed by an unlimited warranty. The Légende Tripod and Camera Bag is available today for pre-order on www.indiegogo.com and will ship to photographers in June 2021.

“As photographers, we photograph the wonders of the world and capture its beauty through our lens, so we wanted to create a product that would reduce its negative impact on the very planet that inspires us,” said Marco Pezzana, CEO of Gitzo. “We set out to create a product that was forever repairable, could withstand any adventure, and would never be thrown away. After months of design and development, we’re very excited to bring Légende to photographers across the globe.”

Unmatched Manufacturing Quality backed by Expert Craftsmanship

Gitzo continues cementing its legacy for manufacturing excellence, innovation and quality that lasts a lifetime as the Légende Tripod and Camera Bag are built to survive all of life’s adventures. Using high-quality materials in its premium design, the Légende products are made to be everlasting as a lifetime companion for generations. The travel tripod is lightweight and features one hundred percent carbon fiber legs for superior strength and stiffness. In addition, the precision aluminum leg locks provide ergonomic control with both knurling and rubber inserts.

 

Unlimited Warranty and Maintenance for the Eternal Story
Those who own the Légende tripod and backpack receive the exclusive benefit of an unlimited warranty, designed to usher in a circular economy that brings an end to the “throwaway culture.” The Légende Tripod is crafted of 170 individual parts that can be repaired instead of having to replace the tripod in case of damage. One hundred percent of the tripod parts are replaceable and seventy percent of those can be done by the owner, so the part will be shipped out directly for simple repair at no extra charge.

Sustainable Materials Reinforce Légende’s Earth-First Approach
Légende pushes to create the smallest environmental footprint possible with the use of sustainable materials that complement the unlimited warranty. One hundred percent of the backpack’s main exterior fabric is made up of recycled polyester and sixty-five percent of the entire bag weight is comprised of recycled fabrics. Additionally, the Eco Leather tripod strap and backpack details are made of cruelty-free, environmental-friendly, and non-toxic synthetic leather. It is light and extremely soft with great performance.

Supporting the Next Generation of Photographers
Légende backers will contribute to the development of Gitzo’s Wild Shots Outreach educational program, which seeks to educate the children bordering the Kruger National Park about conservation and photography. Five percent of campaign sales will go towards this program that will help the students by opening up eco employment opportunities and instilling the value of our protected spaces.
