SLIK PRO Tripod

 

Slik has launched a new range of carbon fibre tripods in the UK and Ireland with suggested retail prices ranging from £219 to £299 for the tripod legs and £85 to £90 for the heads. 


 

Light-weight, rigid carbon fibre tripods

All 4 models in the PRO CF range use 8-layer carbon fibre legs, which are bonded and sealed in a high-pressure furnace. This allows them to be extremely strong, light-weight and rigid.

There is a choice of 4 or 5-section telescopic legs, with 3 increasing leg diameters.

The PRO CF-635 tripod legs pack down to just 37cm, extend to a very useful 159cm (without head) and accommodate a 3kg load. Whereas the PRO CF-834 model, with the largest legs in the range, measures 48cm when folded and has a maximum extended height of 165cm (without head), it will easily support a 7kg load.

All 4 models have 3-step, variable-angle legs, with twist-locks and an anti-rotation-system which provides fast setup. The splittable centre-column allows near-ground shooting and incorporates a spring-loaded hook to hold a weight (such as a camera bag), providing extra stability when shooting in very windy conditions.

The two new Pro-Ball-Heads (PBH-535AS and PBH 635AS) are designed to match the PRO CF tripod legs and both incorporate the new ‘Cam-Lock’ Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release system that allows a camera to be attached or detached from the head, without the need to slide the plate it in or out of the groove. Each head incorporates 3 separate knobs for locking, panning and friction control. They are designed to accommodate Pro DSLR camera systems weighing up to 5kg and 6kg respectively.

They are available now in the UK through Intro2020.
