VEO Cincopod tripod

Designed in collaboration with Spanish Vanguard Ambassador Loco Ramos, Vanguard are delighted to announce the launch of the VEO Cincopod tripod. 

As a landscape photographer who works in the harshest environments, Loco needed a tough, all-terrain tripod that goes tall - really, really tall - allowing him to get the perfect angle, even on the steepest slopes. 15 months of research and development went into designing a product that met his exacting needs. 

The VEO Cincopod introduces the concept of five 50mm 5-section legs. The number of legs allow the weight to be spread across five legs, rather than three. This, in combination with the 50mm leg diameter, allows the tripod to handle an outstanding payload of up to 55kg! These legs include 5-easy set leg angles, allowing them to be set for maximum stability on any terrain.

In addition, the VEO Cincopod introduces a solid new 5-section central column that starts at 50mm and tapers down in 5mm increments to 25mm in the final tube. This allows the tripod to hold the 55kg with ease at the lower settings but allows the tripod to extend up to 5 metres and hold 5kg at this maximum setting, ideal for a solid setting on the side of a steeper mountainside.  

Despite the capacity and height, the VEO Cincopod folds to just 55.5cm thanks to the legs that fold up around the central column, so it’s not too bulky. Despite being produced in 5-layered carbon, however, there is a price to be paid for the specification, and the VEO Cincopod weighs in at 5kg, but we’d argue that’s not bad for a 5m  tall tripod with 55kg load capacity!  

"Cinco" is the Spanish word for 5 and hence the VEO Cincopod is named to reflect the Spanish origin of this incredible tripod, alongside the multiples of 5 that recur within the specification. 

Loco is an award-winning landscape photographer. He’s been a Vanguard Ambassador in Spain for over five years, and he’s been instrumental in the creation of the VEO Cincopod 555CB.

Tri is three so it is not a tripod. Quintpod maybe as quintet is 5.

Malc may be right about April 1st. Wink

Well apparently cinc is 5 in spanish. I would imagine this is just a gimmick though as 3 legs has sufficed for donkeys years and if there is any real benefit then we'd all be using them already.
