Dedicated Speed Rings are designed primarily for smaller, open-faced quartz instruments. These Speed Rings allow you to work with single or multiple sources within a Lightbank, which enables you to change the intensity of your source instantly.
The Speed Rings are the hub of the Chimera Lightbank system. These Speed Rings enable you to mount any Chimera Lightbank to just about any size or type of strobe available. Machined 6061 - T6 aluminum or injection molded, 33% glass-filled nylon components ensure that Chimera's Rings will stand up to the daily heat and tension of the working studio. Precision crafted inserts guarantee a positive connection to every strobe head.
These Speed Rings (can be used singly or they can be ganged to form a double or triple head assembly. These various stand adapters, described in accessories, will hold your single or multiple Speed Ring set-ups in place every time. Use the Chimera Camera Bracket to connect your portable strobe and Mini Bank to the camera. A further option is using up to four strobes with our 9011 ring and a Quartz Bank.
There are two Speed Ring sizes: regular (6.0 aluminum and 6.2 nylon), and large (7-3 aluminum and 7.5 nylon). Because of this size difference, two pole lengths are also available (regular and short) to assure a proper fit of the Lightbank skin.
Chimera Speed Rings have the design, versatility and craftsmanship which make the Chimera system the choice of professionals.
