About this item

• Gitzo monopods set the standard for professionals and advanced amateurs. The carbon fiber range has been completely revised with new features and materials in order to offer lighter, faster, and more stable products.

Gitzo's Anti Leg Rotation system, and latest generation 6X tubes are now available on all Carbon fiber models. Thanks to ALR, monopods are now incredibly fast to operate, and the height can be easily and precisely adjusted.

Carbon 6X crossed layer tubing makes carbon fiber models surprisingly light, and even more convenient for transportation. All monopods come with a convenient anti-dust bag for storage and packing.

Carbon fiber monopods also feature the innovative G-Lock system that allows faster and stronger locking, and increases leg rigidity by 20%. G-Lock's special design provides a "gravity lock" effect, the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.

Key Features

  • ALR - A new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
  • G-Lock: The Gitzo leg locking system has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
  • Leg Ends: This is the removable rubber feet provided with the monopod. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.
