About this item

• Systematic tripods are the strongest and most stable available, and they also offer unsurpassed flexibility. This modular system can be quickly transformed between different configurations depending on the specific needs of a shoot. Choosing the carbon fiber version means, you always have the ideal base model for both indoor and outdoor shooting.
• The new generation of Systematic tripods feature Gitzo Carbon 6X tubing, Anti Leg Rotation system, and the new G-Lock locking system. Thanks to these innovations, tripods are now lighter, faster to operate, and sturdier than ever. Carbon 6X Systematic tripods come with a convenient anti-dust bag for storage and packing.
• Systematic tripods have a unique ultra-wide top platform that guarantees an incredibly stable base for any professional high performance equipment. This platform can be removed and replaced with other accessories, making this a fully customizable system. All Systematic tripods are supplied with a flat top plate.
• A Systematic tripod can quickly be transformed into a professional video support by means of 75 mm and 100 mm half ball adapters. Systematic tripods can be fitted with large diameter rapid or geared center columns. Generous diameters maintain system stability at any height.
• Systematic tripods can also fit a high performance leveling base with 15 degree of tilt movement around a large half ball with an ultra wide platform. Ideal for leveling flat-based fluid heads, it can also be used as a heavy duty low profile head for medium format cameras and other heavy equipment.
• This is the strongest and most accurate tripod in the world, recommended for medium and large format or DSLRs with 400 mm and longer lenses. Exceptionally rigid and resistant to torsion, and thanks to the new Carbon 6X ALR tube it is surprisingly light and fast to operate.

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 tripod. This feature allows you to easily change worn out rubber feet or to fit other accessories, such as spiked feet or snow/sand shoes.
