GitzoGitzo aluminium tripods : Gitzo, revered throughout the world for its precision and quality in bringing new products to market for the professional photo and video markets, is introducing two entirely new and innovative aluminum Series 2 tripods that combine the most advanced materials and performance with Gitzo quality. These two tripods revamp the traditional - and successful - Gitzo aluminum range with a new concept of aluminum tripods. While competitors are using 0.8 or 1.00 mm tubes to reduce weight, Gitzo is launching new 1.2 mm wall tubes for maximum rigidity and stability, while dramatically reducing the weight of other components in order to achieve exceptionally strong and yet extremely light aluminium tripods.
Gitzo aluminium tripodsGitzo Soulid 238 casting technology
Gitzo’s new Soulid 238 upper casting technology is featured in the new aluminium tripods and uses a unique compound 30 percent lighter than traditional aluminum yet as strong as magnesium. The unique upper casting allows for an impressive 60 percent weight reduction over aluminum and introduces a new spring operated leg opening control button, allowing for quicker operation of the tripod legs. “Gitzo has always had a different approach to problems and ways to solve them,” says Luca Alessandrini. “We have followed this approach for 90 years and we still believe this is the right way to do things.” He continues, “In addition to a neverending quest for new technologies and materials, we take great pride in working with top professional photographers to develop the best and most reliable working tools.

Gitzo tripods aluminium - Anti Leg Rotation
The new aluminium tripods are the most clear example of this unique style and, more importantly, they enable us to offer Gitzo’s top technology and quality at a more competitive price.” The new aluminum tubes have a matte black brushed finish for reduced light reflection and increased leg locking efficiency. As on the carbon 6X and Basalt tripods, the new aluminum line features the Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system. ALR allows for an ultra-fast and smooth setup. Just loosen all twist locks and pull down the leg before tightening them, making setup a mere 15 seconds.

light weighted tripods - basalt center column
For weight reduction and increased performance, Gitzo has used the best of its technology for the center column, leg warmers and a revolutionary upper casting. The rapid center column is made of basalt, not aluminum, for increased vibration absorption and dramatic weight reduction. The leg warmers have been designed from a new material that allows for a 50 percent weight reduction and advanced ergonomics for ease of use, either when carried on the shoulder or when gripping the upper leg. The tripods also offer a new ground level feature - an example of Gitzo’s style.

Gitzo aluminium tripods - Shooting angles
The center column in removable and the upper disc can be directly applied to the casting and locked into position. With only a few seconds of set up, this clever built-in solution dramatically increases the tripods’ flexibility, allowing for ultra-low shooting angles, weight reduction and increased stability. Also featured on the updated line are removable feet for fitting new worn out rubber feet, spike feet or other accessories.
