The Giottos MT-8260 Classic Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs is a sturdy and lightweight affordable tripod. The leg locks follow a special design that makes it sand-proof. The leg sections feature an anti-twist design, and the center column can also be used upside down and reversed.

The leg materials are made of French-made high-strength carbon fiber tubing commonly used in aerospace engineering, and yield exceptional stability for its weight. Carbon fiber materials are very shock and vibration absorbent, but still relatively lightweight. The carbon fiber used for these legs is made from twelve layers, and the spiral grain is visible on the surface, giving it its high-tech look.

The top sections of the legs come protected with neoprene non-slip foam covers, for better handling in extreme weather conditions
