The Gitzo GM5561T Traveler 6x Carbon Fiber Monopod is an extremely sturdy and relatively lightweight and compact monopod. This monopod, when completely folded, stands at a diminutive 16.3", weighs about 1.6 lbs, and might even fit into a larger camera backpack or case. At 61.2" when fully extended, this Traveler model rises as tall as most standard Gitzo monopods.
This Traveler monopod also incorporates Gitzo's revolutionary 6X technology tube, which reduces overall monopods weight up to 25% percent without sacrificing strength or stability.
1mm Gitzo 6X Carbon Fiber Tube
Gitzo was able to develop a six-crossed multilayer carbon fiber 30% lighter than the previous 1.5mm generation. It features the same exceptional performance of stability and vibration absorption and unbeatable quality.
Anti-Leg Rotation (ALR) System
The Anti-Leg Rotation (ALR) system makes it quick and easy to open and close the monopod. Simply turn all of the locking rings at once and the whole leg can be pulled out in seconds.
