The Gitzo GT-1541T Traveler 6X Carbon Fiber Tripod with G1178M Center Ballhead 1 is a 4-section tripod that uses advanced "Carbon 6X" carbon fiber material for its leg construction. This improved tubing is stronger, lighter and as resistant as its 12 layer predecessor. Carbon "6X" is manufactured using a complex, 3-D process weaving 6 layers of carbon fiber into smooth, solid constructed tubes.
The G1178M Center Ballhead 1 is light enough to travel with, but strong enough to carry loads up to 8.8 lbs. With the G1178M's ergonomic design, it is easy and intuitive to use, while its advanced precision engineering guarantees high performance locking with a wide range of camera equipment.
