Benro C-068M8 Travel Angel Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs - Supports 13.2 lbs (6kg)
Key Features
  • 4-Leg Sections
  • Magnesium Die-Casting
  • 180° Folding Mechanism
The Benro C-068M8 Travel Angel Carbon Fiber Tripod Legs is a sturdy, high-quality tripod that uses 8 layer, 2nd generation carbon fiber technology for its leg construction. This 8x tubing is 60% stronger overall than conventional carbon fiber tripods. In addition, magnesium is used for die-cast parts. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.

Travel Angel tripods are easy-to-carry so you'll want them with you at all times. Travel Angel's unique 180° fold over design allows them to be folded into a compact package that can easily fit into backpacks or luggage. However, when you need quick setup, excellent maximum height and a rigid, stable support, Benro Travel Angels are impressive performers.

Travel Angel tripods feature individual leg angle adjustments, anti-rotation leg design, a reversible center column with spring loaded weight hook, anti dust and moisture rubber leg lock grips.

Benro C-068M8 Reviews

Great Portability

I purchased this tripod for both portability for travel and weight for hiking. My other tripod is 3.2 lbs aluminum behemoth and 30% larger. I was always struggling with the decision to bring a tripod along on a hike or on the road and this one makes the decision a no brainer. This is the first carbon fiber product I have purchase and it was worth it! I wish the legs had 3 stop positions instead of just 2, but it's not a major issue after 4 miles on the trail.
