The Trek-Tech TrekPod XL is the carbon-fiber version of the popular TrekPod Go, and in addition also includes the heavy-duty MagMount Pro magnetic ballhead. The TrekPod is a unique combination of a lightweight, height-adjustable walking/hiking staff, with a fully integrated tripod for cameras, optical devices and almost any other tripod mountable device such as photo lights, microphones, etc.
Simply unfasten the touch-fastener loop at the bottom of the TrekPod to extend the three short legs for the tripod mode. With the legs extended, the TrekPod is now a stable but lightweight tripod. In addition, the TrekPod is a height-adjustable, fully functional monopod. The TrekPod converts between all three functions in just seconds. The product incorporates an innovative, quick-release, mount-demount system called the MagMount Pro.
The MagMount Pro is a magnetic camera quick-release ballhead. It provides for the instant attachment of almost any camera, spotting scope, or other device that is mounted via the industry standard 1/4"-20 threaded mounting system. It also features the TrekLock, which is an integrated locking clip, for added locking safety. It supports anything with up to a maximum weight of 13.5 lbs.
