Overview
  • 1Description

The 3 Legged Thing X2.1a Dave Aluminum Alloy Tripod with AirHed 2 Ball Head (Black) is a stylish and extremely compact travel tripod system that features a removable, reversible center column. With the ball head attached to the tripod, this column helps the system extend to a maximum height of 64.56" and retract to a very small 15.74" folded length. Fitting in most airline carry-on bags, the X2.1a Dave system is a supremely versatile professional camera support.

The X2.1a Dave's legs are composed of aircraft-grade T6061 aluminum alloy for a supreme balance of light weight, sturdiness, and durability – the tripod system weighs just 4.4 lb and supports up to 26.45 lb, to accommodate any DSLR with most lenses.

One of the tripod legs unscrews to become a monopod. The center column is both removable and reversible to accommodate shooting from the lowest of low angles.

Leg angles can be set at three different positions; at their widest and with the column removed, the AirHed 2's camera plate sits only 8.3" from the ground. (The camera can also be attached directly to the tripod for a minimum height of 4.72".) The X2.1a Dave's leg angles can be set independently to support stable shooting on uneven surfaces.

The AirHed 2 is a sturdy magnesium alloy ball head that features a triple bubble system, separate control knobs for pan lock, tilt lock, and Arca-style clamping of the included quick-release plate. There's also a tension control built into the tilt-lock knob.

Titanium mounting plate with grub screw locators to bolt on the head
Includes hook for hanging a counterweight from the center column, for extra stability in windy conditions
Twist locks for leg stages
Bubble level on chassis, and two on head
