Gitzo Series 2 Basalt Compact Tripod - 4 Section with Lock GT2940C Product Info

Gitzo Series 2 Basalt Compact Tripod - 4 Section with Lock GT2940C on sale and available from our online store. OpticsPlanet, Inc is an Authorized USimage Distributor for Gitzo Tripods.

Using the experience gained working with other advanced composite materials has made Gitzo the first and only manufacturer of a new generation of tripods that use Basalt fiber tubes. The fiber is made from basalt rock which is crushed and melted at 1500°C (or 2735°F). The extracted fibers are transformed into a tube using the same technology used for Gitzo Carbon 6X tube. Basalt tube has most of the features of carbon fiber, like high thermal and dimensional stability and reduced weight (20% lighter than aluminum). Like 6X, it is engineered to match Gitzo’s performance standards. Our Basalt tubes have a 1.2mm thick wall and a 3-crossed layer structure with built in Anti Leg Rotation (ALR). The performance and price of Basalt tripods puts them between aluminum and high performance Carbon 6X.
