Gitzo: Sturdier and Lighter 6X Tripods

Tripod maker Gitzo has redesigned its groundbreaking 6X tripod technology. The new generation of 6X tripods now features an innovative “G-lock” mechanism, a new ground level feature, and new upper discs and bolts.

First introduced in late 2005, 6X carbon fiber tripods used a new design process that reduced overall weight up to 17 percent without sacrificing strength or stability. Gitzo said the new high-grade stainless steel bolt design prevents it from dropping inside the column and makes it easier to control and adjust the tread length. The bolts are also corrosion and oxidation resistant.

“The new 6X tube is made of a unique six crossed layer structure that maximizes rigidity, vibration absorption and lightweight performance,” the company added.
