Gitzo G1227 MK2 Mountaineer 25-64" (Carbon Fiber) Description


"Mountaineer" Carbon Fiber Tripod" Lighter Gitzo are the original carbon tripods up to 30% lighter than equivalent alloy version without compromise on strength, tensional stability or durability. Unparalleled Strength Gitzo carbon tubes use an exclusive process based on pull winding of long carbon fibers which are precisely wrapped and combined under high pressure and temperature with epoxy resin to a 1.5mm wall thickness. This manufacturing process ensures stiff, light tubes resistant to bending, has good tensile and compression strength, a high degree of stability in extreme temperatures, absorbs vibration and withstands fatigue better than other carbon fiber tube processes. Grooved Carbon Center Column Unique grooved, carbon Rapid center columns are now fitted to prevent rotation and increase stability and include stainless steel weight hook. HIS Technology Mountaineer tripods are now constructed using a "screw thread and glue" dual jointing technology pioneered by Gitzo called "HIS". This provides greater strength and security on location. Smooth Control Telescopic leg extensions can be set without slippage with rubber cushioned leg locks. Mountaineer Mk2 Series 2 - Photographic Top leg :- 28mm Loads up to:- 8 kg - 16.3 lbs. Matching heads: 2 Series Application: This model is suitable for 35mm and medium format cameras up to light 6 x 6 cm. The G1227 features a grooved Rapid center column.

Innovations such as the first uses of carbon and basalt fibre to make tripods and magnesium to make heads, matched with a design policy of "no gimmicks and no compromise on quality" put Gitzo products in a class of their own.
