Traveler is a unique concept invented by Gitzo that has become a must for compact photo supports. The revolutionary system comes from the intuition of folding the legs upside down in order to minimize the support folded length during transportation. The new Safari Traveler kit combines for the first time all of the desires of the keen bird watcher. It maximises extreme light weight, compactness, stable and vibration free performance, controlled and precise scope movements with a full size tall tripod for comfortable and long lasting observations. Following Gitzo tradition, even the smallest detail has been taken care of in order to make the Safari Traveler Kit the ultimate tool for Bird Watching. The best Gitzo materials and technologies like the carbon fibre 6X tubes and the ultra-light weight yet extremely sturdy design are matched with outdoor specific features. A special combination is used for leg locks: the upper lock is the powerful G-Lock that guarantees extremely high performance with a smooth and fast action, ideal to level the tripod on uneven surfaces. The two lower locks are the exclusive Ocean-Locks, a special waterproof version of G-Lock that allows you to plunge the tripod into water and mud with no risk of damaging it. All inner components are design to withstand water and humidity. This kit includes pre-installed spike feet with a special rubber cover for increased versatility and efficiency in every outdoor environment. The series 2- tall, strong and yet lightweight tripod has been chosen to guarantee the most stable and ergonomic platform, while a smaller, lighter yet high performance series 1 2way head has been selected in order to maximise compactness and transportability without sacrificing stability and movement control. This new head is the only head in the market that is specifically developed for bird watching and is not derived from video applications. The head combines light weight and compactness with the latest Gitzo technologies, and the main body is made of casted lightweight magnesium. The two fluid cartridges are specific for this application and movements are exceptionally smooth and controlled. Furthermore, it features the innovative Single Lock System for a faster, more intuitive and ergonomic operation. In this special kit only the series 1 head comes with a longer quick release sliding plate to improve balancing capabilities even when longer and heavier equipment, like for digiscoping, is used. The new Series 2 Traveler comes with a smart Gitzo display cleaner and a convenient anti-dust bag for packing and transportation. The textile anti-dust bag contributes an answer to environmental protection; aiming to reduce the amount of plastic bags that global industry produces every year.
