Thanks to its unique expertise in composite materials, Gitzo developed a new High Performance basalt fiber tube. The new tube comes from a radical innovation of the Poltrusion process, the aerospace technology used by Gitzo to manufacture its composite tubes in one single step, starting from the raw fibers.Besides the High Performance tube, the new Gitzo Basalt Collection offer new sizes and a new look. The range includes a new monopod in a convenient 6 section compact size. The new basalt introduces a new color scheme: black and flame orange, inspired by the basalt itself, a black rock that comes from the Hearth lava core. Basalt fiber monopods come with the same features of the top of the range 6X models, such as G-Lock, ALR, Ground Level Set, Power Disk, third ground level leg spread and self locking feet among the others.
