Traveler Tripods are extremely lightweight and compact professional carbon tripods based around the 180° leg folding system pioneered by Gitzo. It makes more efficient use of folded space by accommodating the centre column and head in between the folded tripod legs. Recommended for 135mm lenses (200mm maximum), Series 1 is the ideal solution for photographers on the move, or for whom space- and weight savings are of primary importance.
GT1544T is a 4-section Traveler tripod (head not included) with a standard-length centre column that allows smaller heads to fit neatly between the folded legs for a more compact closed size. For maximum rigidity and faster setup, leg locking is via our G-lock mechanism.
G-Lock is the new Gitzo leg locking system. The locking mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a 'gravity lock' effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
The centre column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved centre column for improved stability.
This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod centre column. Useful with long/heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
We have introduced a new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
Gitzo 6X is the most advanced carbon fiber tube in the market and guarantees structural strength, flexion rigidity and great vibration absorption properties. Despite the claims of other manufactures, the performance of this multilayer design is unique and inimitable thanks to the advanced aerospace production technology and the exclusive inner structure. It is the highest density tube 100% made of top quality ultra thin (7μm) carbon fibers (a 28mm tube contains 1.500.000 carbon fibers).
