basalt tripods

Thanks to its unique expertise in composite materials, Gitzo developed a new High Performance basalt fibre 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 fibres. Fibres are wet in the special resin and then pulled through a high temperature core that generates the tube as we know it. This works perfectly with 6X carbon fibre tubes, while basalt fibres absorb a smaller quantity of resin and this reduces tube density and performance. To overcome this physical limit of basalt fibres, it has been developed a new technology (DRI) to boost a higher quantity of resin into the fibres and increase the tube performance up to 22%, depending on the tube diameter.Besides the High Performance tube, the new Gitzo Basalt Collection offer new sizes and a new look. Basalt tripods are available in Series 1 - 2 and 3 in standard and compact height. The range also includes a new monopod and a microphone boom, both in a convenient 6 section compact size. The new basalt introduces a new colour scheme: black and flame orange, inspired by the basalt itself, a black rock that comes from the Hearth lava core. The basalt collection is completed by three centre ball heads in the new black and flame orange colour scheme to perfectly match basalt tripods and monopod. Basalt fibre tripods, monopod and boom 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. Basalt tripods come with a smart Gitzo display cleaner and a convenient anti-dust bag for storage and packing.
