The Gitzo GT1532 Mountaineer Series 1 Carbon Fiber Tripod features Carbon eXact tubing, which includes High Modulus carbon fibre in the lower leg sections, adding to their diameters and making the tripod more rigid and stronger than its predecessor. The GT1532 has a load capacity of 10 Kg, extends to a maximum height of 158 cm, and folds down to 62 cm for transport.
The centre column on the tripod can be removed for Ground Level Set, which enables the tripod to reach its lowest height of 17 cm. Its three-section legs are secured with twist locks that incorporate G-lock Ultra, which has an internal O-ring to prevent dust and particles from entering the leg system. The top spider has been redesigned to add rigidity and large leg angle selectors give you more area to grip when readjusting leg angles. A ballast hook on the centre column allows you to add weight to increase the tripod's stability.
