It is much taller than its predecessor thanks to the space-efficient Traveler G-lock.

The feet are interchangeable with Gitzo's optional feet, such as spikes and large feet.
Carbon eXact tubes are stiffer than the predecessors' Carbon 6X tubes, as they include HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre, and have larger tube diameters.

The Gitzo GH1382QD Series 1 Center Ball Head is engineered and designed focusing on ultimate smoothness and precision of the movement and locking. Despite its slim design, it is fully featured including the friction control knob positioned inside the ball locking knob. The head can be removed easily to attach other heads on the tripod's upper disc, but it is recommended to use the GH1382QD head to ensure perfect fitting of the head between the folded legs.
The Center Ball Head is an Arca-type compatible head that has a separate lock for the 360° panning and another to control the movement of the ball. A tungsten disulphide coating on the ball helps keep the ball movement smooth and minimizes stick-slip. A screw-knob lock tightens down on the included quick-release plate and a bubble level helps you maintain straight horizons in your images. To allow for precise adjustments, a friction control dial is integrated into the large locking knob.
