When Gitzo launched the Mountaineer tripods in 1994, they were the world's first carbon fiber tripods. Ever since then they've set the standard for performance and quality. The main feature of the range is the 6X carbon fiber tube, made of a unique structure of 6 crossed layers that maximizes rigidity, vibration absorption and lightweight performance. The 6X tube has a high-density structure made of 100% top quality ultra-thin carbon fibers (7μm or 0.007 mm). Built-in Anti Leg Rotation is now a feature of the whole carbon fiber range.
Mountaineer tripods have been further improved with features and details that increase performance, versatility and quality. G-Lock is our leg locking system that increases system rigidity by 20% and allows quicker and stronger leg locking. We've added a solid machined aluminum upper disc with a new Safe Lock material that cuts vibration and improves grip between tripod and head. The upper disc can also be fitted directly to the upper casting, removing the center column for ground level photography or to save weight. All new Mountaineer tripods come with a convenient anti dust bag for storage and packing. The textile anti dust bag is also an answer to environmental protection, aiming to reduce the amount of plastic bags that world industry is introducing into the market yearly.
About the GT3531...
Scaled for professional equipment, medium format and DSLRs with 300mm lens up to 400mm maximum. High maximum load capacity and outstanding torsion rigidity, Series 3 tripods are available in 3- and 4-section models at standard and eye level heights. Series 3 Carbon 6X tripods are surprisingly lightweight and offer a good safety margin that makes them popular alternatives to series 2 tripods. All series 3 Mountaineer tripods now feature a new third ultra low leg spread to take full advantage of the Ground Level Set and are provided with the new Power Disc for a safer headlock.
NOTE : The GT3531 is recommended with the GH3750QR Series 3 Mag Off Centre Head Quick Release.
