By re-evaluating the fundamentals of traditional tripod design, the new Fibertec tripod provides the professional with an even more stable working platform, suitable for any application. Fibertec is up to three times more rigid than its nearest competitor; an ideal characteristic when using high levels of drag and long lenses, particularly in windy outdoor conditions.The strength of Fibertec comes from the unique channel leg sections of carbon/glass composite. To improve set-up and positioning time, lever action leg clamps are positioned adjacent to each other at the top of their respective stages. To further increase durability and reliability, all exposed edges are reinforced and moulded joints have eliminated the need for adhesives.The unique design of the Fibertec's lever-operated clamping system is a significant contributory factor in the overall performance of the tripod. With long term reliability, ease of operation and minimal maintenance in mind, our designers have introduced a system that utilises the entire length of the leg overlap. So the more the legs are nested, the bigger the clamping area, almost doubling the maximum carrying capacity of a traditional Vinten 100mm tripod to an impressive 45kg.
