Since launching our first carbon fiber tripods in 2009, we have been dedicated to making the world’s finest tripods. With the help of our customers’ invaluable feedback, we continuously make improvements.
Improved ergonomics make operating the tripod more comfortable and seamless. Additional 1/4”-20 sockets along the outside of the tripod’s apex allow you to attach optional accessories and shoulder-strap mounts. The Mark 2 tripods are faster to lock/unlock and hold up better to the elements. Redesigned twist-locks prevent grit and debris from contaminating the threads. We added a vent at the top of each leg to allow efficient air transfer when extending or collapsing, for rapid deployment and takedown.
What hasn’t changed is our attention to detail, high-quality craftsmanship and commitment to proudly make and hand-assemble all our tripods in the USA.
The Ultralight Tripod includes most of the features as a Versa model, but swaps out the versa apex for a fixed apex. The fixed apex cannot use accessories like a quick-column, but packs down considerably smaller in diameter.
Twist locks with integrated wipers to keep particles out of the locking mechanism, providing better resistance to the elements
Improved knurling pattern feels better on your skin
Collets replace the old locking gibbs, reducing lock engagement to half the travel to lock and unlock faster with less effort
O-rings help keep threads clean and smooth while providing better tactile feedback
Vented clevis design allow legs to collapse faster without pressure buildup
Threaded sockets on the sides of the apex provide better placement for accessories like Quick Detach (QD) attachments or a BC-18
Less tools to carry when changing apex accessories; the 2 and 3 Series SureGrip (TVC models only) now uses the same 5/32” hex key you likely have stored on your RRS plate
