  • Carbon Fiber Center Column
  • Height: 40.0cm
  • Weight: 0.49kg
  • Rapid Center Column
  • Many purists choose Systematic tripods precisely because they don't have center columns
  • Sometimes it's useful to have the extra height (or to be able to hang the camera underneath the tripod shoulder on an inverted column)
  • This carbon fiber rapid center column is compatible with Series 2, 3 and 4 Systematic tripods
  • Gitzo's 6X Carbon Fibre tubing is both rigid and resistant to torsion and lighter in weight than aluminum
  • The wide-diameter tubing of the column maintains the strength of Systematic whatever height it's set to
  • The "rapid" column slides freely and quickly in the tripod shoulder
  • Can be locked and unlocked via a simple twist mechanism similar to Gitzo tripod legs
  • Offers the same strength and solid locking under heavy loads
  • The new design is longer and features new components
  • Components include Gitzo's much-improved Power Disc (with head locking screws) and a convenient retractable hook to allow stabilizing counterweights to be hung from the column
  • The column is fully compatible with the safety catch feature of Gitzo's updated Systematic range, offering secure, accident-proof support, even during changeovers of center components
  • Specifications:
  • Center Column: Rapid
  • Column Travel: 31.0 cm/12.2 in.
  • Column Height: 40.0 cm/15.75 in.
  • Material: Carbon Fiber 6x
  • Series: 2-3-4
  • Weight: 0.49 kg/1.08 lbs.
