Vitruvian tripod range expanded

Award-Winning Vitruvian tripod range expanded

In direct response to consumer feedback Giotto’s has this week launched two new larger Vitruvian tripods with an increased weight capacity of 9kg.

Available in Aluminium and Carbon Fibre these new larger, more stable, tripods still fold down to an incredibly compact 40cm.

The newest additions have an operating height of 147cm, and with the centre column extended reach a maximum 171cm.The VGRN9265 is manufactured using aluminium tubing and weighs 2.03kg while the VGRN8265 uses 7 layer carbon tubing and weighs just 1.72kg.

Inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, Giotto’s Vitruvian tripods are designed to offer photographers not only a truly lightweight and compact tripod, but were also the first tripods to include the built in monopod.

VGRN tripods are fitted with a compact ball + socket head that offers friction control, pan lock, quick release plate and spirit levels. The legs also feature retractable spiked feet and a splittable centre column for low-level use.

All Vitruvian tripods feature reverse technology legs - so that when collapsed they fold through 180 degrees to surround the tripod centre column, allowing the tripod to fold into a more compact and portable unit.

The tripod castings are made from a forged aluminium alloy for strength and the twist leg locks require only 1/8 turn to lock and unlock - making it quick and easy to set the tripod up.

All are supplied with a carry bag and have a 5 year warranty.
