Series 2 has the largest tube diameters among Traveller tripods. It is ideal for photographers using longer lenses or requiring the highest stability. The feet are interchangeable with Gitzo’s optional feet, such as spikes and large feet. A 4-section tripod, much taller than its predecessor thanks to the space efficient Traveler G-lock.

Carbon eXact tubes are stiffer than the predecessors’ Carbon 6X tubes, as they include HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre, and have larger tube diameters. For example, the lowest leg section of the Series 1, 5 section tripod has a diameter of 11.2mm; 40% larger than the predecessor.

Traveller G-lock is a new, compact leg lock system dedicated to Traveller Tripods. Its space efficiency makes it possible to have taller tripods with compact folded lengths. The new, curved external form gives good grip, while the internal O-ring achieves softer operation and reduces dust and grit entering the locks.

The head is smooth, precise, and perfectly fits between the folded legs.
All tripod models are available as Kits with head, or without the head.
The head in Kits can be easily removed and replaced with other heads.
