Speed Lock 75 CF Tripod (4588)
The Speed Lock 75 CF is the fastest two stage tripod in the world! Simply release the three easy to reach clamps and the Speed Lock75 CF is ready for action. This extremely sturdy and twist-resistant carbon fiber tripod ensures that you're already shooting while the others are still setting up.

It takes just three quick movements and the Speed Lock 75 CF is ready for action - and users don't even have to bend over! The patented clamping system lets you adjust the tripod smoothly and safely, even with a camera mounted. The Speed Lock 75 CF's carbon fiber construction ensures minimal load-free weight, and increases stability and twist resistance. On top of that, the clamping connection forms a third tube to further increase stability. The ergonomically shaped, high-tech clamps have a rounded design which ensures that cables slide off without catching. In addition, you can tell at a glance whether the legs are clamped into position.
