Gitzo is celebrating one hundred years of outstanding innovation and technological leadership by launching an exclusive, limited-edition travel kit, the 100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION.
The innovative 100 Year Anniversary Edition kit is not just a celebratory photography support. It is the ultimate high-performance professional tool featuring unique design and the very latest technology. This highly desirable flagship product will be available worldwide in an exclusive limited edition of only 1917 pieces, referencing Gitzo’s year of foundation, with the number of each piece laser engraved on one leg (1/1917 to 1917/1917) .
The 100 Year Anniversary Edition Tripod introduces a brand-new magnesium spider emphasized by a black finish and titanium colour details that make this model outstandingly stylish. It has Gitzo’s latest Traveler Series 1 technological features, including state of the art Carbon eXact tubing for superior strength and stiffness in a slimmer size and 180° leg folding mechanism for the ultimate strength, which enables its legs to reverse-fold around the center column and the head. It also features the Traveler G-lock mechanism, specifically designed to ensure security in reduced size, making the tripod compact, strong and ergonomic, together with a brand-new Center Ball Head which comes from the Series 1 Traveler, the slimmest tripod head in the Gitzo professional tripod head range. This head model features independent pan lock. It provides uncompromising ball smoothness and is constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The Ball Head is supplied with a short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate and is also perfect with all Gitzo D profile plates. Its quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon. The Arsène Gitzhoven Edition center ball head is perfectly balanced and versatile, engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking.
Moreover, the limited-edition tripod features an ergonomic strap made of genuine Italian leather with a carbon fibre look, for extreme comfort in use.
The 100 Year Anniversary Edition kit is presented in a highly refined, black branded chest with leather detailing containing the tripod and its accessories, the tripod’s certificate of authenticity signed by Gitzo’s CEO, and includes a hang tag with the name of the craftsman who created each specific piece.
