This carbon fiber rapid center column is compatible with Series 5 Systematic tripods. It slides into the tripod shoulder quickly and easily and twists to lock it into position. It has a safety catch that is compatible with recent Systematic tripods featuring a safety button preventing the column from dropping out of the tripod even if it is inadvertently left unlocked.
The GS5513XLS features high-quality Carbon eXact tubes and G-lock Ultra to extend/lock the telescopic column (the same mechanism used in Gitzo tripod legs), with solid discs on top and underneath, and a lower hook to add extra weight when necessary.
GS5513XLS replaces the GS5511XLS.
Revolutionary Carbon eXact tubes are even stiffer to maximize rigidity and image stability. Carbon eXact optimizes the fibre composition for each tube size, using HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre in the narrower tubes to make them stiffer. The tube diameters are also optimized: the final leg section of a 4 section Series 1 tripod is now 22.5% thicker than its predecessor.
Gitzo's G-lock system has been redesigned from the inside out; G-lock Ultra is smoother and softer to use, and is designed to reduce dust and grit from getting in.
