(From company literature) The SLIK Sprint is a compact model with features that compact digital photographers are looking for. A maximum height of 63.1 inches reaches eye level yet the SPRINT folds to an impressively compact 17.9 inches and weighs in at just 30.3 ounces (less than 2 pounds) for easy travel.

The emphasis on the SPRINT is ease of use. Any tripod should be easy to use, so that that far more time is spent concentrating on the subject and enjoying photography, than stressing about the equipment. This tripod makes setting up simple and secure with fast, easy to use SLIK speed release leg locks and gearless center column for quick height adjustments.

SLIK even designed a new head for the SPRINT series. This ball head features a precision milled aluminum ball for smooth reliable camera movements. The head and tripod can easily handle a camera up to 3.0 pounds in weight.

The SLIK SPRINT is available in either Silver Metallic or near black SLIK Gun Metallic.
