(From company literature) Gitzo G1128G Mountaineer Sport Tripod. The G1128G is part of a new geared tripod series that combines the strength and stability of the Mountaineer range with the precision height adjustment of an aluminum geared column.
A four-section tripod, the G1128G is an excellent choice for all digital cameras, 35mm cameras, and lightweight camcorders.
Gitzo carbon tubes use an exclusive process based on pull winding of long carbon fibers that are precisely wrapped and combined under high pressure and temperature with epoxy resin to a 1.5mm wall thickness. This manufacturing process ensures stiff, light tubes resistant to bending, have good tensile and compression strength, a high degree of stability in extreme temperatures, absorbs vibration and withstands fatigue better than other carbon fiber tube processes.
A stainless steel weight hook is also attached to the base of the center column, providing a convenient place to add extra stability in windy conditions. Another first from Gitzo.
Mountaineer tripods are constructed using a "screw thread and adhesive" dual jointing technology pioneered by Gitzo. Called "H.I.S." (Hybrid Interconnecting System), thus construction technique provides greater strength and stability.
