(From company literature) Gitzo G1588 Mountaineer Tele-Studex Monopod. The G1588 is a four section monopod that weighs a mere 2 lbs, yet is designed to accept a maximum load of 26.5 lbs.
Mountaineer carbon fiber tubes use an exclusive process based on pull winding of long carbon fibre to a 1.5mm wall thickness.
This manufacturing process ensures stiff, light tubes resistant to bending, absorbs vibration, and withstands fatigue better than other carbon fiber tube processes.
A cushioned handgrip, 1/4"-20 or 3/8" mounting screw and twist lock grips prevent any slippage.
