MIKE

Skateboarder & inventor of the iconic McTwist

Levelling-up

Equally useful for video makers or wildlife and landscape photographers, Mike is a robust levelling-base tripod, ideal for even the most challenging terrains.

Solid As A Rock

With robust 29 mm 3-section carbon fibre legs, and a new style of anti-rotation Chicken Lips internally, Mike is engineered for stability

Up And Down

With a maximum height of 1.48 metres (58") and the ability to get as low as 13.5cm (5.3") Mike is truly versatile at any height.

Smooth Operator

Mike's contoured levelling base features a dual-purpose D-ring which acts as the easy-to-adjust friction control for the leveller, as well as an attachment point for accessories or ballast.

On The Level

Mike's easy-to-adjust levelling base system enables smooth fast set-ups, and the built-in bubble level ensures perfect positioning.

Versatile & Modular

With 3 detachable legs which can be used as monopods or boom arms, Mike's levelling base can be converted to a table top / low-level tripod, or a foot stabiliser for the monopod, by adding 3LT footwear (sold separately).

Chicken Lips

Mike has been engineered with a style of Chicken Lips (shims) that give the leg locks greater strength, grip and formidable anti-rotation.

Rapid Latch

The new Rapid-Latch angle adjustment was designed to be easy to adjust, even for those with impairments, or wearing thick gloves.

O-Pads

Our new raised O-Pads with Bubble Grip texture provide better grip, torque and water dispersement than any other leg lock on the planet.

A Range of Footwear

Mike has detachable rubber Bootz which can be replaced with any of our foot accessories, for maximum stability on any terrain, including our DOCZ foot stabilizer.

Footwear for the Revolution

With the ability to convert our Legends Range tripods into low-level tripods by removing the legs, VANZ are the ideal conversion footwear to suit a multitude of terrains. With stainless steel shafts, spiked ends, and removeable ABS balls.
