THE PRO RANGE

The Pro Range 2.0 is the evolution of our award-winning Equinox and Eclipse professional, carbon fibre tripods. Refined, enhanced, and with innovative features, they are available in two colourways - Earth Bronze with Ocean Blue AirHeds, and Metallic Slate Grey with hints of British Racing Green.

PARALLEL LOCKING

Parallel locks give users greater torque and better grip, for unbeatable rigidity, and ease of use in any conditions.

TRI-MOUNT PLATE

Our patented Tri-Mount plate offers six 1/4" and one 3/8" threaded holes for multiple devices, and three convex, hollow spurs for accessory attachments.

MULTI SECTION COLUMNS

We were the first to introduce telescopic centre columns that are completely reversible and removable, giving unparalleled versatility.

3 DETACHABLE LEGS

All three tripod legs can be detached and used as monopods or boom arms. With legs removed, and the addition of tripod footwear, our Pro Range 2.0 easily convert to table-top tripods.

100% PURE CARBON FIBRE

3LT's Stealth Carbon Fibre is unique, 100% Pure, Japanese Pre-Preg. We use 8 layers, cured at 150°c for 3 hours, and rested for 7 days at 37°c.

LOAD TO WEIGHT RATIO

Our load capabilities are upwards of 4x greater than most tripods with an average load to weight ratio of 17:1, higher than any other brand.

DETACHABLE CLAMPS

Our professional clamps found on the AirHed Pro and AirHed Pro Lever are detachable, and can be used independently of a head via the 3/8" female threaded centre.

INTERCHANGEABLE FOOTWEAR

Each of our beautifully crafted foot accessories has a 1/4" stainless steel thread, with a 3/8" sleeve adapter for universal compatibility.
