RAY

“Ray Barbee is one of my very favorite skaters of all time, the epitome of style with a smile.” - George Powell - Powell-Peralta / Skate One Corp.

"I love things that just are" - Ray Barbee

3LT's RAY tripod is inspired by the life and works of Ray Barbee - Pro skater, musician and photographer. Designed with smooth lines and effortless style, Ray is a new level of innovation and engineering.

No Comply

Ray is a committment to the unconventional. The most modular and stylish tripod we have ever created.

Public Domain

The result of five years of development, design, engineering and testing, Ray is the best kept secret in our history.

Ban This

Imagine a tripod with five leg sections and two column sections that is so modular it converts to zero leg or column sections - then imagine multiple mounts, a sexy new tri-mount design, and leg locks designed to be useable with thick gloves, or impaired mobility. Then stop imagining, and look.

RAY

Innovative. Powerful. Class.

Built For Travel

At just 35cm folded, and weighing just 1.27kg, Ray is the perfect travel companion, whether you're hiking, flying or skateboarding.

Versatile & Modular

With 3 detachable legs, removable and reversible column, and multiple mounting points, Ray is a new breed of tripod.

Max Load to Weight Ratio of 24:1

Ray can support weights of 24 times his own weight making him a powerful tool for photographers of all levels. A load capability of 30kg is staggering, for a tripod this small.

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 O-Pads provide better grip, torque and water dispersement than any other leg lock on the planet.

A Range of Footwear

Ray 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.
