BUCKY

“Once you get over the fear, it becomes a lot easier" - Bucky Lasek

Here to win.

Bucky is the seventh iteration of our unique and iconic 5-leg section 3-column section tripod configuration. The most versatile and functional travel tripod on the planet.

Rallying

Bucky is a tribute to the unconventional cornerstone of 3LT's tripod design. With 5 section legs and triple section removable column, Bucky has one of the largest dynamic working ranges of any tripod.

Vert

With a maximum height of almost 2 metres (75") and the ability to get as low as 11cm (4.3") Bucky is truly a vert specialist.

Record Breaker

Imagine a tripod that is so modular it has completely removable column and legs - 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.

BUCKY

Light. Strong. Modular.
