3 Legged Thing Legends BUCKY Carbon Fibre Tripod System - Bronze


Availability: Out of stock

Bucky is a premium travel tripod which is both incredibly portable, yet offers a hugely impressive working height range from ground level up to almost 2 metres tall.
Part of 3 Legged Thing’s new Legends range, Bucky features not one but three detachable legs which can be used as monopods or boom arms. With the legs removed, Bucky can be used as a table-top tripod by adding a set of 3LT’s tripod footwear.
Bucky is constructed from 8 layers of 100% pure carbon fibre and aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, and has a new design of leg and column locks. Externally new O-Pads give users improved grip, leverage, and water displacement. Internally the locks have been engineered with a new design of Chicken Lips (shims) which give the locks greater strength and grip.
3LT’s Rapid Latch, an anodised metal leg latch with auto-engage lock, is used to open and position Bucky’s legs, and to release them for counter-folding.
