3 Legged Thing Legends RAY Carbon Fibre Tripod System & AirHed Vu - Bronze/Blue


Availability: In stock

Ray is the ultimate, ultra-compact, micro-travel tripod, pairing incredible portability with strength and stability.
Part of 3 Legged Thing’s Legends range, Ray features not one but three detachable legs which can be used as monopods or boom arms. With the legs removed, Ray can be used as a table-top tripod by adding a set of 3LT’s tripod footwear.
Ray 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 Ray’s legs, and to release them for counter-folding.
Ray ships with a stunning new ballhead – the AirHed Vu, and QR-Octa quick release plate. AirHed Vu features contoured security cut-outs in the detachable clamp, to accommodate security pins in the underside of the QR-Octa plate. AirHed Vu also has a vision panel in the casing allowing uses to see the mechanism move into place.
