Since our inception in 2010, we have indulged in a single pursuit - to make the most technologically advanced camera support systems on the planet. Here is a short guide to the unique construction & engineering, our award winning innovation and design, and our unparalleled features & modular functionality.
CONSTRUCTION & ENGINEERING
The first thing that many new customers notice about our tripods is the build quality. We are universally recognised as being a premium brand, and we've earned it. Here's what makes us so special.
WEIGHT BALANCED LOCKS
Each of our patented Parallel Locks has had 26 g / 0.91 oz of weight added to lower the centre of gravity and optimise the rigidity and stability.
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.
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.
We use a single, "C" shaped mechanical shim, constructed from nylon, and naturally lubricated to ensure smooth opening, and stable locking of legs.
