  • Many purists choose Systematic tripods precisely because they don't have centre columns, but sometimes it's useful to have the extra height (or to be able to hang the camera underneath the tripod shoulder on an inverted column).

    This extra long telescopic carbon fibre rapid centre column is compatible with Series 5 Systematic tripods. Gitzo's 6X Carbon Fibre tubing is both rigid and resistant to torsion and lighter in weight than aluminium. The wide-diameter tubing of the column maintains the strength of Systematic whatever height it's set to. The ''rapid'' column slides freely and quickly in the tripod shoulder and is locked and unlocked via a simple twist mechanism similar to Gitzo tripod legs, offering the same strength and solid locking under heavy loads. The incredible reach of this extra long telescopic centre column adds unparalleled positioning flexibility: the column makes any Gitzo Systematic tripod up to 172.5cm/67.9'' taller. When combined with the Giant tripod, the maximum extended height is an amazing 4.2m / 165'' - allowing truly unique perspectives.

    Compared to older Systematic centre columns, the new design is longer and features new components, including Gitzo's much-improved Power Disc (with head locking screws) and a convenient retractable hook to allow stabilising counterweights to be hung from the column. The column is fully compatible with the safety catch feature of Gitzo's updated Systematic range, offering secure, accident-proof support, even during changeovers of centre components.
