Slik introduce new range of carbon fibre tripods and pro ball heads

All four models in the PRO CF tripod range use eight-layer carbon fibre legs for a strong and lightweight result

The four new tripods in Slik’s PRO CF come with four- or five-section telescopic legs. Of the new tripods, the smallest, the PRO CF-635, packs down to just 37cm and can extend to 159cm without head, accommodating a 3kg load. The PRO CF-834 model, the largest in the range, measures 48cm when folded and has a maximum extended height of 165cm without head, with the ability support a 7kg load.

Other features of the tripods in the range include three-step, variable angle legs with twist locks to aid a faster set-up, a splittable centre column allowing for near-ground shooting, and a spring-loaded hook to hold a weight and provide extra stability when needed.

The two new pro ball heads feature a ‘Cam-Lock’ Arca-Swiss compatible quick-release system. Each head incorporates locking, panning and friction control knobs and are designed to accommodate pro DSLR camera systems. The PBH-535AS can accommodate a 5kg system whereas the PBH 635AS can support up to 6kg.

Suggested retail prices for the tripod legs range from £219 to £299, with the heads suggested to retail from £85 to £90.
