Introducing the 100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY EDITION TRAVELER TRIPOD
Gitzo, a pioneer in many of the most advanced, revolutionary technologies for professional camera equipment, is celebrating one hundred years of outstanding innovation and technological leadership by launching an exclusive magnesium limited-edition travel tripod – the 100 Year Anniversary Edition.
Gitzo initiated the travel tripod era, creating products designed to be companions for life. The world’s most inspirational brand of tripods and heads is celebrating its first centenary of tradition, innovation and expertise that have made it a beacon of excellence in the photographic world. No other manufacturer has so consistently broken the boundaries of possibility, passionately devising and producing the means through which photographers turn vision into reality.
To mark the occasion, Gitzo has launched the new 100Y “DEFINING TOMORROW” logo, referencing infinity and the creations the company has yet to roll out.
The innovative 100 Year Anniversary Edition Tripod is not just a celebratory photography support. It is the ultimate high-performance professional tool featuring unique design and the very latest technology. This highly desirable flagship product will be available worldwide in an exclusive limited edition of just 1917 pieces, referencing Gitzo’s year of foundation, with the number of each piece laser engraved on one leg (1/1917 to 1917/1917).
The 100 Year Anniversary Edition Tripod introduces a brand-new magnesium spider, emphasized by a black finish and titanium color details that make this model outstandingly stylish. It has Gitzo’s latest Traveler Series 1 technological features, including state-of-the-art Carbon eXact tubing and 180° leg folding mechanism for the ultimate strength, the Traveler G-lock mechanism, making it compact, strong and ergonomic, together with a brand-new Center Ball Head for superior smoothness and precision. Moreover, the limited-edition tripod features an ergonomic strap made of genuine Italian leather with a carbon fiber look for extreme comfort in use.
The 100 Year Anniversary Edition Tripod is presented in a highly refined, black branded chest with leather detailing containing the tripod and its accessories, the tripod’s certificate of authenticity signed by Gitzo’s CEO, and includes the name of the craftsman who created each specific piece.
- Exquisite new high-appeal look and feel with distinctive design, smooth spider casting shapes, new leg angle selectors and locking collars.
- 1917 – the magic number of Gitzo’s foundation year and the total pieces of this exclusive symbol of Gitzo’s history available worldwide.
- The new black & titanium grey color combination is an elegant, contemporary expression of this exceptional flagship product.
The 100 Year Anniversary Edition is available for $1,499.99 in the U.S. and is exclusive to select dealers.
Gitzo’s centenary celebrations will also see the launch of other exclusive products that distinguish themselves through their new design and high-appeal including the ARSÈNE GITZHOVEN TRAVELER TRIPOD, the world’s most exclusive carbon fiber travel tripod, the Centenary Bag Collection and the Fluid Gimbal Head.
