Gitzo GM-5540 Mountaineer 6X Carbon Fiber Monopod
Description (from B&H): The Gitzo GM-5540 Mountaineer 6X Carbon Fiber Monopod is 4 leg-section model that weighs less than 2 lbs, but can support systems up to an impressive 55 lbs. This monopod also incorporates Gitzo’s revolutionary 6X technology tube, which reduces overall monopods weight up to 25% without sacrificing strength or stability.
The G-Lock mechanism has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer leg locking. G-Lock’s special design also provides a “gravity lock” effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
