Gitzo GK1545T-82TQD Series 1 Traveler Carbon eXact Tripod Kit
The GK1545T-82TQD Series 1 Traveler kit is made up of the GT1545T tripod and 82TQD centre ball head. This kit offers the perfect blend between weight (1450g), height (163.5cm) and rigidity thanks to its unique reverse folding leg design, strong carbon fibre eXact tube construction and space efficient Traveler G-lock leg system. The 82TQD head provides smooth, precise movements when framing and comes equipped with an independent pan lock and ball lock. Recommended for use with 135mm lenses or similar (200mm maximum).

Traveler Tripods, with the 180° leg folding mechanism pioneered by Gitzo, are now even stronger with the state of the art "Carbon eXact" tubes. "Traveler G-lock", a new leg lock system dedicated for Traveler Tripods, is compact but strong and ergonomic. The new range is available in 4 sizes, as legs only, or as kits (tripod+head) featuring the new Center Ball Heads for ultimate smoothness and precision. The slimmest Series 0 is added to the Traveler family for the first time, while the Series 1 and 2 models have become taller than their predecessors.
Series 1. (top leg ø: 25.3mm)
Series 1 has the perfect balance between lightweight when carrying, and height and rigidity when shooting. The 5 section Traveler has a superb height / closed length ratio. The 4 section Traveler is much taller than its predecessor thanks to the space efficient Traveler G-lock.
Carbon eXact - Stronger legs
Carbon eXact tubes are stiffer than the predecessors’ Carbon 6X tubes, as they include HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre, and have larger tube diameters. For example, the lowest leg section of the Series 1, 5 section tripod has a diameter of 11.2mm; 40% larger than the predecessor.
Traveler G-lock - space saving and ergonomic
Traveler G-lock is a new, compact leg lock system dedicated to Traveler Tripods. Its space efficiency makes it possible to have taller tripods with compact folded lengths. The new, curved external form gives good grip, while the internal O-ring achieves softer operation and reduces dust and grit entering the locks.
Tripod Kits with new Center Ball Heads
The head is smooth, precise, and perfectly fits between the folded legs. All tripod models are available as Kits with head, or without the head. The head in Kits can be easily removed and replaced with other heads.
