New Gitzo Mountaineer Tripods

Gitzo is my favourite tripod manufacturer for professional use, they just have this exceptional  quality and style besides functionality that puts them above the others.

Gitzo has redesigned Mountaineer tripods  to incorporate their latest technology which increases rigidity and improves performance. The new series offer stiffer legs and structure  and enhanced usability and comfort. Mountaineer tripods are available from the lightweight and compact Series 0, up to the sturdiest Series 3, with the collection comprising 13 products.

Gitzo Press Release

Gitzo introduces the new Mountaineer Tripod range


We are proud to inform you about the official launch of our new Mountaineer tripods – Gitzo’s most popular, ‘all-purpose’ carbon tripod family.

Mountaineer tripods have been developed further to incorporate the latest Gitzo technology which increases rigidity, improves performance and ease of use for professional photographers.

Stiffer legs and structure

More than ever, our priority is to ensure that Gitzo tripods allow photographers to get sharper images no matter what weight of equipment, length of lens or duration of exposure is being used: that means making them as rigid as possible.

New Mountaineer tripods are more rigid than the preceding Carbon 6X models, thanks to the newly developed, innovative Carbon eXact tubes. The new tubing optimises fibre composition for each tube size, including HM (High Modulus) carbon fibre composition (a denser fibre made up of finer individual fibres) in the narrower tubes. Carbon eXact tubes have larger diameters that strengthen the tripods even further, particularly the narrower tubes used for the lower leg sections.

The Mountaineer top spider and column lock are also redesigned for greater rigidity.

Benefits of the new Mountaineer range
