The Gitzo Series 2 GM2541 6X Carbon Monopod is 4 leg-section model that weighs approximately one pound, but can still support cameras up to 26.4 lb (12 kg). 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 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.
