The Gitzo GM5541 6X Carbon Fiber Monopod is Series 5 4-section
monopod that weighs less than two lbs, but can still support cameras up
to 55 lbs. This monopod also incorporates Gitzo's revolutionary 6X
technology tube, which reduces the overall monopod's 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.
