Ideal for supporting high-end, heavy camera equipment in wildlife, landscape, travel and sports photography, all tripods in this series leg tubes made exclusively from top quality 6X carbon fibre. Shoulder elements throughout the range are made from corrosion-proof aluminium. The specially designed and engineered Ocean G-lock collars prevent sand, dust and mud from entering the leg tubes. Any water that gets inside the legs is expelled by the tube sections, which act as an air cushion. All Ocean tripods are designed to withstand exposure to salt water, mud or areas of high humidity, thanks to the use of corrosion-resistant materials and protective finishes.

The Series 1 Tripod Traveler Ocean model (RRP AU $1,950.00) uses the latest evolution of the Gitzo Traveler structure, with a shoulder that allows the legs to flip 180 ° for an extremely compact folded length ideal when baggage needs to be kept to a minimum.

Series 2, 3 & 5 models are designed around Gitzo’s award-winning modular Systematic shoulder element that allows centre components to be interchanged.  Prices are as follows: Systematic Ocean Ser 2: $2,250.11;  Systematic Ocean Ser 3: $2,425.01; Systematic Ocean Ser 5: $2,850.00.
