Vinten have made a break-through in tripod innovation by designing a product that provides 58% more rigidity than other product on the market.

The tripod gets its strength from unique “channel” sections of a carbon/glass composite that enables these legs to out-perform the traditional twin tube design. This revolutionary new concept brings with it not only unrivalled rigidity, but also a number of clever yet practical user benefits.
The tripod is both lightweight and robust due to the composite carbon fibre leg material, this satisfying the most crucial demands of professional cameramen in both news, current affairs, documentaries and many other applications.
With exceptional rigidity, Fibertec is noticeably more stable when using high levels of drag or long lenses, providing three times less backlash than other products on the market. The Spread-Loc mid-level spreader goes further to increase stability and flexibility in all working environments i.e. small spaces, uneven ground, staircases etc and aids quick deployment requiring just two tripod legs to be opened, as the third is driven automatically.

Fibertec’s lever action clamps are positioned adjacent to each other (at the top of their respective Stages) optimising control of set-up and breakdown. The flush design of the low effort clamps ensure more secure locking, whilst minimising the risk of catching cables or breakages and most importantly reducing set-up time.

The system is much faster having two locks on each leg side by side. I think the new design is about 3 times faster to erect to full height than my current tripod, and of course de-mount is just as quick

I love how the system all clips together at the base of the legs, you can kick it together to lock it saving time and effort
The mid level spreader is excellent, the individually extendable legs give me great flexibility in my work
Sky News Cameramen, London

This system is very robust and is capable of operating well in varying climates and terrain’s around the world. It offers great versatility giving the operator more freedom to be creative. Fibertec’s features along with its extra rigidity provide the reassurance required by cameramen to forget about their kit and concentrate on capturing that all-important image.
Vinten invite you to stand 11.520 at IBC 2002 to experience this for yourselves.
