3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod

Back to top
The X1.1a Adrian Evolution 2 Tripod System has been built to withstand loads up 8kg. With its unique aircraft grade T6061 Magnesium Alloy 5 section legs and removable centre column Adrian has one of the lowest shooting capability of any travel tripod in the world, extending from just 125mm all the way to 1.55m. The Adrian Evolution 2 Tripod even features a removable monopod with a standard double-ended threaded bolt giving you the flexibility to use heads with either a 1/4" or 3/8" fit.

Key Features: 3 Legged Thing X1.1a Adrian Evolution 2 Magnesium Alloy Tripod

The X1.1a Adrian is the mag alloy version of our multi-award winning carbon fiber travel tripod system, Brian, but with a few small differences.

Adrian's unique aircraft grade T6061 Magnesium Alloy is so light and so dense, that the weight difference between Adrian and Brian is almost negligable.

Adrian features 5 section legs, with our unique double-break friction lock system, and a single section removable centre column, with mounting points at either end for adding external devices, such as laptop platforms, ipad platforms and flashgun brackets.

Adrian features a removable monopod, and a standard double-ended threaded bolt, to enable devices with both 1/4" and 3/8" fittings. Adrian's legs work at three angles, 23, 55 and 80 degrees, and feature our new smooth-glide leg catches.

The design of the Adrian is such that the tripod, when folded, will easily fit into most hand luggage. The D rings on the bag allow for the bag to be connected to another bag or trolley for easy transportation.
