DetailsGitzo is celebrating its hundredth anniversary as master of the fine art of photography supports by launching the world’s most exclusive limited-edition travel kit, the ARSÈNE GITZHOVEN EDITION.
The new Arsène Gitzhoven Edition takes its name from the visionary founder who created the company in 1917. This extraordinary new tripod kit establishes an entirely new paradigm, combining technical perfection, exquisite, iconic design and transcendent functional art.
It is available worldwide in a very exclusive limited edition of 100 pieces, each bearing a number from 1/100 to 100/100 laser engraved on the tripod leg and featuring an engraving of its owner’s signature.
The Arsène Gitzhoven Edition kit is the very first model on the market to feature a full carbon fibre spider, making this tripod significantly lighter. With its striking, deep matte black finish and elegant new design from head to foot, this work of art redefines tripod aesthetics.
The Arsène Gitzhoven has Gitzo’s latest Traveler Series 1 technological features, including state of the art Carbon eXact tubing for superior strength and stiffness in a slimmer size and 180° leg folding mechanism for the ultimate strength, which enables its legs to reverse-fold around the center column and the head. It also features the Traveler G-lock mechanism, specifically designed to ensure security in reduced size, making the tripod compact, strong and ergonomic, together with a brand-new Center Ball Head which comes from the Series 1 Traveler, the slimmest tripod head in the Gitzo professional tripod head range. This head model features independent pan lock. It provides uncompromising ball smoothness and is constructed with high-quality, high-resistance steel and aluminium components. The Ball Head is supplied with a short, Arca-Swiss compatible plate and is also perfect with all Gitzo D profile plates. Its quick-release plate is kept locked with a screw-knob and a bubble level helps photographers keep a straight horizon. The Arsène Gitzhoven Edition center ball head is perfectly balanced and versatile, engineered to ensure the ultimate smoothness and precision of movement and secure locking.
Moreover, the limited-edition tripod features an ergonomic strap made of genuine Italian leather with a carbon fibre look, for extreme comfort in use.
The Arsène Gitzhoven Edition kit is presented in a highly refined, white branded chest with leather detailing containing the tripod and its accessories, the tripod’s certificate of authenticity signed by Gitzo’s CEO, and includes a hang tag with the name of the craftsman who created each specific piece.
