With the help of our customers' invaluable feedback, we have made our most compact and versatile adventure-tripod yet.

The Ascend-14 tripod with ballhead is a compact, all-in-one support package. The 14L—which provides an extended working height while still being compact enough when collapsed to easily fit in a backpack.

Every detail reimagined for today’s serious adventurer. The ultimate integration of precision engineering and superior performance (and fits in your carry-on).

COMPACT

Our patent-pending integrated center-column and head design packs smaller.

NEW TRIPOD, SAME RRS STANDARD

ALUMINIUM

All aluminum components are CNC-machined from T6061 aluminum stock and type-2 anodized to protect against wear.

VENTED CLEVIS & MAGNETIC PULL-TABS

The air vents prevent pressure gradients from building up, allowing smoother leg extraction and collapse.

CARBON FIBER

Our carbon fiber is produced using a unique weave pattern. This leads to a stronger and stiffer tube, while also staying lightweight.

TWIST LOCKS

Sealed twist locks minimize fouling, extend twist lock life and simplify maintenance.

FEET

In addition to the pre-installed rubber feet, RRS manufactures two additional types of feet; rock claws and spike feet (sold separately).

INTEGRATED BALL HEAD

Everything you love about our ball heads and panning bases in one versatile head.

PANNING BASE

Independent panning on top of the ball head allows quick leveling and smooth, accurate pans.

NESTING BALL HEAD

With the center-column collapsed, the 22mm ball nests into the apex for reduced total length and enhanced stability.

HEX KEY STORAGE

A custom compact hex key stows elegantly in the clamp for convenient access anytime

RRS QUICK-RELEASE CLAMP

Lever-operated quick-release system securely clamps onto 1.5" RRS standard dovetails.

OPTIONAL PLATFORM

Alternatively, a platform-only option is available to those who would like the ability to screw on a separate head.

ADAPTABLE QUICK-COLUMN

Benefit from the added height without the ground-level limitations of a typical quick-column. Simply detach, flip, and lock to get that ground-level shot.

COMPACT SHAPE

Triangular shaped column allows the tripod legs to be closer together when folded, reducing the packed diameter of the tripod.

REMOVEABLE LOWER SECTION

The lower section of the quick-column can easily be removed without tools in order to lower the tripod to ground level. It can also be removed for a lighter setup.

WEIGHT HOOK

This can be used to hang weight from the bottom of the column in order to increase the tripod's stability.

SAFETY STOPS

When shooting underneath the tripod or quickly moving from location to location, the safety stop will keep your gear from accidentally falling to the ground. It can easily be turned on or off by the user.

RAPID LOCK

The height of the column can quickly be adjusted by the lever actuated locking system.

Included with the Ascend-14 is our attention to detail, top-quality craftsmanship, and commitment to proudly make and hand-assemble all our tripods in the USA.
