The Ascend-14 tripod Compact Travel Carbon Fiber Tripod is a compact, all-in-one support package. Every detail reimagined for today’s serious adventurer. The ultimate integration of precision engineering and superior performance (and fits in your carry-on).
Our patent-pending integrated center-column design packs smaller.
NEW TRIPOD, SAME RRS STANDARD
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.
Our carbon fiber is produced using a unique weave pattern. This leads to a stronger and stiffer tube, while also staying lightweight.
Sealed twist locks minimize fouling, extend twist lock life and simplify maintenance.
In addition to the pre-installed rubber feet, RRS manufactures two additional types of feet; rock claws and spike feet (sold separately).
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.
Triangular shaped column allows the tripod legs to be closer together when folded, reducing the packed diameter of the tripod.
REMOVABLE 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.
This can be used to hang weight from the bottom of the column in order to increase the tripod's stability.
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.
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.
