Sirui TX-Series tripods – designed with the traveler in mind.
Whether you’re traveling down the street, across the country or around the world, keep you eyes open! As photographers we’re always looking for that next great image.
There are times when you can’t get close to your subject, or need to be at a specific distance for the proper perspective. At these times, only a telephoto lens will do the job. And for critical alignment, fast handling and maximum sharpness, a Sirui tripod and ball head is a must!!
For traveling photographers, the biggest problem is having a tripod when they need it! That’s why Sirui created the TX-Series of tripods.
For easy storage and transport, Sirui TX tripods can fold as small as 13.4 in. (34cm) – about the size of a 2L water bottle – and weigh as little as 1.8 lb (0.8kg)!! But don’t let their compact size fool you! They can handle heavy loads!
You can easily fit a Sirui TX tripod into a backpack, camera bag or carry-on luggage! You no longer have the excuse that you didn’t bring a tripod – “because it’s too big!!”
The TX Series tripod has a uniquely designed leg mechanism that lets you to move the legs up 180°. This allows the tripod to be folded significantly smaller than comparably sized tripods with conventional leg designs. Simply depress the leg angle lock and invert the legs 180°. An added advantage is that you can keep a ball head on the tripod and it will still fit in the compact case.
1. The ideal tripod for travelers – full-sized, but folds down small
2. Legs fold up 180° for extra compactness
3. The center column can be inverted for unusual low angle shots
4. 3 position leg angle for uneven terrain
5. For speed and convenience, each leg has an automatic leg angle lock mechanism
6. Short center column is supplied for low angle or macro shooting
7. Your choice of economical aluminum or lightweight carbon fiber
8. TX 2 Series has retractable spiked feet for outdoor photography
It’s in the details!!
Forging provides greater strength and reduced weight
Instead of using traditional casting technology that is typical of tripod construction, Sirui is a pioneer who adopted the forging technique in manufacturing. During the forging process, the deformation andrecrystallization of metal causes the structure of the metal to be more welded together and compact – greatly increasing its strength-to-weight ratio. This allows Sirui to build products with exceptional strength and durability, that are surprisingly light.
Forging ensures the integrity of metallic fibers so that it remains consistent inside & out. Good integrity allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance. In fact, the forging process can create parts that are stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.
The added strength of forging allows thinner, lighter components. Thicker parts are required to provide the needed strength in cast components.
8 layers of carbon fiber for superior load capacity
SIRUI is one of the few manufacturers who make their own Carbon fiber leg tubes. The use of 100% carbon fiber and 8 cross pattern layers, makes SIRUI tripods and monopods capable of supporting impressive load capacities, while providing a lightweight product. In addition to providing high strength and low weight, carbon fiber is also highly resistant to temperature changes, friction (no need for lubrication) and corrosion.
Solid, reliable twist leg locks
To lock their tripod legs, Sirui utilizes twisting locks for maximum reliability and stability. Simply twist the rubber leg locks 1/2 turn and the precision-built legs will extend by themselves!
Grooved center column
The center column has keyed, grooved channels, that prevent the center column from twisting – providing additional stability and safety for your photographic equipment.
Temperature Tolerance Test
Photographers often work in extreme environments, such as blazing deserts or sub-zero mountaintops. It is vital that their equipment works under these conditions. That is why we torture-test all of our products – under conditions that far exceed what most people will ever experience (-40° ~ 100°C/-40° ~ 212°F). SIRUI is the first Chinese manufacturer to continuously perform the 4-hour test on all tripod, monopod and ball head models.
Certified Longevity Tests For Quality & Reliability
In order to confirm the quality and reliability of SIRUI tripods (and our dedication to details), an independent testing lab (SGS) subjected the leg angle lock spring mechanisms to exhaustive longevity tests. The test reports showed that even after 100,000 actuations, the springs continued to perform perfectly!
As the above shows, Sirui TX professional tripods provide the compact portability needed while traveling, without compromise in quality or stability! As with all Sirui professional photographic products, Sirui TX-Series Professional Tripods come with Sirui’s 6 year warranty!
