Perfect Travel Monopod
“I looked high and low for any other monopod that would collapse to a compact size, be light weight and have the strength to work with larger lenses. This was the only good solution I could come up with and it really is perfect. Worth every penny. If you need a monopod to take on a motorcycle or throw in a suitcase this is the one.” – By S. Faulk
Awesome travel monopod; note the short height though
“Superb quality, light and compact. Make sure the height will work for you; it is a bit shorter than the non-travel monopods. I use a Bogen swivel head to raise the camer a few inches and that works for me (I’m 5’10″).” – By Pete Stoppani “pstoppani”
“This monopod is a Series-2 meaning it is only recommended to use with a max 200mm (300mm limit) lenses. I have used this fully extended with the previously mentioned lenses at apertures of f/2.8 (big glass) and results are perfect. Very stable and amazing vibration resistance despite its size. Worth every penny when used properly. If you are using glass larger than 300mm get the Series-5 equivalent and you wont regret it. “ – By Etienne Otero “TurboFX”
“I took this lovely monopod around the world last year and left it in the hire car in London, just before leaving on the last but one leg of the journey. On returning home I immediately bought another – it’s just that good. Superb Gitzo quality and finish. Light weight but solid. Packs down to a good size for travelling. I also have a Gitzo tripod. If I needed another type it would still be Gitzo for the quality and ease of use. And no, I don’t work for them – just a very satisfied customer.” – By Aussie Reader

Gitzo GM2560T Features & Specifications
The Traveler Monopod is a 6 Section, 2 series monopod. It is the first monopod to feature Gitzo’s ALR locking system and it is also the FIRST Carbon 6X monopod.
New 6X Carbon Fiber Technology
The existing 1.5mm Gitzo carbon fiber tube wowed the world with its unsurpassed strength, stability and remarkable lightweight form factor. Utilizing a three-crossed multilayer carbon structure, bonded together at high pressure and temperature by high quality resins, Gitzo was able to offer professionals a carbon fiber tube that proved to be the ultimate in vibration absorption, strength and stability.
Tapping into its revolutionary resources and utilizing its unmatched experience with composite materials, Gitzo was able to develop a new, six-crossed multilayer 1mm carbon fiber 30 percent lighter than the previous generation that features the same exceptional performance of stability and vibration absorption and unbeatable quality.
Backing Gitzo 6X technology is the new six-crossed multilayer range which features the Anti Leg Rotation (ALR) system. The ALR system allows for a fast and smooth setup, yet maintains the uncompromised locking strength of the traditional Gitzo twist lock system. Just loosen all twist locks at the same time and pull down the leg before tightening them, making setup a mere 15 seconds for this four sectioned tripod.

* The lightest and most compact travelling mate
