3 Legged Thing Legends Bucky & Airhed VU (Bronze)

3 Legged Thing Legends Bucky & Airhed VU (Bronze)

Bucky is a premium travel tripod which is both incredibly portable, yet offers a hugely impressive working height range from ground level up to almost 2 metres tall. Part of 3 Legged Thing’s Legends range, Bucky features not one but three detachable legs which can be used as monopods or boom arms. With the legs removed, Bucky can be used as a table-top tripod by adding a set of 3LT’s tripod footwear.

Bucky is constructed from 8 layers of 100% pure carbon fibre and aerospace-grade magnesium alloy, and has a new design of leg and column locks. Externally new O-Pads give users improved grip, leverage, and water displacement. Internally the locks have been engineered with a new design of Chicken Lips (shims) which give the locks greater strength and grip.

3LT’s Rapid Latch, an anodised metal leg latch with auto-engage lock, is used to open and position Bucky’s legs, and to release them for counter-folding.

Bucky ships with a stunning new Arca-Swiss compatible ballhead – the AirHed Vu, and QR-Octa quick release plate. AirHed Vu features contoured security cut-outs in the detachable clamp, to accommodate security pins in the underside of the QR-Octa plate. AirHed Vu also has a vision panel in the casing allowing uses to see the mechanism move into place.
