KEY FEATURES
 
Our award-winning engineers applied the science of equipment design to bring you flowtech™75, a revolution in tripod technology.
 
Unique quick release brakes - Deploy and adjust your tripod in an instant.
Located at the top of the tripod, the quick release brakes enable the legs to be deployed simultaneously and can quickly adjust to the height that you need and the ground’s surface - eliminating the need to bend over or manually adjust multiple brakes on each leg.
 
Performance Tested
flowtech was tested in the most punishing environments, from sludge and sand to extreme temperatures. Tried in over 30,000 lab-testing cycles – in which the tripod is repeatedly deployed – and 1½ million clamp operations on the test endurance rig, flowtech exceeds the Sachtler and Vinten brands’ stringent performance targets.
 
New foot mechanism and 3/8“ threads
flowtech’s new quick attach and release foot mechanism enables users to easily adapt to the grounds surface. You no longer have to struggle to snap the feet on and off. flowtech´s tripod bowl has 3 x 3/8“ threads which can be used for attaching a magic arm or the flowtech attachment mount to hang a bag, battery pack or an optional carrying strap.
 
New ergonomic carbon-fibre leg design
The distinct, ergonomically designed, carbon fibre profile makes flowtech 75 lightweight and easy to transport. It’s specifically designed to allow the tripod to comfortably rest on the camera operator’s shoulder while magnetic locks offer an easy, quick method for locking the legs together while carrying.
 
Versatile Hinge Lock - Capture extremely low and high shots.
flowtech comes with a hinge lock mechanism that gives camera operators ultimate versatility. With the ability to be used with or without a spreader. The hinge lock allows the flowtech 75 to be deployed as low as 26 cm (0.85 ft.) and as high as 153 cm (5.02 ft.) when used without a spreader. This effectively eliminates the need to bring a second set of baby legs to each shoot.
1. Hinge Lock Position - 20° - Normal Mode: With the first Hinge Lock Position you can go as high as 153 cm (5.02 ft.) and use it as a usual tripod, just without a spreader.
2. Hinge Lock Position - 46° - Medium-Low Mode: With the Medium-Low mode you can capture…
3. Hinge Lock Position - 72° - Low Mode: With the third Hinge Lock Position you can go as low as 26 cm (0.85 ft.) ffectively eliminates the need to bring a second set of baby legs to each shoot.
 
Extensive endurance and environmental testing - Superior performance and reliability.
Tested in the most punishing environments, flowtech excels in sludge, sand and extreme temperatures. Furthermore, with 30,000 deployment cycles and 1.5 million clamp operations on an endurance rig flowtech surpasses Sachtler and Vinten’s stringent performance targets.
