The SO-282C is the first-ever inverted tripod in the Leofoto line. Weighing only 1.5 kg yet capable of supporting 25 kg. Our SO Series Inverted Tripod is the perfect choice for full-sized firearm combos, needed for rock-solid support of full-length rifle chassis, extreme spotting scopes, and large-format surveillance equipment. While being incredibly lightweight makes them easy to carry and use. The 28mm model will be a favorite among competition shooters, predator hunters, and newer flat-range hobbyists. The 28mm with its inverted legs, make the twist lock mechanism faster and intuitive for the timed shooter. While staying out of the mud for the predator hunter, and removing unneeded twist-locks/rubber over-molds/etc for the new shooter looking for a higher quality yet affordable tripod.
The SO series adopts a compact apex design, much smaller than tripods of the same maximum tube and height.
New twist locks with integrated wipers keep particles out of the locking mechanism, providing better resistance to the elements.
New inverted legs increase rigidity while relocating the twist locks to an easier-manipulated area while putting the locks further away from harsh outside elements.
Toray 100% 10-layer carbon fiber leg tubes feature a cross rhombus structure for greater strength, stability, and less vibration.
