SIRUI launch Wave and Wilderness Series Tripod (W-Series)

Anyone that has used a tripod for shooting in harsh environments knows that salt water and dust are the two biggest enemies of mechanical locking mechanisms on a tripod.

SIRUI has engineered an innovative, solution to this otherwise unanswered problem.

The legs employ a set of special seals, preventing the ingress of dust and water. Coupled with the beautifully crafted, CNC cut, forged aluminium casting that SIRUI is famous for, the Wave & Wilderness series can be used submerged to its shoulders in water or in dusty environments while delivering exceptional stability.

Raising the bar for stability even further, SIRUI also re-engineered the carbon fibre tubes used in this new series. Employing new compound technologies, two further layers have been added to create a ten-layer carbon tube, bringing even better levels of rigidity and robustness - a characteristic for which SIRUI is already renowned.

Besides great engineering, extra functionality comes by quickly and easily converting one of the tripod legs to a monopod. Extra height can be added by attaching the patented central column. With no need to remove the head from the main stand, rapid set-up is easily achieved.

SIRUI products are engineered to give many years of use, and the brand recognises that the ability to service and maintain is a key factor in longevity. The Wave & Wilderness series is very easily cleaned after heavy use in harsh environments. All parts are carefully formed and marked to enable disassembly, cleaning and to be put back together quickly. Complete sets of seals and lubricants are available in sets from photo retailers.

Ensuring you have all that you need 'out of the box' The Wave and Wilderness series is supplied with an impressive accessory set as standard. The attached rubber feet are great for use on hard surfaces, while the supplied spikes are perfect for adding traction on softer ground. A protective padded carry bag is also included, as well as a comfortable strap making it easier to carry and take care of your tripod - all extras you would expect to pay for with 'big' brands.

The W Series are available at £599,99 W-1204 and £699.99 W-2204 MSRP in good photo stores, with aluminium versions due to join the range soon.
