Product Description

The Gitzo Rapid Column GS5513S is a carbon fiber center column that is made to be used with Gitzo Series 5 Systematic tripods. Adding a Gitzo Rapid Column to your tripod is a great option for when you need additional height and height adjustment.

Why You’ll Love the Gitzo Rapid Column GS5513S

  • Rapid functionality allows you to make quick vertical adjustments by twisting the collar and pushing the column up or down. After you’ve reached the height you’d like, use the disc-lock equipped collar to securely lock the column in place.
  • Gitzo Rapid Column slides freely and quickly in the tripod shoulder and is locked and unlocked via a simple twist mechanism, offering the same strength and solid locking under heavy loads.
  • Safety catch feature prevents the column from dropping out of the tripod even if it is inadvertently left unlocked (when used together with recent Systematic tripods with a safety button).
  • Ballast hook mounted on the bottom can be used for adding additional weight to stabilize your set up if necessary.
  • GS5513S replaces the GS5512S, featuring the latest components including solid upper disc and hook.
  • Native height of 19.3″ (35.02 cm) which includes 13.8″ (35.02 cm) of travel distance from the maximum to minimum height.
  • Weighs only 1.4 pounds (0.63 kg)
