SIRUI T-025X tripods come in elegant basic black and have 8 layer carbon fiber legs for added load capacity and stability. Their compact size - only 11.8"(30cm) when folded! - is 20~30% smaller than other similar style tripods. Even though they are compact and lightweight, these impressive tripods can still extend to over 51.4" (130cm) - perfect for most shooting situations. The T-025X can also hold up to 13.2 pounds! Like the professional line of SIRUI tripods, there is no compromise in quality.
