Revolutionise the way you work with the world’s fastest tripod


The award-winning flowtech™, a versatile, lightweight tripod that is easier and faster to deploy and adjust than any other tripod. Performance tested in extreme conditions, flowtech is a revolution in tripod technology, giving the camera operator ultimate versatility and improving their workflow. flowtech is a revolutionary new set of two-stage carbon fibre tripod legs with quick release brakes, a mid-level spreader and rubber feet. flowtech™75 has a payload capacity of 20kg (44lb), while flowtech™100 supports a heavier payload of up to 30kg (66lb).



Why is flowtech™ award-winning?

Unique quick
release brakes

Deploy and adjust your tripod in an instant.

flowtech features unique quick release brakes located at the top of the tripod that allow camera operators to easily deploy and adjust the tripod in an instant. All the legs of the tripod can 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 individual leg.

New ergonomic carbon-fibre
leg design

Lightweight and easy to transport

Carbon fibre profile makes flowtech™ lightweight and easy to transport. It’s ergonomically designed to comfortably rest on the camera operator’s shoulder while magnetic locks offer an easy, quick method for locking the legs together during transport. Exceptional torsional stiffness ensures that the tripod doesn’t twist during panning movements.

Lightwight & Easy to carry

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 to be deployed as low as 26 cm (10.2in) and as high as 157 cm (61.8in) 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 157 cm (61.8in)

2. Hinge Lock Position - 46°

Medium-Low Mode

3. Hinge Lock Position - 72°

Low Mode

With the third hinge lock position you can go as low as 26 cm (10.2in)

  • Performance Tested


    Tested in the most punishing environments, flowtech excels in sludge, sand and extreme temperatures. Tried in over 30,000 lab-testing cycles – in which the tripod is repeatedly deployed – and 1.5 million clamp operations on the test endurance rig, flowtech surpasses Sachtler and Vinten’s stringent performance targets.
