Urban Range

The Urban range incorporates the best of Leofoto’s tech and design to offer a travel-oriented range of tripods for those who can’t live without a center-column. Urban tripods feature reversible legs, which allow the column to be stowed between the legs for a compact folded size and is paired with the lightweight XB range of ballheads. This results in 4-section tripods that extend high enough for tall people, but fold down to a very small size and weigh very little. The small 1-series equivalent LX-324CT measures just 45cm when folded, but extends to 135cm without using the column and weighs just 1380g with the head included.

Lightweight Apex Design - Urban tripods feature a minimalist apex machined from aircraft grade aluminium. There is a UNC ¼” mounting hole for Leofoto’s Am range of magic arms for connecting accessories like smartphone holders, gopros or speedlights. The legs attach via stainless steel hinge shafts and brass bushings to a machined aluminium hinge chassis – premium materials you won’t see on many tripods in the market today.

Center Column - The center column has a hook at the bottom for attaching a weight in windy conditions and features a standard 3/8” screw at the top. It can be removed and replaced with the included shorter column for ground level shooting. 

Reversible Legs - What sets the Urban range apart from the rest is legs that can flip 180 degrees upwards. This allows the center-column to be stowed between the legs, reducing the folded length by about 20%. 

Premium Japanese Carbon Fiber - Leofoto uses 10x layer cross-weave carbon fiber tubes made by Toray Inc – one of the world’s top carbon fiber manufacturers. This ensures strength and rigidity, while ensuring class-leading weight specifications. The hinges feature self-returning angle-selectors, a small feature that speeds up operation. All Ranger tripods offer leg angles of 23, 55, 85 and 180 degrees. 

Uncomplicated Joints – All tripod ranges feature fat joints with prominent ribbing to provide great grip and torque for easy loosening and tightening of the joints. One of Leofoto’s proprietary features is a single-piece joint-shim (the shim helps legs to lock together more firmly and prevents the legs from being able to rotate within each other); those who have opened up a twist-joint tripod and seen parts fly will know the frustration of disassembling and reassembling those delicate internal components. All Leofoto tripods feature a one-piece shim, which makes maintenance and cleaning of the joints much easier. 

Beveled Aluminium Core Feet – A tripod foot is just a piece of rubber, right? Think again! Most manufacturer’s tripod feet are just a steel spike encased in rubber – this makes it heavy and allows a lot of flex/vibration in the malleable rubber. Leofoto’s engineers have gone to great lengths to make the ultimate tripod foot and the result is an internal aluminium frame that minimizes the amount of flexible rubber in the construction. While this is a tiny detail, it adds to the rigidity of the tripod. All Leofoto ranges’ feet feature a multi-angled bevel, which helps it to grip on uneven terrain. All Leofoto tripods also include a set of spiked feet for shooting on ice or slippery rocks.
