Sirui T-1005X 5-Section Aluminum Tripod

Note: These are the tripod legs only.  They must be combined with a ballhead (sold separately) to properly function with the STRADA easel.


We searched through hundreds of tripods and the Sirui T-1005X is one of the lightest compact choices for use with the STRADA MINI.  When combined with the Manfrotto 496RC2 ballhead (Sold separately) it provides a lightweight but solid base for your STRADA MINI plein air easel.  Additionally, it comes with a hook from which you can hang your backpack to weigh it down in windy conditions. 

The Sirui T-1005X 5-Section Aluminum Tripod extends to a maximum height of 51.4" and folds down to just 13.4" for easy transport. Weighing only 2.2 lbs, the T-1005X supports loads up to 22 lbs thanks to its relatively thick upper leg sections and forged aluminum construction.

The T-1005X is an excellent travel model due to its light weight and the fact that its legs fold upward to achieve a folded length of only 13.4". That's a figure that won't necessarily grow if you attach a head – the legs extend past the height of many head models that you'll mount, so the entire package stays very compact to fit comfortably in most carry-on bags and backpacks.

Forged aluminum results in stronger components than the traditional casting process that's often used for tripod chassis. Forging leads to more compacted metal and enhances the integrity of metal grains so they remain consistent and continuous. This leads to a longer product life and better performance
An anodizing surface treatment, produced by an electrolytic oxidation process to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts, is applied to increase corrosion & wear resistance and surface hardness, and to enhance color durability
Silicone twist locks for leg stages
Anti-leg rotation system makes setup faster
Automatic leg-angle lock mechanism for speed and convenience – independently lock legs into place at two different angles
