The Strada Easel redefines the portable box easel and simplifies the painting process.
The Strada Easel is made from high quality aluminum metal. With fewer than half the parts of more complicated wooden easels and pochades on the market today, there is less to break down and wear out. It is a simpler, stronger, thinner, portable box easel with a unique self-locking component. The Strada Easel features only one adjustable hand screw, uses two position control hinges to hold the box open at any angle, and has a simplified tripod attachment. These features reduce weight and setup time. Furthermore, there are no parts that protrude from the sides, top and bottom surfaces making it easier to slip in and out of a backpack or carrying case.
The Strada Easel measures 15'"x 11"x 1.5" (39.5cm x 28cm x 4cm), weighs 4 lbs 3 oz (the included, optional plexiglass palette adds 8oz and brings the total weight of the easel up to 4 lbs 11 oz.) and can hold a canvas panel of any size up to a 16" high with an unlimited panel width. The Strada Easel can accommodate a 1/16" and 1/8" canvas panel The stretched canvas adapter package can allow for larger canvases.
