Smooth WS2 Ball Coating

Tungsten disulphide (WS2) is one of the smoothest materials known to science. The coating minimises the irritating “stick-slip” (jerky movement) effect. The extremely efficient locking mechanism (patent pending) and the use of hard metal components under and around this smooth ball surface achieve movement with comfortable friction, strong locking with minimum effort, and compact head sizes.

Precise Control

Independent pan lock is available in all 3 models. Friction control is available in GH1382QD and GH3382QD. It functions independently from the ball lock knob, allowing the ball lock to have a short stroke (quick locking).

Perfect Match for Gitzo Tripods

New Gitzo heads have slim, curved forms, aesthetically outstanding with a triangular accent, and matte grey plated steel top casings. Dimensions and colourings are designed to match perfectly with Gitzo’s Traveler and Mountaineer Tripods.

Intuitive Quick
Release System

The plate is locked with a screw-knob, which makes the system compact, light, and intuitive, while being flexible to accept most Arca-Swiss style plates from a wide variety of brands.
