100% Carbon Fiber Tubes For The Tripod Legs
To reduce the weight of the tripod without any compromises on performance, stability and rigidity, Manfrotto tubes are made of 100% Carbon Fiber. Carbon fiber tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fiber material present in the tubes. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fiber and the pull winding technology (a special production process that maximizes performance, resistance and reliability.

Magnesium and Aluminum Die Castings
Lightweight magnesium is used for many die-cast parts. Magnesium has a 35% lower density than aluminum. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.

The 055CXV3 incorporates the new three-layered rounded 100% Full Carbon Tubes for improved rigidity and lightness.
Three-Faceted Aluminum Center Column
