EIGHT LAYERS OF CARBON FIBRE FOR SUPERIOR LOADING CAPACITY
Sirui is one of the few manufacturers who make their own carbon fibre leg tubes. The use of 100% carbon fibre and eight cross-pattern layers make Sirui tripods and monopods capable of supporting impressive loading capacities while providing a lightweight product. In addition to providing high strength and low weight, carbon fibre is also highly resistant to temperature changes, friction (no need for lubrication) and corrosion.
TEMPERATURE TOLERANCE TEST
Photographers often work in extreme environments, such as blazing deserts or sub-zero mountaintops. It is vital that their equipment works under these harsh conditions. This is why we torture-test all of our products Under conditions that far exceed what most people will ever experience (-40 c ~ 100 c / -104 f ~ 212 f) Sirui is the first Chinese manufacturer to continuously perform the 4-hour test on all tripod, monopod, and ball head models.
FORGING PROVIDES GREATER STRENGTH AND REDUCED WEIGHT
Instead of using traditional casting technology that is typical of tripod construction, Sirui is a pioneer who adopted the forging technique in manufacturing the full line of tripods. During the forging process, the deformation and recrystallization of metal causes its structure to be more welded together and compact Greatly increasing its strength-to-weight ratio. This allows Sirui to build products with exceptional strength and durability that are surprisingly lightweight.
In addition, forging secures the integrity of metallic fibres so that they remain consistent inside and out. Good integrity allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance. In fact, the forging process can create parts that are stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.
CUSTOM ANODIZED SURFACE TREATMENT
All Sirui products undergo a special anodized surface treatment that makes all metal surfaces highly resistant to wear and enhance its durability, surface hardness and corrosion resistance. Anodizing is an environmentally safe electrochemical process to increase the thickness of the natural oxide layer on the surface of metal parts.
CERTIFIED LONGEVITY TEST
in order to ensure the quality and reliability of Sirui products and our dedication to details, the leg angle lock spring mechanism is subjected to exhaustive longevity tests by the SGS testing tab. The test reports showed that the springs continued to perform perfectly even after 100,000 actuations.
All Sirui products come with a 6-year manufacturer's warranty against defects. A warranty card is included with each product.
