What Makes Sirui Tripods
Forged for Greater Strength and Reduced Weight
Instead of using traditional casting methods typical of tripod construction, Sirui is a pioneer in using forging technology in manufacturing. During the forging process, the deformation and recrystallization of metal causes the structure of the metal to be more welded together and compact - greatly increasing its strength-to-weight ratio. This enables Sirui to build products with exceptional strength and durability, that are surprisingly light. Forging ensures the integrity of metallic fibers so that it remains consistent inside & out. Good integrity allows for a longer lifetime as well as better performance. In fact, the forging process can create parts that are much stronger than those manufactured by any other metalworking process.
8 Layers of Carbon Fiber for Superior Load Capacity
SIRUI is one of the few manufacturers who make their own Carbon fiber leg tubes. The use of 100% carbon fiber and 8 cross pattern layers, makes SIRUI tripods and monopods capable of supporting impressive load capacities, while providing a lightweight product. In addition to providing high strength and low weight, carbon fiber is also highly resistant to temperature changes, friction (no need for lubrication) and corrosion.
Each assembled component of SIRUI Ball Heads is produced by CAM (Computer Aided Manufacturing) - the ultimate in precision manufacturing techniques.
Aviation Grade Aluminum Alloy
SIRUI ball heads are made of aviation quality aluminum alloy 7075-T6 and 6067-T6 for long life and maximum strength.
Sirui Designed Dual Bevel Ball Head Locks
The interior locking system in SIRUI Ball Heads uses SIRUI designed double bevel locks for superior locking performance and reliability. Most ball heads only use a single, less efficient interior locking system.
Patented Safety Lock
The patented safety lock design, and SIRUI quick release plates, effectively prevent the camera from accidentally sliding off of the ball head. And most Arca-compatible quick release plates can be used on SIRUI Ball Heads. (Note: safety lock design not available from other brands).
SIRUI Precision Manufacturing -
SIRUI uses a special manufacturing technique
that produces the support ball with tolerances to within 0.01mm of a perfect sphere. This uncom-promising precision guarantees superior performance and
smooth operation for any type of 35 mm, DLSR, medium or large format camera system.
The panning base is designed with a 360° dial. Having a separate panning base lock knob provides greater accuracy for panning and panoramic shooting.
Separate adjustment knobs
Separate adjustment knobs for panning, friction control and locking, provide maximum control and flexibility.
High Quality Quick Release Plates
All SIRUI TY Series Quick Release Plates are made from forged aluminum alloy. The forging technique produces high-density metals with much greater strength than die-cast methods.
Model Specific Quick Release Plates
When using long lenses or heavy cameras, it is very important to make sure that there is a perfect fit between the camera and quick release plate. For that reason, SIRUI offers a selection of quick release plates for specific types and models of cameras.
