The Kite Optics aluminum tripod Ardea AL is a professional all-round tripod. It is a user and budget friendly birdwatching tripod that is easy to travel with. Despite its light weight of only 1.4 Kg (legs only), the tubes are still large enough to offer very rigid support to heavy optical instruments.

The Kite Ardea AL, weighing 2.2 Kg with head fitted and extends to 160 cm, offering comfortable viewing for taller users. The very durable twist locks offer excellent grip, and as an advantage over conventional flip locks, twist locks are faster to operate and do not get stuck behind branches or bushes in the field. They also allow the user to easily disassemble the legs for cleaning and maintenance.

Supplied complete with the Manfrotto 128RC head and 200PL quick release plate.

A wide array of heads and other accessories can easily be added via the 1/4″ and 3/8″ attachment on the upper disc.
