The X1.1 Brian Evolution 2 is the world's most versatile travel tripod system - that's no small boast from 3 Legged Things, but built to withstand loads up 8kg, the Brian Evolution 2 is stronger than its looks may suggest. With a unique triple section ten-core carbon fibre reversible centre column the X1.1 Brian has one of the lowest shooting capability of any travel tripod in the world, extending from just 125mm all the way to 2.04m.

The X1.1 Evolution 2 Brian Tripod is part of the 3rd generation of tripods from 3 Legged Things, built by photographers for photographers. With a unique triple section ten-core carbon fibre centre column Brian provides functionality beyond the scope of ordinary travel tripods:
Because of the added sections, stability is reduced through the tripod when fully extended. This is why 3 Legged Things have designed Brian so that you can completely remove the column, and mount the head or even your camera directly to the main tripod furniture, gaining back the rigidity required for longer exposures. This enables you to use Brian at just 125mm, when the legs are fully retracted in position 3 (80 degrees), giving Brian one of the largest vertical operating range of any tripod in the world.
Since the launch of our 2nd Geneneration we have listened to your feedback and redesigned many of the critical components to give you a safer, lighter, stronger and more functional tripod system. The new upgrades include:
1: Purer 8 core Stealth Carbon Fiber ™ legs, and unique 10 core Columns - Smoother operation, more lateral and torsional strength.
2: Re-engineered leg mechanisms, for greater stability, smoother and easier use.
3: New Evo 2 Friction Locks with safety double break-point and easy-grip rubbers.
4: Retoned bronze anodizing and triple machined magnesium alloy parts for better camouflage and smoother finish.

About Me Hobbyist/Enthusiast
Comments about 3 Legged Thing X1.1 Brian Evolution 2 Carbon Fibre Tripod:
Ordered a Brian on Saturday and it arrived on Wednesday which was great service using the free post option. I have a large stable tripod which is very good for use if using a car. But for travelling abroad it was too heavy and large to fit in to a suitcase. This Brian is ideal it is just under half the folded length and just over half of the weight. Height of the tripod is not an issue despite folding to a compact size. I am over 6 foot tall and can easily find the ideal shooting heightI have only tried it out in the house but it is ideal and can move to a large number of positions.The tripod is well put together with smooth action of the legs and other moving parts, also one of the legs coverts into monopod.I did not get a ball head with this as I already have one which fits just fineI would certainly recommend these tripods without hesitation
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
