Choosing a tripod can be an overwhelming experience, given how many different types and choices we are presented with. On one hand, a tripod is a very simple tool to keep our cameras steady when we use them in challenging light conditions. On the other hand, there are so many different variables that come into play when choosing a tripod: How tall should it be? How light should it be? How stable should it be? What kind of weight can it support? How much should I spend on a tripod? These are just some of the questions that might come up as you look into buying a new tripod.

Answering all your questions, leofoto has come up with the LA Athena Series which has two stunning and heavy duty tripods that will fulfil your all outdoor tripod needs and indoor as well.

The price of the LA Athena Series tripods ranges from $341.00 USD to $539.00 USD. This price includes shipping and warranty.

 Athena, also called Pallas Athena, she is the Godness of wisdom and war in ancient Greek myth and also one of the twelve Olympians. According to the ancient Greek documents, Athena is stunning, energetic young Godness.
Stunning and Unique, different from traditional black tripod, Athena series features stunning classic red tubes.

Toray 100% 10-layer carbon fiber leg tubes feature cross rhombus structure
for greater strength, stability and less vibration. 

Seawater corrosion is regarded as a "metal eating tiger”. Most of the foot spikes and rubber feet screws on the market are made of stainless steel or aluminum alloy. When photographers shoot sea views, these parts are usually immersed in sea water, which will soon be corroded. Titanium alloy, which has the reputation of "underwater metal’,is the Nemesis of sea water corrosion. Athena Series tripods' foot spikes' rubber feet screws and tube plugs are all made of titanium alloy for sea water corrosion resistant.

The water&sand-proof feature is equivalent to "maintenance-free system", which saves a lot of cleaning and maintenance time for photographers and improves their recording efficiency. At the same time, it can effectively avoid missing the best shooting time when the tripod cannot be used normally due to the intrusion of sand and water.

Three embedded Silica gel mats avoids twisting in water. The 3D wavy design perfectly matches the ocean .

The Athena Series adopts a compact apex design, much smaller than tripods of same maximum tube and height.
Born to be distinctive Completely different from those tripods which with 3 fully folded legs and 1 center column, it features no center column and 3 fully folded legs, which makes the tripod more stable and compact.

Hollow-out top plate design makes the tripod lighter and more flexible. Included 3 set-screws on the top plate to secure the ballhead mounted on the tripod(turn the set-screws upwards with the included allen wrench to secure the ballhead on fop). UNC 1/4" mounting holes on the bottom and side of the leg joint are perfect for magic arms and smartphones.
