Houston based manufacturer ikan announced a new mid size light weight carbon fiber based slider.
The new Carbon Fiber Camera Slider 31 inch (79 cm) model SLD-31 is the third carbon fiber slider from ikan – a trend which started quite a few years ago in tripods and we are now seeing in sliders as well for reduced weight.
The new thin, light and strong ikan 31 inch slider
- Eight sealed bearings on aluminum rollers
- Lightweight Carbon Fiber Construction (1.5lbs/0.6 kg).
- Supported Camera Weight: 18 lbs/8kg.
- Large Slider Rod Diameter (19mm).
- Level Outrigger legs
- Multiple Threaded Mounts (both 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16).
- Included soft transport case.
- Price: under $180 (on Amazon).
ikan has several types of sliders (some use carbon fiber) including The CSLD01 Curved 1/3 Slider and the CSLD02 Semi Circular 1/2 Slider which we have seen earlier this year.
