Architecture of Benro Travel Angel II Tripods

 

The Travel Angel series is one of the best selling products of Benro, users buy for its short and portable size, as well as its high loading capacity. Here we get the new generation of Travel Angel Tripod, Benro calls it Travel Angel II.

The Travel Angel II is the advanced version from the first generation Travel Angel: in addition to the short folded length property, these features had been added:

  • Advanced Monopod Conversion Capability (with much longer max. height than the previous version)
  • Trekking Pole Conversion Ability

Let’s go more in-depth, here we use C1692TB0 for the demonstration.
