Magnesium castings:Lightweight magnesium is used for die-cast parts. Magnesium has a density of 1.74g/cm3 as opposed to aluminum's 2.70g/cm3 - a 35% reduction. Despite its lower weight, magnesium is more rigid than aluminum, and has the same strength per volume.
Tubes: 100% Carbon Fibre:Manfrotto tubes are made of 100% carbon fibre in order to reach high quality standards and high levels of performance, rigidity and lightness. Carbon fibre tubes can be very different in quality, depending on the production process and the percent of carbon fibre material present in the tubes. Manfrotto chose to reach the maximum quality using 100% carbon fibre and the pull winding technology (a special production process able to maximise performance, resistance and reliability).
