Kenro has launched four travel tripods and a monopod, the first under its own brand name

Billed as ‘lightweight’, there are two entry-level tripods and two professional models – all built from magnesium aluminium-alloy – plus a monopod, constructed from titanium-alloy.

Three of the four tripods can be converted into monopods, as the central column pops out and attaches to one of the legs.

Kenro managing director Paul Kench said: ‘We looked at various options for new tripod ranges, but decided that, rather than distributing another agency range, we had sufficient product knowledge to put together our own offering.’

Kench added: ‘The initial launch of five products is one that we will be expanding on in the forthcoming months and years.’

Prices for the new kit start from around £60.
