Riviera Classic Tripod
Inspired by old camera design, Riviera Classic is the only
tripod to combine leather and wood elegance with aluminum sturdiness in a
Incredibly stable and extremely stylish, with metal
tightening dials similar to those found on antique manual cameras, Riviera
Classic is the tripod that was missing to affirm the neo retro look of current
Although traditional in its approach, Riviera Classic
nevertheless provides all the features of a modern tripod: telescopic sections,
reversible central column, multi-actions head, ergonomic wooden tightening
handle, lockable angles etc.
Made of Iroko wood, known for its exceptional durability,
and hand crafted by Atelier Farol at La Rochelle, France, the Riviera Classic
handle has been designed to provide optimal control. Over time, and upon usage,
the wood patina will make it even more unique.
Covered with a material similar to that found on premium
camera bodies, the Riviera Classic leather-inspired sections are both elegant
and delightful to handle. Once opened, they reveal the brilliance of brushed
aluminum, contrasting with the tripod body. Each section ends with a high
density nonslip rubber cap insuring the best support on all types of field.
Every detail has been carefully thought out, right down to
the tightening dials of the Riviera Classic, inspired by the ones found on
retro cameras. Made of knurled aluminum, they offer an excellent grasp in order
to precisely adjust sections and central column.
Cokin has brought the same care in the making of the soft
pouch that comes with Riviera Classic, made of leather-inspired and hessian
fabric. The cord is robust and comfortable, to carry it anywhere, with style.
