flowtech100 by Sachtler and Vinten is a versatile, lightweight tripod that is easier and faster to deploy and adjust than any other tripod. Performance tested in extreme conditions, flowtech100 is a revolution in tripod technology, giving the camera operator ultimate versatility and improving their workflow. flowtech100 is a revolutionary set of two-stage carbon fibre tripod legs with quick release brakes, a mid-level spreader, rubber feet and a payload capacity of 30kg (66lb).

Deploy and adjust your tripod in an instant.

flowtech features unique quick release brakes located at the top of the tripod that allow camera operators to easily deploy and adjust the tripod in an instant. All the legs of the tripod can be deployed simultaneously and can quickly adjust to the height that you need and the ground’s surface – eliminating the need to bend over or manually adjust multiple brakes on each individual leg.

Lightweight and easy to transport

Carbon fibre profile makes flowtech100 lightweight and easy to transport. It’s ergonomically designed to comfortably rest on the camera operator’s shoulder while magnetic locks offer an easy, quick method for locking the legs together during transport. Exceptional torsional stiffness ensures that the tripod doesn’t twist during panning movements.

Capture extremely low and high shots.

flowtech comes with a hinge lock mechanism that gives camera operators ultimate versatility. With the ability to be used with or without a spreader. The hinge lock allows the flowtech100 to be deployed as low as 26 cm (10.2in) and as high as 155 cm (61in) when used without a spreader. This effectively eliminates the need to bring a second set of baby legs to each shoot.

Performance Tested

Tested in the most punishing environments, flowtech excels in sludge, sand and extreme temperatures. Tried in over 30,000 lab-testing cycles – in which the tripod is repeatedly deployed – and 1.5 million clamp operations on the test endurance rig, flowtech surpasses Sachtler and Vinten’s stringent performance targets.


The flowtech100 dolly features an integral carry handle and foot-operated brakes for smooth and easy operation, while its foldable design allows it to collapse to a compact and easy-to-transport unit. Weighing in at just 4.7 kilograms, the dolly can support a payload of 40 kg and a build radius of 53 centimetres.

The flowtech100 carry handle allows customers to carry their flowtech system securely in one hand and attaches easily to one of the three flowtech accessory docks, making the tripod even more versatile and portable than ever.
