Steinert Sensing Systems NeoPod

The NeoPod from Steinert Sensing Systems presents the market with a superlatively light bipod that can be affixed aboard a wide variety of firearm designs thanks to a series of compatible adapters, making it a great, if expensive, option for those outdoor treks where minimizing weight is a priority.

Weighing less than 3 ozs., the unit’s legs—constructed from a carbon-fiber-reinforced thermoplastic polymer that weighs half as much as aluminum yet has the same tensile strength as stainless steel—are secured to each other via magnets when stowed, yet can be instantly deployed with one hand. Each leg features a deployment button that automatically extends the leg to its full height, but the length of each support can then be manually adjusted to any of 11 different settings.

The adapatable NeoPod is quick to use, deploying in mere seconds, and the unit’s built-in 20-degrees of left and right cant assists shooters with adapting to uneven terrain while providing a lightweight foundation to hunt and shoot off of. Steinert Sensing Systems provides its quick-detach spigot mount that aims to reduce the rifle’s center of gravity once mounted. Universal sling stud adapters are available and allow the spigot-mounted bipod to work with nearly any modern rifle. The NeoPod Ultralight Bipod commands an MSRP of $755.
