THE LATEST INNOVATION IN CAMERA DOLLIES

The Kessler Shuttle Dolly is the latest innovation in camera dollies and finally provides filmmakers with the performance and versatility dollies in its class have always lacked. The Shuttle Dolly utilizes standard speed rail and can be operated manually or in conjunction with Kessler's motion control solutions - CineDrive, Second Shooter and Second Shooter Plus.

The Kessler Kwik Rail is custom machined threaded speed rail that can be configured into variable lengths for use with Shuttle Dolly and other speed rail compatible dollies on the market today. What makes Kwik Rail unique is that by eliminating the need for connectors or coupling devices to attach two pieces of rail together we’ve eliminated those unnecessary parts that can get lost and introduce more seams to the dolly rail and instead designed Kwik Rail to have the rails themselves threaded. The integrated Kwik Thread™ design makes the connection between rail sections very secure and  incredibly fast, up to four times faster than traditional speed rail - saving time, money and frustration on set.

The Kwik Rail comes in two sizes, 4’ (42.375”) and 2’ (23.875”) and includes aluminum thread protectors that will ensure your threads are not damaged during travel or in-use. The anodized 6061 T6 aluminum schedule 80 pipe used for the Kwik Rail has thicker walls than many other speed rails available, increasing durability and ensuring maximum weight bearing, yet is drastically lighter than traditional steel speed rail. The precision grind on the Kwik Rail is second to none and provides a seamless transition from section to section.

There’s zero question, when you purchase the Kessler Kwik Rail you are getting the absolute highest quality variable length screw together rail available.
