BEYOND LIMITS, BEYOND TRADITIONS

The world’s leading combo in optical and ergonomical performance. 

  

The optical characteristics of the KITE LYNX HD + range are truly unique and a result of state of the art engineering. This instrument is conceived to offer a perfectly natural colour rendition and wide angle views that no other binoculars will match. The exceptional wide angle view will allow you to make faster observations and determinations, and will elevate viewing comfort and quality of image perception to unseen levels.  

 

Due to the revolutionary optical system Kite optics has created, the LYNX HD + literally is made to be suited in all conditions and circumstances. This instrument goes beyond the limits of any other binocular and brings you great advantage when observing on both long and short distances. You will see faster on long distances with little points of reference, such as observation of birds in the sky or over sea. You will oversee an increased amount of details and therefore also on shorter distances and in denser areas such as forests, you will have better orientation capability, see faster, and catch the important details out of centre-image that would otherwise be missed.  

 

The LYNX HD + is truly amazing , because in spite of all its optical technology, it is one of the smallest and lightest binoculars ever made. The LYNX HD + 30mm class is that compact, it fits the pockets of your vest. The LYNX HD + 50mm class, that is built for top light performance, is no bigger or heavier than most 42mm binoculars on the market, and offers and equally large field of view. For the first time ever, you can enjoy the amazing high light gathering capabilities of large diameter binoculars, without the traditional downsides such as weight, size and a small field.

 

The LYNX HD + genuinely goes beyond limits, and even beyond traditions.

Almost perfect.

The close focus is really useful, much appreciated for checking the bow on your shoelaces, but the image quality and widest-in-class-by-a-fair-chunk field are the killer features: apparent field of 62.4° (ISO) is so immersive, and the FOV area visible is 30% bigger than the best of the rest of the 8x 30-32-40, yet the overall detail surpasses many 10x optics' sweet spots, while colours and contrast are superb.

Cons? The ergonomics aren't as instinctive and natural as the Swarovski CL companion, the feel isn't as nicely balanced and solid, the Kites being a little bulkier too. The reflection control with near axis stray light isn't as good as on the illustrious CL either, so there might be more ducking and diving for shade sometimes. Perhaps the objectives have slightly too little shading and recess, or maybe some stray light measures inside aren't as effective as they could be? Not bad, but not quite up there with the very best. Maybe another millimeter or so of eye relief would be useful for some, especially spectacle wearers.

Overall, with versatility, IQ and transmission right up there, and that 30 year warranty, these represent a bit of a bargain

Excellent pair of binoculars. Chosen for their very close focus for observing butterflies, they were equally at home birdwatching in the Cairngorms and Moray Coast at Christmas. Highly recommended.
