Slim, ergonomic and comfortable
New twist-up eyecups offer a choice of four positions allowing the user to set the desired eye relief for maximum viewing comfort and make the full field of view available for eye-glass wearers. The unique eye-cups made of skin friendly silicon have fold down flaps on the side to block side light. In its class SkyHawk 3.0 has a larger-than-average field of view at 1000m, ensuring a good overview. With a close focus range of 2 metres the SkyHawk 3.0 series provides great observation opportunities even at closest distance. The progressive styling of the XXL focus wheel makes SkyHawk 3.0 easy to use and focus with or without gloves and in any weather conditions.
Protection of the optics is raised way above the standard by use of a new premium high-tech polymer housing. The new material provides higher and lasting precision in optics adjustment, increased corrosion resistance and higher torsional stiffness compared to materials used in other binoculars. Improved resistance against chemicals and corrosion is another positive side effect of the new material protecting the binocular against the harshest environmental conditions. Nitrogen pressure filling with Steiner's unique two-way-valve technology prevents the valuable binocular optics from fogging on the inside and make it water pressure proof to 1 metre. Full rubber armouring with imbedded recessed thumb rests ensures a secure grip regardless if wet or dry as well as perfect balance.
