In their own words

At Kite Optics, a Belgian family run company, we have been working on the development of high-precision optical instruments for nature observation since 1992. 

The optical characteristics of the Kite Lynx HD+ range are truly unique and a result of state of the art engineering. 

Design

The Kite Lynx HD+ is VERY compact, even by the typical standards of 30/32mm objective binoculars. The weight is also a big plus as there is so little of it, at just 495 grams. A magnesium body keeps this weight in check and leads to a robust product. 

The quality of materials are of a good enough standard for a £500 category binocular, without feeling truly premium.  The build quality is also as you would expect of a Japanese binocular with nicely damped focusing. 

Overall this is a stylish and well built compact binocular. 

Optics

In a competitive market the Lynx HD+ stands out above binoculars in the class below. The image is sharp to the edges while specific coatings on the lenses and prisms mean that light intake is also very good. It also benefits by being one of only a few 30/32mm binoculars around £500, so its direct competitors aren’t as numerous as in the £350-£400 market. 

The excellent optics are backed up with a huge field of view of 151 metres at 1000 metre range, again a class leading figure. 

Conclusion

Kite Optics may not carry the market share of Hawke, Opticron, and others but the Lynx HD+ is definitely the stand out model in their range. It combines great value with strong performance and a 30 year warranty. We highly recommend it.
