Kite Optics

Kite Lynx HD+ Binoculars



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 color rendition and wide angle views that no other binoculars will match. The excepetional 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 therfor 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.

We will buy or part-exchange your cameras, lenses, accessories, spotting scopes and binoculars.

We are able to give you a rough price - however we will need to see your gear to give you a final price.

The market fluctuates rapidly and there are a number of considerations we have to make when purchasing equipment from our customers. Our prices undoubtedly are less than you would get if you were to sell privately. The reason for this is, when we sell them to a customer we have to provide a warranty - and with growing costs for repairs this has to be a key consideration.

We’ll always offer as fair a deal as possible and are happy to negotiate or in some instances offer a commission sales basis.

To enquire about selling or part exchanging any items, please complete our online form and ensure you select 'Selling / Part Exchange' within the enquiry type dropdown. 

Get in touch!

Many thanks, Justin
