The Leica Ultravid 10×25 BR binoculars combine ruggedness and brightness in a pocket format. The black rubber cladding protects even in the harshest conditions and ensures a total waterproofness up to 5m deep.
The image is extremely bright thanks to the Leica HighLux-System HLS treatment. This innovative system, based on an extremely reflective layer on the prisms and an improved optical and mechanical constitution that significantly reduces the diffuse light, visibly increases the brightness of the image while increasing the contrast. Thus the lived vision is unforgettable.
The Leica AquaDura treatment, a treatment of the external surface of the lenses that significantly improves the comfort of observation. The formation of steam during use is almost impossible, and the cleaning of fingerprints or dust is no more than a breeze. Moisture dries from the surface in the form of water pearls, the vision remains clear. This is possible thanks to the application of a specific process, applied to the surface of the lenses. The origin is the lotus flower whose structure prevents water and dust from settling there. The Leica AquaDura treatment has no adverse influence on the optical quality of the whole, quite the contrary since it reinforces the external protection of the lenses against scratches.
Brighter, sharper, more compact, more functional and more robust than binoculars in their class. No discussion is possible; small compacts meet the optical criteria of the binoculars of the Ultravid series. The use of aspherical lenses makes it possible to obtain a vast field of view, whose image is evident even on the contours and devoid of colored fringes. Also, small Ultravid whose format allows them to slip into the bottom of a pocket, benefit from a close focus very reduced. Almost all the elements used on the standard size Ultravid binoculars were miniaturized and then used on compact models.
This has allowed leica ultravid compact binoculars with 20mm and 25mm lenses to inherit the ruggedness characteristics of the Ultravid series. Thanks to a new vulcanization system, the rubber casing is now inseparable from the metal casing, giving them even greater strength than previous models. The water tightness is guaranteed up to 5 meters deep, the nitrogen injection avoids the formation of internal condensation, and many qualitative accessories are delivered in series.
