The new "OPEN-BRIDGE-SYSTEM" is immediately noticeable, a new bridge connecting the two light clusters that leaves space for the hand and fingers to find a firmer and more articulated grip, even in one-handed mode. Also the external rubber has been improved with a relief texture to allow a more comfortable grip and an excellent grip in any weather situation, thanks also to the water-repellent material used.
The optical unit has also been completely redesigned to bring it closer to the sought-after technical prerogatives of the professional Commander series. In fact, for example, the field of view at 1000 m/h reaches 128 m, against 123 m in the previous series.
Compared with the previous series, the equipment has also been revised, in particular the carrying case, which is more elegant and has a much more ergonomic zipper opening for easier removal of the binoculars.
Even the models with the compass now have additional features. The damping system has been completely revised to ensure better compensation for every movement of the binoculars. In addition, the position of the illumination button has now been placed in a more strategic position to facilitate use in one-handed mode.
Of course, the solutions that have always placed Steiner binoculars in a different category have also been reconfirmed in this new series. Examples of this are the auto-focus function that keeps us away from focal length adjustment for all objects over 20m, the legendary robustness for impacts of up to 11g, the ability to withstand depths of up to 5m and the ability to withstand a wide operating temperature range of -20°C to +70°C.
