IBIS ED

Binoculars

ERGONOMIC DESIGN

The Ibis ED is not just an upgrade of the previous Ibis model.
Besides the optical system, the entire construction of the binoculars has been redesigned.
At first sight, most striking is the implementation of the open-bridge which contributes to the usage comfort. As always, the rubber armor is designed to provide maximum grip.
Also new are the twist-up eyecups which the user can now easily clean himself. If necessary the user can also easily replace the eyecups by new ones himself, as Kite always provides new eyecups to its customers free of charge.
But most important are of course the improvements on optical performance. The newly developped optical system shows clear improvement in edge and center sharpness, colour reproduction and brightness. One of the contributors to these results are the ED lenses that the new Ibis now features.
To put it short… The Ibis was already a fantastic pair of binoculars, but now climbs up to an even higher level.
