SV II: In Touch with Nature
The Kowa SV II Roof prism binoculars infuse over 60 years of heritage in optical design and manufacture and boast superb features such as Kowa Repelling (KR) lens coatings and 100% waterproofing. The SV Series represents the perfect balance between optimal performance and lightweight construction, with one of its most striking attributes being aesthetic beauty and ease of use.
All optical components in the SV II Series are manufactured from high quality eco-glass and all surfaces are fully multicoated. The Roof prisms have also been treated with phase coatings in order to increase their reflectivity. These coatings ensure that light transmission, colour definition, brightness and contrast are always performing at a maximum. The binoculars therefore produce clear, vivid and crisp images, creating natural and representative viewing subjects. The eyepieces and objective lenses are covered in Kowa’s unique formula: Kowa Repelling (KR) technology. The KR technology works to stop grease, fluid and dirt from accumulating on the surface of each treated lens, making cleaning much simpler. Furthermore, the KR technology reduces the risk of scratching a fragile lens surface, as less pressure needs to be applied to remove dirt during cleaning. This type of lens coating is a feature only usually found on far more expensive binocular models.
Comfortable & Ergonomic
The SV II Series incorporates a set of practical features that help to enhance the daily user experience. Kowa has substantially increased the size of the large, centrally-positioned focus wheel, and used an inner grip design to ensure that the wheel responds well to fine-tuned movements. This inner gripping has also been applied to the dioptric adjustment ring, which is conveniently located under the right eyepiece. The next feature is three-click turn and slide eyecups which allow the user to optimise the distance between pupil and eyepiece. These eyecups are also designed to accommodate spectacle wearers, so they too can enjoy a complete field of view. Finally, a centrally positioned tripod socket allows the binoculars (with use of an adapter) to be attached to a tripod. The body is sleek and tactile to hold making use out in the field a fantastic expereince.
Fully Waterproof - Perfect for the Great Outdoors
As well as making the binoculars robust, Kowa have also designed their SV II Series to be fully optimised for use in any climate. Firstly, all body joints and cavities have been fully sealed to make the binoculars 100% waterproof. Kowa engineers have added a final level of climate protection by injecting and sealing each barrel of the binoculars with nitrogen gas. This measure counters any internal fogging of the lenses, a common problem when the binoculars are subjected to varying temperatures.
The SV II are wrapped in extra thick rubber armour, designed to appropriately protect the internal optics from casual knocks and scrapes. Next, a new protective measure: Kowa engineers have proportionately increased the size of the objective lens’ outer armour when compared to other models of this type. This innovative measure helps to act as a buffer, providing an extra layer of protection for the fragile internal lenses.
Lightweight and Easy to use
The body of the binoculars incorporate several natural contours, exaggerated by the surface texture’s variation between soft and granular. The combination of these two design features makes the binoculars feel gratifying in the hand and allows for good grip to always be maintained, whether wearing gloves or in wet conditions. The focus wheel is smooth and responsive and the binoculars can easily be customised to your own viewing requirements with an easy access dioptre adjustment ring.
