Athlon Optics Shot Show 2019

Athlon is a fast-growing US-based company producing all kind of sports optics. Their products are ranging from an affordable price that is designed for occasional use, all the way up to expensive and professional products. On Shot Show I visited their booth to see the large selection of new and upgraded products.

Athlon presented 3 new binoculars, and one of them even has a built-in laser rangefinder. The new binoculars are designed for different purposes and because of that, they have different magnification ranges and objective lens diameters.

  • Cronus 15×56 – for detailed observation of targets at great distances
  • Cronus 10×50 LRF – Binocular with an integrated laser rangefinder that works up to 2000 yards (1830 meters) on reflective targets and up to 800 yards (730 meters) on deer-size targets
  • Midas 10×25 – very small pocket binoculars that are easy to carry around and are not too big to store them in your backpack
