Maven is a relatively new face on the market, founded in the USA in 2013. The company manufactures various sports optics, including binoculars, riflescopes, monoculars, spotting scopes, and their accessories. As they put it, Maven broke the mold when they introduced high-performance optics into the market.
Just like all Maven products from this series, the C1 10x42 binoculars are coated with scratch and oil-resistant lens coating. This unique coating, applied to the lenses, will protect the surface from scratches and abrasion.
The binoculars come in a grey and orange colour combination, and Maven C1 has a modern design, which is always a plus. These optics can be used for all types of nature observations, from wildlife spotting to birdwatching, and also for hunting.
Central focusing wheel
Maven C1 10x42 binoculars feature Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms. The binoculars offer a bright view, which is a result of extra-low dispersion ED lenses. The image that these binoculars provide is incredibly sharp in the centre, as well as on the edges. The 10x magnification also provides a more detailed image.
The C1 10x42 provides a wide field of view of 104 m/1000 m that helps you to follow small and fast-moving objects. Focusing should also not pose a problem, as the 10x42 model has a fluid focusing wheel located in the centre and is easily accessible.
Maven C1 10x42 binoculars come with a 10-year warranty.
