Athlon Optics Talos overview

  • 1Description

Ideal for hunting, hiking, birding, and camping, the Athlon Optics 12x50 Talos Binocular is designed with complementary features that will make it your constant companion when you're out on the prairie or steppe.

Optically, the Talos benefits from broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics that maximize light transmission through the light path and improve contrast and color rendition across the entire visual spectrum. The roof prisms are made of BAK4 glass and finished with highly reflective silver and phase-correcting coatings that limit internal interference, light loss, and diffraction. These features work together to produce bright, sharp, and clear high-contrast views with accurate color fidelity and crisp resolution. The high power allows users to see across great distances such as prairies and steppes for spotting and identifying big game and birds, while the large objective lenses boost its light-gathering capabilities to draw in the available light and maintain bright images even when conditions are less than ideal—such as in the pre-dawn and late dusk hours, or when looking into dense brush or using under heavy cloud cover.

Complementing the optical performance are construction details that allow the Talos to withstand the elements. The optical tubes are argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging if the weather turns or they take an accidental spill in a stream or puddle. Protecting the optical components is a composite chassis that is lightweight and durable as well as resistant to the expansion and contraction that metal suffers from and which can lead to fuzzy views over time. A slip-resistant armoring provides a sure grip, and raised-ridge palm-pad accents further improve grip strength. Athlon includes objective lens caps and a one-piece ocular rainguard to protect the exterior lens surfaces. To keep the caps and rainguard safe during use, they are tethered to the body and strap, respectively.

Optical Performance
  • Powerful 12x magnification enables detailed observations of distant subjects
  • Large 50mm objective lenses are optimized for long-range use in challenging light conditions such as at dawn and dusk, or under heavy cloud cover
  • Compact roof prism light path ensures the optical tubes remain slim for easier handling without affecting performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Phase-correcting prism coatings eliminate internal interference to improve color and contrast
  • Highly reflective prism coatings minimize internal light loss
  • Broadband anti-reflection fully multi-coated optics maximize light transmission and improve contrast and color fidelity across the entire visible spectrum
  • 242-foot field of view at 1000 yards
Use and Handling
  • Closed bridge configuration provides a solid platform for the internal focusing system
  • Large slip-resistant center focusing wheel is easy to manipulate in cold and wet weather, even while wearing gloves
  • Right-eye dioptric correction allows user to compensate for optical prescription to produce sharper views
  • 56-73mm interpupillary distance adjustment range
  • Twist-up click-stop eyecups for easy use with or without eyewear
  • Tripod mountable with an optional adapter for hands-free use to eliminate vibrations and arm fatigue
  • Long 18.2mm eye relief makes viewing more comfortable with reduced eye strain, especially during long glassing sessions
  • 4.2mm exit pupil will cover most pupils when they open and dilate in low light to avoid vignetting of the view
Construction Details
  • Lightweight and durable composite chassis material
  • Composite material is resistant to the expansion and contraction that metal suffers from and which can lead to the optical components moving out of alignment over time, preventing sharp focus
  • Protective rubber armor with raised ridged palm pads provides a slip-resistant grip
  • Argon-filled and O-ring sealed to be waterproof and resistant to internal fogging when moving through extreme changes in temperature and environmental conditions
  • Tethered objective lens caps and one-piece ocular rainguard protect the lens surface without the fear of losing them when not in use
