Hawke Sport Optics Frontier HD X Overview

  • 1Description

With a magnification–objective lens configuration favored by professionals and experienced amateurs around the world, the gray Hawke Optics 8x42 Frontier HD X Binocular delivers the performance you need when going from the trail to the range to the stadium to sightseeing around the city.

This binocular features phase-correcting and dielectric coatings on the BAK4 prisms, with anti-reflection multi-coatings on the lens surfaces to round out the optical features that work together to produce bright and clear images with true-to-life colors and enhanced clarity without distortion or fringing. The wide apparent angle of view presents an immersive observational experience with the ability to take in large areas without having to move your head.

A fast-focusing mechanism runs through the full focal range in just 1.5 turns of the large center focusing knob, making finding subjects fast and tracking moving targets easy. Designed to stand up to a life lived outdoors, the optical tubes are nitrogen filled and O-ring sealed to give them a waterproof rating of IPX7 and make them fogproof even when moving through extreme temperature variations. The chassis is made from an magnesium alloy to make it lightweight and corrosion resistant. Hawke includes tethered front and rear lens caps to add an additional layer of protection in the field, with the ability to quickly react to glassing opportunities without fear of losing the caps.

Optical Performance
  • 8x power magnifies view without sacrificing field of view or exit pupil
  • 42mm objective lenses improve light-gathering ability versus smaller objectives 
  • Compact roof prism light path ensures a slim profile, helping to maintain a compact form factor without sacrificing performance
  • BAK4 prism glass delivers a round exit pupil and a crisp and clear image with limited edge distortion
  • Phase-correcting and dielectric mirror prism coatings eliminate internal interference, light loss, and diffraction to improve clarity, resolution, and contrast
  • Anti-reflection multi-coated optics maximize light transmission to ensure bright and clear images with accurate colors and improved contrast and clarity
