Maven Binoculars Series

Maven customizes bins according to the specs that you need. You may not even require any adjustments when the deal is done.

Build Your Maven Binoculars

This is the main service that Maven Optics provides. This is their signature move that makes them unique. Maven provides you with an ability to personalize your personal binocular as per your needs.

Well, they won’t allow you to choose the optical components of the bin or the coatings as this depends majorly on the budget. However, you have the freehand to choose the color, number of armor accents, name engrave, and many more.

 Depending on your individual build and the specific requirements, you will have to pay for the entire service and delivery.

NOTE: The delivery may take up to a month once Maven gets your binocular design. So, only buy here if you want quality and if you are patient enough to wait.

Main Optics Range

Apart from customized models, Maven also maintains a range of Maven binocular series. They are of different designs but are highly affordable and always ready to be shipped.

You can find these models in retail shops. Nonetheless, this stocked range of bins from Maven will also use components of the same quality as those of the custom versions.

They have a wonderful color selection, combinations of tastes, and unique design technology too. Take a look.

Maven Binoculars Range

Here are the ready-to-ship binoculars from Maven Optics that you can always scout for depending on your budget.

  • Maven B1 Binoculars
  • Maven B2 Binoculars
  • Maven B3 Binoculars
  • Maven B4 Binoculars
  • Maven C2 Binoculars

Maven B1 Binoculars Series

Maven B1 Binoculars series is what you would classify as their “standard” full-sized binocular series. The binoculars in this category are two and each model uses the 42mm objective lens diameters.

The objective lens of the bins in this group comprises 3 groups with the 4 elements design. The design includes the use of the ED (extra-low dispersion glass) element, which is designed to reduce any form of chromatic fringing.

The lens coatings used also contain a superior design technology that is highly resistant to scratch and oil.

More importantly, the Schmidt-Pechan roof prisms are also used. They are combined with the dielectric coatings, which are the best coatings of high-end models.

Due to the quality of the dielectric coatings, you will not only enjoy a high reflectivity index but also a sharp increase on brightness and the quality of the final image.

Even better, the chassis on the B1 series is also made from the high-end Magnesium alloy. The models are tripod adaptable and you can easily use them for extended time frame.

Our experiment with the B 1series also reveals that they are fully sealed using the O-ringed technology.  This gives them a stunning waterproof technology.

Their barrels are also filled with dry nitrogen gas for the best fog protection. Their waterproofing technology is the pressure tested (IPX7 standard) and will retain high performance for depths of up to 1meter for about 30minutes.

Available Models

Maven B1 Binoculars have two models. They have the 10×42 and 8×42 models. These models are readily available in orange, black, or silver hues.

Pricing

Maven B1 Binoculars are elite level bins. They are easy to use. The binoculars have their retail price set around $900.

Maven B2 Binoculars Series

The B2 binoculars series from Maven comes with three models. All these models use the 45mm objective lens diameters. In short, they are a little bigger than their sisters above but are still full-sized bins.

The only plus that these larger lenses come with is that they will let in additional light. By doing that, they will get better image quality by giving clearer images in low lit areas.

More like the B1 binocular series, these larger 45mm objective lens maven bins are also made up of 3 groups-4 elements.

They include the use of the extra-low dispersion glass (ED) elements that eliminate any form of color fringing.

They have the scratch and oil resistant type of coatings for the best exterior surface strengths.  However, Abbe-Koenig roof prisms come with the B2 series, which is unlike the Schmidt-Pechan design that we saw in the B1 series.

The best thing about the Abbe-Koenig prisms is this. They are longer and less compact, which gives them a focal length and thus helps in the reduction of any color aberrations.

Another vital point is this. The surfaces of the Abbe-Koenig prism reflect 100% of the gathered light. This means that the models that use this technique don’t require highly reflective coatings such as the Silver or Dielectric.

They will easily have an improved internal reflection either way. Like the B1 series these ones are also fully sealed. They use the O-ringed technology and have a great waterproofing technology.

The barrels of these models use dry nitrogen gas for fog protection. Their waterproofing technology is the (IPX7 standard) that retains high performance for the depths of up to 1meter and can hold to 30minutes.

Available Models

  • Maven 7×45 B2 Binoculars
  • Maven 8×45 B2 Binoculars
  • Maven 11×45 B2 Binoculars

Pricing

The larger lenses weigh more and cost slightly more. They let in more light and last longer too. That’s why these models sell for slightly above $1000.

Maven B4 Binoculars

Maven B4 Binoculars series are the largest bins from Maven’s B series. They come with the 56mm objective lens diameters.

This means that they have the best improved light gathering ability. This makes their images brighter especially when higher magnifications are incorporated.

They are also perfect for anyone who wants high quality observation for the long distance objects.

Why the B4 Binoculars

This series has large 56mm Objective lenses. They are made with extra-low dispersion glass (ED) elements that eliminate color fringing.

More importantly, they are arranged into 3 groups with 4 elements objective lens technology. Even so, they operate more like the previous models.

Thanks to their scratch and oil resistant coatings that give the exterior lens surfaces the best durability.

B4 models like the B2 series also use Abbe-Koenig roof prisms. This means they have longer and thinner prisms compared to the models that use Schmidt-Pechan.

They have longer focal length that are superior and whose surfaces reflect 100% of the gathered light.

These roof prisms again have the best dielectric coatings, which are the best coatings for high-end bins.

There is the use of a durable polycarbonate chassis and the models are waterproof tested to the same depth of one meter and goes for half an hour (IPX7 standard) under water.

The barrels are nitrogen filled for the best anti-fog protection under extreme weather. This tripod adaptable bin series is, therefore, a powerful option.

Available Models

  • Maven 10x56mm B4 Binoculars

Maven C2 Binoculars Series

The latest binocular series from Maven is the high specification compact C2 Binoculars Series. The C2 Binoculars Series come with an ED glass lenses.

This is very rare when it comes to compact bins. However, it works better since it comes with the fully multi-coated optics.

The C2 Binoculars Series from Maven also used the phase corrected prisms and more surprisingly the dielectric coatings.

The dielectric coatings are best for maximum reflectivity and will provide the highest possible performances.

In addition to all these, the Maven C2 Compacts also use the protective coatings that are added to their exterior lenses for additional durability.

They are fully fog and waterproof. They will work efficiently under extreme weather conditions and use the lightweight polycarbonate shell.

The C2 binoculars from Maven are lovely and come in two main configurations. The first is the 7×28 model, which has the super wide field of view. It also has a large exit pupil for better performances in low lit areas.

The next model is the 10×28. This is best for those who want to get a little bit closer to the main action.
