At the heart of the crossbow’s efficiency is the bow assembly’s new RCX Cam System. Measuring 13.375 inches axle-to-axle when cocked, the bow assembly creates an increased power stroke, at 16 inches, for a crossbow measuring just 35.5 inches long. In addition, it allows the lightweight 160-pound bow assembly—equipped with 10.5-inch RCX limbs and new Brownell Rhino string and cables—to generate speeds up to 385 feet per second. The machined–aluminum riser features an Over-the-Top limb pocket and Zytel Limb Suspension System that both separates and isolates the limbs from direct contact with the riser to reduce sound and vibration. Pre-installed String Dampening Rods (SDR) further reduce noise and vibration.
