New Ravin Crossbow Delivers Unmatched Downrange Accuracy
Through Exclusive TechnologyWith patented HeliCoil™ technology, the Ravin crossbow measures just six inches from axle-to-axle and delivers unprecedented downrange accuracy – with groups as tight as three inches at 100 yards.
SUPERIOR, Wisconsin. (October 26, 2016) – The hunting world gets a wake-up call today as a new brand is born and a revolutionary crossbow hits the market. Powered by the groundbreaking HeliCoil™technology, the new R9 Crossbow from Ravin delivers rifle-like accuracy, handling and devastating killing power.
Designed from the ground up to be the most accurate and efficient crossbow technology ever, patentedHeliCoil technology coils the cables away from both the top and bottom of the cams in helical grooves. This keeps the cams perfectly balanced for increased speed and downrange accuracy.
The exclusive design allows the cams to rotate to a near full rotation of 340 degrees while keeping the cams perfectly level when drawing and shooting the crossbow. This also results in a 100 percent free-floating arrow when fired, eliminating the friction that other crossbows experience. The result: increased speed and deadly accuracy at longer ranges.
“HeliCoil technology is the starting point for a crossbow that literally changes the way crossbows function,” said Ravin’s Mike Weinkauf. “Our goal was to reimagine every piece of the bow, with the goal of delivering a rifle-like experience for the shooter. Once we perfected the HeliCoil design, everything else fell into place. The Ravin R9 provides unmatched downrange accuracy and incredible killing power from the most compact axle-to-axle measurement on the market.”
Downrange accuracy is Ravin’s calling card with prototype and initial production bows regularly holding six-arrow groups at three inches or less at 100 yards. But the similarities between the new crossbow and a rifle go well beyond accuracy. The overall axle width in the un-cocked position is a mere 10.5 inches, and is an amazing six inches when fully drawn, making Ravin the smallest, most compact crossbow in existence. Read more
