About the Bows

There’s one for everyone.

WHICH STYLE FITS YOUR NEEDS?

Crossbows come in all shapes and sizes. Each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks, but Barnett stands behind all of its crossbows as lethal hunting weapons and effective tools for sport that get the job done. Selecting your crossbow begins with selecting which type of design you prefer. This is a personal decision only you can make. Visit your local Barnett dealer to get a hands-on look at your options to find the right fit for you.

CARBONLITE CROSSBOWS

BEHOLD THE FASTEST CROSSBOW IN OUR ARSENAL

Crossbows in the Carbonlite series feature a specially crafted carbon riser that is 40 to 48 percent lighter than materials used in most crossbows today. This lightweight design means your crossbow is not only easier to carry, but also performs better with less weight shifting during operation.

Reverse Draw Crossbows

Take to the hunt with stealth precision

Reverse draw crossbows flip the traditional crossbow design by moving the riser assembly to the middle of the stock. This means rather than facing outwards, the limbs face inward and flex toward the front of the bow when cocked. All of these elements create a more balanced crossbow that provides fast speeds with a low draw weight. This option is also ideal for tree stands since its linear design takes up less space.

Compound Crossbows

Continuing the tradition

Compound crossbows incorporate a set of cams or wheels into the limb assembly. The end result may look more complicated or intimidating than their recurve cousins, but compound crossbows actually offer more power and speed. The design also reduces vibration, which in turn reduces noise. The addition of two cables in the cams means that maintenance on a compound bow is slightly more time-consuming than a recurve bow, which only has a singular string.

Recurve Crossbows

Honoring the rich heritage of a classic design

Recurve crossbows are the simplest form of crossbow – solely dependent on a set of limbs or a single limb (rather than a set of cams or wheels) to draw the bow. The string attaches directly to the limb(s) curved toward the mounting point of the riser. The recurve is the tried and true crossbow model that has endured for centuries. Recurve crossbows are also the lightest option and the easiest to maintain. However, they do generate less speed compared to models featuring wheels or cams.
