TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ New 2019 Nitro XRT is unlike any crossbow ever produced. Unleashing speeds up to an industry-first 470 feet-per-second and generating a jaw-dropping 190 Foot-Pounds of power, the ultra-smooth Nitro XRT generates 25% flatter arrow trajectory, leading to precision downrange accuracy and devastating knock-down power.
“The Nitro XRT is an industry transcending crossbow,” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO. “The industry has never seen a crossbow with this much speed and knock-down power, yet be whisper-quiet, have perfect balance, and deliver a super-smooth shot.”
The Nitro XRT is engineered with a reverse draw bow assembly featuring a center-mounted riser that provides superior balance. By shifting the riser from the front of the crossbow to its center, the design eliminates the “nose heavy” feel of traditional crossbows, making it easier to hold steady and keep the crosshairs locked on target. The reverse draw design is also more efficient than traditional crossbows. Drawing the string through the riser creates an elongated power stroke, which generates greater speeds with less poundage, leading to a smoother, lower-vibration shot that is 3x quieter than competing models.
Fueled by RX7-Cams™ and SLING-SHOT™ technology, the reverse-draw bow assembly generates unprecedented power. The innovative cam system rotates an industry-leading 404-degrees which powers the DUAL FLEX™ limbs, while the SLING-SHOT technology provides an extra turbo boost to produce record-breaking speeds up to 470 feet-per-second, leading to devastating impacts. Meanwhile, the assembly’s revolutionary Vector Quad™ cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two for increased strength and stability. Connecting at the cam, wrapping around the turnbuckle, and terminating on the riser, the cable system creates perfectly level cams, generating straight-nock travel and pin-point down-range accuracy.
At the bow assembly’s foundation is a lightweight CNC machined 7075-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum riser featuring the company’s TRI-LOCK™ pocket system that ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for increased accuracy.
The bow assembly is mounted to a 20-inch TAC-LITE™ fluted aluminum barrel that reduces the weight and increases the accuracy of the crossbow. Its Weaver-style dovetail is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration and improve accuracy. In addition, the Nitro XRT is equipped with the new T5 trigger, which features an auto-engaging safety and a DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor). The combination of the new trigger and the reverse draw design make the Nitro XRT the smoothest shooting TenPoint crossbow to date.
An integrated string stop system is also included that fits into the end of the barrel to further reduce noise and vibration.
The Nitro XRT features TenPoint’s lightweight, three-piece C3™ stock. Designed to reduce weight, noise, and vibration, the high-tech stock is fitted with an adjustable cheek piece and butt plate. The rubber cheek piece adjusts to three separate positions by removing the screws and sliding it to create perfect eye-level alignment. Likewise, the rubber butt plate adjusts to two positions to match the shooter’s length-of-pull.
The bow and stock assemblies combine to create a perfectly balanced, sharp-shooting crossbow that weighs 7.4-pounds, measures only 30.7-inches long, and shoots up to a supercharged 470 feet-per-second – making it the fastest and shortest crossbow ever.
Like all TenPoint models, the XRT is equipped with dual-purpose rubber safety wings to reduce noise and vibration as well as helping to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the flight deck.
Double-dip fluid imaged in KUIU® Verde 2.0 camo, the Nitro XRT ships completely assembled and is available with an extensive Ready-To-Hunt package.
The package includes the ACUdraw PRO™ silent cocking device, Evo-X™ Marksman™ Precision Scope, TenPoint STAG™ Hard Crossbow Case, 6-pack of EVO-X CenterPunch™ premium carbon arrows NEW Alpha-Nocks™, dovetail bubble level, integrated string stop system, sling, and a quiver.
