The Fastest Crossbow in the World.

4.5 / 5.0
From what I've personally seen in the field and in testing there is no other crossbow built to this level of speed and durability. It's so fast you can't blink and see the arrows as they fly to the target.
Wade Middleton
Crazy accurate & easy to use. Superior cocking/decocking mechanism, especially compared to a competitor’s 500 FPS bow that started to deteriorate after 15 shots with string fraying and broken nocks. No issues at all with the Nitro!
Lumm
Shooting the fastest crossbow provides more advantage than I could have imagined. The Nitro 505 is so fast that the arrow went through the deer before it had any time to react. It was like shooting lightning bolts.

Easiest Cocking & De-Cocking

Easiest Cocking & De-Cocking

The de-cocking system dealers recommend most, the ACUslide allows you to silently cock the crossbow with an easy 5-pounds of force. It features a NEW brake pad with more robust breaking power and a NEW Dyneem Strap that handles over 2,000 pounds of force If you don’t take a shot, safely de-cock the crossbow by backwinding the handle, and unlike other de-cocking systems on the market, stop at any point without the fear of damage, injury, or losing control.
RX8-Cam System

RX8-Cam System

RX8 Cams rotate an industry-leading 404-degrees. The NEW cam system features deeper cable grooves and improved cable spacing which allows for an increased strand count on string and cables for added strength and durability at these unprecedented speeds.
Unmatched Speed & Power

Unmatched Speed & Power

The reverse-draw design creates a 17-inch power stroke - the longest in the industry. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight - creating a smoother, quieter shot. It also keeps the nock engaged with the string for an additional 4-inches before release - generating better accuracy. And, the reverse-draw design eliminate the "nose heavy" feel of traditional crossbows - making it easier to hold steady.
Greater Trigger Control

Greater Trigger Control

The 2-stage, zero-creep S1 Trigger features an advanced roller-sear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The S1 Trigger gives you greater trigger control – leading to tighter groups and greater down-range precision.
