A new era in crossbows has arrived with the launch of the highest-performing crossbow in the industry

Ravin, the leading innovator in crossbow technology, debuts its new, category-redefining DuoMax Cam System with the launch of the all-new Ravin R50X, setting a new standard in precision and performance. Designed to enhance and extend the overall user experience, the DuoMax Cam System powering the all-new R50X, combines technological advancements that revolutionize the crossbow hunting experience. 

“As we unveil the all-new DuoMax Cam System, equipped within the most advanced and efficient crossbow on the market, we’re not just setting a new standard – we’re defining a future where precision meets performance seamlessly,” said Russ Rowan, Chief Brand Officer at Ravin Crossbows. “With this launch, we proudly present the pinnacle of performance, delivering a crossbow that offers the most innovative features on the market.”

DuoMax Cam System
Crossbow shooters will experience the perfect combination of power, precision and a remarkably smooth shooting process with the DuoMax Cam System. This groundbreaking technology not only harnesses more power and extends string life, but also significantly reduces vibrations, ensuring comfort and control with every shot. This industry-first, dual-track system achieves a perfect rotational balance, resulting in blistering speeds and increased accuracy that instills users with a newfound level of confidence. Developed with the most innovative dual-loop string construction on the market, the technological pairing of the cam and string systems transfer efficient energy through the power stroke and into the arrow, virtually eliminating any antagonistic rotational forces. With enhanced string life, users gain more time to focus on their season, target and the shot, making the DuoMax Cam System the crest of the wave in crossbow technology.

Ravin R50X
The DuoMax Cam, a pioneering technology in the industry, collaborates seamlessly with advanced string technology to achieve an impressive 360-degree rotation. This entirely new system transfers massive amounts of harnessed energy with maximum rotational stabilization. The combination of the two will reduce limb wear, increase string life and extend effective shot count. The R50X delivers a staggering 505 FPS speed with a 400-grain arrow and boasts a sleek axle-to-axle width of 4 inches when cocked.
