NEW RAVIN R 500 SERIES CROSSBOWS SHATTERS INDUSTRY SPEEDS:

Ravin’s new R500 Series Crossbows deliver staggering speeds of 500 feet per second with a 400-grain arrow—making them the fastest and most powerful crossbows ever created. The top-of-the-line crossbows include new technology and accessories such as the Ravin Electric Drive System for push-button cocking and decocking, plus the new Ravin Adjustable Turret Scope—all with slim axle-to-axle widths of just 3.6 inches cocked.
“The advancements we’ve made in technology are truly remarkable,” says Doug Guthrie, head of New Product Development for Ravin. “These breakthroughs allow our customers to shatter the 500 feet per second threshold in a crossbow that’s even smaller than ever before possible. With the introduction of the Electric Drive System—being able to cock and decock with the push of a button—hunters and shooters gain flexibility in the field, benefit from streamlined ease-of-use, and enjoy top of the line accuracy with every shot.”

R500 Series Crossbows
All Ravin R500 Series Crossbows feature the new proprietary HexCoil Cam System, producing speeds of 500-feet-per-second with axle-to-axle widths of 3.6 inches cocked or 7.6 inches uncocked. The series includes the upgradable R500, R500E (with Ravin Electric Drive System), R500 Sniper (with Ravin Adjustable Turret Scope, Scope Level, and .001 Premium Arrows) and the top-of-the-line R500E Sniper, with a complete set of features and accessories. Available in Slate Gray, R500 Series Crossbows will start shipping Spring 2021.

R500
Completely silent, the R500 uses the new R500 Draw Handle and the new VersaDrive Cocking System, with its internal screw drive, to move the Trac Trigger Firing System (TTFS) back and forth. The internal clutch within the VersaDrive System eliminates over-cocking and allows cocking and uncocking to be stopped at any point during the process. The R500 can be upgraded to the R500E by purchase of the new Electric Drive Kit, sold separately. MSRP $3,049.99


Ravin R500E


The R500E adds the new Ravin Electric Drive System to the R500, allowing users to cock or decock the crossbow with the push of a button.

NEW RAVIN R18

Ravin turns traditional crossbow design on its head with the R18, using the new VertiCoil Cam System to compact a full-power crossbow into a weapon a fraction of the size of all others, firing arrows downrange at 330 feet per second. Unlike any other crossbow in history, the takedown-style R18 is a narrow 4.75 inches wide only 18 inches long without its detachable stock configuration.

The proprietary VertiCoil Cam System that powers the R18 takes already legendary HeliCoil Technology and—literally—cranks it up. This system rotates the R18’s ultra-small cams 720 degrees, wrapping the crossbow string and cables around the cam and cam axle, resulting in an astounding axle-to-axle height of just 1.3 inches when cocked.

“Every year we identify and obliterate boundaries no one else in our industry sees,” says Doug Guthrie, New Product Development at Ravin. “The R18 is a unique takedown-style crossbow and has the latest groundbreaking and innovative technology from Ravin.”

Using the VertiCoil Cam System, the limbs of the R18 expand vertically instead of horizontally for an axle-to-axle height of just 1.3 inches when fully cocked or 4.1 inches uncocked. The 6-pound R18 features a detachable stock with an integrated removable quiver system, built-in cocking mechanism for an easy draw, anti-dry fire/auto safety and built in sling mounts. Inside the box contains the new Ravin 3-Dot Reflex Sight for an easy target acquisition, three 350-grain 16-inch R18 arrows with field points and a removable draw handle. The R18 is black and will be available Spring 2021 with an MSRP of $1,549.99.

I’m gonna say this ....innovative yes....innovation goes to ravin

tenpoints two new models really leave the shooter with balance, precision , fair speeds and tons of safety n reliability. If the ravin was in the 7lb range we could talk maybe.

my money goes to Tenpoint this year since I’m not a fan boy ...

I don't see the R18 doing very well for sales. Pretty ugly looking rig. LOL

Ill more than likely have a 500. Just depends on what Scorpyd does by the time I'm ready to buy.
I like the looks of the R18 for blind hunting. Just wish it were over 330 fps but I bet it sells like hot cakes.
