Wicked Ridge Crossbows, regarded by many as the industry’s best value for the money, introduced its new Warrior G3 crossbow in January at the 2016 ATA Trade Show in Louisville, Ky.. The Warrior G3 features a new stock assembly focused on weight reduction and enhanced safety along with a narrower, lighter, and faster bow assembly.

The Wicked Ridge Warrior G3 is packed with features and has an affordable price.

“The Warrior built its reputation as an affordable entry-level crossbow made with a level of quality and dependability superior to many of our competitors’ premium models.” Rick Bednar, TenPoint and Wicked Ridge CEO, said. “With our bow and stock assembly upgrades for 2016, the Warrior G3 is a better performer and better value than ever.”

The bow assembly consists of a newly designed, machined aluminum riser with strategically placed cutouts that reduce weight and increase strength. It is fitted with new, tactical-black 12.3-inch WL12™ limbs powered by a new Energy Wheel™ equipped with DynaFLIGHT 97 string and yoked cables. This configuration produces a fast and maneuverable 320 FPS, 155-pound draw weight assembly that is only 19-inches from axle-to-axle when cocked.

The new, semi-skeletal stock design, made from PolyOne™ OnForce™, makes the stock assembly lighter and safer. The pass-through fore-grip design allows shooters to wrap their fingers and thumb “into” the grip for enhanced safety and stability. This feature, along with the new longer glass-reinforced nylon safety wings positioned on the stock just above the grip, combine to help keep the shooter’s fingers, thumb and hand safely below the bowstring’s release path when shooting.

In addition to these new safety features on the Warrior G3, the stock is also fitted with TenPoint’s DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and 3.5-pound T3™ auto-engaging safety trigger. The two assemblies combined, without accessories, weigh only 6.6-pounds.

The Warrior G3 is double-dip fluid imaged in Mossy Oak Break-Up® Country™ camo pattern. Its package includes a TenPoint 3x Multi-Line™ Scope, 3 Wicked Ridge aluminum arrows, and a quiver. Suggested retail price is $449.

All Wicked Ridge crossbows are USA made and designed by TenPoint Crossbow Technologies® in Mogadore, Ohio.
