TenPoint Crossbow Technologies’ New 2018 Nitro X is the company’s fastest and smallest hunting crossbow. Measuring an ultra-narrow 7 inches wide, the Nitro X unleashes speeds up to 440 feet-per-second, generating 166 foot-pounds of kinetic energy and excellent down-range accuracy.
Fueled by new RX7™ cams and SLING-SHOT™ technology, the reverse-draw bow assembly is the difference maker for this top-of-the-line hunting crossbow. The newly designed, maximum rotation cam system powers its DUAL FLEX™ limbs, while the SLING-SHOT technology provides an extra boost to produce speeds up to 440 fps. 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 balances torsion and tension to eliminate cam lean.
At the bow’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 black anodized, 20-inch TAC-LITE™ aluminum barrel that dramatically reduces the weight of the crossbow. It is fitted with the company’s 3½-pound, auto-engaging safety trigger housed in a lightweight machined aluminum trigger box. Its weaver-style dovetail is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to further reduce noise and vibration, and improve accuracy. Like all TenPoint hunting crossbow models, the trigger assembly is equipped with a DFI™ (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor). An integrated string-stop system is also included that fits into the end of the barrel to reduce noise and vibration.
The Nitro X also features TenPoint’s lightweight, three-piece C3™ stock. Designed to reduce weight, noise and vibration, the stock is molded from glass-fiber infused PolyOne™ OnForce™ fitted with an adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate. The rubber cheekpiece adjusts to three positions by removing the screws and sliding it to create perfect eye-level alignment. Likewise, the rubber buttplate adjusts to two positions to match each shooter’s length-of-pull.
The bow and stock assemblies combine to create a balanced, accurate hunting crossbow that weighs 7.8 pounds, measures only 30.7 inches long. Like all TenPoint models, this model is equipped with dual-purpose rubber safety wings to reduce noise and vibration, as well as help to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the flight deck.
Double-dip fluid imaged in True Timber® Viper Western™ camo, the Nitro X ships completely assembled and is available in two packages. The Standard package includes the ACUdraw Pro™, RangeMaster® Pro Scope, six-pack of Evo-X™ CenterPunch™ premium carbon arrows, an integrated string stop system and a quiver. The Elite package includes the ACUdraw Pro, Evo-X Marksman™ Scope, TenPoint STAG™ Hard Crossbow Case, six-pack of Evo-X CenterPunch premium carbon arrows, integrated string stop system and a quiver.
