Wicked Ridge NXT 400
The Wicked Ridge NXT 400 is the brand’s narrowest and most accurate crossbow ever. Wicked Ridge Crossbows’ NEW American-made NXT 400 is built unlike any crossbow in its price-range — featuring TenPoint’s Narrow Crossbow Technology™ (NXT) bow assembly that measures 6-inches wide when cocked and delivers speeds of 400 feet-per-second with same-hole down-range accuracy.
“Our Made in America Wicked Ridge line of crossbows continues to distance themselves from import models in terms of quality, performance and value,” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint® CEO. “At $1,099, the NXT 400 features a combination of width, speed, accuracy and built-in cocking device that is unrivaled at its price-point on the crossbow market.”
Fueled by XR6-Cams™ and featuring Vector-Quad™ cable technology, the NXT bow assembly is the difference maker for this high-performance crossbow. The maximum rotation cam system powers the assembly’s 200-pound DUAL FLEX limbs producing devastating speeds of 400 feet-per-second with a 400-grain arrow. Meanwhile, the revolutionary Vector-Quad cable technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two for increased strength and stability, translating to reduced cam lean and cable stretch.
At the bow assembly’s foundation is a lightweight CNC machined aluminum riser featuring the company’s 70/75 aircraft grade aluminum TRI-LOCK™ pocket system that ensures perfect alignment between the pocket and limbs for increased accuracy.
The bow assembly is mounted to a lightweight 21.5-inch machined aluminum barrel, which dramatically reduces noise, weight and vibration. It is fitted with the company’s 3½-pound auto-engaging safety T-5 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. Like all Wicked Ridge 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 NXT 400 embeds its barrel and trigger assembly in the company’s lightweight Functionally Superior Bullpup™ (FSB) stock. Molded from PolyOne™ OnForce™, the high-tech stock is built with optimal comb-height and length-of-pull and uses strategically placed cutouts in the butt stock to reduce weight.
Like all Wicked Ridge models, this model is equipped with dual-purpose safety wings to reduce noise and vibration as well as helping to keep the shooter’s fore-grip hand safely below the flight deck.
The bow and stock assemblies combine to create a crossbow unlike any other at its price-point — weighing in at 7.4 pounds, measuring only 33-inches long (w/o stirrup), and shooting blistering speeds of 400 feet-per-second with the included 400-grain Pro Elite 400 carbon arrow.
The NXT 400 is equipped with the ACUdraw® crank-cocking device that provides effortless cocking for hunters of all ages and an illuminated 3x Pro-View™ Scope. The NXT 400 is factory sighted-in, and double-dip fluid imaged in the brand’s exclusive Peak™ camo.
The model ships fully assembled and sells as a complete package that includes an ACUdraw cocking device, three Alpha-Nock™ carbon arrows, integrated string stop system and a quiver.
