Elite Introduces 2017 Option Series

Elite Archery Option 7West Henrietta, NY (January 10, 2017) – For 2017, ELITE Archery has built upon the belief that your bow should feel as great as it looks—without sacrificing any performance. The result is the Option Series™, built around the basic principle that your bow must always perform as well as you do, especially under less than ideal conditions.

From the axles to the grip—and everything in between—each of the two bows in the Option Series allows shootability to take on a new shape while continuing to utilize the industry-leading technologies Elite has become known for. The 32-inch axle-to-axle Option 6 and Option 7 deliver speed and precision with a newly engineered design that maximizes performance from each bows respective 6 or 7-inch brace heights. Utilizing a 7075 T6 skeletonized riser with dual Riser Cages the Option series features a 65% greater strength-to-weight ratio than previous models in a 4.3lb package. The new LTR (Linear Tunable Roller Guard™) roller guard provides the finest tune an ELITE has ever seen. Delivering blistering speeds of up to 342 fps I.B.O. the Option Series continues ELITE’s tradition of a stable shooting platform with performance, forgiveness and style. [Read more…]

SHOOTABILITY ACCELERATED: The 2016 ELITE IMPULSE

Elite Impulse 31 Ninja HGNWest Henrietta, NY (October 9, 2015) – ELITE Archery introduces the most advanced bow they have ever engineered– the new for 2016 Impulse™.

A proctor of pulse-raising performance, the 2016 ELITE Impulse™ series delivers speed without compromise and “Shootability” without sacrifice. Nearly a decade of product innovation has led to the design of the next generation of ELITE bows, which combine a smooth shooting and stable platform with ultra-swift 340fps+ I.B.O. speeds.

Improving the aesthetic and performance of the Impulse™ series is a new open-geometry 6061 T6 aluminum riser designed to distribute load over a greater surface area and improve torsional rigidity. The result of ELITE’s exclusive Riser Cage™ design is reduced torque at full draw and a riser that’s dead in the hand, plus up to 30% stiffer than comparable riser concepts. The Perfect Alignment Limb System limb pocket, also new for 2016, provides a strong foundation for exceptionally balanced and forgiving shooting on the Impulse Series bows. Through a simple yet sophisticated solution, ELITE engineers have developed a way to increase limb alignment by restraining the limb in place with two tabs that directly translate downward limb pressure into balanced horizontal limb alignment. This system helps maintain extremely tight stack tolerances to provide consistent riser, cam and limb alignment abolishing accuracy-robbing inconsistencies. [Read more…]
