The Gearhead Archery design team pulled out all the stops as they enter the crossbow market. Some of the biggest complaints about crossbows are the weight, size, difficulty cocking, noise, vibration and how quickly the strings and cables burn out. We started from scratch to come up with the ultimate crossbow. Gearhead Archery has applied for multiple patents in developing this futuristic design. We believe when the X16 Crossbow Series is seen and held, people will understand what we mean when we say Gearhead Archery is rethinking tradition. It’s truly a work of art!
The X16 Carbon Crossbow is 4.50 pounds bare bow. The weight of this crossbow is lighter than many of the compound bows on the market. Furthermore, the X16 shoots regular nock arrows and can be shot thousands of times without burning out the string or power cables. This crossbow is really easy to cock and does not require a foot stirrup or rope cocker. However, we have both options available and people who struggle to cock most crossbows today will enjoy cocking and shooting the X16 with or without a rope cocker. The X16 is super quiet like our T Series Compound Bows. This crossbow has a traditional look, but the way it feels, shoots, and balances is truly amazing.
