2021 was a banner year for the crew at TenPoint Crossbow Technologies and it looks like 2022 will be even better. TenPoint’s 2022 flagship crossbow eclipses the 500 fps mark and is now the fastest production crossbow ever made. The new TenPoint Nitro 505 will hit speeds up to 505 feet per second with a 400-grain arrow. The new TenPoint Titan De-Cock reimagines TenPoint’s most popular crossbow ever by adding a de-cocking feature that allows users to de-cock the Titan safely with the ACUdraw De-Cock System. Another legendary TenPoint model is also getting upgrades. The new Turbo S1 will be the lowest-priced TenPoint featuring ACUslide.
There was a time, not too long ago, when 400 feet per second(fps) seemed to be an insurmountable speed barrier for crossbows. Now TenPoint has shattered the 500 fps mark with the new Nitro 505 Crossbow. Currently the industry’s fastest crossbow at 505 fps, the reverse-draw Nitro 505 measures an ultra-compact 6.5” wide and 30.7” long.
According to TenPoint CEO Rick Bednar, the Nitro 505 is the most tested crossbow they’ve ever built, with over 25,000 shots built into the design. The Nitro includes TenPoint’s ACUslide system which allows users to silently cock the crossbow without fear of their hand slipping off the handle. It doesn’t matter if you’re cocking or uncocking, the brake system in the ACUslide stops the crossbow crank from unwinding.
The Nitro 505 will be available with TenPoint’s Evo-X Marksman Elite Variable Speed Scope, Burris Oracle X Rangefinding Scope, or the Garmin XERO X1i Rangefinding Scope. The TenPoint Nitro 505 Crossbow starts at $2999 in Moss Green with black TenPoint Scope.
The TenPoint Titan is the best-selling TenPoint model of all time. Every few years, the engineers at TenPoint make it a little better and this year’s Titan De-Cock is the best Titan ever. The Titan De-Cock is 10 fps faster than the M1 at 380 fps. But what makes this Titan truly revolutionary is the ability to de-cock the crossbow safely and easily using the new ACUdraw De-Cock. It’s a different design than ACUslide but ACUdraw De-Cock allows the user to cock and de-cock the crossbow without fear of losing grip on the handle and causing failure. When used as designed, the cocking and de-cocking motion stops on its own if your hand slips.
The Titan De-Cock is just 9” wide and 32.5” long. The crossbow includes TenPoint’s 3X ProView 2 Illuminated Scope and will be available for $999 with ACUdraw50 and $1099 with ACUdraw De-Cock.
The TenPoint Turbo is another legendary model from TenPoint. Much like the Titan, the Turbo is getting an upgrade in 2022 from the previous M1 model. The new Turbo S1 is getting an extra 10 fps, pushing its speed up to 390 fps. Even more impressive is the addition of TenPoint’s ACUslide System to the Turbo. The new TenPoint Turbo S1 Crossbow will be the most affordable TenPoint with ACUslide ever made at $1299.
ACUslide makes the crossbow more accurate by creating minimal string-to-barrel contact, extends the life of the string, and is safer to cock and decock. The Turbo S1 comes with TenPoint’s Rangemaster Pro Variable Speed Scope and is $1299 in Moss Green or $1399 in Vektra Camo.
Other changes to the 2022 TenPoint lineup include now offering the TenPoint Viper S400 with the Burris Oracle X Rangefinding Scope.
