This is carbon done right.

You are no ordinary archer, and this is no ordinary bow. This is hand-laid, thermoset carbon; a painstaking cross between meticulous engineering and devoted craftsmanship. Mastered only by Hoyt, carbon’s strength, weight and thermal characteristics make it the ideal material for premier bow construc­tion. From vibration reduction and cold-weather comfort, to consistent accuracy and rugged durability, the advantages of carbon are definite. This is next-level bow­ design that flies in the face of industry norms. This is carbon done right.

Packed with innovative cam, pocket and limb technologies, along with a 7” brace height, the Carbon Defiant delivers unmatched forgiveness and accuracy to help you perform in every situation, from 3D to field, indoor and outdoor. Get Serious. Get Defiant.

Engineering elements and benefits include:

  • 50 individually hand-laid carbon components for ultimate stiffness and strength.
  • 3 strategically-woven hollow carbon tubes, precision tuned by our engineers.
  • Offset Riser Technology that kills vibration and adds strength and stiffness.
  • Carbon’s warm-to-the-touch nature to keep you comfortable and focused even in frigid weather.
  • The smooth, fast and powerful DFX Cam & ½ system.
  • Dual Cable Stops for a solid back wall.
  • An optional limb stop that provides a no-play back wall, for customizable comfort and consistency.
  • Rotating cam modules, allowing easy adjustment without module replacement or a bow press.
  • Multilayer laminate UltraFlex limbs.
  • A zero-tolerance limb-to-pocket connection for precision and accuracy.
  • The Zero Torque Cable Guard system, which eliminates torque for dead-on alignment.
  • Synergy between DFX cams and UltraFlex limbs, increasing the axle-to-axle measurement at full draw, and improving form, comfort and accuracy. (See diagram below.)

EFFECTIVE STRING ANGLE AT FULL DRAW

Head position is vital to the consistency and accuracy of your shot. Our new UltraFlex Limb and DFX Cam Systems work together to deliver a dramatically broader string angle, an increased full-draw axle-to-axle measurement and a more optimal peep position. These innovations allow a more relaxed, strain-free posture at full draw, and reduce facial contact, string pressure, and eye fatigue at anchor.

The result is a 2016 30.5-inch bow that feels and performs like last year’s 34-inch equivalent. Yes, you read that right, your compact target bow will feel and perform like a stable and forgiving 34-inch bow, and your 34-inch bow will perform like a 37-inch target dream bow. If the numbers don’t convince you, your experience at full-draw and your tightened arrow groups will.
