Often imitated, never even close to replicated.

Kudos to our friends for trying, but Hoyt Carbon Technology is a success story that involves more than wrapping carbon around a frame. We came out swinging and never took our foot off the gas.

We’ve seen where some of you bowhunt, light is good, tougher is better.

Elk hunts, sheep hunts, or any hunt that makes your lungs burn is a good reminder why a ridiculous strength-to-weight ratio matters. Lightweight only works when it can take nature’s worst and still punch your tag.

When the ground is crunchy, you can appreciate a bow that’s warm to the touch.

One of the most amazing aspects of carbon is how it doesn’t freeze up, unlike a block of aluminum. That’s not just a comfort bonus, that’s a cold morning game changer.

Not all bows are created equal.

Introduced in 2010, the Carbon Matrix was the first bow of its kind. A proprietary O-tech and patent- pending design made it the most advanced and technically sound riser ever engineered, easily surviving our grueling 1,500 dry fire torture test.

But can your bow do this?

To prove just how tough our carbon bows are, we ran one over with a full-sized truck and did everything but make it part of the pavement. It survived like a champ and blew up YouTube with the shenanigans.
