Many limb systems immobilize the front section of the limb by using cumbersome pockets or bolts. The UltraFlex Limb system is held securely in place by a patent-pending pivoting pocket with an open design that makes the full length of the limb available for energy storage. This ultra-efficient advancement is paired with a past-parallel design that creates less limb movement through the draw cycle, resulting in a quiet, vibration-free shot. Get Serious about stealth and efficiency. Get Defiant.

The DFX Cam & 1/2 is the most versatile and customizable cam in Hoyt history. The DFX Cam & 1/2's new dual cable stops provide an exceptionally solid back wall, but we didn’t stop there. For those seeking complete rock-solid rigidity at full draw, we have also included our first-ever optional limb stop, as well. In addition, the rotating module system makes it easier than ever to dial-in your ideal draw length or even alter your draw length as you experiment with new releases or change your shooting form. Regardless of whether you are experimenting with draw length or your back wall preference, the DFX Cam & 1/2 allows you to dial in your ideal shooting experience without any hassle. Get Serious about versatility. Get Defiant.
MORE EFFECTIVE STRING
POSITION AT FULL DRAW

The Hoyt Carbon bows pictured, are nearly identical in riser length, but the 2016 Carbon Defiant delivers a much broader string angle than the previous model at full draw because the cam-to-cam distance at full draw is significantly larger. This allows our 30.5” models to feel like previous 34” versions, and our 34” inch versions to deliver shooting benefits similar to those of 37” target bows. Feel the difference for yourself.

Strategically placed dual planes magnify stiffness and strength, destroying riser vibration for a smooth shot.
3 DISTINCT
HOLLOW CARBON TUBES
Our carbon risers are a unique weave of 3 distinct hollow carbon tubes, strategically woven together to optimize structural stiffness throughout the entire user platform.
50+ LAYERS
OF HAND-LAID CARBON
Hand-laying layer upon layer of custom cut carbon components is a labor-intensive process, but the results are worth it. This painstaking process allows for precision-tuning and structural optimization that is simply not possible in other materials and processes. Each of our risers are purpose-built to maximize stiffness, optimize performance and reduce vibration for pinpoint accuracy and deadly stealth. That’s what makes Hoyt Carbon, #CarbonDoneRight.
53% LIGHTER
THAN SOLID VERSIONS
Forming our carbon risers with hollow-tube technology makes them 53% lighter while maintaining 97% of the stiffness and strength of a solid version.
7X TOUGHER
THAN ALUMINUM
Toughness is a measure of how much energy a material can absorb without permanent deformation. Carbon can take 7X as much abuse as aluminum without failing. Carbon is tough. We’re talking “park-a-truck-on-it” tough.
11X
STIFFNESS TO WEIGHT RATIO
The unique stiffness properties of carbon contribute to the “dead-in-the-hand” feel that carbon bows are known for. Carbon endures 11X as much force as aluminum without bending or twisting.
208X
MORE EFFECTIVE THERMAL INSULATION
Bowhunters are often surprised to find that carbon feels “warm to the touch” in bitter weather. Carbon is a great thermal insulator, 208X better than aluminum, which means it can handle extreme weather while remaining comfortable in your hand.
1,500
DRY-FIRE TEST
No Hoyt Carbon riser design is approved without first surviving our brutal 1,500 dry-fire test. Each dry-fire delivers more than 104 foot pounds of kinetic energy, sourced from 80 lbs of draw weight at a 30” draw.
