Hoyt is an industry leader in carbon technology, and its carbon-riser bows have forever changed the way we think of riser materials. For 2020, this archery pioneer is expanding its RX line by adding the Alpha (shorter axle-to-axle length), Ultra (longer axle-to-axle length) and Turbo (maximized speed) RX-4 models. Our test bow, the Alpha, features Hoyt’s Hollow Carbon Tube riser construction, ZTR Cam & ½ system with 3-D Shift Technology, Custom-Tune grip, Integrate rest-mounting plate and other exciting features.
Hoyt’s new ZTR Cam & ½ system is built on the shoulders of its ZT Series, which is known for producing fast arrow speeds while maintaining a smooth draw. The company’s patent-pending Split Cable system uses a unique yoke and split ends that connect to wide-stance modules to balance the load evenly on either side of the lower cam, resulting in reduced cam lean. A spiraled groove on the bottom cam’s module causes one side of the split cable to move closer to the centerline of the bow during the draw cycle, resulting in Hoyt’s 3-D Shift Technology, which is designed to eliminate inherent torque and, therefore, the need for a flexing cable guard.
