Headlining the new range of Bear compound bows are the EKO cam system-powered bows such as the Redemption and the Status.

The Redemption is the new flagship bow of the range and heads up 4 new models for the 2021 season, the others being the Inception, Whitetail Legend in the Legend series and the Legit from the Main Line.

The EKO Cam system uses a 3-track modular 2 cam system to create Equalized Kinetic Orientation (EKO) which results in perfect cam synchronization. The design of the tracks eliminates cam lean to improve the consistency of its performance.

With up to 90% let off, the EKO Cam System allows the user to pick their preferred let off with four different positions at 75%, 80%, 85%, or 90% at each draw length without sacrificing performance. The EKO Cam System uses a rotating module for draw length adjustment without the use of a bow press.

Bow hunters looking to equip themselves fully with a range of accessories will be interested to find that some of the bows are now offered with a choice of either the Ready to Hunt kit or the Ready To Hunt Extra kit.

The EXTRA kit includes 5 Trophy Ridge Wrath Arrows pre-cut to 29" with install inserts with 100 grain field points, plus 5 loose inserts, Trophy Ridge Release and 3 Rocket Siphon Broadheads.

The EXTRA kit is offered with the Species, the Legit and the Royale compound bows.

The entire range of compound bows that comprise the 2021 line-up have been listed below complete with a full description of each bow’s features and specifications.

Further details about all of the products in the Bear range can be found by visiting the Bear Archery website.
