The Bear Escape SD is the short draw version of the new flagship compound bow from Bear that was released for the 2016 season. The bow is designed to cater for the female shooter with a reduced draw length and lighter draw weight options but it remains seriously fast and powerful.

As with the Escape, the bow features advanced 7075 aluminum technology for good balance and even load distribution.

The bow is powered by the new H15 hybrid cam system and with the max pre-load quad limbs there is a great deal of energy stored before being released.The draw length of the bow ranges from 23.5 inches to 27.5 inches and the draw weights are 40 to 55 pounds.

In order to combat hand torque at the point of release the bow features the Bear hinge guard. The riser of the bow has been equipped with bi-dimensionally adjustable top and bottom string suppressors and rubber riser inserts to absorb vibration and sound.

The bow also comes in a number of finishes with the most popular finishes being RealTree Xtra camo as well as shadow, sand and olive.

Although Bear Archery has released the bow stating that it is "purpose built for those ladies obsessed with bow performance in a lightweight platform" the bow is far more than a ladies bow and should be seriously considered by anyone who is looking for a smooth and powerful short draw compound bow.

What they are saying in the forums about the Bear Escape SD

I have shot the bow. The draw cycle was similar to the regular men's bows. The reason I mention this is some of Bears first ladies/short draw bows did not have a decent draw cycle. Most Bear bows today load up early in the draw cycle and then are very smooth to the back wall. The SD is like that.
