Posted by Steven Ratterman on

The R29 Crossbow by Ravin offers next-level speed and unbelievable accuracy in a Compact, One-Of-A-Kind Package.

Ravin R29 Crossbow Package tested by Kiigns Hunting.

Featuring 430 feet per second of bone-splitting speed, the Ravin R29 is one of the most dynamic and compact crossbows on the market. The R29 is just 3" longer than the Ravin R26 making it 29" in total length, but offers 30 more feet per second to give hunter's that extra punch.

Included with the R29 package is the Ravin cocking handle for silently cocking this crossbow with just 12 lbs. of force. The Ravin illuminated scope offers hunters a clear, bright and focused view with multiple reticle lines indicating distances between 20 and 100 yards.

At a very light 6.75 lbs. in total weight, the R29 crossbow by Ravin is easy to carry on a full day hunt without sacrificing speed, power or accuracy with the kinetic energy of 164 foot pounds, offering hunter's the perfect power stalking package.

Ravin R29 Technology Review.

  • Ravin HeliCoil: The main engine behind Ravin crossbows. This revolutionary technology has elite industry changing advantages that all work together to create the most accuracy possible. HeliCoil technology coils the cables away from both the top and bottom of the cams, keeping the cams perfectly balanced. This allows the cams to rotate an incredible 340 degrees, while both cams remain perfectly level when drawing and shooting the crossbow. This revolutionary design creates an incredibly compact crossbow packed full of innovative features that produce rifle-like downrange accuracy.
  • Ravin Frictionless Flight Track System: This patent pending technology allows both the arrow and string to free float above the rail. Eliminating friction for consistent accuracy.
  • Ravin Track-Trigger Firing System: This patented built-in trigger mechanism that slides forward on the rail and clasps directly to the exact center of the string every time the crossbow is drawn. Allowing for straight-line nock travel.
  • Ravin Versa-Draw Cocking System: One of the most revolutionary design advantages provided by HeliCoil technology is the Versa-Draw Cocking System. Working in conjunction with the Trac-Trigger Firing System this ultra-compact fully integrated cocking mechanism is built into the sleek stock design. Featuring a very light 12-pounds of cocking force. The Versa-Draw Cocking System is ambidextrous and will easily cock and un-cock your Ravin crossbow.
