2018 New Product: Elite Ritual Bow
Elite Ritual Compound Bow

As Elite Archery has made a habit of doing for several years now, the new Ritual compound bow was a head-turner at the 2018 ATA Show in Indianapolis

For bowhunters, it’s all about the annual fall and winter rituals as we gather gear, climb mountains, ascend into treestands, and chase the antlered and horned animals of our hunting dreams.

For the bow building engineers at Elite Archery, it’s all about building the world’s most efficient bows, compounds like the new 2018 Ritual that perform flawlessly in the field with features like:

  • IBO Speed of 335 feet per second
  • Mass weight of 4.3 pounds
  • Axle-to-axle length of 33 ¼ inches (+/- 1⁄8 of an inch)
  • Brace height of 6 ¾ inches (+/- 1⁄8 of an inch)
  • Draw weights ranging from 50 to 70 pounds
  • Draw lengths ranging from 26.5 to 31.0 inches
  • 10 riser color options and 7 riser camo options
  • Ninja Black limbs

Defining higher efficiency as the bow transferring more energy to the arrow, Elite Archery says that it’s 2018 Ritual checks in with an 88% efficiency rating, the most efficient bow the company has ever built.

With Elite’s upper riser cage design, the Ritual’s durable limbs give rock solid alignment with the riser, all the while as the company’s new cam design and split limbs make up a bow that is a joy to shoot on the range or in the field.

A variety of customizing options allow customers to build the bow that they want within the Ritual's draw length and draw weight ranges, as well as choosing from 10 different riser colors and 7 different riser camo options to go with the Ninja Black limbs. For the record, riser camo options include KUIU Vias and Verde; Realtree Snow, MAX-1, and Xtra; and Mossy Oak Mountain Country and Break Up Country.

With customers able to order their customized bow directly from the Elite Archery factory, the perfect bow can be assembled, delivered to a hunter’s door, and then fine-tuned in a home bow shop or at a local Elite Archery official dealer.

With a legacy of building top-end bows, the new Ritual compound may be the smoothest bow that Elite Archery has ever produced. And that should excite archers everywhere in 2018!
