TenPoint Crossbow Technologies launches the world’s most technologically advanced crossbow ever produced – the new Vapor RS470. Delivering supercharged speeds up to 470 FPS and featuring the new revolutionary ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system, the industry’s premiere crossbow measures an ultra-narrow 6.5 inches wide and weighs an incredible half-pound less than previous TenPoint flagship models.

“The Vapor is the most accurate crossbow I have ever shot.” said Rick Bednar, TenPoint CEO. “We have always committed ourselves to building the best crossbows on the market and, while de-cocking is not a new concept to the crossbow market, the silent ACUslide is the first safe option to de-cock a crossbow with a crank.”

The new ACUslide features the company’s groundbreaking Auto-Brake Gear System, which allows for silent cocking and safe and controlled de-cocking of the crossbow. The Auto-Brake Gear System eliminates the potential of losing control which can lead to injury or costly bow damage during the de-cocking process. While de-cocking with the ACUslide, the user can remove their hand from the handle at any point, with no other action required - and the handle will stop in place.

The new 7 ½-inch XTEND Adjustable Crank Handle reduces cocking effort to 5 pounds and stores securely into the butt-stock.


The Vapor features a patented reverse-draw bow assembly that draws the string through the riser, creating an industry-leading 17-inch power stroke. The increased power stroke generates more speed with less draw weight – creating a smoother, quieter shot. The elongated power stroke also keeps the arrow nock engaged with the string for an additional 4 inches compared to traditional crossbows, before release – this is a critical component in performance, as the longer the nock remains engaged with the string, the more accurate the crossbow will be upon impact.In addition, this center-mounted riser provides superior balance, eliminating the “nose heavy” feel of traditional crossbows and making it easier to hold steady and increase accuracy.


The RX7-Cam system rotates an industry leading 404-degrees to produce speeds up to an unprecedented 470 feet-per-second. The crossbow’s revolutionary Vector-Quad 4 cable system technology utilizes four cables instead of the traditional two which eliminates cam lean and generates straight nock travel leading to same hole down-range accuracy.

The Vapor RS470 features the company’s new S1 trigger. This two-stage, zero-creep design features an advanced roller-sear system that delivers a consistent crisp, 3.5-pound pull. The trigger is equipped with a DFI (Dry-Fire-Inhibitor) and is fitted with a nylon-filament arrow retention brush that improves arrow grip and alignment to reduce noise and vibration. An integrated string stop system is also included to further reduce noise and vibration.

The crossbow has a NEW 20-inch MICRO-TRAC fluted aluminum barrel that reduces the flight deck surface by an incredible 50 percent. The minimal string-to-barrel contact increases accuracy and ensures the longest string life in the industry.

The barrel is fastened to the NEW ultra-light, two-piece TECH-X stock that features multiple weight reducing cutouts, as well as a hollow pocket that houses the ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system. The stock provides the shooter with ideal length-of-pull and combines with the EVO-X Marksman Precision Scope to yield perfect eye-level alignment.


Fully assembled, the crossbow weighs just 8 pounds (w/o accessories), measures only 31 inches (w/o stirrup) in length and shoots up to a supercharged 470 feet-per-second.

Decorated in Veil Alpine camo or Graphite Gray, the Vapor RS470 ships completely assembled and includes the most extensive Ready-To-Hunt package in the industry.

The package includes:


  • ACUslide cocking and de-cocking system
  • Evo-X Marksman Precision Scope
