Elite Archery New KURE Hunting Bow & REZULT Competition Bow
Elite Archery announced new technology to their 2020 bow line up. We take a look at the updates to the 2020 Elite Archery lineup, including the Elite KURE hunting bow and Elite REZULT Competition bow.
ASYM TRI-TRACK CAM SYSTEM
Elite Archery achieves the hallmark feel of their bows through smooth-drawing cam systems that are later to peak weight, fall over gently into a deep valley, and provide a high let-off against a solid back wall. The new ASYM TRI-TRACK CAM SYSTEM – exclusively from Elite – delivers that Elite hallmark feeling. This new cam system is fully synchronized and marks the evolution of Elite’s cam design. The ASYM Tri-Track Cam is a laterally balanced cam, which reduces lateral nock travel. The new ASYM Tri-Track Cam provides a balanced cam system with unparalleled stability. This new system is asymmetrical, top and bottom, delivering straight and level vertical nock travel in a fully synchronized system.

VERSA MOD ROTATING MODULE
The combination of the ASYM Tri-Track Cam with Elite’s exclusive new VERSA MOD ROTATING MODULE allows for an industry-leading seven full inches of draw length adjustment without the need for a bow press. Archers will find that they can now adjust their draw length in 1/4″ increments with the Versa Mod rotating module. Adding to the ability to adjust and tune, the feel of the back wall can be adjusted in the new system by using adjustable cable stops or adjustable limb stops. Archers can also choose to use both cable and limb stops to achieve their perfect feel. The combination of cable and limb stops result in more than 20 adjustment positions to suit any archer.
STABILOCK LIMB POCKETS
Elite Archery’s new lineup of bows includes the new STABILOCK TWO-PIECE LIMB POCKETS. These new limb pockets are both bigger and wider than previous iterations of limb pockets, leading to more stability. The pockets also feature 1/4″ inch axles, larger bearings, and a wider limb stance. Combined with the laterally balanced ASYM Tri-Track Cam and Versa Mod, the stability of the new Elite lineup is unmatched in the industry.
SET (SIMPLIFIED. EXACT. TUNING.) TECHNOLOGY
Perhaps the most exciting of Elite Archery’s new technologies is the introduction of SET TECHNOLOGY. S.E.T. stands for Simplified Exact Tuning and delivers on that promise out of the box. S.E.T. Technology is a micro-adjustable tuning system – exclusively available on 2020 Elite bows the KURE and REZULT. SET Technology is designed to eliminate the time and frustration associated with tuning many modern compound bows. SET Technology allows the archer to micro-adjust the angle of the limb pocket pivot and delivers micro-adjustments to the attitude (or lean) of the cam. Put simply, SET Technology works by providing the easiest, most effective tuning method on the market today. All without the need for a bow press.
The effect of adjusting SET Technology is similar to “yoke tuning” or “shimming,” but has been engineered to be more effective than either of these methods. Adjusting the SET Technology rotates the pocket pivot around the pivot shoulder screw to correct for tail right (right tear on paper tuning) or tail left (left tear on paper tuning) conditions.

“The stability of this platform, combined with the adjustability and tuneability of these bows is astounding,” said Nathan Brooks, professional archer and product development consultant. “For dealers and users that have overlooked Elite in the past: look again. These technologies, these bows, are the solution for bow tuning frustrations. They save time and make it possible to tune a bow for any archer. Any grip. Any rest. Any arrows. Any broadheads. It’s amazing how well designed and how effective this system is.”
ELITE ARCHERY REZULT COMPETITION BOW
Put simply, this bow tunes faster and easier than any bow on the market today. It’s been specifically designed to save the dealer and competitive archer the time – and sometimes frustration – associated with tuning a bow. With micro-adjustments to the attitude of the cams, the bow can be tuned to compensate for any arrow. Any rest. Any archer’s grip. And, it can be done right at the line, with no need for a bow press.
