Barnett’s Buck Commander Extreme Ultralite (BCX)

Barnett’s proprietary Carbonlite Riser Technology (CRT) shifts the balance point away from the riser and back to the shoulder of the shooter allowing for improved maneuverability and faster target acquisition. Barnett’s unique patent-protected, ultra-light, super-strong Carbonlite riser boasts an incredible 5-to-1 safety factor and provides the perfect balance of weight and speed.

The aluminum flight track produces the smoothest shot in the industry without the added weight. The BCX’s Crosswire® premium crossbow strings are designed from a proprietary manufacturing process that blends Barnett’s fibers with the industry’s toughest-serving materials, resulting in the most stable and reliable string in the industry.

The system also boasts a revolutionary crank attachment built into the stock, allowing for the easy installation of the optional crank-cocking device. Thanks to the crank-cocking device, the shooter will never need someone else to cock the bow for him or her.
