Aerovane®

Designed in US Illinois, Aerovane is the first ever vane to employ (US Patent: 8,105,189) Airfoil Technology for archery arrows. Aerovane does not look like and does not work like traditional vanes; it is not flat but instead is shaped like and works like an airplane wing. Traditional vanes use drag to induce arrow rotation which fundamentally causes a huge loss in energy and speed Aerovane however, equipped our Airfoil Technology, not only induces or initiates arrow rotation, but also maintains it.

Aerovane also flies quieter than traditional vanes because Aerovane’s frontal curvature, the wing itself, takes heavily from an owl, the only bird on earth that can fly in complete silence. Fletched with Aerovane, your archery projectile will fly flatter, straighter, and more accurately and quietly.

You can shoot Aerovane with confidence.

Development

When the first Aerovane (Aerovane I) was introduced in the spring of 2008, a lot about the connection between aerodynamics and arrow dynamics was not fully understood. For example, Aerovane I’s smooth surface was designed with the intention to decrease frictional air drag. We soon discovered a smooth surface area does the opposite—it increases frictional air drag. In order to resolve this problem, we went to consult subsonic airfoil expert, Professor Michael Selig of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). Afterwards, Aerovane II was born. Along with new specifically calculated microtextured zones, the main additional feature to the Aerovane II was its single airfoil design. After finally accomplishing a vane that could indeed decrease frictional drag with, again, the assistance of Professor Selig, we also took advantage of Aerodynamics Elasticity Memory (AEM). And via AEM, not only could we minimize drag but we could also promote circular lift, allowing your arrow to shoot flatter and higher.

With the experience of building Aerovane I, Aerovane II, and with the launch of Aerovane Jig, Aerovane III was introduced in 2013. In brief, Aerovane III is the more aggressive design of Aerovane II. Aerovane III incorporates the results of our research in the aerodynamic and arrow dynamic relationship such as the decision [1] to increase the size of the airfoil, [2] to add another micro-textured zone, and [3] to add a winglet. Designed especially to virtually ignore strong crosswinds, Aerovane III is the ultimate vane for today’s high speed arrows.
