Ravin® Upgrades

The Ravin crossbows, loved by many, leave a lot of room for customization, optimization, and upgrades. For all current series (R9, R15, R10, R20, R26, and R29), we offer many accessories: AeroBolt®, Firenock®, Titanium Fastener Upgrade Kits, Hollow Titanium Axles, and the AeroRest™.

The Firenock Arrow

All Ravin crossbows, with the exception of the R10 and R26 (20”), require a minimum of a 21” projectile when the use of a Firenock Ravin AeroRest however, that minimum changes.  In addition, we suggest a 22” projectile for best accuracy.

Custom-built, the Firenock AeroBolt Series (II & III) crossbow arrows can be cut down to any length and thus can be used on any Ravin crossbow.  Additionally, all AeroBolts, at purchase, can be built for a 2, 3 or 4 vane configuration.

For those who want to use the Ravin for ultra big game, the AeroBolt II Dragon Slayer is also available. From our research, Ravin OEM arrow rest is know to handle maximum arrow weight of no more than 450 grains. In order to use these big game crossbow arrows which can weight upwards of 1,200 grains, Firenock AeroRest for Ravin is recommended.

Note : Like all common crossbow arrows on the market, the internal diameter of all AeroBolt is 0.300" for simple and easy nock style and crossbow exchanges.

The Firenock

As of today, Firenock offers a total of 14 nock styles. Of those 14, two are well-suited for serving sizes often found on crossbows such as Ravins. As always, to ensure that the system will shoot correctly, the nock must clip onto the string perfectly. Note the next few sentences to understand how a crossbow’s serving size will affect your Firenock nock’s clip capacity. For any Ravin crossbows which boast a 0.132" OD serving, “U” is the best option. On the other hand, for any Ravin crossbows which possess a 0.122” OD serving, “C” is the best option.

Like many of our Firenock styles, "U" and "C" are offered in a plethora of colors. With three options for the color of nock and six options for the color of the LED, there is a total of 18 color combinations for each style. Additionally, there are up to three different functions of light: solidly lit, solidly lit for 6 seconds and then blink, and auto shut-off 17 seconds after fired.

Disclaimer: Firenock does not make nocks for Ravin crossbows or any specific type of crossbows. All Firenock nocks are and have always been designed to fit particular IDs of shafts with specific ODs of string servings. Please check and double-check the exact fit of your nocks via your string serving or bodily harm could occur.

Titanium Fastener Kit

Here, while its light weight offers a 50% reduction in weight, titanium's rigidity is the less known but much more significant characteristic. Although admittedly acknowledged and employed for years, the application of it within the archery sphere has only been correctly apprehended by Firenock.  See, with such rigidity, overall vibration is minimized which leads to the consumption of excess energy.  Why might you want to have excess energy absorbed?   Because then your bow will then shake less and shoot calmer.

Hollow Titanium Axles

An option available at purchase of a Titanium Fastener Upgrade Kit for Ravin are our custom hollow titanium axles. Why should you purchase a kit? Well, consider this–your cam is the focal point of the kinetic energy being exerted on your crossbow and at 400+ fps, there’s a lot of that energy to go around. With our upgrade, our kit alone would reduce close to 420 grains in moving mass.

Twin Pulley Cable System

Last year, after Firenock ventured into custom upgrades for the Ravin Crossbow Series, one of the main requests from users was a solution to the Ravin cable stretch issues. Our licensing and production of this double U.S. patented Pulley & Cable Set Kit is our response.

This kit utilizes two US patents owned by Scorpyd Crossbows and licensed by Firenock (US Patent: 9,243,861 and 9,234,719). Designed to bolt on with zero modifications to your bow, the full kit replaces all four of the Ravin factory cables and involves two custom 420 Stainless 53 HRC hardened parts, four titanium screws, and two cables.

There are many fantastic benefits to this dual US patented design. Most significantly, the upper and lower cables are self-timed. This means that cam lean is virtually eliminated as cable length differences are the main culprit of cable stretch. Additionally, the stress from working to sync up and keep all four cables from twisting is significantly reduced. Note finally that as cable length increases, shock absorption does also, leading to an ultimately quieter bow.

Disclaimer : This kit does not include any Ravin authorized parts. Therefore, note that you may lose your factory warranty if you choose to install this set within the first five years of original purchase. However, like all Firenock products, you have our 30 days no-fault warranty, exchange, and refund at purchase from our webstore.
