Evansville, IN (September 28, 2020) — Bear Archery and its family of brands have announced the early release of another impressive lineup of bows and accessories for the 2021 model year. The refreshed suite of archery equipment includes several new compound and traditional bows, as well as an all new crossbow for the BearX crossbow lineup.

Last year, the team at Bear unveiled the Status EKO with the company’s highly customizable let off position cams. For 2021, Bear is back at it with the all-new Redemption EKO. The new flagship model utilizes the company’s groundbreaking Vibration Reduction System (VRS) to reduce hand shock and vibration through the riser by upwards of 25%. The new VRS works in conjunction with the existing Shockwaves Dampening System to reduce limb vibration as well. The Redemption EKO brings a slew of impressive specs to the bow lab with a 31” axle to axle, 6.25” brace height, and weight of 4.1lbs – making it the perfect choice for the tree stand, hunting blind, or spot and stalk hunter.

Also new for 2021 is Bear’s Legit with an industry first Ready to Hunt Extra package. The Ready to Hunt (RTH) package was introduced by Bear several years ago and included everything an archer would need to get in the woods with their bow; Trophy Ridge sight, rest, quiver, and stabilizer. For 2021, Bear is raising the stakes with their RTH Extra package which includes everything in the RTH kit plus three Rocket Siphon broadheads, Trophy Ridge Wrath arrows with 100 grain field points, and a Trophy Ridge ArchX release.

“It was Fred Bear’s goal to make archery accessible to anyone, no matter their budget or level of experience.” said company General Manager, Jon Lene. “The Ready to Hunt Extra package does just that by presenting an affordable and all-encompassing solution to get you into the woods with the proper gear at a great price.”

In addition to the Redemption EKO and Legit, Bear is introducing two other Legend Series bows to the compound lineup. Several changes have been made to the traditional suite including a new Mag Riser Take Down made from lightweight aluminum composite, Shedua, as an all-new wood choice for the Super Kodiak, Super Grizzly, Grizzly, and Cheyenne; and an Impact series crossbow that includes a silent cocking crank. The company plans to begin shipping 2021 product orders before the end of the year with most customers taking delivery from their dealer after the first of the year. Information on the 2021 Bear Archery lineup can be found on the Bear Archery website, beararchery.com or by contacting your local Bear Archery dealer.
