NEW HIGH-SPEED KUMA COMPOUND BOW HEADS BEAR LEGEND SERIES ROSTER
EVANSVILLE, IN (October 4, 2017) – Bear Archery announced today the launch of its flagship compound bow to headline the 2018 lineup. The all-new Kuma is rooted in inspiration from Fred Bear, the company's founder, who developed a legacy of innovation and a heritage of introducing new technologies that are accessible to everyone.
The Kuma is included in Bear's Legend Series™, an exclusive dealer-only line of four ultra-competitive compound bows, and will be offered at a retail price of $899.99. The Kuma offers the best of both worlds bringing together speed and shootability. This hybrid cam bow launches arrows at 345 feet per second and features a smooth draw and a high-level of forgiveness.
"The Kuma offers both high-speed and shootability in one amazing package," says Dave Parker, Archery General Manager. "Shootability means having a smooth draw cycle, a solid back wall, and no hand shock upon release."
The Kuma has a peak draw weight of 55-70 lbs. and an axle-to-axle of 33". Featuring the Bear Cage machining technique, the rigid 1" thick forged riser has been strategically "hollowed out" to lighten the load – yet still prevents side to side flex increasing accuracy. The bow has a Roller HingeGuard System to reduce lateral torque and friction, and Max Preload Quad Limbs designed to evenly distribute load across the entire limb system for maximum strength at key points of stress during and after the release. The Kuma also offers the newly-designed, sleeker, low-profile SonicStops™ string recoil suppressors and the ShockWaves limb dampening system to reduce vibration and noise.
