Garmin selects Ravin Crossbows for new Xero X1i crossbow scope integration

Collaboration offers hunters faster setup time and increased accuracy

OLATHE, Kan./August 15, 2023 – Garmin (NYSE: GRMN) today announced an integration of its Xero® X1i crossbow scope with Ravin Crossbow’s precision-based platforms. The new custom Xero X1i scope is preloaded with the technical specifications of all Ravin Crossbow models and adjusts aiming solutions based on each model’s specifications, providing hunters with unparalleled “out of the box” accuracy and blistering fast setup times. 

“Ravin Crossbows paired with the Xero X1i provide a new level of precision aiming that will meet the demands of even the most advanced crossbow hunters. Simply put, the combination of Ravin’s industry-leading accuracy with the superior ranging and aiming capabilities of the Xero X1i creates one of the most comprehensive crossbow shooting experiences available.” – Bryan Yalowitz, Garmin outdoor product strategy director

Innovative accuracy

Garmin Xero X1i is an electro-optic based crossbow scope with a built-in laser range finder that offers one of the most advanced crossbow aiming platforms on the market, thanks to a proprietary algorithm that compensates for distance and angle. With 3.5x magnification and digital overlays to improve sighting precision, the Xero X1i can range game targets up to 250 yards away and reflective targets up to 500 yards away. Integrating the technical information for each individual Ravin Crossbow assists the Xero X1i in calibrating an aiming solution, so users can be confident they have the most accurate pin placement for the specific hunting situation. 

Streamlined setup 

Sighting in the Xero X1i scope with Ravin specifications is easy and fast. After mounting the scope, customers will select their Ravin Crossbow model on the Xero X1i scope’s digital screen. The user then sights in at 20 yards, and the Xero X1i’s advanced processor automatically adjusts its ballistic algorithm for the Ravin model chosen based on the particular crossbow’s technical specifications. The scope then provides digital pins out to 150 yards, allowing for setup times as short as 15 minutes. 

Ravin enthusiasts will also appreciate a custom Ravin internal look and feel thanks to the scope’s Ravin-branded splash screen, new ranging screen, and a customized aiming reticle.
