Ravin R15 Crossbow

There’s a new crossbow hitting the shelves for 2017 that is really turning some heads. We had a chance to catch up with the guys at Ravin Crossbows to get a look at their new R15 crossbow. The company is one of the newest in the industry, having just released their first crossbow (R9) back in the fall of 2016.

Justin Leesmann shows off the new Ravin R15 Crossbow.

The Ravin line features HeliCoil technology, setting a new standard in downrange accuracy. And their new R15 was designed to deliver even more velocity and shooting precision than ever before.

Sleek in design and big on performance, the Ravin R15 is one slick crossbow.

The R15 is zipping arrows through the chronograph at a full 425 feet per second. It hammers the target with 160 foot pounds of kinetic energy. The design of the R15 incorporates perfectly balanced cams, straight nock travel, and friction-free arrow delivery.

The Ravin R15 is a smooth shooter…and fast.

HeliCoil technology coils the cables away from both the top and bottom of the cams in helical grooves, allowing the cams to rotate nearly 340 degrees. Both cams remain perfectly level when drawing and shooting the crossbow.

The feature-packed Ravin R15 is raising the bar in crossbow design.

The thing that caught my eye from the start was how slim this bow is. It measures just six inches axle-to-axle when fully drawn. This compact geometry gives the R15 rifle-like handling. It’s perfectly suited for the ground blind or tight quarters of the treestand. Be sure to check it out at www.ravincrossbows.com.

Specs for the R15 include:  Speed /425 fps, Power-Stroke / 13″, KE / 160.5 ft. lbs., Axle-to-Axle / 6″ cocked, Axle-to-Axle / 10.5″ un-cocked, Total Length / 34.5″, Physical Weight / 6.9 lbs.


  1. Tim mcarty says:

    How and when can I order the R15

  2. Can I install lighted nocks on the Raven arrow bolts.

  3. What might the kinetic energy be for the Ravin R15?

  4. ded gjolaj says:

    where can I buy one

  5. Only thing that would make my R15 better would be lighted nocks for it Ravin still lookin an waiting. Come on Ravin you got a great bow love mine ! How about give in us a lighted nock to go with the bow????

  6. walter senkow says:

    I agree. Makes no sense having a bow that can shoot that far without lighted nocks to track the arrow. I will use my old crossbow until I see what They do.

  7. I removed the reinforced nock collar and installed a firenock U lighted nock. Have yet to try that combo but have used the firenock on an aluminum bolt in R15 and works fine.

  8. To clarify about removing the reinforced nock collar I simply used a small heat gun and warmed up the collar some then pulled out
    with a pliers. Comes out real easy.

  9. Reggie bryan says:

    Yes it would be great to have lighted nock. I think thay are a must. But the bow is great lets get nocks made….
