Noise and Vibration

The noise reduction system on Suppressor 400 TD is undoubtedly the most comprehensive and efficient. It comes with both Sound Deadening System and Air brakes that help to eliminate vibration and quiet down it.

The SDS Silencing System and airbrakes consists of rubber R.A.V.S. that are wrapped around the limbs themselves. It helps to dissipate vibration after a shot. This S.D.S. system consists of five main components:

  • Ex-Shox dampening trusses wedges- it installed between strings and limbs to reduce the impact on the bowstring when shooting.
  • String stars- Reduce Oscillation.
  • Recoil-Ant Vibration System (R.A.V.S.) silencers- These are wrapped around the limbs for additional noise absorption.
  • Hold down spring- It retains arrow securely and avoids additional unwanted sounds.
  • Over-molded stirrup with rubberized coating- It reduces noise & vibration and cancels out the noise on the firing of the crossbow.

The Air brakes are metal bars on the front of the crossbow that really helps to quiet this bow down. However, installing Air Brakes onto any Excalibur crossbow will cause you to lose a little bit of speed though it is nothing to be concerned with at all. It’ll shoot around 388 to 390 feet per second with Air Brakes installed.
