PSE Archery recently caused a stir when it unveiled the Carbon Air, a compound bow that the company claims is the lightest high-performance carbon bow in the world. Weighing just 3.2 pounds, the monocoque-designed Carbon Air is built in one monolithic carbon fiber shell, which PSE says gives the bow immense strength while still remaining lightweight.
“PSE first introduced a carbon bow back in 1996, but today there are improved methods of manufacturing carbon that allow products to be lighter, more rigid and almost indestructible. That’s why PSE decided it was time to rewrite the book on carbon bow technology… and we’ve done just that,” PSE stated on its website.
Inside the carbon fiber shell is a proprietary filling material that absorbs vibration and suppresses noise, making the bow extremely quiet in action. The Carbon Air also comes with a hybrid HD cam system, Shock Modz limb dampeners, and an exclusive “Arch Bridge” design. The bow comes in draw weights of 50, 60, 65, and 70 pounds.

Carbon Air is expected to retail for $1,499 and is currently not available online, meaning that prospective customers will have to seek one out in stores.
