Two-Track Technology for AST & ARC Cam's

The two track cam is engineered to use the same track of the cam to perform both the cable take up and cable let out functions. This cam-to-cam rigging forces both cams to act as one with no possibility of independent movement. That greatly enhances accuracy and makes tuning the bow with a wide range of arrows simple. With both cams acting as a single unit, Winchester Archery engineers are able to focus on specific characteristics like exceptional let off, high arrow speed, and smooth draw without having to account for synchronization issues.

AST Cam (Quicksilver 31 and 34)

The AST (Accu Speed Technology) cam is the driving force behind the QS 31 and 34 bows. Exceptionally high arrow speed, smooth draw and an incredibly quiet shot are hallmarks of the AST cam.


Independent draw length modules are available in one half inch increments and allow adjustment to exactly fit each bowhunter while maintaining the utmost efficiency. Adjustable let-off and a granite solid back wall are standard features of the AST cam system. The bowhunter looking for trajectory flattening speed with accuracy built in is looking for the AST system.

ARC Cam (Vaquero)

The ARC (Advanced Rotating Cam) system, with its built in module, allows for very convenient draw length adjustment using the built in rotating module without the need for a bow press. Providing great arrow speed with a remarkably smooth draw is the main design focus of the ARC system. With that goal accomplished Winchester Archery designers were able to build in features like rock solid back wall and adjustable let-off to make this one of the best all-around cam systems available to today’s bowhunters.

Rider Cam (Laredo,Thunderbolt and Destiny)

Incredible adjustability and performance are hallmarks of the Rider Cam. As the draw length is increased through its 11” of adjustment the draw weight range of the bow increases to match the growing archer. The Rider cam gives dramatic performance in all of its settings with speeds up to 290 fps.

Additional Technology

Directional Venting

The beautifully machined lightening holes, or vents, in the risers of every Winchester Archery bow are not only good looking but serve a very important function. They are specifically designed to direct vibration towards the stainless steel stabilizer bushing so that your stabilizer can be most effective. This important feature allows you to use a smaller stabilizer and get better results.

Optional Grips

Standard on Quicksilver bows and as an option on other models, three different grips allow you to customize your bow and find a grip shape that meets your needs. Whether you prefer a narrow 2-piece style target grip in rubber or wood, or a solid insulating 1 piece grip, both are available for all Winchester Archery adult bows.

Stainless Steel Hardware

The use of stainless steel hardware on all Winchester Archery bows and Crossbows demonstrates our commitment to quality. Normal steel components rust…period. Stainless steel gives you the confidence to hunt in less than ideal conditions without concern for rusting screws ruining your bow. Why settle for anything less on a high quality hunting tool?


These simple but effective accessories are found on all Winchester Archery bows and crossbows. Speedsters help increase bow speed by increasing string momentum during the shot. In turn, the soft material acts as a silencer for the string and helps reduce residual string vibration after the shot.

Ultra Glide Dual Roller Cable Guard

The dual rollers in the Ultra Glide cable guard are mounted on nearly frictionless stainless steel sealed bearings to provide the smoothest draw possible and to enhance arrow speed. Capturing the cables during and after the shot helps reduce noise and vibration in what is already an exceptionally quiet bow.

Stabil-Lock Limb Pockets

Locking the limbs in a vice-like grip is the first job of these beautifully engineered limb pockets. Creating a stable platform for those limbs while shaving as much weight as possible was the challenge and clearly the challenge was met successfully. Limb pockets that are solid, secure and lightweight enhance the performance of each bow.

“Sudden Stop” String Dampener

Lateral adjustment on the Sudden Stop allows the bowhunter to find the ideal “sweet spot” for the string to land on the noise killing control cushion dampener. True 3K Carbon Fiber Weave extension rods (not fiberglass like other string stops) contribute to the dampening characteristics of the Sudden Stop & allow Winchester Archery bows to be the quietest ever.
