Wicked Ridge Invader M1 Details
The updated Invader measures 5.5 inches narrower and 2.5 inches shorter than the original. It weighs in a 5.8 pounds overall and 32 inches long. It comes with an ACUdraw built-in crank cocking device fully integrated into the stock; the mechanism reduces draw weight down to 5 pounds.
“The Invader has been the best-selling Wicked Ridge crossbow since we started the company in 2010,” said TenPoint CEO, Phil Bednar. “The new Invader M1 is narrower, shorter, and lighter than ever before. The built-in ACUdraw crank cocking device and Built in America quality craftsmanship take this model to a new level.”
The Invader M1 features a 9.5-inch wide, 190-pound bow assembly. It utilizes VX-5 reverse cams that elongate the power stroke and increase rotation to produce speeds up to 390 fps, according to Wicked Ridge. The cast aluminum riser includes 11-inch TPX Limbs, DynaFLIGHT 97 string and cables and lightweight aluminum limb pockets.
A Pro-View 400 lighted scope helps get hunters on target. It comes illuminated red or green, featuring an updated reticle that provides a cleaner view for the shooter, according to Wicked Ridge. It offers aim points out to 70 yards. The 4×32 scope accommodates crossbows shooting between 380-420 fps.
The Invader M1 also features a Tactical X stock. Molded from glass-filled polypropylene and configured with optimal comb height and length-of-pull, it utilizes cutouts to reduce weight and improve balance. Additionally, large safety wings on top of the crossbow’s fore-grip help prevent a shooter’s fingers and thumb from moving above the flight deck while shooting the crossbow.
The Invader M1 comes pre-sighted and ships with three carbon arrows and a quiver. Retail price is $749. For more info, visit tenpointcrossbows.com.
