Gurit Bows Hit the Mark

03 November 2006

Two Olympic recurve bows, manufactured from Gurit materials, smashed world records at the recent Archery Championships in Hungary.

One bow scored the highest number of points in 3D target shooting, speeding up to 232 ft/sec at only 42lbs. Another bow achieved an impressive speed of 242 ft/sec at 52lbs, making it the world’s fastest recurve bow produced to date. Both bows were designed by experienced Swiss craftsman Mr. Willi Heuberger and manufactured from Gurit’s carbon fibre pultrusions.
