For those who don’t care for the multi-fabbed riser of introductory Alpine Silverado bows, the Ventura offers a streamlined, one-piece riser. The lines are fitted with VX pockets to create a 35-inch length and parallel split limbs.
It’s powered by the speedy 80-percent let-off, hybrid Velocitec Cam System for smooth draw and arrow speeds advertised at 320 fps IBO. It includes a forgiving 73⁄4-inch brace, weighs 4.3 pounds and comes in draw weights from 60 to 70 pounds.
