360 Damper System
Formula XD features a new 360 Damper System - an all-axes vibration killer providing a significant improvement in shot-feel. The Formula XD is designed with Dynamic Flex Control to provide riser flex where it’s ideal, and stiffness where it’s needed. Formula XD will provide a shot experience like no other Hoyt before it.

String Tension Technology
This unprecedented advancement and innovation in recurve archery allows shooters to adjust the string tension to customize limb feel. These small adjustments at the limb rocker point make the limbs feel shorter or longer, without any other alterations of the bow, limbs, or the tune of the bow.

Perfect Balance Weight System
The Perfect Balance Weight System (PBWS) features two 1 oz. weights that can be moved between the top and bottom limb pockets, allowing archers to customize the vertical balance of the Formula XD.

Pro Series Dovetail Block
A refined Pro Series Dovetail block features an all-new precision alloy insert. This helps eliminate potential galling under certain conditions, eliminating unwanted noises and vibrations being generated from the limb pocket during the draw cycle.

VertaTune Clicker Plate
The Formula XD comes standard with three options of VertaTune rest plates - high, middle and low – allowing for the customization of arrow rest position for optimized tuning and performance that matches the archer’s shooting style.

New optimized grip position
The Formula XD features an optimized riser geometry, shifted from previous generation Hoyt Formula recurves to achieve better tuning by decreasing unwanted vertical nock travel. This centralized grip position promotes more consistent engagement from the archer and helps achieve a linear shot response.

New colour options, perfect for any podium.
Formula XD is available in six Cerakote colours including: Frost White, Slate, Liquid Blue, Pink Champagne, Championship Red and Black Ink.
