Barnett Hyper XP 405 – New for 2022

The Hyper XP 405 is built around the narrow diameter HyperFlite shaft. Barnett is the first crossbow company to improve “ammo” in the crossbow category by advancing narrow bore arrow technology into the crossbow platform. HyperFlite narrow diameter arrows offer numerous advantages. Deeper penetration, less wind drift, increased durability and designed for maximum kinetic energy.

The Hyper XP 405 features a narrow 10-inch axle-to-axle profile when cocked, making it super maneuverable in tight spaces. Short custom composite laminated limbs provide plenty of power without added weight up front for a more stable shooting platform. The parallel blade configuration, combined with a track-mounted string damper, significantly reduces recoil and noise during firing while improving accuracy.

As its name implies, the Hyper XP 405 is based on Barnett’s HyperFlite narrow bore shaft technology. Pairing the Hyper XP 405 with 22-inch, .204-diameter HyperFlite arrows provides a deadly precise combination of blistering speed, maximum kinetic energy, and deeper penetration. 21% increased arrow FOC and 61% higher ballistic coefficient reduces wind drift and improves downrange accuracy.

As a result, the Hyper XP 405 sends small diameter HyperFlite™ arrows down with incredible speed – up to 405 feet per second and delivers 138 foot pounds. of kinetic energy! The Hyper Nock increases string engagement with the nock by 30%, resulting in greater accuracy, less string wear and no dry fires. Arrows feature a +/- 0.001 inch straightness tolerance for supreme accuracy and consistency.

The Hyper XP 405 also features a metal injection molded trigger and TriggerTech™ frictionless release technology ($200 value). This provides a crisp, reliable 3-pound pull for consistent shots and improved accuracy. An Anti-Dry Fire (ADF) system and a nock sensor ensure that the crossbow cannot fire unless the arrow is properly loaded. Finger safety reminders above the generous thru-grip keep fingers out of the path of the string, and an adjustable buttstock allows for perfect length-of-pull adjustment so the XP 405 can fit youth, women, and men.

The 4-5x32mm red/green illuminated viewfinder offers precise target acquisition in a wide range of ambient light conditions, from twilight to noon. A premium multi-position quiver completes the package for the ultimate shooting experience. Last but not least, the Hyper XP 405 features a simple three-bolt assembly, one bolt to attach the riser to the rail, and two screws to attach the foot peg.

The Hyper XP 405 is a value that only Barnett can offer. In a world of extremes, they have found balance. The weight distribution and narrow profile of the Hyper XP 405 make this crossbow feel more like shooting a gun than a bow. Which is what most shooters are looking for. A crossbow platform that transfers your shooting skills from one form to another without having to make many adjustments or compromises. Transfer the skills you’ve developed shooting long guns to archery seamlessly with the Hyper XP 405.
