The 2019 Ascent is at home on the course or in the field. With it’s 36” axle to axle and 6 ¾” brace height, the 2019 Ascent is stable and fast in any environment, with IBO speeds of 335fps. This platform is built for crushing the X ring on paper or foam. Built on Athen’s popular 2-track cam system and solid limbs, this bow is smooth and quiet with a 80% let off sure to please any target shooter. New color options and dual sight mounts this year round out the already popular Ascent platform. Strings: All 2019 Athens Archery bows come equipped with GAS Premium High Octane Strings. All GAS bowstrings and cables are pre-stretched with the GAS proprietary Total Tensioning System (TTS) to ensure zero string creep, peep rotation and serving separation. This process is unlike many bowstring manufacturers, who simply stretch their strings and cables at a set weight. By tensioning their strings throughout the entire building process, GAS create superior stability and zero movement in the final product.  GAS High Octane Strings developed for Athens Archery will come standard with BCY 452X string material.

  1. David Walker

    Great indoor/3D bow. I have shot this bow in field, 3D and indoor. Shot after shot this bow consistently has performed on the tournament trail.

    Oh, don’t be afraid to carry it to the woods. It’s Engineered to kill as well.

  2. Jamie Dixson

    Great bow for target and hunting. I primarily use mine as a target bow. Smooth draw and a rock solid back-wall. I highly reccomend this bow and the customer service and warranty are the best in the business. Top end bow at entry level price. You cant go wrong with Athens.

  3. jnjburton

    I have been shooting indoor and outdoor 3D and some spots with the Ascent for over a year now and I am still impressed with this bow every time I shoot it! Great pricing, great bows, and a great company! You just cant go wrong with Athens Archery!

  4. Manny Batcho

    I recieved my 2019 ascent yesterday, got it all dialed in and it is hammering. Amazing draw cycle and the let off will allow you to hold full draw forever. I selected my ascent with the 2.0 color pattern which isnt common for the style bow but it looks so sharp. Everything about the company from speaking to the owners being extremely helpful to the dealers they allow to carry their products is just professional and enjoyable. The bows are top of the line alot of thought and precision goes into every bow and you can tell.

  5. Richard Mabry

    I purchased the Ascent to shoot 3D archery with. The bow is impressive. It is a very consistent shooting bow. Especially at long yardages. I can focus on a spot, pull back on the smooth draw cycle. Then my pin is close to where it needs to be. I know when I release my arrow the Ascent is going to send the arrow to where my sight pin is. I have had the Ascent for 1 1/2 years and it still looks brand new with almost 2 full seasons of 3D shooting. I get complements on the 3D course of how well the bow looks and how well it shoots.

  6. troy_2k3

    I use my Ascent for indoor and 3D. The Ascent holds great on target.The draw is consistent and smooth all the way back to the rock solid back wall. the attention to detail and the fit and finish are excellent. It comes with quality GAS bowstrings. The grip is very repeatable and comfortable. Lifetime transferable warranty and great customer service along with the price make the Ascent a great bow. Great job Athens.

  7. Greg Moriates

    I use the ascent for field archery and 3D. The bow is balanced, no hand shock and a great shooter. You will not be disappointed. This bow is also ready for the woods. It was my hunting rig but now my backup hunting bow as I have the Ridge setup for hunting.

  8. Steve Jones

    I have been shooting the Ascent since it first came out and have loved it from day one. It has all of the same high-quality characteristics all Athens bows I have owned have: no shock, solid back wall, smooth draw, great grip.

    For me the most important and impressive thing about the Ascent is how accurate it is. It holds very steady. I love how much higher my scores are since I started shooting the Ascent. It’s my favorite bow out of any I have ever shot!

  9. Ryan Russell

    The Athen’s Ascent is hands down one of the best bows that had ever been produced by Athens Archery. I have been shooting an Athens since 2009 and have had multiple models and this bow holds and shoots better than any of the others i have owned. And to be backed by the best customer service in the industry. I own two Ascents one for hunting and one for target. Going to order a 3rd for indoor.
