Build a V-Bar combining light mass weight and rigidness. That was the goal we set for ourselves in 2010. SHIBUYA had produced lightweight V-Bars previously. However, due to issues with strength of materials, the models in our lineup at the time were thick and supplied with a stainless steel V-Bar Bolt.
The mass weight Olympic archers are able to use for their setup is limited. It is largely dictated by muscle strength, so archers of a smaller stature tend to prefer light weight bows. By reducing the mass weight of the V-Bar, the archer is able to fine tune their stabilizer weight more freely, and even athletes requiring a light weight bow are able to tune their bow to their desired balance.
SHIBUYA had previously offered a light weight aluminum V-Bar bolt, but there were incidents of failure due to material strength. CARUNO uses a high-strength alloy, enabling it to offer an extremely light V-Bar Bolt while providing high strength. By carving all unnecessary material off the V-Bar body, we were able to reduce the total weight of the CARUNO V-Bar to 48 grams, half of what popular V-Bars on the market at the time weighed.
