While barebow rules do not allow the long stabilizer rods used in Olympic archery, they do allow for a stabilizer weight below the grip. The only requirement is the bow with stabilizer fit through the 12.2 cm (4.75″) ring. This necessitates that the weights sit close to the riser.
To meet this requirement, Hoyt has developed integral weights molded to fit the Xceed riser.
The Riser Weight adds 32 oz of weight below the grip adding both balance and stability to the Xceed barebow.
