JanBows Archery > Hybrid > Khai
Khai means crowned. Khai is the king of the competition and sport hybrid bows
Those who want the most placid and accurate bow choose the Khai. It is possible, due to its more massive riser, to achieve even more placid shot. The Khai design is based on the current experience with Tabia and Jahi bows. Smooth reflex and deflex line of these bows visually expresses its mechanical and functional properties. Subtlety, smoothness and spontaneity. Both while drawing and release. Khai combines the qualities of reflex and long bows. It is fast, quiet and with no handshock. Khai is here and it is create for victory.
The centre of the bow consists of hard domestic and exotic woods as Shedua, Zebrano, Jatoba, Ipe, Wenge, Ash, Maple and Walnut interspaced with thin color fiberglass reinforcement. The wood is pre-cut to segments, carefully selected and glued again. This enables higher toughness, stability and absorption capability of the middle part. I consider the design of the middle part that consists of hard woods and relatively small amount of thin fiberglass to be an ideal solution from the point of esthetics, bow properties and safety.
The limbs are made of a core of bamboo and other lightweight wood laminations and, depending on the design, fiberglass or carbon laminate. Single carbon (SC) version has a unidirectional carbon on backing and a transparent or black fiberglass on the belly. Double cross carbon (DCX) has both laminates of 100% carbon. The basic version has both laminates from a transparent or black fiberglass laminate.
There is a veneer under the transparent fiberglass. It serves one main purpose to show and celebrate the natural beauty of the wood. The choice of the veneer and wood type is down to personal preferences of each and every archer.
Every Khai bow is varnished with 5 layers of matt 2 PUR varnish. The bow can be customized with brass inserts UNC 10-24 for a bow quiver mount. The grip can be dressed in leather on request.
Every Khai bow is supplied with 12(14) threads of Dynaflight 97 or 16(18) threads of Spectra 652 string and Angel Majesty centre serving.
