In 1992 Matt McPherson introduced the revolutionary concept of single-cam technology. His innovation changed archery forever! How? Timing and synchronization issues became history. As a result, accuracy improved, and recoil and noise nearly vanished. – The Hēlim cam culminates 20 years of single-cam advancements.
The Hēlim™ integrates the Grid Lock pattern in an advanced geometric design called Geo Grid Lock™. This technological breakthrough creates an ultra-rigid lightweight riser, making the Hēlim one of the industry’s lightest hunting bows.
Mathews’ proprietary SE5 Composite SlimLimb™ Technology raises performance and efficiencies to unprecedented levels and are nearly 20% lighter than tradition V-Lock™ Limb Systems.
In 1996 Mathews pioneered parallel-limb technology — now the industry standard in bow design. Parallel limbs travel in a vertical motion to cancel vibration and create a smoother, quieter bow.
Spherelock is our cutting-edge positive-locking limb cup system. Its trim, lightweight and pivots to ensure constant and positive downward limb pressure.

The Reverse Assist™ Roller Guard reduces friction for a smoother draw cycle by positioning cables in a reverse manner; in front rather than behind the roller guard. Traditional roller guards position cables on the back side of the roller guard and cause the cables to wrap tighter as the bow is drawn back and therefore places more pressure on the cables. The Reverse Assist™ Roller Guard allows the cable to roll with less tension in a fully contained roller guard and ultimately makes the bow smoother since there is less tension on the cable.

New for 2011, the Harmonic Stabilizer evolves! The Harmonic Stabilizer Lite will give optimum performance and reduce nearly 75% residual vibration and is nearly 70% lighter than the original Harmonic Stabilizer!
While they’ve become the visual identifier of a Mathews bow, Harmonic Dampers are weights that float in an elastomer wheel to absorb recoil vibration in the riser. The reduction in recoil vibration is so significant in this Mathews technology that is has been licensed for use in other industries.
Without String Suppressors bow strings would whiplash back and forth between the cam and idler wheel upon release. String Suppressors deaden that vibration making for a much quieter and smoother shot.
The Dead End String Stop Lite™ by Mathews drastically reduces vibration and virtually eliminates post-release noise.
Three Monkey Tails™ come standard on the NEW 2012 Hēlim. This equates to a minimal speed loss of 1-2 fps total with virtually all string and cable sound and vibration eliminated. Monkey Tails are available in a variety of colors. Customize your bow and view different color options installed with the Bow Visualizer
String Grubs aid in reducing string vibration in order to gain more speed.
The term “let-off” basically refers to the percentage of weight that is subtracted from the bows advertised draw weight. In other words, a bow set at 70lbs, with 80% let-off, will only require that the shooter hold back 14lbs of weight when the bow is at full draw.
