Sole Intent reviews

Launched in 2018, the Sole Intent was designed to complement the other products in the Bear Legend Series with a compact, lightweight bow that doesn’t sacrifice speed or shootability. For archers who are physically smaller, or who simply want a more compact bow, the Sole Intent is smooth, quiet and a great performer.


The Bear Sole Intent is a compound bow with a smaller ATA, lower peak draw weight, and shorter draw length range than most bows designed for serious archers. But it packs a lot of performance and features into a compact package.

It has a single cam, for easy adjustability and lower maintenance when compared with hybrid cam bows, and delivers an exceptionally smooth draw cycle. It has Bear’s top of the line Max Pre-Load Quad Limbs, and new ShockWaves limb dampeners that reduce noise and vibration.

The BearTrap pocket system has a zero-tolerance boot to reduce torque. It has an extremely smooth draw cycle and a rock-solid wall, and it also has Bear’s Nanogrip, a slim design with a narrow grip that improves accuracy. It is available in Badlands Approach camo finish.


  • Compact and lightweight
  • Designed for archers who are smaller in size
  • High speed and performance
  • Extremely smooth and quiet
  • Lower maintenance
  • Comfortable grip


  • As we often see in Bear bows, only one finish option
  • 295fps is a bit slow, but performs as well or better than other bows at this draw weight and length


The Bear Sole Intent is a lightweight, compact bow with full-size power. While the 295fps may seem slow on paper, it’s worth remembering that most bows are tested at a 30-inch draw length and 70 pounds, so the Sole Intent is faster than it seems. The single cam on this bow doesn’t inhibit performance, rather it makes setup, adjustment, and maintenance faster and easier than on a hybrid. For hunters looking for a 60 pound bow with a 27 inch draw, the Sole Intent is a better choice with more power than a bigger bow adjusted downwards to those specs. It’s a great choice for those who want to travel light.
