To understand the principles behind the design of BipodeXt™ it helps to visualize a rifle as a lever and a bipod as the fulcrum on which the lever rests. While BipodeXt™ is not utilized to move heavy objects, the principle of the lever/fulcrum axiom is still in effect. By using this principle of thought, we can state that the effect of force applied to one end of the lever directly translates to the effect of that force at the opposing end. As for BipodeXt™, the further out the bipod is placed the effect of movement at the toe of the rifle is drastically reduced at the muzzle.
To understand the principles behind the design of the F.A.S.T. Chassis it helps to visualize a rifle as a lever and a bipod as the fulcrum on which the lever rests.
BipodeXt uses the Lever/Fulcrum axiom but, to say it colloquially, it uses it the other way around. BipodeXt takes the Moment of Force (the shooter’s unintended movements) at the short end of the proverbial Lever and moves the Fulcrum further into the long end of the Lever (read: closer to the muzzle). The result is that the shooter’s unintended movements down along the long end of the Lever are reduced. For our purposes, the “long end of the Lever” is that imaginary line going through the center of the barrel to the intended target.

Picatinny (1013 MIL-STD) or ARCA Swiss rail, your choice. Our Front Plug, the element to which the bipod is attached, can take both.

“A fantastic piece of kit that we are all sold on and pretty much blown away [by]. It [BipodeXt] solves many problems of stability, from moving the bipod so far forward, the system becomes massively stable. ALL twitching is removed and follow on shots and target acquisition is pretty much instantaneous.”

“The BipodeXT dramatically increases the felt stability of the firing platform. It was awesome to see how steady the crosshairs had become once again, despite my twitching and neuropathy. I am shooting again, it was the BipodeXT that got me back on my feet after such a rough time.”
