Building on previous design concepts, RAIDER bits incorporate design refinements that create a new, more balanced profile, with greater stability to overcome the ROP and durability challenges of drilling transition zones and abrasive formations.

Features / Benefits

Balanced Cutting Structure
Toughened cone and strengthened nose and shoulder result in an inherently balanced bit design.

Force3 Cutters
Superior proprietary cutter testing methods provide the best cutter for any challenge.

PowerCutterTM Cutting Structures
Provides extra exposure and cutter density on the critical areas of the bit.

Curved Nozzle Option
Custom designed curved nozzles eliminate bit balling and enhance hole bottom cleaning for faster ROP.

Steel Option
Steel body designs are inherently faster and more aggressive than matrix.
