- ACT DIAMOND DIRECT DRIVE WITH ARCTIC CAT CLUTCHES
The ride-proven ACT™ Diamond Direct Drive™ planetary gearcase produces efficient transfer of power from engine to track, delivering a smooth ride. The Arctic Cat® clutch system engages at lower RPMs without sacrificing top speed.
- AWS VII FRONT SUSPENSION WITH HYDRAULIC TWIN TUBE SHOCKS
Arctic Cat’s legendary AWS™ VII front suspension utilizes strong, durable A-arms, providing great handling and cornering. Hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile, for an even more comfortable ride.
- SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH ARCTIC CAT TWIN TUBE SHOCKS
The SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension™ brings race-day technology to everyday riding. Our U-shaped slot fits over a fixed shaft to allow a crucial half-inch of sliding movement. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the free-acting front arm follows the terrain, keeping your skis firmly planted over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration. Arctic Cat hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile for an even more comfortable ride.
Choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. There’s also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.
Passengers have feet, too. These footrests not only provide comfort, they also offer stability and support on bumpy terrain.
When you’re riding solo and need room for gear, the passenger seat can be easily removed by flipping two levers.
This hitch features a tow ring configuration that securely hooks to anything from a loaded sled to a fish house without slipping.
- 151-IN. RIPSAW TRACK WITH 1.25-IN. LUGS
The 151-in. Ripsaw track features aggressive angled-lug profiles for outstanding forward and lateral traction on groomed trails. 1.25” lugs provide excellent handling, acceleration and braking on hard-packed surfaces.
This is just the thing for consistent, reliable starting. A simple turn of the key is all you need to get up and running.
- PUSH-BUTTON ENGINE REVERSE
With just a push of a button, you can reverse the direction of the engine smoothly, quickly and easily. What’s more, this technology also reduces the machine’s weight.
- 13″ MID-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD
The perfect mix of protection and comfort, keeping any spray from slowing you down when the going gets really fast.
