2015 Performance Overview

Why do Arctic riders RIDE MORE™? Some say riding lets us be heroes of our own adventures. From the moment we fire up our engines and take to the trails, we become the thrill‑seekers we were born to be. With great power and great cornering ability comes great responsibility. You see, when we’re not hammering the throttle on the racetrack, we’re hammering it in the workshop. Figuring out ways to improve on 50 years of refinement - one breakthrough at a time. That’s how we move the speedometer forward. Always have.






No matter how you ride, where you ride or why you ride, there's a 2015 Arctic Cat® built for the way you ride. You've come to the right place to find out what makes Arctic Cat beat to a different drum.

Slide-Action Rear Suspension™

Slide-Action maintains a free-acting front arm while coupling under torque over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the front arm follows the bumps, keeping your skis firmly planted as your 129-in. track propels you down the trail.

Arctic Race Front Suspension

Tall, lightweight ski spindles and widely spaced A-arms provide great torsion rigidity and strength. Angling the shock load back toward the rider's mass, results in optimal caster/camber to improve comfort and cornering. Arctic Cat® IFP shocks and a sway bar provide excellent control and handling.

5000 C-TEC4™ Engine

The 1056cc 4-stroke has been in the lineup long enough to achieve perfection. The price is low. The efficiency is high. And with 125-class dutiful horsepower, this power plant is in good company among its prestigious brethren.

ProCross Chassis

This chassis excels at bringing weight-saving technology to the performance-obsessed rider. The ProCross™ features a tapered two-piece tunnel design. Narrow at the top, wider at the bottom. A forged steering housing ties together many of the load-bearing chassis components.

Deluxe Digital/Analog Gauge

The deluxe gauge lets you 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.

Electric Start

With a simple turn of the key, the new and improved electric start is reliable and effective. Not to mention the easiest way to ignite the fun.

Push-Button Engine Reverse

The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. This feature reverses the direction of the engine rotation. In addition to being smooth it's also a weight savings.

Rear Storage Bag

The mid-capacity rear storage bag holds anything from gloves to water bottles. Secure, easy-to-use quick-fasten straps and semi-rigid construction add plenty of needed strength.

Mid-Height Windshield

Tuck in for the long haul. You can't beat this sturdy windshield for excellent protection from the elements.

1-in. Ripsaw II Track

A unique lug design on the Ripsaw™ II track combines the best features of Ripsaw, Cobra™ and Predator for excellent performance. It offers less side bite through the corners than the original Ripsaw, with a 1-in. lug height for optimal top speed.


An Arctic Cat® is born. There's no question where its genes originated. It's time to learn more about the chassis, suspensions, drive systems and power plants that make an Arctic Cat look, sound and ride like only an Arctic Cat can.
