It’s not how fast you ride, but rather how well you ride fast. Much of the thinking that goes into our sleds comes from the racetrack where professional riders encounter conditions no test lab can simulate. A prime example is the SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension™ designed to reduce track tension through the full range of compression, absorbing bumps and minimizing ski lift. That’s important when 160 horsepower is cut loose.
The ProCross chassis is made up of an inner- and outer-formed shell with boxed support structure to make up the two-piece tunnel, giving additional strength and weight savings. Put it all together and you get one amazing chassis.
How do you build a lighter, stronger A-arm? Start with a triangle. Then angle the shock load back toward the rider’s mass. This provides ample shock reaction. Maximum valve and spring control allow for better cornering and bump absorption at high speeds.
The front shocks are strategically aligned with the front spars to transfer the impact force to the upper spar assembly – the strongest point of the chassis. This almost eliminates body flex and provides a smooth, comfortable ride. The lighter one-piece forged aluminum spindle also improves turning radius.
The Slide-Action Rear Suspension 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 bump, keeping your skis firmly planted. It’s the only suspension featuring a U-shaped slot that fits over a fixed shaft to allow a crucial half-inch of sliding movement (Slide-Action). This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration.
The 9000 C-TEC4™ turbocharged 1056cc 4-stroke engine produces 177 HP – at any elevation and temperature-making it the most powerful production engine ever in a snowmobile.
The 8000, 794cc, liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine produces 160+ HP. It features a lightweight crankshaft, batteryless EFI, APV electronic exhaust valves, Exhaust Pipe Temperature Sensor™ and weight-saving engine-reverse technology.
The 1049cc 3-cyclinder offers a new caliber of excellence in 135-class hp. This CTEC4 (Clean Technology 4-stroke) brings you advanced intake, exhaust and oil and cooling systems. The state-of-the-art fuel management system reduces emissions and increases efficiency. A large front-mounted radiator with heat exchanger provides superb engine cooling especially while riding at lower speeds.
This is the all-new Arctic Cat designed C-TEC2™ engine. With 125-class HP, now you can have the most powerful and efficient 600 we’ve ever offered. Dual stage injection reduces the distance fuel has to travel. Fuel is injected directly into the boost port side of the cylinder. The result is increased performance, better fuel economy and cleaner emissions.
The naturally aspirated 1056cc 4-stroke engine produces 125-class HP. It’s clean, quiet and delivers excellent fuel economy in all riding conditions. ISC control eliminates engine braking and EFI optimizes performance in all altitudes and temps.
The 499cc, liquid-cooled twin is the ideal engine for a wide range of riders. This engine represents tried and true 2-stroke performance. Here you have the right combination of performance, reliability and value.
We’ve added deeper fins to our secondary clutch for improved cooling. We’re also using a high temp bearing material for less friction and extended durability. Cooler clutches equals better performance and belt life.
