Allows the track to bend and conform to the snow–whether you’re on a side hill or flat surface, or straight up in powder.
While other machines can accumulate snow equal to their rear suspension weight, the single-beam’s simple design virtually eliminates snow accumulation that would otherwise weigh you down.
Designed specifically for the Alpha One, this track features centered windows to align with the beam. And aggressive 3.0″ paddles with a 3.5″ pitch provide a fantastic snow-gripping power with the flexibility to maneuver almost effortlessly.
Attack the mountain with the legendary, lightweight Ascender™ Platform. An optimally positioned driveshaft increases clearance for the 3-inch lug track while also enabling the use of 8-tooth drive sprockets. The results? A flat track-to-snow approach angle for maximum floatability, quickly climbing on top of snow while accelerating and improved overall handling. Superior side-hilling performance is achieved through running boards 1-inch narrower than other designs in addition to optimal shaping of the footrest, tunnel support and bellypan allowing the rider’s feet to move forward on the tunnel edge roll for maximum ergonomic options. The Ascender Mountain bodywork is 3 inches narrower than the original ProClimb™ bodywork for easier side hilling and carving in deep snow. It’s also 1-lb. lighter yet stronger than the original ProClimb bodywork and provides easier access to under hood service components.
The 8000 — efficient, responsive and fresh out of St. Cloud, Minnesota. This 2-stroke engine features noticeably faster throttle response and acceleration compared with our previous 8000, plus up to 30% reduction in oil consumption below 7000 rpm, 36% increase in low-end torque and 18% increase in midrange torque. Delivering a rare combination of increased power, reduced emissions and ultra-low oil consumption, the overall crispness sets new standards for performance and rideability in the 160-HP class.
The 1.125-inch dropped driveshaft features an increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3 inches allowing us to use 8-tooth drive sprockets on this model, giving you a flatter approach angle with more floatability and maneuverability. In addition, you’ll also notice a huge difference in your sled handling. This update delivers a more efficient power transfer to the snow, letting you enjoy more horsepower when climbing, carving, side hilling and boondocking.
The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The design incorporates a large TEAM® driven clutch and TEAM drive clutch. By eliminating belt skid, these clutches reduce temperature and transfer more power to the track. In addition to their incredible strength, these clutches are known for their easy and precise tuning.
The all-new 2019 ProClimb – 7 G2 Skis feature a new shape that delivers improved flotation with a slightly less aggressive keel shape for easier steering and more consistent performance in varying snow conditions. Molded-in foot traction on the top of the skis adds boot traction and usability for experienced riders. The new G2 skis work in concert with the AMS spindles to deliver a new level of deep-snow performance and adjustability, incorporating a tapered width, from 7 inches at the tip to 6.5 inches in the middle, which works with a unique rubber dampener to keep the ski tips up and floating on top of the snow while preventing diving or knifing. A wide ski saddle accommodates a full 2 inches of lateral ski stance adjustability.
