Features

Capabilities

  • CROSS-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION: CROSS-ACTION Rear Suspension blends the increased weight transfer of an uncoupled suspension with the optimal cornering and bump absorption of Arctic Cat’s Torque-Sensing Link™ used on our trail models. The CROSS-ACTION skidframe creates a playful ride quality, with more weight transfer during acceleration, great performance in deep snow, and outstanding comfort and traction over big bumps in all snow conditions. Arctic Cat’s Torque-Sensing Link allows a lower and more consistent track tension, plus you get an adjustable spring preload and a 3-wheel rear axle assembly. The CROSS-ACTION suspension offers 13.5 inches of travel and comes in a 146-inch length with ice-scratchers.
  • ARS™ II FRONT SUSPENSION: The Arctic Race Suspension (ARS II) puts everything we learned about conquering tough terrain onto your Riot. The next generation of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hardpack trails.
  • G2 PROCLIMB™ 7 MOUNTAIN SKI: This lightweight ski is contoured for easier steering, and integrates with the AMS spindles for better deep-snow performance.
  • ADJUSTABLE SKI STANCE: Easily adjust your ski stance —from 41.5- to 43.5 inches for maximum adaptability.
  • REINFORCED RUNNING BOARDS: Big air means big impact, which is why Riot's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for added rigidity.
  • REAR RACK: Haul more gear for an all-day ride.
