Features

Capabilities

  • PLENTY OF POWER TO PLAY - 397cc, Liquid-Cooled, 2-Stroke EFI Engine with 65+HP: BLAST M features the industry’s first electronic fuel-injected, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 2-stroke engine. The 65+HP-class C-TEC2™, 397cc engine is lightweight and has plenty of snap for experienced enthusiasts while still welcoming newer riders. With an industry-first design that’s compact and lightweight (under 50 pounds), this EFI engine brings 65HP (397cc) performance to every ride. A 3-stage exhaust valve system takes this power to the next level, delivering improved throttle response and better overall engine performance. As a liquid-cooled engine, it thrives in low-snow conditions – and a counter balance shaft eliminates most engine vibration. The result: a lightweight-but-mighty power source that powers the ride like no other.
  • UNPRECEDENTED MANEUVERABILITY - ALPHA ONE Single-Beam Rear Suspension: ALPHA ONE is the only single-beam rear suspension in the industry, providing enhanced agility on the mountain. The lightweight, single-beam design provides nimble action allowing riders to maneuver the sled and carve tighter circles with less effort than conventional, dual-rail snowmobiles. Instead of using two rails like a slide rail suspension, the ALPHA ONE Single-Beam Rear Suspension’s single aluminum rail runs right down the center of the track. With minimal input, you get effortless deep snow cornering, carving, side-hilling and more. The suspension provides 14.75 inches of travel to prevent bottoming out.
  • SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY - Arctic Drive System: The Arctic Drive System has a CVTech Trailbloc drive clutch and CVTech Invance driven clutch to deliver power to the snow. It also provides more low-end power and throttle control, which is needed when navigating deep snow. Plus it has great durability to keep you riding.
  • PROVEN SUSPENSION - ARCTIC MOUNTAIN SUSPENSION: Featured on the full-sized mountain sleds, the Arctic Mountain Suspension™ (AMS) is lightweight, keeping the sled nimble in the varying snow conditions of the backcountry. The suspension provides optimal off-trail cornering and more predictable counter steering when side-hilling. AMS is paired with hydraulic twin tube shocks — both front and back — to provide ample bump absorption.
  • LIGHT AND NIMBLE - MID-SIZED CHASSIS: This sled was designed specifically to let riders of all kinds capture more thrills. The mid-sized chassis is extremely lightweight, making it agile and easy to handle no matter your skill level, with maneuverability experienced riders will appreciate, too. With its mid-sized seat, transferring weight while cornering is effortless, adding to the fun.
  • EASIER STEERING - G2 PROCLIMB SKIS: The lightweight G2 ProClimb™ 7-inch Mountain Ski is tapered to stay on top of the snow. The ski works in tandem with the AMS spindles for easier steering and better deep snow performance.
  • CAPABLE, EFFORTLESS HANDLING - BEST-IN-CLASS POWER-TO-WEIGHT RATIO: This snowmobile is easy to maneuver with plenty of power to rip through the deep snow. The 65+HP-class C-TEC2™, 397cc engine is paired with a lightweight chassis for a best-in-class power-to-weight ratio.
  • RELIABLE TRACTION - CHALLENGER 146-INCH TRACK: The Challenger 146-inch track with 2-inch lug offers the traction needed to conquer varying mountain snow conditions. Its benchmark lug design is versatile for all-around performance and features a saw-tooth lug for additional grip on hard, wind-blown and springtime snow.
  • GREAT VISIBILITY - 4-INCH RACE HEIGHT WINDSCREEN: Seeing is key with mountain riding. The BLAST M both feature a low-profile, 4-inch, race-height windscreen. It offers the visibility needed to weave through the trees or size up the next big jump while offering wind protection when you need it.
  • TURN AND GO - Turn-Key Electric Start: Simply sit down and take off. The BLAST M features a turn-key electric start, so there's no need to pull-start this mountain sled.
