• 2000 ENGINE: The value‑focused 565cc, 2‑stroke, fan‑cooled carbureted engine is powerful, durable and efficient. Push‑button engine reverse is a favorite in the utility segment. This engine is revered around the world for its simplicity and dependability.
  • ACT DIAMOND DIRECT DRIVE WITH ARCTIC CAT CLUTCHES: The ride-proven ACT™ Diamond Direct Drive™ planetary gearcase produces efficient transfer of power from engine to track, delivering a smooth ride. The Arctic Cat® clutch system engages at lower RPMs without sacrificing top speed.

Our U-shaped slot fits over a fixed shaft to allow a crucial half-inch of sliding movement. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the free-acting front arm follows the terrain, keeping your skis firmly planted over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration. Arctic Cat hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile, for an even more comfortable ride.
