Features

  • NEW ASCENDER PLATFORM WITH NEXT-GEN MOUNTAIN BODY PANELS: The Ascender platform brings a whole new way to attack the mountain. Running boards are 1 in. narrower than previous designs and the overall profile is 10% narrower for improved side-hill performance, improved venting and ease of laying the sled over in deep snow. The revised bellypan shape allows the rider’s feet to move 2 in. further forward for even greater ergonomic options for riding. The drive shaft dropped 1.125 in. allows for a 9.7º lowered approach angle providing more maneuverability and the ability to get up and stay up on the snow. Improved fit and finish with easy on / off one-piece body panels allow easy access to the engine compartment and brings a distinctive Arctic Cat styling.
  • 1.125 IN. DROPPED DRIVESHAFT: Like the 2017 Mountain Cat, this Early Release 2019 M 8000 Sno Pro is fitted with the 1.125 in. dropped driveshaft. The increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3 in. allows 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, sidehilling and boondocking.
  • 8000 C-TEC2 ENGINE WITH DSI: Introducing the most efficient and responsive 8000 engine from Arctic Cat. Fresh from our plant in 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.
  • ARCTIC DRIVE SYSTEM WITH TEAM RAPID RESPONSE II DRIVE AND TEAM RAPID REACTION BOSS DRIVEN CLUTCHES: The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The new TEAM Rapid Response II drive clutch features an auto-adjusting belt tension design that delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5% lower effective starting ratio while maintaining the top ratio for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed.
  • ARCTIC RACE FRONT SUSPENSION: The Arctic Race front suspension’s geometry was developed through racing. Our unique wide A-arm spacing complements the chassis design, which allows us to maintain a tighter suspension.
  • SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION: The SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension brings race-day technology to everyday riding. 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.
  • DELUXE DIGITAL GAUGE: This dual configurable LCD screen gauge allows to you check all the vital information about your snowmobile and more. 14 different readings to be exact. There’s an odometer, speedometer, max RPM, 2 trip meters, engine hours, low oil light, coolant temperature, exhaust temperature, intake air temperature, battery voltage, fuel level, clock, reverse indicator, hand warmer and thumb warmer.
  • 12V OUTLET: Need to charge your phone or another electrical device? We’ve got you covered. Just plug in and power up while you ride.
  • VERTICAL STEERING POST WITH 4.5 IN. RISER AND MOUNTAIN HANDLEBAR: Want to counter-steer on steep hills? This 4.5 in. vertical post provides a more natural handlebar turning arc when you’re riding standing up.
  • HAND & THUMB WARMERS: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfort on long rides.
  • 153 IN. & 162 IN. POWER CLAW TRACK WITH 3 IN. LUGS: This lightweight, single-ply track with a 3 in. pitch sets the standard for deep snow performance. Stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won’t fold over. The new industry-leading 3 in. lug grips the powder like no other. Available in 153 in. and 162 in. lengths.
  • FRONT MOUNT HEAT EXCHANGER: All M Series models incorporate the lightweight, single, front-mounted heat exchanger. The system is nearly 4 lb. lighter than a full-length heat exchanger and results in the least amount of snow and slush retention during riding, helping the M Series maintain their real-world weight savings advantage. All M Series snowmobiles also come standard with ice-scratchers.
  • ICE SCRATCHERS: As part of the heat exchange system, ice scratchers can save the day when there’s minimal snow but plenty of ice. In that kind of riding condition, lowering the ice scrapers kicks up ice to help prevent your engine from overheating.
  • MOUNTAIN STRAP: Want to shift your weight? This puts the extra leverage you need right in your hands.
  • PROCLIMB - 7 SKIS: The ProClimb-7 mountain ski is 7 in. at the tip, tapering to 6.5 in. at the center. The wider skis enhance your carving abilities and prevent unintended downhill braking. A wider ski damper featuring a longer axle and bolt increases lateral adjustability.
