Features

  • 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 800, 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 DRIVE AND TEAM RAPID RESPONSE BOSS DRIVEN CLUTCHES: 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.
  • ARCTIC MOUNTAIN FRONT SUSPENSION WITH FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL SHOCKS: The Arctic Mountain front suspension packs the essentials. The ProClimb-7 mounatin ski is 7" at the tip, tapering to 6.5" at the center to enhance your carving. Single-post, angled-out spindles help you shed some sled weight while maximizing quality and strength. The premium FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL shocks offer lightweight design, simplified adjustment and premium bump control features of the FLOAT 3, but with improved resistance to bottoming and reduced cornering "roll" thanks to the added EVOL air chamber.
  • 1.125 IN. DROPPED DRIVESHAFT: The Mountain Cat’s increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3" 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 mountain of difference in your sled handling. This update in the Mountain Cat delivers a more efficient power transfer to the snow, letting you enjoy more horsepower when climbing, carving, sidehilling and boondocking. The mountains are tough. Now you’re equipped to get tough right back.
  • 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.
  • FLOAT-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL FRONT AND FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL R REAR SHOCKS: The FLOAT-ACTION Rear Suspension features revised rails that shed 1.25 pounds, giving optimal suspension travel and a better ride quality in all conditions. The FLOAT-ACTION suspension incorporates mountain-specific geometry, delivering consistent track tension. The FOX FLOAT 3 EVOL R rear track shocks, are engineered as a lightweight design, with the simplified adjustment premium bump control features of the FLOAT 3 shocks, but with the improved resistance to bottoming and reduced cornering "roll" that comes with the added EVOL air chamber.
  • HAND & THUMB WARMERS: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfort on long rides.
  • DELUXE DIGITAL ANALOG GAUGE: The deluxe gauge lets you choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. There’s also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights. Like we said, it’s deluxe.
  • FRONT MOUNT HEAT EXCHANGER: All M Series models incorporate the lightweight, single, front-mounted heat exchanger. The system is nearly 4 lbs. 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.
  • 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.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT BRAKE DISC: For improved performance, we've made the rotor 12% larger, yet 60% lighter. That translates to more confidence for rugged backcountry riding
  • VERTICAL STEERING POST, 4.5 IN. RISER WITH ADJUSTABLE MOUNTAIN HANDLEBAR: Want to counter-steer on steep hills? This 4.5" vertical post provides a more natural handlebar turning arc when you’re riding standing up.
  • PROCLIMB - 7 SKIS: The new ProClimb-7 mountain ski is 7" at the tip, tapering to 6.5" 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.
  • MOUNTAIN STRAP: Want to shift your weight? This puts the extra leverage you need right in your hands.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT MOUNTAIN SEAT: In the backcountry, the less weight the better. So we’ve designed this seat to be low and short. That also makes it easier to hop from one side of your sled to the other when carving through challenging terrain.
  • 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 inches further forward for even greater ergonomic options for riding. The drive shaft dropped 1.125 inches 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 distinctiveArctic Cat styling.
