Features

  • THE REVOLUTIONARY ALPHA ONE SINGLE-BEAM REAR SUSPENSION: A giant leap forward in backcountry performance. Arctic Cat's revolutionary new single-beam rear suspension system flexes with the terrain and performs incredibly in deep powder. It's also super lightweight, making it easier to handle. A hollowed box support system with magnesium attachment points resulting in minimal parts and a lighter machine. A single pivot point allows the track to bend and conform to the snow–whether you’re on a side hill or flat surface, or straight up in powder. While other machines can accumulate snow equal to their rear suspension weight, the single-beam’s simple design virtually eliminates snow accumulation that would otherwise weigh you down.
  • NEXT-GEN POWER CLAW TRACK: Designed specifically for the Alpha One, this track features centered windows to align with the beam. And aggressive 3.0 in. paddles with a 3.5 in. pitch provide a fantastic snow-gripping power with the flexibility to maneuver almost effortlessly.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • ARCTIC MOUNTAIN FRONT SUSPENSION WITH FOX FLOAT 3 QS3 SHOCKS: Lightweight, forged-aluminum spindles have less surface area than the previous design, reducing drag and improving performance in deep snow. Also, dual-phase high strength alloy-steel A-arms are lighter than previous designs. FOX FLOAT 3 QS3 shock lets you adjust your shocks to suit the riding conditions without removing your gloves. Set the clicker to 1 for a softer ride. Click it up a notch to setting 2, and you’ll be able to take on any bump. Or click up to 3 for a stiffer ride to take on whatever the backcountry has to offer.
  • FLOAT-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH FOX FLOAT QS3 FRONT AND FOX FLOAT 3 QSL 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 QS3 front track shock and FOX FLOAT 3 QSL rear track shocks are engineered to perfection. The lightweight design and premium bump control improve resistance to bottoming out. The quick switch on each of these shocks allows you to choose from three specifically calibrated ride control settings allowing you to change up your ride in a matter of seconds.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • HAND & THUMB WARMERS: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfort on long rides.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT BRAKE DISC: For improved performance, we’ve made the rotor 12% larger, yet 60% lighter. That translates to more confidence behind the handlebars.
  • 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.
