The True 50/50 Crossover

Both Riot and Riot X deliver ruthless crossover versatility, with available ARS™ II front suspension and CROSS-ACTION rear suspension. For deeper and steeper riding, Riot X is built to handle mountain riding.


  • CROSS-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION: CROSS-ACTION blends the increased weight transfer of an uncoupled rear arm with the optimal cornering and bump absorption.
  • FOX® ZERO QS3 SHOCKS: Easy to adjust, and built for any terrain and riding style. Our premium FOX ZERO QS3 shocks are available in 1.5- or 2.0-inch diameters.
  • ARS II™ FRONT SUSPENSION: The new arctic Race Suspension (ARS II) puts everything we learned about conquering terrain into you Riot.
  • G2 PROCLIMB™ 7 MOUNTAIN SKI: This lightweight ski is contoured for easier steering, and integrates with the AMS spindles for better deep-snow performance.
  • ADJUSTABLE SKI STANCE: Easily adjust your ski stance —from 42- to 43 inches on Riot and from 39.5- to 41.5 inches on Riot X — for maximum adaptability.
  • REINFORCED RUNNING BOARDS: Big air means big impact, which is why Riot's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for added rigidity.
  • REAR RACK: Haul more gear for an all-day ride with this standard rear rack.
