Features

  • 8000 ENGINE: 160‑class HP makes this 794cc 2-stroke the most powerful 800 engine in the industry. It features a lightweight, quick‑revving crankshaft, twin spark plugs per cylinder and weight-saving engine reverse technology. The engine knock sensor provides octane recognition, giving you more fuel options.
  • 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 RACE FRONT SUSPENSION WITH FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 SHOCKS: The Arctic Race front suspension's geometry was developed thrrough racing. Our unique wide A-arm spacing complements the chassis design, which allows us to maintain a tighter suspension. And the new FOX QS3 shock lets you adjust your shocks to suit the riding conditions without removing your gloves. Set the clicker to 1 for a smooth, comfortable ride like the LXR. Click it up a notch to setting 2, and you'll straighten out the corners like a Sno Pro. Or click up to 3 to go head to head with an RR. These shocks features a premium coil-over design with a forged aluminum reservoir.
  • SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH ARCTIC CAT IFP FRONT AND FOX ZERO QS3 REAR SHOCKS: 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 you skis firmly planted over bumps, and during aggressive corning and acceleration. The Arctic Cat IFP front gas shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, 0.5" shaft, aluminum internal floating piston, and high-quality seals and ice scrapers. FOX ZERO QS3 rear tracks feature 3-position dial compression adjustability for quick and easy tuning for different riding styles and conditions. They are rebound adjustable and feature Kashima coating for the smoothest, most supple action.
  • DELUXE DIGITAL GAUGE: The information you need while riding, beautifully packaged. That’s the best way to describe this dual LCD gauge. There’s an odometer, trip meter, speedometer, engine hour, clock, fuel level indicator, battery voltage, coolant temperature, reverse and warning lights.
  • 12V OUTLET: Need to change your phone or another electrical device? We've got you covered. Just plug in and power up while you ride.
  • ELECTRIC START: This is just the thing for consistent, reliable starting. A simple turn of the key is all you need to get up and running.
  • HAND & THUMB WARMERS: Say goodbye to cold hands. Our hand and thumb warmers provide plenty of warmth and comfor on long rides.
  • 137-IN. BACKCOUNTRY X TRACK WITH 1.75-IN. LUGS: The 15" x 137" x 1.75" Backcountry X track was developed and proven in snocross competition and features a 3.0" pitch and provides an excellent blend of traction in loose snow while delivering great flotation and trail-riding traction.
  • ADJUSTABLE MOUNTAIN HANDLEBAR: Our easily adjustable handlebar allows you to set the perfect position for riding comfort. For the ultimate handling and control, a handy grab strap is included to help you shift your weight or hold your line.
  • GOGGLE HOLDER: Warm, dry goggles are as near as your goggle holder. The heat from the engine dries your goggles as you ride. Also works for masks and gloves.
  • PUSH-BUTTON ENGINE REVERSE: With just a push of a button, you can reverse the direction of the engine smoothly, quickly and easily. What's more, this technology also reduces the machine's weight.
  • PROCROSS - 6 SKIS: This trail ski’s 6" width delivers excellent handling on hardpack snow and good flotation in loose snow. A stiff, deep keel provides positive cornering in all conditions.
  • REAR RACK: Made of strong, lightweight aluminum, our rear rack gives you the room you need for that extra bag.
  • REAR TUNNEL BAG: The perfect mid-capactity storage bag for your mid-capacity items. Secures with easy-to-use quick-fasten straps.
  • FRONT PRO BUMPER: This aluminum bumper offers excellent protection, while the extended bottom plate acts as a front skid plate. Plus, it has a durable powder-coat finish to take on the rough stuff.
  • 5.5" RACE-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD: With its sporty look and enough protection for the track, this windshield’s low profile allows you to see everything as you lead the pack.
