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: The Arctic Drive System features CVT drive and driven clutches for a combination of smooth shifting, optimal performance, maximum durability; great serviceability; and reduced weight. The new drive clutch features a roller bearing on the shaft that enables an auto-adjusting belt tension design and delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5 percent lower effective starting ratio (while maintaining the top ratio) for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed, with more evenly distributed force for lower belt pressure. It’s a design that’s unique to Arctic Cat.
  • 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. Hydraulic twin tube shocks provide the dampening to smooth out the whoops and bumps.
  • 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. This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration. Arctic Cat® hydraulic twin tube shocks smooth out the chatter, mile after mile, for an even more comfortable ride.
  • POWER SPORT GAUGE: All the information. All at your fingertips. There’s an odometer, trip meter, speedometer, engine hour, clock, fuel level indicator, reverse and warning lights, keeping you in tune with your machine.
  • 12V OUTLET: Running low on power? Use the 12v plug-in to charge your phone or other electrical devices while you ride.
  • PUSH BUTTON START: This is just the thing for consistent, reliable starting. A simple push of a button is all you need to get up and running.
  • STEALTH LIGHTWEIGHT MASTER CYLINDER BRAKE SYSTEM: New for 2019, the Stealth lightweight master cylinder brake system features a new lever design for increased braking power with less required force compared to the previous design.
  • 129 IN. RIPSAW & 137 IN. RIPSAW II TRACK WITH 1.25 IN. LUGS: Just say the name Ripsaw™ and one of the best trail tracks out there comes to mind. The 15 in. wide footprint with 1.25 in. lugs provide excellent durability and traction on groomed or hard-pack snow. Standard Ripsaw is available in 129 in. or the Ripsaw II is available in 137 in.
  • ADJUSTABLE HANDLEBAR WITH 5.5 IN. RISER: Our easily adjustable handlebar allows you to set the perfect position for riding comfort.
  • PUSH-BUTTON REVERSE: Just a push of a button allows you to go from forward to reverse and back again smoothly, quickly and easily.
  • PROCROSS - 6 SKIS: This trail ski’s 6 in. width delivers excellent handling on hardpack snow and good flotation in loose snow. A stiff, deep keel provides positive cornering in all conditions.
  • 11 IN. MID-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD: The perfect mix of protection and comfort, keeping any spray from slowing you down when the going gets really fast.
