An Aggressively Calibrated Trail Snowmobile with Firm Suspension

Dial up any trail on the map and tackle it with confidence. ZR Sno Pro’s aggressively calibrated Arctic Cat IFP ski shocks and rear shocks give you a firm, solid ride that hugs the trail.


  • LOWERED RIDE HEIGHT AND 1.0 IN. RIPSAW TRACK: With a lower ride height, the ZR Sno Pro is built for speed, letting you hug every turn, and race down every straightaway. Plus, it features a 1.0-inch Ripsaw Track to enhance speed, traction and handling. Its aggressive, angled lugs grip the trail, while the chopped design provides unmatched handling, acceleration and hard packed surfaces. The narrow lug base reduces rolling when you open it up. Built for long-term durability over miles and miles of rides, the Ripsaw Track makes the most of ZR Sno Pro's power and precision.
  • ARCTIC CAT IFP GAS SHOCKS: Arctic Cat IFP coil-over shocks are engineered with a hard-anodized 1.5-in. aluminum body; 0.5- in. shaft; aluminum internal floating piston; and high-quality seals and ice scrapers.
  • ARS II FRONT SUSPENSION: The next level of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm, and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a new roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hard pack trails.
  • 137 IN. SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION: Unlock the true potential of a coupled suspension with our unique SLIDE-ACTION design. The front arm fits into a U-shaped slot that allows 0.5 inches of sliding movement, so the front arm won’t collapse whenever the rear arm compresses. That unique design gives you the full benefit of coupling: controlled ski lift during acceleration and the complete use of the front arm at all times. SLIDE-ACTION suspension also allows a lower and more consistent track tension with its Torque-Sensing Link, plus three-position rear coupling block adjustability, adjustable spring preload and a durable 3-wheel rear axle assembly.
  • 8000 SERIES C-TEC2 ENGINE: New for 2020, the next generation 8000 Series C-TEC2 engine delivers a new level of clean Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine performance and technology. This new 794 cc C-TEC2 twin features include new cylinders, pistons, combustion chamber, flywheel and fuel rail; new fuel calibration strategy and Arctic Power Valve system with 3-stage control of the auxiliary exhaust ports via side valves; ECM-controlled electronic oil pump; batteryless EFI; Exhaust Pop Temperature Sensor (EPTS); knock sensor; engine reverse technology. This advanced new technology designed by Arctic Cat and built in St. Cloud, MN delivers ultra-clean, more responsive performance, enhanced power in the 165 hp class of engines, precision oil injection, precision oil injection and exceedingly robust and lightweight design.
  • 5.5 IN. RACE-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD: A lower-profile, race-ready windshield gives you a new level of visibility.
  • PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START: Get the convenience and ease of electric start with a handlebar-mounted button.
  • ADJUSTABLE 42"-43" SKI STANCE: Easily adjust your ski stance — From 42- to 43-inches wide.
