Features

Capabilities

  • ALPHA-ONE™ SINGLE BEAM REAR SUSPENSION: Our single-beam rear suspension unlocks more maneuverability in the backcountry. Up here, there's only one alpha.
  • ADAPT CVT SYSTEM: Lightweight narrow design that increases performance and belt life. The Arctic Cat ADAPT CVT system provides improved throttle response and smooth power delivery.
  • 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 diameters.
  • AMS™ FRONT SUSPENSION: Arctic Mountain Suspension is tailor-made to maneuver in deep snow. The lightweight, forged-aluminum spindles sit at a 27 degree spindle caster angle, providing optimal ski camber for off-trail cornering and more predictable counter-steering when side-hilling. They’re built to reduce drag, while the dual-phase alloy-steel A-arms are lightweight and durable.
  • G2 PROCLIMB™ 7 MOUNTAIN SKI: This lightweight ski is contoured for easier steering, and integrates with the AMS spindles for better deep-snow performance.
  • POWER CLAW™ TRACK: Power Claw Track is built lightweight, with a single-ply design and a 2.86-inch pitch — all so you can master deep snow runs. Its stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won't fold over or take a set, and Attack 20 paddles let you float over the deep stuff.
  • ADJUSTABLE SKI STANCE: Easily adjust your ski stance from 39.5- to 41.5 inches 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.
  • 60TH ANNIVERSARY DECAL: Celebrate 60 years of Arctic Cat with this commemorative decal.
