Arctic Race Front Suspension

Tall, lightweight ski spindles and widely spaced A-arms provide great torsion rigidity and strength. Angling the shock load back toward the rider’s mass, results in optimal caster/camber to improve comfort and cornering. FOX FLOAT® 3 shocks and a sway bar provide excellent control and handling.

Slide-Action Rear Suspension™

Slide-Action maintains a free-acting front arm while coupling under torque over bumps, and during aggressive cornering and acceleration. As the rear transfer blocks are engaged, the front arm follows the bumps, keeping your skis firmly planted as your 137-in. track propels you down the trail.

8000 2-Stroke Engine

160-class HP makes it 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.

“For the new model year, Cat segmented its crossover machines into the XF ProCross and XF ProClimb categories: The ProCross-based crossovers are for riders who stick primarily to trails but want the extra track length either for comfort or for occasional forays into the backcountry. The ProClimb machines Cross Country and High Country models are for the 50 percent-plus off-trail crowd.” ----- SnowGoer
