Why do Arctic riders RIDE MORE™? Some say riding lets us be heroes of our own adventures. From the moment we fire up our engines and take to the trails, we become the thrill‑seekers we were born to be. With great power and great cornering ability comes great responsibility. You see, when we’re not hammering the throttle on the racetrack, we’re hammering it in the workshop. Figuring out ways to improve on 50 years of refinement - one breakthrough at a time. That’s how we move the speedometer forward. Always have.

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 129-in. track propels you down the trail.

9000 C-TEC4™ Engine

This turbo produces an industry-leading 177 HP at any altitude. The response is instant. Power delivery is smooth. Electronic fuel injection means starting your sled will be effortless, even at the highest elevations and coldest temperatures.

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.

Side Panel Vent

New for 2015, this vented side panel increases the airflow to the clutches to reduce drive belt temperatures for optimum performance.

ProCross Chassis

This chassis excels at bringing weight-saving technology to the performance-obsessed rider. The ProCross™ features a tapered two-piece tunnel design. Narrow at the top, wider at the bottom. A forged steering housing ties together many of the load-bearing chassis components.

Deluxe Digital/Analog Gauge

The deluxe gauge lets you choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. There’s also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.

Electric Start

With a simple turn of the key, the new and improved electric start is reliable and effective. Not to mention the easiest way to ignite the fun.

Push-Button Reverse

The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. Just hit the button and backward you go.

Heated Seat

Select models come standard with an electric-heated seat, adding the ultimate level of comfort and warmth.

ProCross™ Front Bumper

These lightweight aluminum bumpers add superior protection and a bold, stylish look. They are scratch resistant and have a powder-coat finish.

Sno Pro Brake Lever

The Sno Pro® brake lever is made from anodized aluminum and extends the whole width of the left handlebar grip, allowing you to reach the lever no matter what position your hand is in.

Tunnel Flares

Snow spray being thrown up on your back on a wet day is sure to cut your day short. These tunnel flares keep the wet snow away and extend your day on the trail.

Mid-Height Windshield

Just enough protection for the comfort you need when the going gets really fast.

Goggle Holder

This is the bag to have. Heat from the engine dries your goggles while you ride, so you always have a dry, warm pair of goggles waiting.

Rear Storage Bag

The mid-capacity rear storage bag holds anything from gloves to water bottles. Secure, easy-to-use quick-fasten straps and semi-rigid construction add plenty of needed strength.

1.25-in. Ripsaw™ Track

Features aggressive angled-lug profiles for outstanding forward and lateral traction on groomed trails. Its “chopped” lug design delivers excellent handling, acceleration and braking on hard-packed surfaces.
