Performance



Chassis

The lightest, strongest and most-capable chassis we’ve ever built incorporates aluminum extrusions, stampings, forgings and castings in a design that sets the standard for high-tech design and construction. A forged steering housing ties together many of the load-bearing chassis components.



The ProCross chassis is made up of an inner- and outer-formed shell with boxed support structure to make up the two-piece tunnel, giving additional strength and weight savings. Put it all together and you get one amazing chassis.

The tapered design gives the rider better leg positioning for both stand-up and sit-down riding styles. Large running board cutouts clear out snow for easy foot movement on the running boards.

Suspension

There are three suspension packages to consider when deciding on your new ZR: The LXR is great on the trail – comfortable and plenty responsive. The Sno Pro dishes up a firmer ride, allowing you to explore your favorite corners with unrestrained confidence. Finally there’s the RR, the one for those who possess the first-place-is-the-only-place gene.


A-Arm Attachment Points The shock load is angled back toward the rider's mass, providing ample shock reaction. Maximum valve and spring control allow for better cornering and better ride control over bumps at high speeds. The ball joints allow the right amount of movement and prevents friction when going over dips and chatter bumps, allowing the sled to handle and steer without restriction.
Arctic Race Suspension The front shocks are strategically aligned with the front spars to transfer the impact force to the upper spar assembly - the strongest point of the chassis. This almost eliminates body flex and provides a smooth, comfortable ride. The lighter one-piece forged aluminum spindle also improves turning radius. The ZR® LXRs come standard with Arctic Cat (IFP) gas shocks while the ZR Sno Pro, Limiteds and El Tigrés come standard with FOX FLOAT® 3 shocks. And for those who like the aggressive feel, the ZR RR comes with FOX FLOAT® X EVOL shocks.

Slide-Action Rear Suspension™ It’s on our race sleds. It’s on our consumer sleds. The Slide-Action Rear Suspension 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 bump, keeping your skis firmly planted. It’s the only suspension featuring a U-shaped slot that fits over a fixed shaft to allow a crucial half-inch of sliding movement (Slide-Action). This significant detail controls ski lift during acceleration.

Drive system

It's not all about the engine. Performance also comes from the drive system. Our Torque Control Link™ provides proper belt alignment, which extends belt life, and the Arctic Drive System™ ties everything together nicely–providing you with the smoothest, most powerful ride out there.


Torque Control Link The Arctic Cat-exclusive Torque Control Link™ maintains a rigid connection between the engine and the jackshaft, maintaining perfect alignment of the drive and driven clutches for optimal performance. This feature is not on 7000 models.
Arctic Drive System The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The design incorporates a large driven clutch, optimal clutch spacing and is tunable.

30% Lower Operating Temps We've added deeper fins to our secondary clutch for improved cooling. We're also using a high temp bearing material for less friction and extended durability. Cooler clutches equals better performance and belt life.
