Mountain Rear Suspension: This springless 153-in. FOX FLOAT® 3 air shock rear suspension reduces snow buildup weight while providing a full range of pressure/tuning options.
Arctic Race Front Suspension: Tall, lightweight ski spindles 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 handling. FOX FLOAT® 3 shocks give you the feel required to boondock through the backcountry.
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.
ProClimb™ Chassis: We need it to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength. The upper spar assembly design is the answer, proving itself on the scales and on the mountain. Shock mounts transfer energy directly to the spar assembly, the strongest point of the chassis. Rider position is ideal.
Push-Button Engine Reverse: The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. This feature reverses the direction of the engine rotation. In addition to being smooth it's also a weight savings.
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.
Deluxe Digital/Analog Gauge w/Altimeter: Choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. And check out the altimeter to see just how high up you are. There's also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.
ProClimb Front Bumper: These lightweight aluminum bumpers add superior protection and a bold, stylish look. They are scratch resistant and have a powder-coat finish.
Telescoping Handlebar: Drop down for the trail. Pull up for the powder. Available on many M Series models, the quick-adjust telescoping-steering system allows riders to quickly adjust handlebar height within a four-inch range, using a simple hand-operated locking collar.
Front-Mounted Heat Exchanger: This M Limited model incorporate the front-mounted heat exchanger system. The unit is nearly 4 lbs. lighter than the full-length heat exchanger and has been proven to help reduce snow buildup which equates to added weight. This system has been proven on the HCR for the past two seasons.
Drilled Lightweight Disk Brake: This rotor is 12% larger, yet 60% lighter. You get great performance in all types of conditions, and ultimately, it gives you more confidence in the backcountry.
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.
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.
Ice Scratchers: As a part of the heat-exchange system, these ice scratchers are simply invaluable. When there's minimal snow, just lower the ice scrapers to kick up some ice. This will keep the engine cool to prevent overheating.
Mountain Skis: Lighter with an increased keel depth for increased cornering traction. They also feature molded-in "gripper" traction on the top side and a ski loop design that is stiffer and provides better hand ergonomics.
2.60 in. Power Claw™ Track: This lightweight, single-ply track with a 3-in. pitch sets the standard for deep snow performance. Stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won't fold over. This track features an industry-leading 2.6-in. lug height.
