M Rear Suspension: This springless FOX FLOAT 2 air shock rear suspension reduces snow buildup weight while providing a full range of pressure/tuning options.
Arctic Race Front Suspension: ARS combines tall lightweight ski spindles and widely spaced A-arms for the greatest torsion rigidity and strength. The lower A-arms mount in a 30-degree angle improve comfort and cornering. And the Sno Pro gets FOX FLOAT 3 shocks.
8000 2-Stroke Engine: The 8000, 794cc, liquid-cooled 2-stroke engine produces 160+ HP. It features a lightweight crankshaft, batteryless EFI, APV electronic exhaust valves, Exhaust Pipe Temperature System and weight-saving engine-reverse technology.
ProClimb™ Chassis: The ProClimb chassis utilizes a triangulated upper-spar assembly which provides incredible strength and reduced weight. Combining an inner- and outer-formed shell with boxed support structure to make up the two-piece tunnel gives additional strength and weight savings. Put it all together and you've got a boondockers dream.
Deluxe Digital/Analog Gauge w/Altimeter: Choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. And check out the altimeter - see just how high up you are. There's also a odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.
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: All M 8000 Sno Pro and Limited models incorporate the front-mounted heat exchanger system, which is a single unit that is nearly 4 lbs. lighter than the full-length heat exchanger. Proven to help reduce snow buildup and added ridding weight. This system has been proven on the HCR for the past two seasons.
Ice Scratchers: As a part of the heat exchange system, these ice scrapers are simply invaluable. When there's minimal snow, just lower the ice scrapers to kick up some ice. This will keep the engine cool and prevent it from overheating.
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 adds plenty of needed strength.
Goggle Holder: Now this is the bag to have. The heat of the engine dries your goggles while you ride, so you always have a dry warm pair of goggles waiting.
Electric Start: With a simple turn of the key, the new and improved electric start will roar your Cat to life. Reliable and always ready to get the fun started.
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.
Push-Button Engine Reverse: The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. This feature reverses the direction of the engine rotation. So just hit the button and backward you go.
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.
2.60 in. Power Claw™ Track: Lightweight, single-ply track with a 3.0-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.
