ARCTIC DRIVE SYSTEM WITH TEAM RAPID RESPONSE DRIVE AND TEAM RAPID RESPONSE BOSS DRIVEN CLUTCHES
The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The design incorporates a large TEAM® driven clutch and TEAM drive clutch. By eliminating belt skid, these clutches reduce temperature and transfer more power to the track. In addition to their incredible strength, these clutches are known for their easy and precise tuning.
ARCTIC MOUNTAIN FRONT SUSPENSION WITH ARCTIC CAT GAS IFP SHOCKS
The Arctic Mountain front suspension packs the essentials. The ProClimb-7 mountain ski is 7″ at the tip, tapering to 6.5″ at the center to enhance your carving. Single-post, angled-out spindles help you shed some sled weight while maximizing quality and strength. Arctic Cat gas IFP shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, 0.5″ shaft, aluminum internal floating piston, and high-quality seals and ice scrapers. For added strength, the eyelet on the shaft end is forged, replacing the welded design.
FLOAT ACTION REAR SUSPENSION
The mountain suspension on the SE is fitted with aluminum Arctic Cat® (IFP) shocks. Coil-over rear shocks provide preload adjustment and unsurpassed ride quality.

162-IN. POWER CLAW TRACK WITH 2.25-IN. LUGS
This lightweight, 162″ single-ply track with a 3″ pitch sets the standard for deep snow performance. Stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won’t fold over. 2.25″ lug height lets you go deep with confidence.
HCR-TYPE HEAT EXCHANGER
Proven on our HCR model for the past four seasons, this exchanger is nearly 4 lbs. lighter than full-length versions. Plus it reduces snow build up to reduce even more weight.
As part of the heat exchange system, ice scratchers can save the day when there’s minimal snow but plenty of ice. In that kind of riding condition, lowering the ice scrapers kicks up ice to help prevent your engine from overheating.
Want to shift your weight? This puts the extra leverage you need right in your hands.
PROCLIMB - 7 SKIS

5.5" RACE-HEIGHT WINDSHIELD
