TAKE ON TOUGH TERRAINS

OFF-ROAD RACING INSPIRED SUSPENSION SYSTEM

The Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition utilizes a suspension system built specifically to dominate uneven terrain. With unequal length A-Arms that neutralize camber, this side-by-side is able to gain more traction and stabilize easier through tough turns and tougher trails.

OFF-ROAD RACING INSPIRED SUSPENSION SYSTEM

UNEQUAL LENGTH A-ARM FRONT SUSPENSION

A better ride starts up front. Our unequal length A-arms neutralize camber, grabbing more of the ground to stabilize you through every white-knuckle corner.

REAR TRAILING ARM SUSPENSION

Hardcore trophy truck and Class 1 buggy racers will recognize the vehicle’s rear trailing arm. It links to the front instead of the sides to keep your wheels moving up-and-down, not side-to-side.

80% LESS TRACK-WIDTH CHANGE

Many vehicles are plagued with side-to-side motion that pushes you off course, requiring constant steering corrections and robbing you of stability. Wildcat XX creates 80% less track-width change than the competition for the smoothest ride in the industry.

RACE-WORTHY POWER

CLASS-LEADING 130HP ENGINE

Equipped with a class-leading 998cc, three cylinder, 4-stroke EFI engine producing 130HP, the Arctic Cat Black Hills Edition is built to push the limits. The powerful DOHC engine allows for better airflow with fewer obstructions and offers more efficient, consistent performance. With power like this, prepare for exhilaration.

ELIMINATE BUMPS

PREMIUM FOX 2.5 PODIUM QS3 SHOCKS WITH BOTTOM-OUT CONTROL

With the Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition, you won't have to compromise between shocks that can absorb big bumps and shocks that offer a more comfortable ride- we gave the side-by-side both. A three-position shock dial control lets you switch from soft, medium, and firm settings depending on the terrain, and with bottom-out control, you'll get an extra 3,000 lbs of damping force when you hit bumps in the trail.

ADAPT CVT

SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY

ADAPT CVT CLUTCH

For enhanced power delivery, the Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition uses the exclusive ADAPT CVT clutch system. The Drive and Driven clutches are lighter-weight and employ an advanced idler system to maintain constant belt tension, which lengthens belt life, minimizes wear, and maximizes throttle response.

ADAPTABLE CONTROL

SHIFT ON-THE-FLY 4WD WITH LOCKING FRONT DIFFERENTIAL

With quick and easy 2/4-Wheel Drive selectability, your Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition can shift on-the-fly between 2WD and 4WD depending on what terrain you're ready to tackle. If you need even more traction, the ALL-NEW locking front differential exclusive to the Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition puts maximum torque to all four wheels. With this epic side-by-side built for the tricky trails, you'll be more in control of your ride than ever before.

BORN TO CLIMB

ALL-NEW LOWER GEAR RATIO TRANSAXLE

The Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition is built with an all-new lower gear ratio transaxle, designed specifically considering the tough trails you'll encounter. For challenging climbs and crawls, this specialized transaxle increases traction in lower gears, giving you more grip on uneven terrains. This new transaxle has 40% reduced low gear ratio, making it stronger and more durable, so you'll be able to take on more.

KEEP COOL

NEW CLUTCH COVER AND COOLING SYSTEM

The Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition is equipped with an all-new clutch cover and cooling system, equipped to seal water and cool the vehicle more efficiently than the standard Wildcat XX. This offers steady airflow throughout the vehicle and keeps the CVT belt cool and dry in the heat, so you can keep riding all day without taking a breather.

ELEVATE YOUR RIDE

15-INCH GROUND CLEARANCE

With more ground clearance comes more exploration. The elevated 15-inches of ground clearance offered by the Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition keeps you high above the terrain, along with obstacles and debris. This side-by-side leaves those all in the dust.

BIGGER AND BADDER

32-INCH TIRES

The upgraded 32-inch Kenda Klevers trail tires on the Wildcat XX Black Hills Edition will give you more traction on tough terrains and higher ground clearance. These larger tires will elevate your ride, also absorbing some of the shock from hardcore trail riding.
