No matter your riding style — or what the day brings —  FOX ZERO iQS shocks will be ready.

Featuring three compression settings (Soft, Medium and Firm) that can be easily adjusted with a dial mounted on the remote reservoir, FOX ZERO iQS shocks are built for changing terrain. Their remote reservoir delivers fade-free runs, while coil-over springs even out the bumpiest rides. Available in 1.5- or 2.0-inch diameters.

Engine Lineup

Choose from two powerful, capable engine families for your ZR Limited. The new 8000-Series C-TEC2 delivers the next level of ultra-clean, ultra-responsive Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine performance with enhanced 165-hp class power and precision oil. Designed by Arctic Cat and built in St. Cloud, Minn, this new 794cc C-TEC2 twin also features new cylinders, pistons, combustion chamber, flywheel, and fuel rail, plus a new fuel calibration strategy and Arctic Power Valve system with 3-stage control of the auxiliary exhaust ports via side valves.

Or opt for the 6000-Series 599cc C-TEC2 Engine with Dual-Stage Injection (DSI)  the first clean technology Arctic Cat 2-stroke engine and the leader in 125-hp class performance.

Both engines feature: 

  • ECM-controlled electronic oil pump
  • Batteryless EFI
  • Exhaust Pop Temperature Sensor (EPTS)
  • Knock Sensor
  • Engine Reverse Technology
  • An exceedingly robust, lightweight design
ARS II Front Suspension

The next level of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm, and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a new roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hard pack trails. 

SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension

Unlock the true potential of a coupled suspension with our unique SLIDE-ACTION design. The front arm fits into a U-shaped slot that allows 0.5 inches of sliding movement, so the front arm won’t collapse whenever the rear arm compresses. That unique design gives you the full benefit of coupling: controlled ski lift during acceleration and the complete use of the front arm at all times. SLIDE-ACTION suspension also allows a lower and more consistent track tension with its Torque-Sensing Link, plus three-position rear coupling block adjustability, adjustable spring preload and a durable 3-wheel rear axle assembly.
