CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING CONTROL

ARS™ II FRONT SUSPENSION

This innovative front suspension is built to optimize handling. With increased maneuverability , it's easier than ever to tame the trails. More control means less fatigue, so you'll be able to go farther faster on your ZR.

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. 

NO ROUGH RIDES

137" SLIDE-ACTION™ REAR SUSPENSION

Rough rides are a thing of the past. With this industry-exclusive design that keeps the front arm engaged while the rear arm compresses, you'll hardly feel a bump in the trail.

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. 

ZR Limited Push Button Electric Start

QUICK AND CONVENIENT

PUSH-BUTTON ELECTRIC START

The convenience of electric start is just one of the countless things that sets the ZR apart. With just the push of a handlebar-mounted button, you'll be up and moving.

ZR Limited Goggle Holder

EASY ACCESS

GOGGLE HOLDER

Never lose your goggles again. The integrated goggle holder mounted directly in the dash keeps a critical piece of gear safe and easily accessible.

Arctic Cat Mountain Snowmobile Front Light Accessory

BRIGHTEN ANY RIDE

LED HEADLIGHT

A premium LED headlight is crucial for those night rides. Equipped with both high and low-beams, the headlight casts an LED light pattern with great range and width.

ADJUSTS TO TRAIL CONDITIONS

ADJUSTABLE 42"-43" SKI STANCE

With an adjustable 42-43 inch ski stance, you'll be able to customize your ride even further. Easily set your ski stance based on trail conditions and immediately feel the difference.
