ZR Limited ARS II Front Suspension

ARS II Front Suspension

Designed to deliver the increased cornering bite and ground clearance you need for confidence-inspiring handling.

Learn More
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. 

ZR Limited Slide Action Rear Suspension

137" SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension

Get the most out of a coupled suspension, with a unique, industry-exclusive design that keeps the front arm engaged while the rear arm compresses.

Learn More
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

Push-Button Electric Start

Get the convenience and ease of electric start with a handlebar-mounted button.
