But go for a ride and the truth comes out. The ProClimb is designed specifically to reduce ice and snow buildup. The hood and console aerodynamically move snow away from the sled. Wide a-arm spacing reduces area for ice and snow attachment, eliminating build up in the front suspension. This year our shorter heat exchanger and powder-coated tunnel prevents accumulation on the tunnel unlike on the competitor’s machines. While they’re being dragged down by up to 47 more pounds of snow and ice,* our sleds fly high and dry all day long. Take another 18 pounds off the 2014 models, and the advantage is clearly ours.
It takes guts, skill and good equipment to head out into the backcountry or race up a hill filled with some of the nastiest bumps and ruts ever seen. Just ask Rob Kincaid, David McClure or any of the Tapio boys. They take their ProClimb™ M's into some of the deepest, steepest most gnarliest places around and come out on top. Their passion doubles as our test track.
The ProClimb chassis is made up of an inner- and outer-formed shell with boxed support structure to make up the two-piece tunnel, giving additional strength and weight savings. Put it all together and you get one amazing chassis.
The tapered design gives the rider better leg positioning for both stand-up and sit-down riding styles. Large running board cutouts clear out snow for easy foot movement on the running boards.
The triangulated design increases rigidity with incredible strength and reduced weight. While the shock angle distributes trail force to the mega-strong triangulated spars.

For 2014 we usher in the new model year with a new engine naming system. In order of horsepower we begin with the 9000, followed by the 8000. These engines are the same 1100 Turbo 4-stroke and 800 H.O. 2-stroke that you have come to rely on for performance and efficiency. We just gave them a new identity to assure everyone knew they are still at the top of the pecking order in this family of power.
180-Class HorsepowerThe 9000 C-TEC4 turbocharged 1056cc 4-stroke engine produces 177 HP – at any elevation and temperature-making it the most powerful production engine ever in a snowmobile. And this intercooled turbo system utilizes 9 psi of boost.
The Arctic Cat® suspension is a sharpshooter’s best friend. However, there is a distinct suspension package for your preferred terrain: The HCR is stiff. The Sno Pro® is firm. The Standard is soft. Take a minute to acquaint yourself with the finer points of each.
It's not all about the engine. Performance also comes from the drive system. Our Torque Control Link™ provides proper belt alignment which extends belt life and the Arctic Drive System™ ties everything together nicely - providing you with the smoothest, most powerful ride out there.
