Features

Capabilities

  • POWER TO SPARE: Whether you want to cruise the trail or carve the backcountry, RIOT is available with a 794cc 165HP-class engine or a 988cc turbo-charged 200HP-class engine.
  • PLAYFUL, COMFORTABLE RIDE: The uncoupled CROSS-ACTION rear suspension provides unparalleled agility from powder to hardpack. The design enables the front and rear halves of the suspension to move independently, so riders enjoy excellent cornering and bump absorption on the trail, as well as off-trail weight transfer. The CROSS-ACTION skidframe creates a playful ride quality, with more weight transfer during acceleration, great performance in deep snow, and outstanding comfort and traction over big bumps in all snow conditions. Arctic Cat’s Torque-Sensing Link allows a lower and more consistent track tension, plus you get an adjustable spring preload and a 3-wheel rear axle assembly. The CROSS-ACTION suspension offers 13.5 inches of travel and comes in a 146-inch length with ice-scratchers.
  • SMOOTH PERFORMANCE: The lightweight, durable ADAPT CVT System is the only self-adjusting clutch available on a stock sled. ADAPT has an idler bearing that keeps belt temperature down, helping belts stay tighter and giving you a smoother takeoff and consistent power delivery at slow speeds.
  • CONFIDENCE-INSPIRING HANDLING: The race-proven ARS™ II front suspension delivers superior cornering and more ground clearance for an even better ride ride on- or off-trail. The forged aluminum spindles are 1.5 inches taller from ski to the lower arm, and it features rigid upper A-Arms for optimal control and durability. The next generation 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 roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hardpack trails.
  • EASIER STEERING: The lightweight G2 ProClimb™ 7-inch mountain ski is tapered to stay on top of the snow. The ski works in tandem with the AMS spindles for easier steering and better deep snow performance.
  • GO WIDE OR NARROW: An adjustable 41.5- to 43.5-inch ski stance provides the flexibility to ride in a wide variety of snow conditions. Narrow it up for better agility in the backcountry or widen it out for a flatter, more stable trail ride.
  • BIG AIR-WORTHY: With rugged styling and improved durability, the RIOT's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for extra rigidity and are designed to take the impact when you send it.
