Product Description

2019 M 8000 HARDCORE (153/162)

Award-winning Ascender Platform with lightweight Ascender Bodywork

The 1.125-inch dropped driveshaft features an increased track-to-tunnel clearance of 3 inches allowing us to use 8-tooth drive sprockets on this model, giving you a flatter approach angle with more floatability and maneuverability. In addition, you’ll also notice a huge difference in your sled handling. This update delivers a more efficient power transfer to the snow, letting you enjoy more horsepower when climbing, carving, side hilling and boondocking.

The Hardcore featuring Fox® Shocks

FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 shocks feature three compression settings that correspond to soft, medium and firm shock calibration. A dial mounted on the remote reservoir can easily and quickly be turned to customize the compression calibration for riding conditions and intensity. They utilize a remote reservoir for fade-free performance, while coil-over springs offer a plush ride in stutter bumps. They’re standard on the skis and rear suspension of 2019 M 8000 Hardcore models.

8000 C-TEC2 Engine with DSI

The 8000 — efficient, responsive and fresh out of St. Cloud, Minnesota. This 2-stroke engine features noticeably faster throttle response and acceleration compared with our previous 8000, plus up to 30% reduction in oil consumption below 7000 rpm, 36% increase in low-end torque and 18% increase in midrange torque. Delivering a rare combination of increased power, reduced emissions and ultra-low oil consumption, the overall crispness sets new standards for performance and rideability in the 160-HP class.





Arctic Mountain Front Suspension

The AMS features mountain-specific geometry, spindles and A-arms for easy-to-maneuver handling in deep snow. Its 27-degree spindle caster angle provides optimal ski camber for off-trail cornering and more predictable counter-steering, especially when side hilling. The lightweight, forged aluminum spindles have minimal surface area, reducing drag and improving performance in deep snow. Dual-phase high-strength alloy steel A-arms are lightweight and durable.





FLOAT-ACTION Rear Suspension

Arctic Cat’s 2019 FLOAT-ACTION Rear Suspension has been improved by switching to two 8-inch diameter rear idler wheels and new 5.5-inch rail-mounted wheels for improved durability. Compared to models from 2015 and older, the FLOAT-ACTION suspension incorporates revised mountain-specific geometry, with longer rear-arm pull rod and revised rail profile that delivers consistent track tension during the full range of travel. A longer front-arm shock works with the pull rod for increased front-arm travel, which improves the ride performance in all conditions, especially in big bumps. The FLOAT-ACTION suspension is built in three lengths to accommodate 141-, 153- and 162-inch track lengths.

153-IN. & 162-IN. Power Claw™ Track

This lightweight, single-ply track with a 3-inch pitch sets the standard for deep-snow performance. Stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won’t fold over. The industry-leading 3-inch lug grips the powder like no other. Available in 153-inch and 162-inch lengths.

ProClimb - 7 G2 Skis

The all-new 2019 ProClimb – 7 G2 Skis feature a new shape that delivers improved flotation with a slightly less aggressive keel shape for easier steering and more consistent performance in varying snow conditions. Molded-in foot traction on the top of the skis adds boot traction and usability for experienced riders. The new G2 skis work in concert with the AMS spindles to deliver a new level of deep-snow performance and adjustability, incorporating a tapered width, from 7 inches at the tip to 6.5 inches in the middle, which works with a unique rubber dampener to keep the ski tips up and floating on top of the snow while preventing diving or knifing. A wide ski saddle accommodates a full 2 inches of lateral ski stance adjustability.

Vertical steering post with 4.5" riser and mountain handlebar
