Backcountry videographer Taylor Fisk recently spent some time on the other side of the camera by test riding Arctic Cat's 2017 M 8000 Mountain Cat 153. As you can see in this video released by Arctic Cat
, Fisk is no slouch when it comes to navigating the backcountry.
Here’s what Fisk had to say about the new 2017 Mountain Cat in comparison to his current 2016 M 8000 Limited:
“My level of comfort on this sled was ten-fold what it was on my ’16 limited. I can ride it faster, with much more confidence on the steepest sidehills and down elevators. The narrowed bodywork and running boards really help with boondocking in tight areas since you are able to get further forward on the running boards. Arctic Cat continues to improve upon the most durable, agile M-Series platform. If you are serious about riding the backcountry, the Mountain Cat is the real deal.”
