Arctic Cat Cross-Country Racer With Championship Pedigree

September 2018 Feature, Arctic Cat

The machine that delivered 13 cross-country championship titles in 2018 returns even better for 2019, with improvements in ergonomics and performance that make the ZR 6000R XC the most potent cross-country snowmobile in its class.

For 2019, the newest consumer-available cross-country racer gets premium handlebar-mounted controls with improved ergonomics, and that transmit visible information on the digital instrument gauge, a new magnetic tether switch and a shorter, more comfortable throttle lever. The new Stealth Lightweight Brake master cylinder provides increased stopping power in a more protected design, with a more comfortable new short-throw brake lever. Revised gearing (with a Torque Overload Sensing gear) and new engine calibration deliver improved performance.

The lightweight, ultra-tough Pro-Cross chassis delivers championship-winning rigidity and ergonomics, and is the foundation for the winning design. It’s matched by the combination of the ARS front suspension and the 129- SLIDE-ACTION rear suspension (with 7-position rear coupling adjustability) that effortlessly carves corners and swallows bumps. Coil-over Fox Zero QS3R shocks on the skis and rear suspension provide premium performance in all terrain conditions via their simplified adjustability and Kashima coating, while a four-wheel rear axle design increases track support in high-load racing conditions.

The auto-adjusting TEAM Rapid Response II drive and TS-273 driven clutch deliver consistent performance without manual adjustment, while a lightweight tubular driven shaft system and TOS chaincase gear maximize drivetrain durability.
