The result is a track that bends and conforms to the snow, whether the sled is on a sidehill, flat surface or climbing in deep powder. With maximum side flex, riders can easily maneuver the Alpha One Mountain Cat to a degree not possible with conventional snowmobiles, carving circles well inside the tightest turns that other machines aren’t capable of. The suspension is light and stiff, allowing the new track to flex and conform to the snow and riding surface. And it still rides down a groomed trail like traditional mountain sleds.
A full 11 lbs. lighter than traditional designs and all but free of trapped snow while being ridden, Alpha One sets a new benchmark in lightweight mountain performance and maneuverability.
Other new-for-2019 features include the G2 ProClimb-7 skis that improve balance and flotation, easy steering effort and give more consistent performance in varying snow conditions. The molded-in boot traction adds sure-footed control and usability for expert backcountry riders. Riders will also appreciate the new Stealth Lightweight Brake master cylinder and short-throw brake lever, which provide enhanced braking performance and ideal ergonomics in a more protected design.
Like all 2019 M Series machines, it features new, premium handlebar-mounted controls that are optimized for use while riding, with improved ergonomics, and that transmit visible information on the digital instrument gauge. It includes a new magnetic tether switch to complement the key ignition as well as a new handlebar wiring cover that improves cockpit aesthetics.
Alpha One also features a fixed (non-telescoping) and vertical steering post, 11.7-gallon fuel tank, halogen headlight, lightweight aluminum-body Arctic Cat IFP gas shocks, a front-mounted heat exchanger that sets the standard for reduced ice buildup, plus standard ice scratchers.
The 2019 Arctic Cat M 6000 Alpha One comes in Black/Ice Blue.
