Trying to find a little more info on these sleds... cats seems to be all over the place, imagine that .

Website says slide action skid in one spot, float action in another. Which is it and whats the difference?

Weight says 438... 1lb lighter than the Alpha One... how?

What does it come with for shocks in the skid? Says floats, shows coil overs.

Are the rails braced or 1 piece?

MSRP?


If anyone knows anyone who can get answers I and many others would appreciate it I’m sure. A full list of differences would be schweeet.

i think it will be a hit for hard riders.
the skid looks like coil shocks but with the float action label. Slide action i believe is their torsion sprung short track skid (ZR?).
to me it looks like rail braces.
and yeah, they must have the same person in charge of web details if the mistakes are still there in the specs. we will have to nail it down from the pics. has to be a notably heavier model, but built for serious punishment. looks to me they've made a sled for every rider this year, and look at all the nay-sayin from the keyboard engineers...

Rails look to have the braces installed that are in the accessory catalog. Says adds 7.5-8lb for the rail reinforcement.

This sled is basically to fill the void where the HCR used to be and have a sled to match up with the Freerides and Assault platforms. While it still uses the branded name "floataction" skid it has FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 coilover shocks all the way around. They defiantly need some website updating as the slide-action suspension is basically there torsion spring suspension used on the ZR and some of the XF models. Rails...I couldn't find any info.

I think its gonna be a pretty awesome sled, they just need to provide more details. I personally hate floats and could see myself on one of these!

All the photos show a coil rear track shock too. They can still do a QSL lockout compression adjuster with a coil.

They failed big time on the details, but this sled is exactly what I'm looking for. The walker evans the assaults come with are just junk a 10 year old could bottom out, and they have a wider ski stance. Unless I'm mistaken the HC has the same stance as the rest of the mountain lineup. Same gearing too.

Its a really cool option. The only thing that sucks is how rediculously heavy the stock braces they are using are. You wont bend them, but for a factory option its kind of sad how rough and blocky they look.

For the guy who like to hammer and jump this is a slick setup though. mega strength in one of cats weakest spots coupled with better shocks. It should do really well for the right riders.

Anyone get a good answer on the weight? Trying to figure out how this is lighter then the Alpha?

Also gearing on the website says 0 to 3000 ft? Which I found strange?
