18'' Rear Suspension Travel

Our theory is this: give ’em tons of suspension travel and they will find a way to use it. Industry-leading 18" of travel allows you to hit the sand dunes at your own dominating pace.

13'' Ground Clearance

The limits of articulation are stretched even further with 13" of ground clearance. Rocks, logs, even downed trees are there for your climbing enjoyment.

5-LINK Rear Suspension / FOX Podium

The 5-link rear suspension keeps the maximum tire patch on the ground by creating 18 inches of rear suspension travel. FOX® Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment let you dial in your ride.

Exoskeleton Frame

Inspired by the exoskeleton design of sand rails, the Wildcat’s chassis is built from high-strength low-alloy steel, sporting a first-class full-perimeter design. The full-perimeter frame is an industry first on a production vehicle. With a 40/60
weight distribution, the front end remains light and nimble when attacking tough terrain, while the lower center of gravity produces a more comfortable and confident ride.

TEAM Rapid Response Clutch

The rugged TEAM® Rapid Response™ clutch gets high marks. It’s lightweight, tough and designed to create minimal friction. But without a doubt the best thing about it is how effortlessly it transfers power.    

Four Seats

With four race-inspired bucket seats, the thought of a double date just got a whole lot better.

When you need to go places, over places and through places – traction is paramount. And Arctic Cat ATVs give you plenty of it. Articulation keeps all four wheels in constant contact with the ground.
