Features

Traction Alterra ATV

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. Even over rocks, logs and other big stuff you may encounter. Four wheels on the ground means better traction and an overall better ride. Hit the on-the-fly 2WD/4WD switch when you need to get out of nasty places. When you’re in even nastier places, push the switch up again and that engages the front differential lock

2WD/4WD FRONT DIFFERENTIAL LOCK

Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. In 2WD, steering is light and nimble. Shift on the fly into 4WD and power is delivered to the front wheels. The front wheels spin at different speeds while the steering effort remains minimal. For the ultimate traction, activate the electronic front differential lock and power is sent to all four wheels, enabling you to crawl, climb and continue on with confidence.

Transmission Automatic Duramatic

Our Duramatic™ automatic transmission is as bulletproof as they come. It’s made of a centrifugal clutch with primary and driven belt clutches. As RPMs rise, the centrifugal clutch engages, allowing the primary clutch to be engaged with the belt at all times, reducing belt wear and extending belt life.
