The Sno Pro 500 played an important role in developing the ProCross and ProClimb platforms upon which most 2014 Arctic Cat snowmobiles are based. While it doesn’t make the headlines it used to, the Sno Pro 500 is still a force to be reckoned with on snocross and cross-country racecourses, and for spirited trail rides, too. Suspension calibrations are firm and the no-frills list of features keeps the sled simple. The engine is rated at 85 hp by Arctic Cat and the Wilwood brake slows the quick machine in an instant.
