XF models with the 137-inch track are trail sleds with a few extra inches of suspension to bridge bumps and aid in occasional backcountry excursions. The XF 7000 series is based on the familiar ProCross chassis, but it has a power option that’s new to Arctic Cat riders: a Yamaha three-cylinder four-stroke that puts out about 135 hp. The Sno Pro package is designed for aggressive riders who need firmer suspension calibrations than their LXR counterparts and the convenience of adjustability, thanks to Fox FLOAT shocks. Color options are green or orange.
