A state-of-the-art sled for comfortable yet dynamic trail riding
For 2008, Arctic Cat's F-Series models are improved and better equipped than ever. Last year, engineers created the all-new Twin Spar Chassis, which shifts the rider's feet forward and offers a sportier riding position. This frame is 46-percent stiffer than the Firecat chassis thanks to new self-piercing rivets, forged shock towers and improved shock configuration.Well executed
The Twin Spar chassis moves the rider 20 to 30 cm forward. Therefore, the rider's weight is more centralized, which improves handling. In addition, the more ergonomic position decreases rider fatigue and provides better control. Arctic Cat calls it the "Infinite Rider Positioning" (IRP) system. The seat, handlebars and footrests are easily adjustable to provide optimum positioning for all rider sizes and styles. The raised seat allows a more natural knee bend and thus enhances comfort over long rides. You can go from sitting to standing almost effortlessly.
The F-Series features the Slide-Action rear suspension and the famous, seventh-generation AWS front suspension. According to Arctic Cat engineers, the Slide-Action system maintains full front-arm travel even under full acceleration. The skis always remain in contact with the ground during the acceleration, providing better control regardless of the conditions.
F-Series models also get a new instrument panel with the Deluxe Gauge that lets you choose between digital and analog speed and tach readouts. There's also an odometer, two trip meters, an engine hour meter, a clock, a fuel gauge and several warning lights. Easy to read and cleverly laid out, this dashboard is one of the best in the business.
