  • Mountain Rear Suspension: This springless 153-in. FOX FLOAT® 3 air shock rear suspension reduces snow buildup weight while providing a full range of pressure/tuning options.
  • Arctic Race Front Suspension: The Hill Climb Racer suspension is designed to muscle you up the steepest chutes. The M 8000 HCR features a wider, 40-41 in. adjustable ski stance, while the M 9000 HCR features a narrower 38-39 in. adjustable ski stance. FOX FLOAT® 3 EVOL shocks optimize handling on the mountain.
  • 8000 2-Stroke Engine: 160-class HP makes it the most powerful 800 engine in the industry. It features a lightweight, quick-revving crankshaft, twin spark plugs per cylinder and weight-saving engine reverse technology. The engine knock sensor provides octane recognition, giving you more fuel options.
  • ProClimb™ Chassis: We need it to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength. The upper spar assembly design is the answer, proving itself on the scales and on the mountain. Shock mounts transfer energy directly to the spar assembly, the strongest point of the chassis. Rider position is ideal.
  • Push-Button Engine Reverse: The push-button reverse is all about quick, easy activation. This feature reverses the direction of the engine rotation. In addition to being smooth it's also a weight savings.
  • Deluxe Digital/Analog Gauge w/Altimeter: Choose between digital and analog speed and tachometer readouts. And check out the altimeter to see just how high up you are. There's also an odometer, two trip meters, engine hour meter, reverse indicator and warning lights.
  • Lightweight Vertical Steering: The lightweight vertical steering provides weight savings and gives you the stable feeling of a fixed post. Swap out the standard 5.5-in. riser block for a different height to create the perfect fit for your riding style.
  • Tether Switch: The tether stop switch will stop your sled if you ever get separated from your machine while riding.
  • Lightweight Mountain Seat: Our new seat is lower and shorter. Now it's easier to hop from one side of your sled to the other as you carve your way through the backcountry.
  • Front-Mounted Heat Exchanger: The heat exchanger on our HCR gives these sleds a huge advantage. The shorter design reduces snow and ice buildup in the tunnel. What’s more, we’ve shaved 4 lbs. off the weight of the previous heat exchanger.
  • Drilled Lightweight Disk Brake: This rotor is 12% larger, yet 60% lighter. You get great performance in all types of conditions, and ultimately, it gives you more confidence in the backcountry.
  • Ice Scratchers: As a part of the heat-exchange system, these ice scratchers are simply invaluable. When there's minimal snow, just lower the ice scrapers to kick up some ice. This will keep the engine cool to prevent overheating.
  • Mountain Skis: Lighter with an increased keel depth for increased cornering traction. They also feature molded-in "gripper" traction on the top side and a ski loop design that is stiffer and provides better hand ergonomics.
  • 2.60 in. 85 Durometer Power Claw™ Track: The Sno Pro® and Limited models utilize 80 durometer rubber, while the HCRs will have the stiffer 85 durometer rubber for superior traction. The lightweight, single-ply track with a 3-in. pitch has curved-forward paddle towers that won't fold over. This track features an industry-leading 2.6-in. lug height.
