AMS FRONT SUSPENSION
Arctic Mountain Suspension is tailor-made to maneuver in deep snow. The lightweight, forged-aluminum spindles sit at a 27 degree spindle caster angle, providing optimal ski camber for off-trail cornering and more predictable counter-steering when side-hilling. They’re built to reduce drag, while the dual-phase alloy-steel A-arms are lightweight and durable.
FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 COIL-OVER SKI SHOCKS
A dial mounted on the remote reservoir of these FOX 1.5 ZERO QS3 shocks lets you instantly switch between soft, medium and firm shock calibration to adapt to changing conditions. They utilize a remote reservoir for fade-free performance and coil-over springs to smooth out bumps.
POWER CLAW TRACK
Power Claw Track is built lightweight, with a single-ply design and a 3.0-inch pitch — all so you can master deep snow runs. Its stagger-set, curved-forward paddle towers won't fold over or take a set, and Attack 20 paddles let you float over the deep stuff.
REINFORCED RUNNING BOARDS
Big air means big impact, which is why Hardcore's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for added rigidity.
Mounted right in the dash for quick access, this integrated goggle holder keeps a key piece of gear safe and sound.
Ride until the sun goes down — then keep riding, with this premium LED headlight for night riding.
ADJUSTABLE 35.5"-37.5" SKI STANCE
Easily adjust your ski stance in seconds — keep it wide for the trails or narrow through the trees.
