One-up or two-up, the 2017 Pantera® 7000, the sportiest, most comfortable lodge-hopper ever built. A 4.3-gallon auxiliary gas tank is plumbed directly into the 10.7-gallon primary tank, enabling you to ride this ultra-efficient 135-class HP C-TEC4™-powered machine great distances (200 miles or more) between fill-ups. This one has all the creature comforts like heated seats, hand warmers and plenty of storage for your gear. When everyone’s turning back, your front skis will still be pointing forward.
Some new features only on select models
The ProTour chassis is the lightest, strongest and most capable touring chassis in Arctic Cat history. Both rider and passenger enjoy a neutral riding position, ideal for long-distance comfort. The chassis incorporates aluminum extrusions, stampings, forgings and castings. It’s a design that sets the standard for high-tech construction. A forged steering housing ties together many of the load-bearing chassis components.
The ProTour WT chassis is a platform for what may be the most functional snowmobiles the world has ever known. The ProTour WT is designed for our 20″ wide track. Whether you’re touring or towing, three will not be a crowd with the 3-person seating. There has never been a more capable chassis.
ARS (Arctic Race Suspension) combines tall ski spindles and widely spaced A-arms for the greatest torsional rigidity and strength. The lower A-arms mount to the chassis at an angle from the chassis centerline, with optimal caster/camber angles to improve comfort and cornering traction while reducing bump/steer. The one-piece spindle construction with balljoints eliminates the added weight and stiction of spindle-in-housing designs.
The SLIDE-ACTION suspension incorporates Arctic Cat’s Torque-Sensing Link, allowing a lower and more consistent track tension; three-position rear coupling block adjustability; adjustable spring preload; and a new 3-wheel rear idler wheel system for improved performance. The SLIDE-ACTION design has the unique front arm that features a U-shaped slot that fits over a fixed shaft to allow a half-inch of sliding movement. The result is the full benefit of rear coupling – controlled (or eliminated) ski lift during acceleration – yet with complete use of the front arm travel at all times.
This articulating system allows the rear of the suspension to move up and down as you ride across rougher snow, making your machine more maneuverable and more versatile. Backing up in the unlocked position allows the rear of the frame to lever up, rather than dig into the snow. For more traction, just lock the skid and you’ll have a straight-rail suspension that takes full advantage of the track.
Part of our clean technology family, the 7000 is a 1049cc 4-stroke, renowned for easily accessible midrange power. This quick-revving triple maintains optimal power thanks to EFI and a state-of-the-art engine management system designed to reduce engine braking.
The 700cc 4-stroke EFI engine combines sufficient power with clean technology and incredible fuel efficiency, earning itself a place in the Arctic Cat engine lineup. It’s compact. It’s lightweight. And thanks to electronic fuel injection, throttle response is immediate. Work or play, this 4-stroke is raising eyebrows across the snowbelt.
This 2-stroke fan-cooled carbureted engine is powerful, durable and efficient. Value-focused at 565cc, push-button engine reverse is standard with this fan-cooled beauty
The Arctic Drive System features CVT drive and driven clutches for a combination of smooth shifting, optimal performance, maximum durability; great serviceability; and reduced weight. The new drive clutch features a roller bearing on the shaft that enables an auto-adjusting belt tension design and delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5 percent lower effective starting ratio (while maintaining the top ratio) for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed, with more evenly distributed force for lower belt pressure. It’s a design that’s unique to Arctic Cat.
