UNMATCHED CONTROL

ALPHA ONE® SINGLE-BEAM REAR SUSPENSION

This revolutionary single-beam rear suspension changes the game for mountain snowmobiles. With more control and maneuverability than any other mountain sled, you can carve up the mountain with ease.

ADAPT CVT

SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY

ADAPT™ CVT SYSTEM

With its lightweight, narrow design that increases performance and belt life, as well as the industry's only self-adjusting clutch, the ADAPT™ CVT system provides better throttle response, smoother power delivery, and a ride like no other.

UNPARALLELED SUPPORT

FOX® 1.5 ZERO QS3 COIL-OVER SKI SHOCKS

With three compression settings, the FOX® 1.5 ZERO QS3 shocks are easy to adjust and neutralize any bumps in the terrain with coil-over springs. With shocks like this, rough rides are a thing of the past.

OPTIMIZED FOR DEEP SNOW

AMS FRONT SUSPENSION

The Arctic Mountain Suspension (AMS) is built specifically to navigate through deep snow. With lightweight spindles and a precision engineered suspension geometry designed specifically with mountain riding in mind, the RIOT X is the ultimate ride for deep snow performance.

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.

SIMPLIFIED STEERING

G2 PROCLIMB™ 7 MOUNTAIN SKI

Designed to integrate with the AMS spindles, this lightweight ski makes it easier than ever to control your ride through the deepest snow.

RIOT X Power Claw Track

ENHANCED TRACTION

POWER CLAW™ TRACK

Unlock the backcountry with Power Claw™, a lightweight track that delivers the ultimate deep snow traction and performance. It's easier than ever to slice straight through deep snow.

POWER CLAW™ TRACK

Power Claw Track is built lightweight, with a single-ply design and a 2.86-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.

ADJUST TO TERRAIN

39.5"-41.5" ADJUSTABLE SKI STANCE

With an adjustable 39.5-41.5-inch ski stance, you can respond to whatever challenges you face quickly and easily. It only takes a couple seconds to adjust, and then you're on your way.

MINIMIZED IMPACT

REINFORCED RUNNING BOARDS

With more air comes more impact. That's why the Riot X's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for extra rigidity.
