ZR RR Slide Action Rear Suspension

137" SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension

Get the most out of a coupled suspension, with a unique, industry-exclusive design that keeps the front arm engaged while the rear arm compresses.

Learn More
SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension

Unlock the true potential of a coupled suspension with our unique SLIDE-ACTION design. The front arm fits into a U-shaped slot that allows 0.5 inches of sliding movement, so the front arm won’t collapse whenever the rear arm compresses. That unique design gives you the full benefit of coupling: controlled ski lift during acceleration and the complete use of the front arm at all times. SLIDE-ACTION suspension also allows a lower and more consistent track tension with its Torque-Sensing Link, plus three-position rear coupling block adjustability, adjustable spring preload and a durable 3-wheel rear axle assembly.

FOX ZERO QS3R Kashima-Coated Shocks

No matter your riding style — or what the day brings —  FOX ZERO QS3 shocks will be ready.

Featuring three compression settings (soft, medium and firm) that can be easily adjusted with a dial mounted on the remote reservoir, FOX ZERO QS3 shocks are built for changing terrain. Their remote reservoir delivers fade-free runs, while coil-over springs even out the bumpiest rides. 

These 2.0-inch diameter rear shocks feature a Kashima coating for an even smoother ride.

ZR RR ARS II Front Suspension

Learn More
ARS II Front Suspension

The next level of Arctic Race Suspension (ARS) is here. ARS II gives you better bite on corners and increased ground clearance to deliver more confidence on- or off-trail. We made the forged aluminum spindles 1.5 inches taller from the ski to the lower arm, and gave it more rigid upper A-Arms. Plus, a revised geometry delivers a new roll-center and adjustable cambers, and a swaybar makes for flatter, more predictable cornering on hard pack trails.
