2018 Arctic Cat PANTERA 6000 ES
QUICK-RELEASE BODY PANELS
These new one-piece body panels radically improve venting. The two quick-release tabs provide easy access to the engine compartment for general maintenance.
NEXT-GEN BODY PANELS
Arctic Cat’s Next-Gen body panels are designed to seamlessly cut through the air with as little atmospheric tension as possible. With only a quarter-turn of the two quick-release tabs, the side panel comes off and provides easy access to the engine compartment for general maintenance.
6000 C-TEC2 ENGINE WITH DSI
This 599cc 2-stroke DSI is the unmodified version of the engine that’s been launching Team Arctic down the racetrack since 2012. This quick-revving, 125-class horsepower C-TEC2™ power mill is the product of a world-class engine assembly plant — ours. Whether you’re riding a ZR® an M or a Crossover, the 6000 is one of the most satisfying engines found in a snowmobile.
ARCTIC DRIVE SYSTEM WITH TEAM RAPID RESPONSE DRIVE AND TEAM RAPID RESPONSE BOSS DRIVEN CLUTCHES
The Arctic Drive System™ features a lightweight magnesium chaincase. The new TEAM® Rapid Response II™ drive clutch features an auto-adjusting belt tension design that delivers consistent performance without manual adjustments. It also features a 12.5% lower effective starting ratio while maintaining the top ratio for smoother engagement and reduced belt wear at drive-away speed.
ARCTIC RACE FRONT SUSPENSION WITH ARCTIC CAT GAS IFP SHOCKS
The Arctic Race front suspension’s geometry was developed through racing. Our unique wide A-arm spacing complements the chassis design, which allows us to maintain a tighter suspension. Arctic Cat gas IFP shocks feature a hard-anodized aluminum body, 0.5″ shaft, aluminum internal floating piston, and high-quality seals and ice scrapers. For added strength, the eyelet on the shaft end is forged, replacing the welded design.
SLIDE-ACTION REAR SUSPENSION WITH ARCTIC CAT IFP SHOCKS
Our SLIDE-ACTION Rear Suspension incorporates a U-shaped front-arm slot that fits over a shaft bolted across the tunnel. This creates a half-inch of sliding movement, which keeps the front arm from torque locking and helps keep the skis planted during acceleration. Add in our Arctic Cat (IFP) shocks and you’ve got comfort and confidence even in the bumpiest conditions.
146-IN. COBRA™ TRACK WITH 1.35-IN. LUGS
The 146-in. Cobra track’s cupped lug design delivers superior handling, acceleration and braking in loose snow conditions. Its traction teeth add extra grip on hard-packed surfaces. The 1.35-in. paddles provide that extra traction needed when you find yourself blazing your own path.

PROTOUR - 6 SKIS

Not all mirrors are the same. Ours are heavy-duty, built to last and made to withstand whatever winter throws at them.

Cold wind and hands don’t get along. These will help deflect that wind to keep your passenger’s hands nice and warm.
