Features

Capabilities

  • UNMATCHED CONTROL: 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.
  • SMOOTH POWER DELIVERY: 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: 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: 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. 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: Designed to integrate with the AMS spindles, this lightweight ski makes it easier than ever to control your ride through the deepest snow.
  • ENHANCED TRACTION: 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 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: 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: With more air comes more impact. That's why the Riot X's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for extra rigidity.
