2WD/4WD FRONT DIFFERENTIAL LOCK
Arctic riders prefer to be in control with their on-the-fly 2WD/4WD. In 2WD, steering is light and nimble. Shift on the fly into 4WD and power is delivered to the front wheels. The front wheels spin at different speeds while the steering effort remains minimal. For the ultimate traction, activate the electronic front differential lock and power is sent to all four wheels, enabling you to crawl, climb and continue on with confidence.
Transmission Automatic Duramatic
Our Duramatic™ automatic transmission is as bulletproof as they come. It’s made of a centrifugal clutch with primary and driven belt clutches. As RPMs rise, the centrifugal clutch engages, allowing the primary clutch to be engaged with the belt at all times, reducing belt wear and extending belt life.
Electronic power steering / tilt steering
EPS delivers a true variable assist system by measuring not only vehicle speed, but also steering torque at both the handlebars and wheels. The electronic control unit measures steering input forces, resistance and speed, instructing the motor to deliver turning forces at predetermined levels. And let’s not forget tilt steering, allowing you to adjust the steering wheel higher or lower, however you want.
Alterra Rear Towing Device
All Alterra Models are equipped with a rugged, automotive-style 50mm ball with trailer connector (7-pin) towing device simplifies towing applications.
ATV Speedrack II System
ATV owners covet our SpeedRack® system for its durability and simplicity. You have a huge choice of accessories. For a complete list, your bible is the 2017 Accessories and Arcticwear catalog.
ERGONOMICS AND TURNING RADIUS
The new Alterra chassis features a more upright sitting position, delivering improved ergonomics and reducing handling effort. These machines are indeed more maneuverable, with an improved turning radius, while requiring a shorter reach from the rider.
LED front lights
State of the Art. It combinates high quality materials with future technology. These LED headlamps light the trail when the sun goes off duty.
Power Engine ATV
When we talk about things built right, right here — our H2 and H1 engines have to be at the forefront of the conversation. Built in St. Cloud, Minnesota, these two power plants display plenty of bicep. The H2 1000 V-Twin engine has 951cc of displacement. While the H1 in our 700, 550 and 450 machines displays plenty of ultrasmooth force as well. These engines are built with a Pentroof Hemispherical Combustion Chamber, which provides the power advantages of the hemispherical design plus the efficiency advantages of 4 valves per cylinder.
Rear Storage Compartment
No one ever complained of too much storage. This 5,5 lt. / 1.44 gallon rear storage compartment is a much-appreciated addition. Plus it’s waterproofed. And of course you can open easily also when the licence plate is installed. For easy access the number plate is rotatable.
Our Ride-In suspension features a lower center of gravity while rivaling the competition for best ground clearance and suspension travel. The double A-arms prevent deflections during cornering, resulting in ultra-responsive steering.
This durable, cast-aluminum drop-in system quickly attaches with easy-to-use SpeedLocks, and unlocks in one click for fast removal. Simply the fastest and strongest ATV accessory system in the industry.
Traction Alterra ATV
When you need to go places, over places and through places – traction is paramount. And Arctic Cat ATVs give you plenty of it. Articulation keeps all four wheels in constant contact with the ground. Even over rocks, logs and other big stuff you may encounter. Four wheels on the ground means better traction and an overall better ride. Hit the on-the-fly 2WD/4WD switch when you need to get out of nasty places. When you’re in even nastier places, push the switch up again and that engages the front differential lock
