Wildcat 1000i X

Arctic Cat engineers have dialed things up yet again by prying even more horsepower out of the Arctic Cat-built 1000 H2 EFI engine. Needless to say, the 90+ horsepower comes effortlessly. The privilege of getting all that power to the ground belongs to the TEAM Rapid Response clutch.

Wildcat X
As with all Wildcats, the X is revered for its 5-link rear suspension, good for 18" of travel. The mega-rugged TEAM Rapid Response clutch tames the 90+ horsepower brute force within. The X gets Maxxis® Bighorn tires as well as front and rear painted aluminum bumpers plus JRi ECX-1 adjustable shocks.

TEAM Rapid Response Clutch

The rugged TEAM® Rapid Response™ clutch gets high marks. It’s lightweight, tough and designed to create minimal friction. But without a doubt the best thing about it is how effortlessly it transfers power.    

5-LINK Rear Suspension / FOX Podium

The 5-link rear suspension keeps the maximum tire patch on the ground by creating 18 inches of rear suspension travel. FOX® Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment let you dial in your ride.

13'' Ground Clearance

The limits of articulation are stretched even further with 13" of ground clearance. Rocks, logs, even downed trees are there for your climbing enjoyment.

18'' Rear Suspension Travel

Our theory is this: give ’em tons of suspension travel and they will find a way to use it. Industry-leading 18" of travel allows you to hit the sand dunes at your own dominating pace.

FOX Podium Shocks

Adjustable FOX Podium shocks featuring 23-position compression adjustments provide a more precisely tuned ride resulting in superior handling.

Fox Podium Shocks with Compression Adjust and Swaybar

All-new adjustable Fox Podium shocks with 23-position compression adjustment for a more precisely tuned ride and superior handling. Why taste the dust of others, when you can taste victory. The new sway bar helps control body roll which provides you with better handling in the corners.


Maxxis Bighorn Tires

Maxxis® Bighorn tires with their wide footprint, excellent shock absorption and large shoulder lugs provide great traction on all types of terrain. In deep sand these tires make you feel right at home. Standard on X models.
