2013 Arctic Cat Sno Pro 600 Rear SuspensionFor 2013 Arctic Cat has made several key changes to the Sno Pro 600. First is a new chassis geometry, which is designed to offer added ground clearance to improve predictability and allow the rider to attack the track with confidence while scrubbing less speed. A total of 1.35 inches of ground clearance has been added at foot pockets, along with flatter running board angles. As well, a single layer 0.8-inch thick tunnel offers increased strength, while new rear suspension mounting positions give the track drive more ground clearance.
