Arctic Cat snowmobiles and Atomic Snowboards have renewed their relationship for a second year, marked by the creation of three different â€œconceptâ€ sleds.
â€œThese concept M7â€™s have taken a different graphic design direction than what is typical in the snowmobile industry. Weâ€™re not in the business of building something â€œtypicalâ€. The objective of these concept snowmobiles is to show the snowboard industry that they can purchase the best available mountain sled on the market and custom design it to their liking with the help of Arctic Cat accessories and other various snowboard equipment manufacturers, said Kale Wainer, Media Relations representative for Arctic Cat.
If you want to gain access to the utmost powder in the world, you have to start with a capable snowmobile and the Arctic Cat M7 was born to scale the slopes. This sled has an unfair advantage with the perfect combination of lightweight chassis, suspension and power.
Three M7 snowmobiles will tour the countryside this snow season with various representatives of Atomic Snowboards. The snowmobiles will appear at snow shows, demos, dealers, and will appear in a variety of snowboard DVDâ€™s ridden by Atomic team rider Danny Garrity.
â€œAtomic has had an overwhelming response from these new M7s on the snowboard show circuit! We want the whole snowboard industry to know that Arctic Cat was the first to stand behind us, and we couldnâ€™t ask for a better snowmobile to get us to the sickest powâ€™ on the planet!â€, stated Atomic Rep, Eric Pearson.
M7 153â€™s were selected as a starting point for the Atomic project. The orange and black machines were designed for representatives of the Atomic show tour with custom Argyle graphics derived from Atomicâ€™s Alibi snowboard. The Green M7 was specially designed for Atomic Pro rider Danny Garrity, with graphics straight off the high performance Rapture board.
Several parts from the Arctic Cat accessory catalog were used in the creation of these machines, along with racks by Cheetah Factory Racing Snowboard Racks
