Many of the Arctic Cat trail sleds come with a unique dual carbide runner, the Arctic Cat Split Ski runners. Where the higher performance sleds come with a single bar carbide for more aggressive cornering, the more trail-oriented models come with the Split runners to provide reduced darting.
But did you know there are actually three different host bar depth options for the split/dual runners? Each one offers more precise cornering with the increasing depth. For normal/average trail speeds and cornering performance, use Arctic Cat #2703-598 & 2703-599.
For higher speeds and more aggressive riding, use #2603-988 & 2703-989.
For the most aggressive performance, use #2603-930 & 2603-931.
The runners are each stamped with a “R” or “L” so you know which ski each runner goes on.
And if you then find you want even more aggressive cornering performance you can switch over to a single runner design, knowing that you will gain back some of the darting and steering effort of a higher performance model.
