Since 1999, Rox Speed FX has been turning heads with their promotional vehicle builds that showcase their premium products, other aftermarket partners and the major OEMs in the motorsports industry.

When thoughts turned to building their 51st custom, owner Chris Olin and the Rox team, knew they wanted to step out of the box to launch their all-new Rox tunnel storage system, but also utilize their Arctic Cat Alpha One Mountain Cat 154 to show how much they appreciate the service and sacrifice of the law enforcement and military communities.

“The plan fell in place when we started brainstorming in the Rox R&D facility in Northern Minnesota, about building something with special operations and military stealth.” – Chris Olin, Rox Speed FX

The term “special operations” is defined as those activities undertaken by “specially designated, organized, selected, trained, and equipped forces using unconventional techniques and modes of employment” — notably those emphasizing sufficiency, stealth, speed, and tactical coordination by small, highly trained teams. The definition of S.W.A.T. is a unit within a police force that is trained to deal with situations of unusual danger, especially when requiring aggressive tactics or enhanced firepower, as in rescuing hostages, thwarting terrorist attacks or assassinations, and subduing heavily armed suspects. “I appreciate tactical vehicles and some of my favorites are the Rezvani Tank Tactical Urban SUV, Polaris Sportsman MV 850 ATV, and Christini AWD 450 Military edition motorcycle, but nobody had created a snowmobile version that I was aware of,” said Olin.

Going beyond a camouflage vinyl wrap, the Rox team challenged themselves to create a serious entry into the world of covert Special Operations and SWAT builds with goals augmenting the Arctic Cat’s speed, strength, stealth, handling, tactical application, and storage.

Many hours and varying rounds of the tear-down and fitment process took place when powder coating and Cerakoting a multitude of components to ensure the build turned out just right. The end product, dubbed the M51 Tac-Cat, is nothing short of exhilarating and the photos capture many of the new Rox Speed FX products including: Molle-Tec Tunnel Storage System, Handlebars, Bar Pad, E-Stop Relocation Kit and Flex-Tec Handguards.
