Arctic-Cat A-Arm Guards
A-Arm Guard & Float Plate Protection for Arctic Cat Snowmobiles
As manufactures try to shave weight in any place they can, we have seen some weaker chasses and a-arms as a result to absorb the impact before stressing the bulkhead and other components. (hey, its physics – energy has to go someplace). Add that to the more aggressive chasses, stronger motors and more aggressive carbides we have witnessed a rock on a trail, a lurker under the snow or the infamous stump we are bound to have issues. Not only are our a-arm guards a great way to protect a frontal hit, it helps distribute the impact over four of the cushion clamps that attach the guard to your a-arm. The impact is now better evenly distributed yet flexible to allow a better impact. Our products are made out of lightweight aluminum and stainless hardware allowing for the most durable protection with weight in mind.
We hear from satisfied customers all of the time commenting how the a-arm guards have saved the day and without the added protection of the a-arm guards they would have been done for the day/trip. They now realize the upward deflection and use of non-marring stainless clamps deflects obstacles under you’re a-arms and the impact across the flexible clamps allowing for give as needed yet rigidity to the impact. In fact, we have even seen the use of the plate as a shock mount when a hit to the upper a-arm broke a shock. (it’s amazing how creative we can all become when you’re in the back woods)
