I gotta say, Tucker's return to Arcticwear coincides with (IMHO) his coolest race gear to date.

Welcome back, Tucker. Press Release below:

 

TUCKER HIBBERT REUNITES WITH ARCTICWEAR

Pro Snocross Champion to Race with Arcticwear Race Gear

 Team Arctic’s Tucker Hibbert will launch into the 2014-2015 Snocross racing season with the iconic style, technical innovation and protective features provided by Arcticwear Gear from Arctic Cat.  It’s the same winning combination that helped launch Hibbert’s record-setting career over 15 years ago.

“It just feels right coming home to Arcticwear,” said Hibbert. “Arcticwear is part of the family of Arctic Cat products and people that have been so important throughout my career. It’s a brand full of passion that’s dedicated to performance. I’m very proud to be back in Arcticwear and have it as the official gear of my team.”

Hibbert is an eight-time X Games gold medalist and has 95 Pro class victories – the most of any racer throughout the history of snocross competition. He achieved these historic results through a combination of talent, support and a steadfast pursuit of excellence. His attention to detail is legendary, and he helped design and develop the Arcticwear Jacket and Pants that he will wear on track this season. His design influence will further translate to a signature Sportswear Line for Arcticwear bearing his name and iconic No. 68 in the near future.

“The Hibbert name is synonymous with inventive ideas and performance,” said Tracy Crocker, Vice President-General Manager of Arctic Cat Parts, Garments and Accessories. “Tucker demands the highest performance from himself and from his equipment, whether it’s shock calibration on his snowmobile suspension or the zipper quality on a jacket. That’s the edge he brings to the racetrack and to the Arcticwear gear that he relies upon.”

Correct me if I'm wrong... but isn't that also one of the "pre-firecat" skinny tunnel/track race sleds he was racing on that were part of the development of the firecats ??

Either way, sounds like the clothing dept is getting a boost from this reunion...

Pretty short spindles compared with todays suspensions, almost looks like a lake setup. Crazy how much things have developed since then.

Nice race gear for this season. I can't wait to receive mine. Nice to see TH back in Arctic race gear.

The picture above is the Pre-Firecat chassis (tunnel section)

Surprising Cat didn't put him in the Drift line of clothing like most other Cat sponsored racers. Or did they finally give up on that brand?

I hope they gave up on Drift. Did not care for the gear at all. I miss the days of all of the factory backed racers wearing factory race suits. That was always cool I hope Cat is going back to that!
