New Products: Cat Wraps for Arctic Cat Sleds

(8/14/2013)

CHAOS Cat Wrap from Arctic Cat

Back when Edgar and I were designing the Panther, nobody ran decals on their sleds.

Later, when Roger and I were tweaking the first prototype El Tigre, people ran the square registration decals purchased from the hardware store.

It was during the early 80s when I was helping Z put the final touches on the first AFS Cats that going full-custo with painted pinstripes and registration numbers signified that you were a serious sledder.

And when Kirk and I were imagining the Torque Sensing Link for the ZR line, die-cut vinyl became the new standard for sled sweetness.

These days, you gotta have a wrap.

So after that history lesson, it's time to click to see the new Cat Wraps from Arctic Cat.

(7/11/2013)

I haven’t yet watched the new DVD detailing the highlights of the 2013 USXC cross-country snowmobile race season, but if the footage in this 90-second trailer is any indication, it will be worth the $20 price tag.
