With new controls on both sides of the handlebars, Arctic Cat improved another rider touch-point with the introduction of a new Hayes Stealth master cylinder and lever. You’ll instantly notice the improved bend and reach of the lever but it’s likely the details you won’t see that perhaps represents a bigger deal, especially for mountain riders. A more robust reservoir features support towers which in turn protects it from damage, especially in situations where you may “roll the sled” to get unstuck. While we wish the brakes had more feel, we can keep wishing with a better grip thanks to the new design.
