FOX® ZERO QS3 Shocks

Easy to adjust, and built for any terrain and riding style. Our premium FOX ZERO QS3 shocks are available in 1.5- or 2.0-inch diameters.

AMS™ Front Suspension

Arctic Mountain Suspension (AMS) puts everything we learned about conquering deep snow onto your crossover Riot X.

ARS™ II Front Suspension

G2 ProClimb™ 7 Mountain Ski

This lightweight ski is contoured for easier steering, and integrates with the AMS spindles for better deep-snow performance.

Adjustable Ski Stance

Easily adjust your ski stance —from 42- to 43 inches on Riot and from 39.5- to 41.5 inches on Riot X — for maximum adaptability.

Reinforced Running Boards

Big air means big impact, which is why Riot's running boards are reinforced with an extrusion for added rigidity.

Haul more gear for an all-day ride with this standard rear rack.
