ArticCat ZR 200 ES Kid-Friendly Snowmobile

Usually, Pro Picks is a show that highlights cool and innovative tools and gear. In this edition, though, Mark and Josh are talking about something that is neither tool nor gear; instead, it’s a snowmobile. The ArticCat ZR 200 ES is a machine that Josh is particularly passionate about as it allows for kids to get a taste of a little wintertime adventure. It’s the same machine as the regular ArticCat ZR 200, but scaled down so that kids can have full and safe control of the machine during operation. For all of Mark and Josh’s thoughts on this unorthodox Pro Pick, watch the video above. To see more CPT Pro Picks, click here.

Pro Picks 

In every episode of Pro Picks, Mark and Josh discuss the new tools, gear and materials that they’re excited about and literally give them goose bumps (especially Josh). They also rant and rave about existing products they’ve used, love, and feel that every pro should consider.
