Always Out Front
G-Force Consulting Inc. was founded by Gary L. Gustafson in 2005 after spending 13 years at industry leaders Polaris and Arctic Cat. Born with a natural interest in the outdoors and technology, Gary was on the engineering team that launched the iconic Polaris Ranger and Sportsman ATV platforms. He was an original member of the Management team that launched the Polaris Development Process, and also the original inventor of what became the Polaris RiderX and Ride Command infotainment systems plus other technologies such as Active Descent Control. While at Arctic Cat, Gary led a team that launched industry firsts including the award-winning CatComm radio system and a lightweight, battery-less push button transmission system for snowmobiles. Gary also spoke at press events to promote the Arctic Cat brand and technology.
