What You Need to Know About Quad Bikes for Children

One of the biggest fads for children nowadays is to own their own quad bikes. Many grownups enjoy off-road adventures with their quads, and can’t wait for their children to join them on any of the many world class off-road South African treks. If your child has started showing interest in a quad bike, then this article will help you to fully prepare them and yourself on what to expect from quad bikes for kids.

Firstly, a quad bike is considered one of the safest ATV vehicles on the market. In part this is due to it having four wheels, which leaves your child less likely to fall over when learning how to ride one of these quad bikes. Another reason why these quad bikes are considered safe is the fact that they come in different sizes as well as different motor strengths. This puts you in charge of choosing the strength of the quad bike for your child.

There is also no need to fret over not finding the right size ATV for your child as there are quad bikes specifically manufactured for children. This leads to a number of things that has to be considered before you decide on which quad bike to purchase for your child. The first and perhaps most important is safety. Safety goes hand in hand with all other considerations that you have to make. Some of the safety features that these child quad bikes offer is a remote control so that you can control the speed of the quad bike.

It also comes with an automatic cut off switch. A child should not be allowed to ride a quad bike that has a bigger engine than a 50cc. It is important that the child is able to keep their feet off the ground when sitting on the quad bike. The reason for this is that it is easy to get your legs or feet trapped under the wheels of the quad if you are not being careful. That is why it is essential that a child’s feet do not reach the ground when sitting firmly on a quad bike.

Quality is important as it will minimise the risk of the ATV breaking down or the wheels jamming while the child is on the quad bike, possibly causing the bike to flip or jolting forward and throwing the child off. These may sound like trivial things, but are a reality and that is why you should make sure that all the parts that are on the quad bike are of the best quality.
