Purchase Considerations for Kid’s ATVs
– Power Source
Kids’ ATVs are mostly electric powered, although some are gas powered. The electric powered ones are usually smaller than the gas powered type. They also have lower speed limits and are designed for smaller children. This means that gas powered kids’ ATV usually have a higher minimum age, and that is with good reason.
– ATV Size
Kids’ ATVs also vary widely in size, because kids come in different sizes, ranging from 3 years, all the way into the teenage years. Different ATVs have different sizes for this reason, and they also have a minimum age requirement, as well as a maximum kid’s weight rating. The smallest ATVs usually have a minimum age requirement of 3+ years, while the larger ones are rated at 12 years and above.
– Max Speed
In addition to size differences, are also speed differences within the different types of kids’ ATVs. The smallest ones designed for toddlers, usually have speed limits of 5 mph, while the larger and mostly gas powered type can reach speeds of up to 30 mph or more.
– Safety Features
Different ATVs offer different safety features in a bid to increase the safety of the driving child. These safety measures can be anything from high-speed lockouts to power lock brakes, padded handlebars, well-tread tires, and lighting for the night.
Apart from safety features, there are other things that will help to determine your final purchase decision. These include the style of the ATV and whether it is designed with the theme of anything popular, the color of the ATV and whether it is your kids favorite color or not, e.t.c.
