Is Your Child Ready?

The most important thing to consider when shopping for youth ATVs is whether your child is ready for one. For example, kids may not have enough of the strength and body mass required to control and steer the ATV. Kids who haven’t gotten their license yet also don’t have the experience of the road, which can make it harder for them to understand the concepts behind safe driving and adjusting their speed for a given terrain.

What Type of Model Should I Get?

If your kid is ready, you will want to make sure the model you get is the right size. Youth ATVs should have a recommended age of operator. Some models are suited for six to eleven-year-olds and usually offer engines under 70cc. Other models are made for 12 to 15-year-olds and offer engines around 90cc. Make sure that you only look at models that your child has the body weight, strength, and ability to control. It doesn’t matter if you’re looking at gas powered ride on cars for kids or other styles of models – make sure you have full confidence your child can stay in control!

How Can I Keep My Child Safe?

You can’t fully eliminate all safety risks of Youth ATVs, but you can certainly reduce them! The CPSC recommends every rider takes a safety course before they head out on the trails. It’s important that your child fully understands all the mechanics of operating an ATV so that they can do so safely. There are many programs out there designed for teaching kids to ride an ATV.

Another important factor is the proper riding gear. Youth ATVs are an exposed vehicle, which means your child can face a range of obstacles. The beating wind can get bitterly cold in no time and even lead to issues such as frostbite or hypothermia. The burning sun beating down on them can get unbearably hot and even lead to issues such as heat stroke. A crash can get dangerous fast without the proper gear. Then there’s the issue of kicked-up debris or low-hanging branches. The trail can be riddled with safety issues, which is why protective gear is important. They’ll need a sturdy helmet, eye protection, full-length clothing, and sturdy boots and gloves.

Finally, you’ll want to lead by example. If your child watches you make unsafe maneuvers or go too fast, it provides more justification that they can as well. Display proper safety techniques anytime they watch you ride so that you can model safe riding practices. Always wear the proper safety gear and lead by example. You’d be amazed how much watching their parent ride safely can affect how safe a kid rides!
