If the thought of your child whizzing around on a quad bike fills you with dread, get ready to breathe a sigh of relief. Modern quad bikes are designed with safety in mind and there are tons of safety features to keep your kid in one piece! Many quad bikes are speed limited, letting you decide just how fast they can go while they perfect their skills. As they get more confident, you can adjust the speed to suit their experience. Also, the actual frame of the quad bike is designed to withstand even the toughest of terrains, they’re incredibly durable and robust. Keeping your child safe and secure on their ride.
2 They’re great teaching tools
Owning a quad bike will teach your child many important lessons. From the importance of maintaining the bike and performing regular safety checks, to the basics of cleaning the bike once they’ve had fun on the trails. The first moment they ride their bike will be the start of a journey that you can share together and as they learn new coordination, balance and motor skills, they can also start to build their confidence and even progress to quad biking as a sport. Quad bikes are a true passion project and one that you’re both bound to enjoy.
