Shopping for four wheelers for kids? Here are some of the best.

Concerned parents may be hesitant to purchase four wheelers for kids. However, purchasing a four wheeler for your child made specifically with children in mind may help your child resist the urge to play with the vehicles far too large and powerful for their size.

Electric Motors

Four wheelers for kids often have electric motors and are perfect for the littlest off-roading enthusiasts in your household. Electric engines, similar to those in big wheels, don’t allow these vehicles to go very fast. While some electric ATV models can go up to 10 mph, controls are available on models made specifically for children that allow parents to set the highest allowable speed for the ATV. Electric ATVs are great for teaching ATV safety to your children, especially if they are growing up around ATVs. Be sure your child always wears his or her helmet, and teach them safety tips from an early age.

Coolster 110cc SportMax Kids ATV

This ATV is one that can grow with your child. The gas engine can go as fast as 20 mph, but has a throttle governor which allows parents to set the max speed for their younger children who are just beginning to ride. Another parental safety feature included with this four wheeler for kids is a remote kill switch - which allows parents to shut off the ATV wherever it is, giving peace of mind to mothers and fathers everywhere. It includes an automatic transmission - which is recommended for beginner riders. The maximum weight suggested for this model is 154 lbs and the minimum age suggested is 7 years old.

Four Wheelers for Kids: Safety Tips

All children should be supervised while riding ATVs up until the age of 16. It is important for parents to consider their child’s physical and emotional development before putting them on a four wheeler. Children should be large enough to sit comfortably on the four wheeler and should be emotionally mature enough to make wise decisions while operating their four wheeler. Four wheelers for kids do have extra safety features, so you can rest easy trail riding with your kiddo. Child-friendly four wheelers are available for all different age and skill levels. Be sure to get the right size and power for your child - consult with a local four wheeler dealer or Polaris dealer who will be able to tell you if a particular ATV is a good fit for your child.
