Kids Petrol Quad Reviewed: Best Quad for the Quid

What to Look For When Buying a Kids Petrol Quad

1. Safety

First and foremost, the most important thing to consider is the safety a petrol quad can offer to your child. As much as kids petrol quads are fun to use, they can pose a health risk especially when their users fall over. Therefore, you should look for safety features and warnings on a quad before buying it.

Firstly, buyers must check for a rollover warning indicated on a warning level on a quad to learn the different procedures in case of a rollover. In addition, a rollover warning label informs its users on how to avoid a rollover and the things to do if they get into a rollover. Secondly, a quad bike should indicate its angle stability threshold to inform buyers of how much incline and decline their quad can handle. Lastly, a quad bike should offer a balanced construction to ensure a safe and comfortable experience during use.

2. Construction

As stated, a well-constructed kids petrol quad will provide its user with a stable ride that is less likely to roll over. Furthermore, a kids petrol quad that features excellent quality and craftsmanship possesses a longer lifespan, providing your child with playtime that is both fun and worry-free. When checking a kid’s petrol quad, the three vital parts parents should look at are engine, weight, and tires.

3. Engine

Since a kids petrol quad caters to children, it is essential to find a quad with limited engine power to prevent children from overspeeding. However, engine power should vary on the purpose and use of a kids petrol quad. For children looking to use a quad for recreational and cruising purposes, a 50cc engine is enough. In case you need more power, we advise parents to get their child a quad bike engine that is not more than 100cc.

4. Tires

If your quad’s purpose is for road cruising, then we recommend that it should have road tires to enable a better grip better on flat roads. However, if you want a more versatile quad bike that can handle both on and off-road situations, a universal tire is perfect for you. On the other hand, if you require a quad that can get through challenging terrain, off-road tires are great for you.

Having an excellent set of tires is vital in terms of controlling your quad bike. Therefore, the better your tires are, the more chances you have of getting through challenging and demanding terrains. In addition, a rider’s safety also relies on how good their tires are. Therefore, a kids’ petrol quad must have the correct tire type depending on its use.

5. Weight

To ensure a safe riding experience, a healthy weight to engine power ratio should be observed by buyers. Since manufacturers already streamline their petrol quad engines for children, we should look at the weight capacity instead. Therefore, we advise younger riders to get a 350kg up to 400kg quad for an optimum experience and performance.
