Mini Quad ATV – Safety Features For Kids
With the growing popularity of outdoor extreme sports, more and more people are beginning to follow the trend. Due to the sport’s growing popularity, kids are starting to ride Mini Quad ATV’s as well. However, due to the high possibility of accidents in this type of sport, we as parents have a responsibility to make sure the ATV’s we purchase for our children are equipped with the proper safety features, which ensure our children’s safety at all times, and at the same time, allows them to enjoy the sport.
The Mini Quad ATV is equipped with state of the art safety features that ensure our kids safety, and our peace of mind. Children are not as technically skilled as adults, which require a different setup of features; not normally found in bigger and more advanced ATV’s. The mini quad is equipped with two headlights, both low and high beam, which is a standard in all mini quads.
It is equipped with two taillights (LED) and brake lights, which serves as a signal and warning for turning left or right, and a signal for when the vehicle has or is about to halt to a complete stop. The quad is equipped a tire pressure gauge, which measures the tire’s tire pressure. It is equipped with safety controls, like a thumb throttle, electrical start, brake lever (normal braking procedures), kill switch (emergency stoppage), and a remote controlled vehicle safety switch that remotely controls the desired speed of the quad. The mini quad is equipped with a safety tether, found at the rear of the vehicle, which acts as an emergency kill switch. All mini quads come with their own individual ignition keys. The mini quad has a standard twelve volt motorcycle battery that powers the quad’s electrical demands. All Mini Quad ATV’s come with a standard safety foot rest, which allows stability for its riders.
Aside from the quads safety features, it is recommended to make our kids wear additional safety gear, such as helmets and padding, for added safety and protection.
