If you have decided to introduce your child to quad riding, you certainly wouldn’t be alone, as many parents who ride want their children to experience the thrills of riding an ATV. Obviously, safety is extremely important, even more so for young riders, and with that in mind, here is a list of safety essentials that you must provide for your child when they ride a quad.

High-Quality Helmet

This is an essential piece of kit for anyone who rides a quad, and for a child, you need to make sure that the helmet is a good fit. Too small and the child will get very hot and this will encourage them to remove the helmet, which you do not want, and if the helmet is loose fitting, it will not offer the essential protection in the event of a fall or collision. If you plan to buy your child a road legal off-road buggy, make sure you buy the right sized helmet at the same time.

Good Quality Gloves 

Another must-have item, a good pair of gloves will protect the hands, while still giving finger control, and make sure the gloves are a good fit. If you want to be sure your child wears the protective gear, then let them have a say in the style and colour. If they think they look cool, they will be happy to wear the right equipment.

The eyes must be protected when quad riding and a pair of goggles that fit well will not only protect their eyes, they will also not have to compromise their vision. It is very easy to hit an insect while riding, and a wasp in the eye is not something you want your child to experience, not to mention the dirt and mud that comes with the territory.

Protective Boots

Trainers are not suitable for quad riding, as they do not odder any ankle protection, so you should buy a pair of riding boots that are the right size. It is important to have a good grip when riding a quad, and a pair of boots that are designed for quad riding are advised. You can check out a great guide on what to wear when riding an ATV, which might help.

Thick Pants

Essential for leg protection, a pair of thick denim jeans might work or failing that, you can buy specialist clothing from an established online retailer. Your child could wear a pair of leggings that are worn over trousers, which will give them added protection, and they could be waterproof, which is great for wet riding.

A Thick Sweater

Rather than wearing a jacket, which might restrict movement, a thick sweater is an ideal thing to wear when quad riding. Avoid any top that has tassels or buckles, as these can easily get caught, and with a reasonably tight-fitting top, your child has protection without the restrictions of a jacket.

With the right safety equipment and a well-maintained quad, your kids will have the time of their lives, as they experience the wonders of riding an All-Terrain Vehicle.
