Things to Consider When Buying an ATV
More Articles

Buying your first ATV can be as daunting as when you purchased your first car. There are many different makes and models available, and many different things to take into consideration. For example, do you know the difference between a utility and a sport ATV? Do you know the proper size for your body weight and height? Is there one type of model that is better than another type? Should beginners start with one model or size and then "graduate" to the next one as their skills improve and their comfort heightens? The first step is research, and there are many different ways and places to conduct your research.

Utility quads are pretty much what they sound like. If you are looking for an ATV for chores on a farm, to haul trailers, or to work in a camping ground, then you are looking for a utility quad. These are heavier, with stiffer shocks, and more powerful engines. They are not oriented towards the sort of activities people enjoy who are into recreational riding; however, they are well suited for recreational trail riding. They are easier to learn on than sports quads, and they will go off-road as well as any sports ATV you are considering. They are easiest for new riders because they are the largest and heaviest of the quads, and they are comfortable to ride. Utility quads almost make up the majority of the ATV market, and so you will definitely come across a number of them while shopping for your new ATV.

The sports quads are an altogether different beast. They are made for speed, and so they are much faster and lighter than utility quads. They have lighter bodies, powerful engines, and come in either five or six speed. They take longer to learn how to ride, but they are well-suited for people who want to get a high trail speed and make jumps.
