These ATVs are utility based vehicles and are not meant for racing.
At Polaris, we stress hard on the fact that young and inexperienced riders are not physically capable of handling power-packed weighty ATVs. Hence, our engineers have come up with lesser engine capacity rides that do not acquire high speeds; some are incorporated with parental control features to ensure a young rider’s safety. Here’s a list of a few important tips for young ATV junkies out there.
**Young ATV riders ought to be physically and mentally strong enough to manoeuvre these mean machines. Riding an ATV calls for good hand to eye coordination, emotional maturity, visual perceptions and instant reasoning for vehicle manipulation. Parents must supervise the rider. Kids below the age of 10 should never be allowed to hop onto an ATV, however small in size the ATV may be.
**The youngster must undertake proper preparation and practice in advance. Polaris regularly conducts workshops and ATV events for new bees. Several licensed instructors also offer training programs offering professional ATV riding related guidance. Every first timer should make it a point to attend one of these.
**Passenger riding is unadvisable for below 16 year olds as proper ATV managing skills like speed control using weight shifting tactics are tricky for a new rider.

**Only the designated trails must be ridden upon. Polaris youth ATVs should never be driven on concrete roads.
