Everything You Need To Ride Your Quad Bike In Winter

Quad Bike

If you and your family love to ride quad bikes, to get the most out of them and use them all year round, you will need to ensure you have the correct equipment. Having everything you need to stay safe on a quad bike in winter will also help you stay comfortable and increase your enjoyment of this adrenaline-fuelled activity.

Below are some of the equipment you should get to ensure you and your family’s safety when riding your quad bikes in winter.

Prepare Your Quad Bikes

You will want to ensure that your quad bikes are in excellent condition before taking them out in the winter and giving them a winter service the same as you would a car is an excellent idea. Many places that offer high quality yet cheap road legal quads and also children’s quad bikes for sale will provide repairs and servicing, so you can take your quad bike to where you go it to get it ready for some winter fun.

Wear Lots Of Layers

When you are riding a quad bike in the winter, you can get cold depending on the conditions, and the best way to combat this is to wear lots of thin layers rather than thicker ones. When you get too warm, you can remove a layer that will help you cool down, but don’t forget to take some extra layers with you as well in case you get too cold and would need to add a layer.

Keep Your Hands Warm

When you are riding during the winter, it is easy for your hands to get cold, and when that happens, you do not have as much control of the vehicle as your hands can be numb. The best way to combat this is to get some quad bike mittens that will keep your hand warm while riding, but also allow you to control the vehicle. Ensure that the mittens are not too thick, as although they may keep your hands warm, you may not be able to control the quad bike as easily.

Make Sure You Have Hi-Vis

You will also want to ensure that you and the family are wearing high-visibility clothing when riding your quad bike in the winter. Visibility in extreme weather conditions can be low, so wearing high-vis clothing will help you keep an eye on each other and make sure that nobody gets lost.

Buy Helmets With Sun Visors

The sun is much lower during the winter, which means the light can be flat, affecting the overall visibility. You can deal with this by having a helmet with a sun visor that offers UV protection and is also polarised. The sun visor can help protect your eyes and skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays, and the polarised sun visor will also help improve your vision in the varying light conditions.

When you make an effort to ensure that you stay safe and comfortable riding your quad bikes, you can increase the amount of fun you and your family have. Always check the conditions before going riding, and if the weather is too bad, stay at home.
