Before You Ride

Never underestimate the importance of a proper safety check. Begin by inspecting your ATV’s tires, brakes, and suspension. It’s vital to ensure your quad is in good working condition before embarking on your journey.

Tires are the only point of contact between your ATV and the trail. Check for proper tread depth, uneven wear, and proper inflation. A good rule of thumb is to inspect your tires monthly and before each ride.

Brake Safety

Your brakes are the safety net that prevents accidents. Check the brake pads for wear and proper alignment. Make sure the brake lever is functioning smoothly and not too sensitive.

Riding Attire

The right gear can make all the difference in a safe ride. Wear appropriate clothing, such as long pants, a helmet, gloves, and overalls. Don’t overlook eye protection, as it can help prevent injuries.

Glove Safety

Gloves are a crucial part of any ATV riding outfit. Look for gloves with grip and abrasion resistance. Properly fitting gloves can help prevent injuries from the hands and wrists.

Trail Readiness

Before hitting the trails, make sure you know the area and any local regulations. Be aware of potential hazards such as steep inclines, sharp turns, and obstacles like rocks, tree stumps, and water crossings.

Trail Awareness

Stay alert and aware of your surroundings at all times. Be mindful of other ATV riders, hikers, and wildlife. Always wear ear protection to avoid hearing loss and stay visible with reflective gear.

First Aid Kit

Accidents can happen, even to experienced riders. Pack a basic first aid kit with essentials such as bandages, antiseptic wipes, and pain relievers. Know how to administer basic emergency care and when to transport injured riders.


By following our ATV safety checklist, you’ll be well on your way to a fun and safe ride. Remember, safety is the key to a pleasant experience on the trails. Always prioritize your safety and the safety of your passengers. Happy trails!
