RAZOR DIRT QUAD 500 36V ELECTRIC ATV Off-roading is a lifelong sport. It’s one of those hobbies that can be enjoyed at any age and at any pace.

YOUTH QUAD TEST: KAYO FOX 70

There are many choices for youth ATVs out there including the Kayo Fox 70, but the most important thing to consider when choosing one is safety.

I started racing almost seven years ago when I saw the KTM Jr. kids at a supercross event and told my dad I wanted to race.

2020 KAWASAKI KFX90

By the staff of Dirt Wheels 2020 KAWASAKI KFX90 Riding isn’t just for grownups! The young ones want to hit fun trails and deserve to experience the pure joy of what ATV off-roading is all about. The best way to do that is to start young, and the best and safest way is to start off small. Some of us stretched our legs on two-stroke mini quads, bikes and three-wheelers back in their day, while others here at Dirt Wheels started riding on modern four-strokes. Kawasaki’s KFX90 is rated for riders 12 years of age and…
