Driving technique for ATV

To run an ATV


Push the body forward over the handlebars. Increased weight on the front wheels reduces the risk of toppling. On steep uphill slopes you can take a "snowmobile position", with one foot on the stigbrett and a knee over the seat with your foot against the luggage carrier behind. This way you can quickly jump off if the machine should go. Alternatively, you can emphasize the front baggage carrier.


Seek to put the center of gravity on the back of the ATVn. You can also emphasize the luggage carrier behind. On steep downhill slopes where there is a risk of overturning, you should get off the machine and let it roll down on the engine brake with the 4-wheel drive switched on.


You reduce the risk by moving the center of gravity, by leaning the body upwards towards the ground.
Avoid steep slope because it is difficult to jump off the machine if it overturns. If you still have to slope, place both feet on the footbed up the slope. You should jump off if the machine is going to rock or overturn.


The number of accidents with ATV is low when we compare with other relevant vehicle groups. Accidents happen anyway, and some of these are when driving on roads. When driving on the road, it is recommended to pay special attention to the fact that most ATVs are equipped with rough and partly soft tyres. Atv, with its square construction and terrain tyres, is better suited in terrain and on forest roads where low speed is maintained. When driving on the road, it is recommended to keep the speed low. Remember that you are less visible than in a car and as a driver you are responsible for being visible to other road users.

It is the driver's full responsibility to ensure that the use of ATV takes place in safe forms. See more about "SECURITY"
