ATV is short for ‘all-terrain vehicle', also known as a quad bike. An ATV or quad bike is a motorized off-road vehicle with four-wheel drive, a suspension-based seat, and handlebars for steering. They can be further divided into ‘Type I ATVs', which can only be operated by a single person, and ‘Type II ATVs', which are able to carry an additional passenger.
Automatic ATVs are most popular as they allow riders to focus on exploring their surroundings rather than changing gears. Semi-automatic ATVs are perfect for those who want more control and the ability to switch gears in changing situations and terrains. This allows riders to explore challenging terrain such as lava fields, with a skill simply not open to cars.
ATVs and quad bikes are a thrilling way to travel – offering riders the chance to explore off-the-beaten-track locations that cannot be accessed by traditional vehicles. Being a bouncy, safe way to explore places otherwise inaccessible, ATVs are joy to all those looking to explore the wilderness in life.
