  • Terrain

UTV’s aren’t designed to be driven on public roads. Make sure that when you are out exploring, you are driving on marked trails. This will ensure that you don’t come in contact with any larger vehicles, and that you are also in accordance with the laws of your state.

  • Riding Etiquette

You are going to be driving at a pretty decent speed for long periods of time. Make sure you keep your arms and legs in the UTV at all times and that your passengers abide by this rule as well. You might consider some roll cage handholds to install to make riding a little safer and secure for all involved.

  • Tires + Windshields

 What weather conditions are you driving through, and what activity are you doing? Here's a few points to consider when getting ready to ride. Mud, snow, sand, or dirt? Are you racing, leisurely driving, or exploring? Depending on what your activity and destination is, it will determine what type of tires are best for your experience. These same tips go for your windshield. Depending on the terrain and activity, your choice might differ from a full to a half windshield, front or back- or a combination of both.

  •   Gear

When it comes to gear and riding a UTV, there are a few specific items you must have. You will need to make sure you have a solid helmet recommended under UDOT. Don’t forget the eye-ware, long pants, long sleeve shirts, and good riding shoes. In some cases, you might need gloves and or other hand protection.

  • Accessories and Emergency

Unexpected weather, terrain, or accidents may occur and the best you can do is be prepared. One way to do this is to have a first-aid kit on hand. If you need the extra storage space in your UTV, you might consider installing a roll cage organizer to make this easier. A Fire Extinguisher +  Interior Roll Bar Trim Kit is also nice to have on hand as well as a UTV Tow Strap.
