What to consider when buying a go-kart for kids?

Go-karts can be gas or electric powered with the later models being far more popular. The electric models can run for around 45 minutes from a single battery charge which is enough time to have lots of fun. Keep in mind that the usually need up to 12 hours to charge so it’s wise to charge them overnight.

Look for models that feature a steel frame for maximum durability and preferably rubber wheels. If you don’t like the idea of electric go karts you can also opt for models that feature pedals which are ideal for younger children.

Pick a go-kart that features safety measures like safety belts, shoulder straps, and bumpers. Depending on the age of your kids you should go for a kart that is suitable for them. There are go-karts that can reach top speeds of 3 mph which is too much for young kids. Look for models that allow a max speed of around 10mph for kids up to 10 years old, while for ages 3-6 you shouldn’t go for karts that can reach over 5mph.

Make sure you pick a model from a reputable manufacturer that comes with a long-lasting warranty. Look for models for which you can easily source replacement parts like tires and batteries as you will need to maintain the go-kart for the years to come.
